Skip to comments.Obama Continues To Be Terrified Of Fox News
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, Were 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 dont 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 Obamas news show extravaganzathon a few weeks ago, that Obamas 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 cant.
Heres the thing. Whenever the White House gets its panties in a twist over FNC, the FNC ratings skyrocket. So its not like FNC is freaking out over this or anything. In fact, I would submit to you that theyre kind of reveling in it a little, which, honestly, they SHOULD. Obamas 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.
Its 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, isnt it kind of a good idea to use a platform which REACHES the people youre trying to sway?
FNC’s ratings are skyrocketing because people don’t take kindly to being lied to on the other news channels.

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.

"I, however, will remember Dr. Khallid [Muhammad] for what he truly was: mentor, teacher and revolutionary hero" -Marc Lamont Hill

From David Horowitz's
PROFILE: KHALID ABDUL MUHAMMAD
Muhammad referred to Jews as people whose ancestors were cannibals who crawled around on all fours in the caves and hills of Europe and slept in [their] urination and [their] defecation... for 2,000 years. He characterized contemporary Jews as slumlords in the black community who were busy sucking our [blacks] blood on a daily and consistent basis. He said that Jews had provoked Adolf Hitler when they went in there, in Germany, the way they do everywhere they go, and they supplanted, they usurped. And he declared that blacks, in retribution against South African whites of the apartheid era, should kill the women,
kill the children,
kill the babies,
kill the blind,
kill the crippled,
kill the faggot,
kill the lesbian,...kill them all.
On subsequent occasions, Muhammad praised Colin Ferguson, a black man who had shot some twenty white and Asian commuters (killing six of them) in a racially motivated 1993 shooting spree aboard a New York commuter train, as a hero who possessed the courage to just kill every goddamn cracker that he saw. He advised blacks that there are no good crackers, and if you find one, kill him before he changes. He told a Donahue television audience in May 1994 that [t]here is a little bit of Hitler in all white people. He characterized black conservatives as boot-licking, butt-licking, bamboozled, half-baked, half-fried, sissified, punkified, pasteurized, homogenized Nigger[s]. On May 21, 1997 he told a San Francisco State University audience that the "white man" is "a no-good bastard. He's not a devil, the white man is the Devil." In September 1997 he said, "If you say you're white, goddammit I'm against you. If you're a Jew, I'm against you. Whatever the hell you want to call yourself, I'm against you."
From the Harlem Film Festival, a pro communist revolution propaganda film on the story of Joanne Chesimard (my words). She (Assata Shakur/Joanne Chesimard) is the godmother of late rapper Tupac Shakur (see Section 5 of my FR Home page: the Brinks robbery and triple murder). Tupac's stepfather (Joanne's brother) was deeply involved in that murder-robbery in which two police officers and one Brinks security guard were gunned down in cold blood.
ASSATA (aka Joanne Chesimard)
Perhaps the most wanted woman in the history of the United States.
Assata Shakur/Joanne Chesimard, was questionably arrested and sentenced for killing a cop in the infamous 1973 New Jersey Turnpike shootup of a car carrying Shakur, and two other Black Panthers, one of whom was also killed. Assata received three bullets in the attack. Sentenced to Life, she escaped in 1979 from maximum security prison in NJ to eventually emerge in Cuba under Fidel Castros protection as a political exile. Assatas [Joanne Chesimard] writings and presence in Cuba have brought her a huge following as an icon, a heroine the Che Guevera of Black Liberation a freedom fighter to thousands of young peoples throughout the world. The State of New Jersey still holds a million dollar bounty on her headwanted dead or alive!

Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology."
Although it [The New Black Panther Party] says it sees capitalism as the fundamental problem with the world and revolution as the solution, the new party does not draw its influences from Marxism or Maoism as the original party did. Instead, in a carefully-worded, roundabout form of ethnic nationalism, they say that Marx based his ideology and teachings on indigenous African cultures, and that the NBPP therefore need not look to Marxism or Maoism as a basis for their program, but can look to ideologies that stem directly from those African origins.

Marc Lamont Hill isnt Just An Admirer of Cop-Killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, Hes His Publisher
Marc Lamont Hill, Sept 7, 2009:
"I am thrilled to announce that Mumia Abu-Jamal has joined the Barbershop as a weekly contributor!! His column, Live From Death Row, will appear every Wednesday starting next week.
Mumia Abu-Jamal is one of the worlds most celebrated journalists, freedom fighters, and political prisoners. Since his early days in Philadelphia, Mumia was an active member of the Black freedom struggle. From his award-winning journalism to his involvement with the Black Panther Party, Mumia has devoted his life to Black liberation. Wrongfully incarcerated since 1981 for the murder of Officer Daniel Faulkner, Mumia has continued to place a spotlight on various forms of injustice around the globe through his numerous columns, commentaries, and books. Mumia has generated international support for his own case, which has been one of the most glaring and repugnant reflections of the criminal (in)justice system."
Marc Lamont Hill isnt Just An Admirer of Cop-Killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, Hes His Publisher:
Evil ALWAYS fears the light!
The Coward in Chief is afraid of everything that he can’t control.
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.
The wicked flee where no man pursueth...
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.
Imagine the psychotic reaction of the Hussein administration if FOX were actually a CONSERVATIVE network!
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)
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.'"
If this administration cant deal with FOX News, how does it deal with things like, oh, Afghanistan?
That is an hillarious cartoon, and to be so accurate to boot is devastating.
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.
And this is what is driving the White House?
I knew it was bad and watched
which grossly understates the issue.
And then I saw
In looking at his economic policy, its not directed at taking down just the US but at the G7, (not G8 as they are complicit)
Right with you. They have no problem turning the force of the government against us, but won’t turn that force against our real enemies.
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. Its 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.
Love the cartoon at the top of this thread!
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.
It’s great he’s on FOX, because he’s always up against someone smarter, saner, righter, and usually, PRETTIER!!
Obama has a lot to be afraid of: The Truth.
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
It is an admission the other newscasters are all “on the plantation”
Nobel Peace Prize winner Baraq Hussein Obama declares Fox News is his enemy and the Taliban is his ally.
The TRUTH is the enemy of dictators.

That’s why I either listen to Mark Levin or watch sports....
“cutting off your foot to spite your face”
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.
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.
Obama knows the power of ideas - he’s afraid of FOX...
That is what makes this whole thing so silly. Fox outdoes all the other news networks combined!!!!!
Agree, Fox is not conservative, it just gives conservatives a forum that others won’t....Such a pathetic wuss the left is that someone gives the other side a voice..
Thanks for the ping!
They’re also sending e-mails to Scarborough on MSNBC, unless that was a joke. I’ve never seen such an intruso administration. Where is the gravitas? Where is the dignity of the office? Where is the hope that we can change the United States back to what it was?
They just can’t get away with it...( yet).
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.
