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:
wed prefer if you skip Fox please, wrote Dan Vega, Director of Broadcast Media.
SOP for leftists...
Gee, I wonder where they learned the dead fish trick?
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
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.
Hannity will have fun with this.
A badge of honor.
These are the people who think Helen Thomas, Claire Shipman, David Gregory et al are normal.
Brett Baier a lunatic? He is well filling the shoes of Britt Hume as one of the more reasonable people in all of television.
This bunch makes the Clintons and their pack of juveniles look like patriots.
If the OTHER news agencies had ANY integrity at all, they would be denouncing this in the harshest terms.
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.
Chicago tough guys they’re not...
How do you think the ‘gunrunner’ stuff is feeling to them right about now...
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.
I think that may qualify as a criminal act.
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”.
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.
