Obama Continues To Be Terrified Of Fox News
chicksontheright ^

Posted on 10/12/2009 8:47:55 AM PDT by big black dog

The New York Times has an interesting update on the never-ending spat between the White House and The Fox News Channel (FNC).

The White House communications director, Anita Dunn, said this weekend, ”We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent. As they are undertaking a war against Barack Obama and the White House, we don’t need to pretend that this is the way that legitimate news organizations behave.”

Wow. Is there any wonder why Chris Wallace said, after being rebuffed during Obama’s news show extravaganzathon a few weeks ago, that Obama’s administration was ”the biggest bunch of crybabies I have dealt with in my 30 years in Washington”? I mean, COME ON. You cannot, with any credibility, say that, for example, MSNBC is “a legitimate news organization” and then claim otherwise about FNC. You just can’t.

Here’s the thing. Whenever the White House gets its panties in a twist over FNC, the FNC ratings skyrocket. So it’s not like FNC is freaking out over this or anything. In fact, I would submit to you that they’re kind of reveling in it a little, which, honestly, they SHOULD. Obama’s giving them all sorts of clout and power by claiming that they have none, and he looks foolish to avoid them, and by extension the millions of Americans who watch them.

It’s kind of cutting off your foot to spite your face, really. If you want to change the minds or convince or sway people to believe in you and your policies, isn’t it kind of a good idea to use a platform which REACHES the people you’re trying to sway?

FNC’s ratings are skyrocketing because people don’t take kindly to being lied to on the other news channels.

The Extreme Makeover of Fox News: Analyst Marc Lamont Hill [far left radical]
Accuracy In Media - AIM Column ^ | October 2, 2009 | Cliff Kincaid

Posted on Saturday, October 03, 2009 9:59:20 PM by ETL

Who would plaster his Twitter page with police mug shot photos of convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur? Fox News contributor Marc Lamont Hill did. At least until David Horowitz and Accuracy in Media took notice and wrote about it. Now the page features photos of boxing great Muhammad Ali. Hill's MySpace page is also gone.

There are other changes as well. The tributes to Shakur and black racist Khallid Muhammad, known as "America's Black Hitler," have disappeared from his web pages. The articles were saved, however, and can be found here.

(Excerpt) Read more at aim.org ...

Fairness Doctrine to apply to Fox News also. Never mind that 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% of the media is on the leftist dimocrats side. Just ONE for the right is waaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy too much.

Radicalizing black males (and females, for that matter) is very dangerous for the USA. These guys tend to be violent and can do some serious damage. Our prisons are full of them. Not because they are black, but because they are violent and desperate. They are empowered to some extent at the moment. Be careful....

The WH (Emanuel, Axelrod, Jarrett and ultimately the ONE, 0bama) are afraid of Fox News Channel because they are fearless in presenting news and commentary. They don’t take notes from the WH and they tell the truth. FNC is kicking the butts of the other cable networks (CNN would be really, really low if not for the free TV’s blanketing airports) in terms of ratings because they report the news and do it truthfully and are not afraid to have on-air debates with representatives from both sides, even blowhard communists like Dr. Lamont Hill.

FNC rarely has only one side to a story. All the other news media paint pictures with their liberal bias hiden by their agenda. FNC really is Fair and Balanced.

An honest person would want this, but if you are lying you don't want exposure. Therefore the lying Obama is smart to avoid Fox news. He is not so smart to condemn them because it draws attention to them. So I guess what I am saying is Obama is ultimately a dumb liar.

If a media outlet is properly being a watchdog for Americans and keeping the people informed of what our obese government is doing, all politicians would hate all media.

Becuase there is only one that is digging and reporting while the rest do their tricks and eat their treats, viewers are going to gravitate to what they see as “in their best interest.” Our best interest is knowing what is going on in government and how it is affecting the country.

RE: Obama's (former) "Green Jobs Czar", Van Jones

Van Jones became a revolutionary communist following the 1992 L.A./Rodney King Riots (58 dead)
various sources

Posted on Sunday, September 06, 2009 10:19:07 AM by ETL

"Jones was arrested during the L.A. riots and spent a short time in jail. "I met all these young radical people of color," he recalls, 'I mean really radical: communists and anarchists. And it was, like, "This is what I need to be a part of." I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary.'..."

