The White House’s war on/with Fox News has triggered a huge range of reactions in the media. WaPo‘s Ruth Marcus wrote “Obama’s dumb war with Fox News” which got overwhelming response on wapo.com and Facebook.
ABC’s Jake Tapper questioned WH Press Secretary Robert Gibbs about how they could declare that Fox News was not a “news” organization. Gibbs’ response, “that’s our opinion.” FNC’s Sean Hannity said, “It seems like the White House is developing an enemies list.”
MoveOn.org launched a petition to urge Dems to stay off Fox News.
By supporting the President’s selective media engagement, you cripple the power of the industry. And while it may work in your favor now, it sets a precedent that can and will backfire in the future. But it’s not about my opinion, so you weigh in. Is this “White House war with Fox News” appropriate presidential behavior?
