In White House E-Mails, Staffers Wrote of Delivering Dead Fish to Fox News, Blacklisting Network
Thursday, July 14, 2011 | Kristinn

Posted on 07/14/2011 10:04:09 AM PDT by kristinn

In e-mails obtained by Judicial Watch, Obama White House staffers wrote of their contempt for Fox News, including efforts to blacklist the network from coverage.

Deputy White House Communications Director Jennifer Psaki sent an e-mail on October 23, 2009, to Jenni LeCompte, then-Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs at Treasury that said, "“I am putting some dead fish in the fox cubby – just cause”.

In another e-mail on October 22, 2009, Psaki calls Fox News anchor Bret Baier a "lunatic."

“…brett baier just did a stupid piece on it -- but he is a lunatic”.

Other e-mails show the White House lied when it denied trying bar Fox News from a round of media interviews with Kenneth Feinberg, Treasury's 'executive pay czar.'

One e-mail from the White House to LeCompte at Treasury is explicit in their desire to blacklist Fox: “…we’d prefer if you skip Fox please,” wrote Dan Vega, Director of Broadcast Media.

Totally expected from a white house staff of morons under the leadership of the most corrupt, lying, arrogant, useless POS POTUS that has ever soiled the peoples house, Mac, the crybaby liar, daddy himself.

If ever there was a person who had no redeeming qualities it would be him, bar none.

Does ANYONE in this pathetic excuse for an administration even know what the truth is anymore?

Lies, lies and more lies are all that have ever come out of this WH.

From the top down, the lies flow like the Potomac River and the stench of hypocrisy fill the air -

Someone tell me when this nightmare is over.

Brett Baier a lunatic? He is well filling the shoes of Britt Hume as one of the more reasonable people in all of television.

There would be national media outrage and demands for impeachment if a republican white house tried this against cbs, abc, pmsnbc, cnn, etc.

No doubt this story is being swept under the rug.

The Clinton people were highly partisan but the Obama White House seems to have combined the worst traits of Chicago thugs and junior high kids.

No surprise here,these ignorand fools don't have to work all they have to do is sit around trying to get one over on the American people..If they had any brains at all they would know no one watches the communist networks and we get most of our news from Free Republic or other conservative web sites.. The rest we get from Rush and Glenn We are not ignorant like they are all they are doing is making sure their Black Communist Muslim will not get reelected..

They hate Bret Baier? Geez... of all the hosts on Fox, Bret has to be one of the most even-keeled and least controversial ones there. He’s hardly some kind of “lunatic”.

If an administration can't hold a dialogue with Brett Baier and Fox News, how might one think they will hold their own on dealing with Iran?

These people are not governing or anything resembling it. They are Chicago thugs steeped in marxism goals, lavished in taxpayer squeezed wealth and gimmie's.

They are so deranged they can’t see straight and hate anything Fox. If they saw a fox on the road, they’d run over it. Bret seems more sane than 99.9% of the people in DC.

Judicial Watch actually did something interesting? After many years and pulling in over $100 million dollars you'd think they would get somewhere on something.

Way to go JW. Now could you please reject your non-profit corporation status and stop sucking on the taxpayer tit?

And these juvenile delinquents have jobs in the government, while making snide comments that Sarah Palin is just not intellectual enough for the Oval Office. Her emails sounded much more responsible than those posted by these snot-nosed obamacrats.

The entire White House of these United States has become a dead fish. I am ashamed that reprobates such as these people are allowed to enter, let alone live and work there. This country has a very dark stain on its history because of these people.

No....Truth comes from God....there is no truth if you are an atheist. They deny Natural Law because it presupposes a Supreme Being. Natural Law is all about cause and effect....reality....where common sense and truth originate. They can never acknowledge the truth-—Marxism is a Big Lie——because it rejects Natural Law—the basis of the US jurisprudence and the Constitution.

That is the culture war—to deny truth—deny God—deny natural design of man with fundamental freedoms. To deny God is to deny our god-given inalienable rights. (The US is the last true-God-based country on earth and the Marxists are trying to destroy it, because of the individualism and dignity and worth given to all human beings..... so man can redesign human beings to their godless, homosexual image to create useless narcissistic idiots who are devoid of reason and logic, so they can be easily herded).

A dead fish from a democrat is a badge of honor.

I’m reminded of the official portrait of Lester Maddox,
He’s standing in the entry hall of the Governors residence
and on the hall table behind him is a dead fish wrapped in
a copy of the Atlanta Constitution.

Love how liberals go on about how mature and serious they are - have all the answers for everyone, while in reality the are petulant children unable to resolve the paradox of desiring to control everyone whilst outwardly pretending to be all about individual freedom. I swear to God, liberals are borderline schizophrenic.