__________________________________________________________

From David Horowitz's FrontpageMag.com /DiscoverTheNetworks.org:

"Throughout its history, one of RCP's [Revolutionary Communist Party] principal objectives has been to foment civil unrest in the United States. The most notable example of such efforts occurred on April 29, 1992, when RCP members looted and trashed the downtown and government districts of Los Angeles, triggering the infamous Rodney King riots. During the days immediately preceding the violence, RCP -- which maintained close ties to the L.A. gangs known as the Crips and the Bloods -- had circulated throughout South Central Los Angeles a leaflet featuring a statement by RCP National Spokesman Carl Dix, titled 'It's Right To Rebel' -- a quote popularized by Mao Zedong.

Encouraged by Dix, RCP activists helped lead the riots that would leave 58 people dead, more than 2,300 people injured, some 5,300 buildings burned, and $1 billion in property damaged or destroyed. On the ten-year anniversary of the rioting, RCP member Joseph Veale fondly recalled the violence as 'the most beautiful, the most heroic civil action in the history of the United States.'"

They are not trying to 'reach' their people to 'sway' them. They already know they have their minds because the have their paychecks. What they are desperately trying to do is to quash the truth from the one source they know they don't control - FOX.....If they could, they would execute every last one of its employees.

How lucky we are to live in a country that finally has competing news sources!

The rats will never get over the fact that they no longer have a monopoly on the selection and spin of the daily news through their newsrooms at ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, the NY Times, and the Washington Post, etc., the way they did for decades.

As they say, “If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. If you want to anger a liberal socialist, tell him the truth.” As they also say, “Shine the light of truth on liberal socialists and they scatter like cockroaches.” It is interesting that this time the cockroaches have decided to mobilize. It’s a war Ubama cannot win, because the truth will (almost) always prevail.

It will be fair game to go after Fox, now. If they can be demonized enough, the 0bama admin will be able to jail them all on trumped-up “hate speech” charges and nobody in MSM will complain, and so most people will go along.

Watched Marc Lamont Hill once on O’Reilly and damn near threw a shoe at the TV. Ever sense I mute that motormouth and will never listen to what he has to say. So far my watching O’Reilly show takes 15 minutes (I record it so I can mute or speed past the crap) with all the liberal junk and O’Reilly is a dunce for having him on.

Liberals, Community Organizers, Anarchists, DO NOT have policy nor answers.
They need people to focus their unhappiness, anger, bitterness, dis-satisfaction on a target, so that the Community Organizer/Liberal can present themselves as the alternative

The executive branch simply wants from Fox the same right it exercizes with all the other news organs: its “jus primae noctis” as it were.
That is, they demand the right to review all questions before hand, toss out the ones they don’t like and add questions they wish to emphacize.
This wasn’t at all unreasonable in the former Soviet Union or Oceania.

Remember, Obama's good buddy is Chavez, a true believer in crushing media who don't tow the line.

By the way, anyone here now thinking twice about "hate crimes"? Well, are you? This is the ultimate reason that that camel's nose is in the tent.

So, can it happen in America? Could a government actually shut down a national network for "treason"? Can they jail Christians for "hate crimes" against sodomists?

Well, take a peek up north. In Canada we have our "Human Rights Commissions" both federal and provincial. They are run by jack-booted fascists empowered by hate crimes legislation and appear uncontrollable by either Liberals or Conservatives. Scary times in the land of the frozen tundra, the perfect place for all your gulag needs.

One could argue that to treat Fox News differently from any other news organization is a First Amendment violation, interfering with a free and independent press.

If a considered, judicious choice of examples were made, perhaps just one or two could chill the fervor of many. Right, Vince? Right, Ron?

There's no need to risk a rebellion when most just need to be shown how things work, so they'll get back in line.

The government still wants the taxes they will yet pay, after all.

What pantywaists Zer0 and his minions are. It's true, the more they whine and cry the more people tune in to FNC if only out of curiosity. I forget who said it but it's true, Don't pick a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel. I guess the same holds true for someone who counts his viewers in the millions.
