Time For Obama Administration to “Grow up!” They Are Trying to Punish Fox
Greta Wire ^ | Tuesday, November 20, 2012 | Greta Van Susteren

Posted on 11/20/2012 5:48:24 PM PST by kristinn

The Obama Administration is playing dirty. Trying to put a price tag on access — either a news organization plays ball and accepts what they dish out without challenge, or the news organization is excluded, punished...

...and now the latest…. DNI Director James Clapper told Capitol Hill last week that the DNI did not know who took the term Al Qaeda out of the talking points that was given to Ambassador Susan Rice. It turns out that is not true and the DNI released a memo to the media last night indicating that DNI Director James Clapper was wrong last week when he said that (incidentally two plus months after the murders.) The DNI / Intelligence removed Al Qaeda from the talking points memo given to Ambassador Susan Rice. But that’s not all – it isn’t just the “who is on first” at the DNI, it is also what the DNI did to Fox last night. The DNI LEFT FOX NEWS CHANNEL OFF ITS DISTRIBUTION LIST last night when it released this new memo to the media.

You know why Fox is left out 3 out of 3. We at Fox are not simply accepting what they say, what they dish out. We are looking for facts and corroboration when there are inconsistencies and discrepancies. To the extent we get anything wrong is because the Administration is doing whatever it can to thwart us getting the facts – or even to exclude us.

They are trying to punish us into going away — hoping we get their message that we will never have access to them as long as we dare to challenge what they put out. And guess what? What they have put out and what we have challenged shows they are cagey and not giving the straight story...

In the run-up to war, I remember Peter Arnett explain that he had to spout Saddam Hussein's party line, or he and CNN would be kicked out of Iraq.

As for FNN, after Hussein won the nomination in 2008, it was kicked off the Obama campaign.

IOW, this column merely clarifies and emphasizes that any network with access to the Obama White House is not a news organization, but rather a propaganda mill.

It’s not childish, if they could imprison Greta and block Fox from the air they would do it. It’s Fox and idiots like O’Reilly that need to grow up.

Well maybe Fox should count their blessings.

In Russia pesky reporters are frequently found dead if they ask the wrong questions about Putin.

I think the word Obama used during the campaign was “revenge.”

Fox should scream bloody murder, not say the WH should “grow up” or is “acting chhildish”. These are gulag tactics and teh left will gfet worse and worse. Fox needs to demand that it stop, taht it is a scandal, that it means the Obama administration does NOT represent all Americans.

They also should protest every day on every show.

And that is just for starters. They are bringing a water pistol to the gunfight. The left intends to put them out of business.

Exactly. Acting “childish” is nonsense; acting like commie revolutionaries is more accurate.

Exactly!!!!!!!!

I love Greta, she is madder than a hatter over the “murder” of 4 citizens .. and I hope she doesn’t relent until we know ALL THE TRUTH.

And .. I love how she always refers to the event as “murder”.

Well .. without FOX and O’Reilly, the rest of the country would not know anything about the mess in Benghazi, or the fact it was a TERRORIST ATTACK against the USA.

“out of business” REALLY ..??????

Do you know what the viewership is of FOX ..??

On the 3rd night of the debates - FOX was at 29 million.

The other networks - all added together - didn’t get that much viewership. THIS is why they HATE FOX.

The other networks (who support Obama), are only too willing to bad mouth and smear the name of FOX - just for their own petty, juvenile selves.

Agree regarding the MSNBC and CNN pukes. Not so much with the majors.

They have been threatened and caved. Afraid their seats on the front row would be taken by BET, Jet, Ebony and Essence...

The left is heady over their election win. Unions pushing against their “greedy” corporate bosses (Wal-mart, Hostess, etc.), religious liberty under attack (Hobby Lobby, Christmas Nativity scenes being removed, etc.), pushes to get gay marriage rammed thru many states. Hoping and praying the left overplays their hand.....The best hope they will be stopped is if enough sheeple in the middle who voted for Obama wake up and push back.

Have you not seen O’Reilly pretend he doesn’t know why Obama lied about Benghazi? Have you not watched O’Reilly again and again dismiss people who try to tell the truth on Obama?

And yes, the democrats are trying to run all conservative commentators and Fox out of business. That is how far they will take it once they have the power to do so.

Have you never heard of “net neutrality” or the “fairness doctrine”?

You better wake up because O’Reilly is not an effective champion for conservatives and the left plans on shutting us down.

There is a war coming in this country. I, for one, am not about to genuflect to this “ruling party” and their constituency of laggards, lay-abouts, takers, the uneducated, unemployables, and societal fringe groups who all now think they rule this country.

Asking FOX to be vigilant and forge ahead. The road is fraught with danger. Seek the truth to be ones shield. Backing down and Standing Down is not an option. Agreement FRiend.

Don’t just talk, support Greta and (others like her), at Fox - tell them to keep going and that you appreciate it.

We MUST keep at this Benghazi incidence.
Can’t let them get away with murder again!

It’s the women at Fox who have been on top of Benghazi from day one. Catherine Herridge, Greta and Judge Jenine (big time).

Thanks kristinn. Prayers for those seeking the truth. A truth many have seen, years ago before this took place.

A truth. Till the women of our nation become willing to go out and tell the truth of what is taking place in our nation nothing will be better. The women (many women) are upset and willing to take a stand. May the ranks and numbers of this nation’s women taking a stand grow to proportions which will overwhelm our enemies. Ladies, the men cannot do what has to be done with you, the ladies. God Bless the Ladies.

“The left intends to put them out of business.”

The Left intends to destroy and kill any opposition. From anyone. Ask Andrew Breitbart. Or Sean Smith, Ty Woods, Chris Stevens.......

Please beware of Fox_News. Imo, FN wrongly ignores Congress's Article I, Section 8-limited powers, along with Article V and the 10th Amendment, in federal public policy discussions. In other words, by ignoring these key constitutional statutes, Fox is arguably protecting the Obama regime and corrupt Congress.

For example, please consider the following concerning both Obama and Congress wrongly ignoring Article V which you're probably never going to hear from FN. Given that the states have never delegated to Congress via the Constitution the specific power to tax and spend for healthcare purposes, Congressman Jessie Jackson Jr. had appropriately been repeatedly proposing a resolution for Congress to propose a healthcare amendment to the Constitution. But govtrack.us gives the prognosis that the bill actually never had a chance of being passed for the following reason. (You may have to scroll down the page a bit.)

'The resolution's title starts with "Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United." (-10%)'--govtrack.us, H.J.Res. 30: Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States regarding the right ...
It wouldn't surprise me if Obama's shunning of FN is being staged.

How did you ever assume I was a supporter of O’Reilly ..??

I’m a supporter of FREE SPEECH.

O’Reilly can say whatever he wants .. it’s his program and he pays the bills. If FOX wants him on the air .. that leaves me free to choose if I want to watch.

Most of the time I don’t even watch him.

And .. the real truth about Benghazi is way beyond what anyone thinks .. but its under investigation and so it has not come out yet.

Absolutely! Judge Jeanine is on fire over Benghazi. FOX should do reruns of her interviews with the families of the men who died at Benghazi.
