Fox v. Obama

The Sleuth” reports today on the cold relationship between Sen. Barack Obama and Fox News, following that whole madrassah thing.

    Sources tell The Sleuth that the Obama camp has “frozen out” Fox News reporters and producers in the wake of the network’s major screw-up in running with the erroneous Obama-the-jihadist story reported by Insight magazine.

A FOX News insider adds a bit more details to the story, telling FishbowlDC that it was Senator Obama who called FOX News Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes prior to the freezing out and both calls were made without the knowledge of Obama’s staff.

The insider tells us that, while Ailes did not apologize, the conversations were cordial. Our source said that Obama spokesperson Robert Gibbs made an “error in judgment” by attacking Fox News and now supposedly freezing them out, which makes this Foxie’s quote in Akers’ story all the more noteworthy: “If true, perhaps Mr. [Robert] Gibbs should reconsider that ill-advised strategy given his candidate is trailing by 20 points in the polls.”
