Bill O’Reilly: Does Pres. Obama Hate ‘All Powerful’ Fox News?

O’Reilly Factor producer Jesse Watters is on Martha’s Vineyard covering Pres. Obama’s vacation. At a White House briefing yesterday, Watters asked Obama spokesman Bill Burton why the administration seemed to be “so thin-skinned with regards to Fox News?” Burton didn’t “accept the premise” of the question from Watters, an O’Reilly producer known for his ambush interviews.

Bill O’Reilly used the clip in his talking points memo last night, then brought Major Garrett into the conversation:

And O’Reilly wasn’t finished talking about the media. Later, he compared MSNBC to “the double A baseball team” the Toledo Mud Hens. He even had a poll (labeled NOT A SCIENTIFIC POLL) asking which news agency do you trust the least. You won’t be surprised by the results.

> Update: Before Keith Olbermann corrects O’Reilly on his show tonight, we’ll do it here. A TVNewser reader tells us the Mud Hens are actually a AAA team not double A.
