So the Obama Administration finally admits (like other well-known, commonly accepted factoids like "the sky is blue" and "grass is green"), that Fox News amounts to nothing more than a political media arm of the Republican Party and...well, people just freak out.
See, when Bush was in office, he was reknowned for his disdain for the press, but at least Bush hated every journalist. Not just one specific news organization. Bush knew that things like "questions" and "examination" led to things like "discovery" and "ending secrecy" so he steered clear of the press whenever he could.
But Barack? He's an open book. He talks to journalists every day. Hell, the press has started to complain that he's too available. Available to everyone, that is...but Fox News.
It is no secret that Fox, run by right-wing icon Rupert Murdock, is a Republican tool. They parrot the GOP party line, they use Republican Party talking points as their template for "reportage," and they consistently attack Obama at each and every turn, just as they did Clinton and every other Democratic politician.
But when the Obama administration decides to cut them off and deny them access, well...that's just not nice. Now, the poor Fox folks- they feel hurt. The attacks on them are just unfair. They're just like every other news organization, after all. Are they GOP oriented? Nooooo. Heavens nooooo.
To prove it, just go to the Fox News website. You'll see just how fair they are. Just take a look at some of their headlines:
"Obama Threatening Press Freedom?"
"10 Reasons for Moral Outrage"
"The World Turns On America and It's Weak White House"
"American YOU Can Still Stop ObamaCare!"
"Time For Obama to Stop Attacking Fox News and Grow Up"
Yes. Barack Obama is the one that needs to grow up. Not this bastion of fairness and responsibility.
