Fox's Volley With Obama Intensifying

There are 1042 comments on the www.nytimes.com story from Oct 12, 2009, titled Fox's Volley With Obama Intensifying. In it, www.nytimes.com reports that:

Attacking the news media is a time-honored White House tactic but to an unusual degree, the Obama administration has narrowed its sights to one specific organization, the Fox News Channel, calling it, in essence, part of the political opposition.

“We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent,” said Anita Dunn, the White House communications director, in a telephone interview on Sunday. “As they are undertaking a war against Barack Obama and the White House, we don’t need to pretend that this is the way that legitimate news organizations behave.”

The entire MSM kisses Obama's ass (Nobel Peace Prize) and gives him a free pass on everything! Fox doesn't, they are the only (honest) news media putting up a "Let's debate or question some of these very radical policies" there is nothing wrong with questioning and debating.

The Dems don't want that, they want to ram Left Wing Agenda Crap Down Americas Throat, without any debate or questioning. Why? Because it's Wrong As The Day is Long!

WHY?

The diversity crowd can not deal up with diversity. Keep in mind Bush gave a few interviews to NBC.

If you haven't noticed down under, Fox isn't objective or impartial on their "reporting".
Selective at best and the mouthpiece for right wing extremists and potential domestic terrorists at its worst.
But, they bleed red, white AND blue.....

Maybe the dems can get Al Frankenpuff to start a radio show from the left side, and kick Fox's azz?

What? you say they already tried that, and went broke?

Well, cut off my balls and call me shorty.

To put it mildly, why do you think they call it FOX News? It's not about truth but being cunning, distorting the truth. The truth hurts fright wingers and only jackasses wouldn't know the difference. That's why I call it, more appropriately, FUX News.

Obama and the democrats are fascist by definition...

the opposition to the leftists is not deconstructed point by point and won in a logical manner, the democrats can not win that way...

ergo, opposing opinions must be quieted and not faced..

Dollar Reaches Breaking Point as Banks Shift Reserves

By Ye Xie and Anchalee Worrachate

Oct. 12 (Bloomberg)-- Central banks flush with record reserves are increasingly snubbing dollars in favor of euros and yen, further pressuring the greenback after its biggest two- quarter rout in almost two decades.

Policy makers boosted foreign currency holdings by $413 billion last quarter, the most since at least 2003, to $7.3 trillion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Nations reporting currency breakdowns put 63 percent of the new cash into euros and yen in April, May and June, the latest Barclays Capital data show. That’s the highest percentage in any quarter with more than an $80 billion increase.

World leaders are acting on threats to dump the dollar while the Obama administration shows a willingness to tolerate a weaker currency in an effort to boost exports and the economy as long as it doesn’t drive away the nation’s creditors. The diversification signals that the currency won’t rebound anytime soon after losing 10.3 percent on a trade-weighted basis the past six months, the biggest drop since 1991.

America’s currency has been under siege as the Treasury sells a record amount of debt to finance a budget deficit that totaled $1.4 trillion in fiscal 2009 ended Sept. 30

People only see what their perception allows them to see. We tend to “hear” only those that support our own feelings. Fox throws out right wing red meet to their viewers 24 hrs a day. To me the “Fair and Balanced” moniker and the insistence that it is journalism is a bold face lie.
Typically the left is more honest about biased stories. This is to say they state their liberal affiliation and bias openly.
I like well sourced journalism, not the shill screams from the nuts both on the left and right. Give me the facts, just the facts.Taking in account my first statement - How long will it take for an angry right winger to incorrectly call me a liberal because of my fox statement?

Obama and his elitist need to to step out of their ivory tower and realize that the American people (so far) still embrace freedom of speech.

When the governent tries to silence or marginalize any portion of the media, there's something very wrong.

And, btw, marginalizing and silencing minority sections of society is what the diversity crowd has been screaming against for ages. Hence the power entrusted to groups like ACORN.

Now that Obama wants to marginalize a news network, can we call him a hypocrit?

Come on! The foreign relations side of FOX is Obama policy. There is much about Obama talking softly to tyrants. Whooopeee dooo! We are still in Iraq! We are going to expand in Afghanistan! The money is still going to be spent! The money is going to spent on our spy, international police and military industries. Get it fools.....new world order in foreign policy! Now we can talk domestically. The Obama mama has not eliminated any law or department to give us our freedom. There is so much more that can be said, but just from that...he is a fraud! But hey, he played basketball...We have no natural enemies. We have made others enemies.

Shorty, I don't think that a sitting Senator can have their own talk show. Would that be a conflict of interest? He went off air befor running for Senate.
FYI Air America is strong and on the air.
