Fox sticking with schedule instead of Obama (no Prime-Time Press Conference for FOX)
YahooNews ^ | 04/27/09 | Staff

NEW YORK – The Fox network is sticking with its regular schedule over President Barack Obama this week.

The network is turning down the president's request to show his prime-time news conference on Wednesday. The news conference marks Obama's 100th day in office. Instead of the president, Fox viewers will see an episode of the Tim Roth drama "Lie to Me."

It's the first time a broadcast network has refused Obama's request. This will be the third prime-time news conference in Obama's presidency. ABC, CBS and NBC are airing it.

I will watch FOX for sure at that time! It will be interesting to see what sort of ratings the other networks get compared to FOX.

This will enrage the liberals!

Dear Leader must have all frequencies! Anything less is sacriledge!

I'd watch the Westminster Dog Show over Obama. Or a WNBA preseason matchup. Or a Starland Vocal Band reunion concert.

The number of times the MSM nets refused Bush airtime requests numbered in the dozens, maybe more.

It is about time indeed. We do not need the endless repetitions of self-serving hogwash and evasive blame-shifting. Of course the alphabet media will continue to suck along.

For the time being, he's putting all his poop in the bills he sends Congress.

Well, you've got to do what you can to maintain continuity with the other network programming decisions.

I love it.

and, I HIGHLY recommend LIE TO ME to all Freepers. It is one of the best new shows on television.

One of my favorite things they do is that when one of the characters points out a specific facial gesture (Disgust, Anger, lying, etc) they show a couple examples — and some of thier favortie targets are Obama, Biden, Bill C, and AlGore. To be fair they also show Bush, Cheney and Rice a lot too, but the Dems seem to be in the majority of faces shown.

Obama abuses the privilege of television networks. He thinks he is more important than he really is.

Didn't some of the main networks not show Bush's State of the Union Addresses?

So in other words, all networks are going to be airing “Lie To Me”. That’s just plain funny.

May be a subliminal slap at the ONE. If it is, congrats to whoever made that decision. I am really glad to some at least one news outlet,network that is not getting on their knees for this abortion of a president.
Change.

Thank God. I actually thought they were going to screw with American Idol again...this is fine and Lie to Me should thrive in the ratings.

Dr. Lightman: Through careful analysis of Barack Obama's facial expressions you can tell whether he is being truthful or not.

Dr. Foster: Well, there is a slight tic of his left eyebrow.

Lightman: Although interesting, that is not his give away.

Foster: His neck muscles appear tense. Is that it?

Lightman: No. You're looking at the periphery. Look at the center.

Foster: Something about how he uses his lips?

Lightman: Precisely. When he is moving them you can be certain that he is lying.

LOL I had the same thought. Air “Lie to Me” to ZerØ. What’s the difference, might as well go with our own show. LOL

Yeah, I like the clip of Clinton shaking his finger at the camera with the famous, “I did not have...”. I’m looking forward to them using Pelosi and her statement regarding her knowledge of the use of waterboarding.

They should just publish the transcripts of his speeches.

When you see it in print and start analyzing what he actually said, it become immediatly apparent how vacuous it is.
