NYT: Jay Carney Made an ĎAngry Phone Callí to Fox Exec. Following Anti-Obama Video
The Blaze ^ | 6/21/12 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 06/21/2012 10:40:03 AM PDT by Nachum

White House press secretary Jay Carney made an “angry phone call” to a Fox News executive after the network aired a scathing video review last month of President Barack Obama’s first three years in office, the New York Times reported.

According to the Times, Carney told Michael Clemente, Fox News’ senior vice president for news, that the video had crossed the line even for “Fox & Friends,” the morning show where it aired. Two unnamed Democrats reportedly told the newspaper about the call, described as a “private conversation.”

As The Blaze previously reported, the four-minute clip featured a series of “then and now” comparisons, including the national debt, jobless rate and gas prices. It was met with heavy criticism from both sides of the political spectrum: Media Matters said it “crossed a new ethical line” while Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey questioned whether “a news organization [should] produce and publish attack ads like this?”

Fox News Executive Vice President for Programming Bill Shine ultimately disavowed the video, which has been pulled from Fox’s website.

“The package that aired on FOX & Friends was created by an associate producer and was not authorized at the senior executive level of the network,” Shine said in a statement. “This has been addressed with the show’s producers.”

Is it just me, or is Hot Air acting more like HuffPo these days?

the video had crossed the line

I believe the “new ethical line” that was “crossed” is called the TRUTH.

I can see why they are so horrified...welcome to our world Jay C-we live with the truth everyday...

A Fox News VP submissively caving to crying and moaning from the Obama mouthpiece (Carney) is discouraging and sets a poor precedent. If the video was based on facts - Obama's own words as recorded on video - and compared to what he says and does, today, it is hardly 'crossing an ethical line'. That the video was run on the morning 'news' show - which contains tons of 'fluff' - is hardly relevant. It probably received more views that way (compared to being run on, say, Hannity).

This election is going to be tough and if Fox News is going to cut and run the first time some Obama lackey whines, it's going to be a lot tougher. Although Fox News is hardly a conservative outlet it's the sole cable TV outlet (with any audience) for Republicans and a conservative POV. They have to man up when Jay Carney or any other Obama stooge makes noise or they are going to be seen as little more than yet another echo chamber for Obama, and the American media has enough of those, thank you.

So FOX news is letting Jay Carney and media matters decide their content now? Maybe the “FOX is liberal” types here on FR have a point.

Is Jay Carney related to Harry Reid?
I see a lot of resemblance especially in attitude.

Sure.

The video gave Carney a Pucker Factor of about 10.

No doubt. That is one fearsome dude. I've known grown men who'd rather rip their own heads off than face an angry Jay Carney. True story...

It's a shame that I couldn't take Carney's call. I would have simply told him that I would not tolerate being berated by Obozo’s errand boy.

And maybe they don't.

Fox News is hardly the conservative megaphone we might like it to be and it certainly isn't the Republican party propaganda outlet the left pretends it is but Fox News is far from 'liberal' and those who make that claim are being unrealistic and unappreciative of the fact that Fox News does give the conservative point of view a voice, even it it isn't the video version of FR.

Actually, I was just being sarcastic, and should have labeled my comment as such. I have no use for the fools who criticize FOX as being “liberal” when they think FOX should be wall-to-wall right-wing propaganda (but only on the few issues the complainers care about).

Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey questioned whether “a news organization [should] produce and publish attack ads like this?”

Ed acts like FOX isn't telling the truth. FOX could have went far further and just fabricated some false documents to shame Obama like CBS. But the whole blasted point is that no one needs to produce false documents to attack Obama when the truth works quite well.

Here is the subject ‘Fox & Friends’ clip:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9ACQuhYYDA

Also, the advertisement that preceeds the clip is worth watching. It’s a takeoff on the Dos Equis “most interesting man in the world” ads. This one is about Ubama, “the most arrogant man in the world”. LOL! It ends with, “Stay ignorant, my friends.”

If you're talking about it, it's not a "private conversation" , is it?
