“I’ve Always Been Struck By How Obsessed the President and the White House are with Fox News”

On ABC’s “This Week,” George Stephanopoulos and his roundtable did a little “Reliable Sources” thing where they looked at media coverage, based on what Pres. Obama told CNBC’s John Harwood last week about the coverage of him on Fox News. That part here. Here’s what was said after playing the CNBC clip:

Stephanopoulos: You know, George, I’ve always been struck by how — and it’s not too strong a word — how obsessed the President and the White House are with Fox News.

George Will: Well, it’s the discordant note in an otherwise harmonious chorus, I suppose that’s why. But three great love affairs in world history are Abelard and Heloise, Romeo and Juliet, and the American media and this president at the moment. But this doesn’t matter over time. Reality will impinge. If his programs work, he’s fine. If it doesn’t work, all the adulation of journalists in the world won’t help
