What a crybaby! Whaaa Whaaa Whaaa. Bush put up with a media that doesn't like him... I guess that's just too much for barack to handle. What an immature brat. Hasn't he got anything better to do than cry about the media?!

The race card is worn out so this is what he has to do now.

So far Obama has not won any of his pissing contests with Fox News or conservative talk radio.

The more he and his flunkies attack them the more viewers and listeners the independent media has.

This is beoming like Chavez in Venezula where he fought so had to stamp out media criticism.

When they can't win the debate strongmen like Chavez and Obama are forced to use the powers of the police state to silence their critics.

Chavez already has and Obama probably will sooner or later.

Why not pick a fight with a news organization that is dedicated to oppose everything you do, and that is dedicated to remove you from office?

this will (further) outrage the FoxNews led conservative movement. That's a good thing.

I only like Fox when they're showing Hell's Kitchen. Fox news is BS.

If barack cannot handle that one news organization does not like him, what is he going to do when we get attacked again? Give them a stern APOLOGY and beg them not to hate us anymore? He already went around the world apologizing to every leader that would listen... Barack is no leader and has no spine.
He needs to quit worrying about his popularity and just do his job!

Obama is acting like a spoiled brat. He has the adoration of 99% of all news media and he can't stand it that one or more do not fall down and worship him. Give him a bottle and change his diaper, he is the biggest baby we ever had as President.

FOX is not a news network. It's opinionated journalism. It's entertainment not information.

MSNBC is an Obama lapdog that says whatever the White House tells them to say.

FoxNews is a conservative lapdog that says what ever the leaders and opinion makers in the conservative movement tells them to say. You guys never stop pimping your status as victims of the so-called Main Stream Media.

Oh, I understand, no one is supposed to question the conservative media? Okay then, glad that's cleared up.

FOX News is unlike ALL other news outlets with regard to advocation of partisan policy. This is fact. FOX is less than 1/2 news and more than 1/2 Political Tool.

This is fact.

If America were a henhouse, FOX is the fox "protecting" it.

Fox News has a conservative point of view.

But it is hard to call them the lapdogs (my phrase or the lib media which you stole) of the "conservative movement" whatever that is.

Obama is in the White House which makes him the most power and most dangerous man in the world.

He needs an active and critical Fourth Estate to hold his feet to the fire and keep him honest.

If he doesn't get it from the adoring pro-Obama lib news media - and he isn't - then it has to come from Fox News or the nation is in big trouble.

GROW UP! Obama has enough to worry about - other things rather than whatever the media says. The media should be charged when lying or when they induce panic! I don't care if it's CNN or FOX, they are all alike, they are ruining this country, they are starting race wars, they are biased, they lie, they try to get people to be afraid. They pit people of all colors against each other. I dont' even watch the news anymore, it's a joke.

Speaking as a conservative and a strong believer in our country, I am so relieved that we have FOX News questioning our liberal/socialist leadership.

I think management of ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CBS, and CNN should hire cheerleaders with pom poms to lead cheers each time a news item comes up regarding Obama. I mean their bias favoring Obama is so obvious that it's shameful and sickening. Where is their objectivity and hardcore investigative reporting on the lack of accomplishments by this President?

Like I said, it's shameful and sickening.

I'm sure I will read a lot of rebuttal from liberals, but I stand by my remarks.

ABC, CBS, NBC, CNBC, MSNBC, CNN, USA TODAY, THE NYT...on and on.....ALL these so-called "news" organizations do nothing more than chant Obama praise (like the crazy teacher in New Jersey that had her brainwashed students sing-songing HmmmHmmm, Barack Hussein Obama....).
And one --- ONE --- news organization has the guts to sit up and tell the truth about what Obama's handlers are doing to this nation, and he is 'outraged.' Please. This would be hilarious if it were not so terrifying.
