White House steps up attacks on Fox News

Fox News “is geared toward making money.”? Seriously? Oh the shame. How could a network news organization DARE to make money? How so very Capitalistic of them…

Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the sole purpose and intent of having a business supposed to be directed to MAKING MONEY? I thought that was what business was all about. Unless you are a dedicated non-profit organization, the entire reason for going into business is to make money, to profit, to grow and to make MORE money.

Several critics questioned the wisdom of the move while one of President Barack Obama’s top adviser pledged Sunday that administration officials would still appear on the top-rated cable news network.

Doesn’t the President, and his staff, have more pressing matters than worrying about Fox News, their profits and who will appear where?

Personally, I don’t think ANY Obama administration official would appear on Beck or Hannity. I am doubtful that they would grant an interview to the White House correspondent, Major Garrett. I am also certain that Obama and his administration are not STUPID. They are evil, but not stupid. They know that Fox News and it’s on air personalities have done their homework, and will embarrass the Obama administration for ALL the world to see.

Last week, White House communications director Anita Dunn said Fox News operates “almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party.”

Last week Glenn Beck exposed Anita Dunn as a solid admirer of Chairman Mao. The Radical Truth About Anita Dunn. Surely Dunn isn’t just striking out blindly? In retaliation? Surely the communication director of the Obama White House, who, by the way, has been repeatedly asked by Glenn Beck to come on, or CALL his program and point out exactly where he is wrong in the opinions he espouses, surely Dunn isn’t just PMSing? Is she?

On Sunday, Rahm Emanuel, President Barack Obama’s chief of staff, said, “It is not a news organization so much as it has a perspective.”
