After another round of attacks from the White House, this time from higher levels of the Obama administration, Brit Hume, a senior political analyst for Fox News, went to bat for his network.
On the Oct. 19 broadcast of Fox News Channel's "Special Report with Bret Baier," Hume gave his best effort to rationalize why White House Chief of Staff Rahm and Obama Senior Advisor David Axelrod used two Sunday morning news show appearances to beat up on the highly rated news channel. According to Hume, it was because they disapproved of the stories his channel broke over the last few months.
"It is a little hard to discern a strategy behind the White House campaign of criticism of Fox News unless it's simply this - an attempt to quarantine Fox and thereby discourage other media outlets from following up stories did originate here," Hume said. "The White House is clearly stung by the revelations about former aid Van Jones. He turned out to have harbored views that were out there where the buses don't run and he was forced to resign. And the White House could not much have cared for the hidden camera expose of ACORN - an organization with which the president had a past association and one whose voter registration drives have benefited the Democratic Party."

OUCH! and so true.Good for Brit.
Good one Brit, they are bambi’s little poodles, total journowimps. How do they even look at themselves in the mirror each morning. Pathetic.
The Mao suit was a nice touch. He is going to have the biggest show on Cable at this rate.

How CNN, Others ‘Like Being Patted on the Head & Given the Seal of Approval’ by W.H.
How CNN, Others like kissing Obama’s ass & turning viewers into Fox News watchers
This seem so appropriate now. http://www.therockymountainfoundation.org/images/315_9-15-08_NR,_Obama_Pet_Peacock_-_jpg.jpg The fact they can’t force feed FOX has proven a problem for the administration.
It’s amazing to watch how this admin went after Rush first, but has since shifted to Fox news.
I miss Brit!
And .. this is the same tactic the dems used on Rush .. and Rush got the same result .. a bigger audience.
These dems are just plain TOO STUPID to be running a government. God have mercy on us .. only 39 months to go.
The fringe media “journalists” are whores. I never liked Helen Thomas, but at least she is showing SOME SIGNS of behaving like a REAL journalist. You can sense even SHE is getting fed up with being used by the Obama Administration (Okay, no jokes about how Helen Thomas couldn’t be a whore if she tried, but you get my point).
No one has mentioned this (as far as i know) :
Glen Beck (The much hated Glen Beck ) used to work for the wonderful CNN.
Was CNN bad then and is good now?
or was Glen Beck good then but is now bad ?
...its hard to figure
Brit seemed to get a kick out of Beck’s Mao telephone man.
Well, who didn’t? That was gold.
“Here at Fox meanwhile the attacks have been something of a boon, especially to the highly opinionated and wildly popular Glenn Beck who has installed direct phone line on his set and invited the White House to call if anyone there has a beef,” Hume continued. “So far, no calls.”
So far, NO CALLS. CHICKENS with nowhere to roost so they sh!t all over everything including their own nest. No one cares what the other “news” channels have to offer. They know it is spoonfed from the enemy, digested and regurgitated onto the public, and the PUBLIC, WE THE PEOPLE, don’t like being “throwed up on.”
Yeah, these thugs drove Rush’s ratings into the stratosphere and doing the same thing for FOX/Beck.
Pray for America
What the hell do they think CNN and ABC are in it for? And they told them they 'shouldn't follow Fox'. LOL.
At that time in his life it was probably just a job.
