Fox’s Major Garrett gets interview with Obama

NEW YORK (AP) – President Barack Obama will give an interview to Fox News Channel’s Major Garrett, perhaps signaling a thaw in relations between the network and administration. The White House confirmed Tuesday that Garrett will be included among a round of network interviews that the president is giving Wednesday in Beijing. Garrett also posted news of the interview on Twitter.

Fox and the administration have been in a public fight since former White House communications director Anita Dunn said the network acted like the research or communications arm of the Republican Party. The president pointedly avoided Fox when he gave a round of interviews to Sunday shows about his health care plan.

Garrett, Fox’s senior White House correspondent and a CNN reporter before moving to Fox, will have 10 minutes with the president. Other network correspondents traveling with the president – Chip Reid of CBS, Chuck Todd of NBC and Ed Henry of CNN – will also get interviews. ABC gave up its slot when Jake Tapper spoke to Obama earlier.

It’s the first time Obama has spoken specifically to a Fox correspondent since he talked with Garrett in July. Obama gave one other interview to Fox as president, to Sunday morning host Chris Wallace in February.

Fox’s Major Garrett gets interview with Obama

I am fully convinced that the White House, and ALL of Barack Hussein Obama’s minions are so afraid of FOX News because they fear that FOX News could possibly topple the administration by exposing it for the crooked, anti-American regime it truly is.

They fear that if the truth comes out, Americans will see Obama for the weak poser and socialist that he is. They KNOW that FOX News isn’t giving them the free pass that the other major news organizations do.

The White House was annoyed by Fox’s aggressive coverage of protests against the president’s health care plan over the summer. Dunn’s comment that Fox is “more of a wing of the Republican Party” brought the administration’s displeasure into focus.

Since then, Dunn has left the job, which she said she was only doing on a temporary basis. Dan Pfeiffer has replaced her as White House communications director.

The White House was annoyed by the TRUTH! That is the sum total of ALL parts. The Obama administration can’t stand for the truth to be told. Truth has nothing to do with the way Obama wants to govern and truth has nothing to do with a socialist agenda.

Maybe FOX does lean to the right for the most part, most of the FOX News on-air people DO seem to be rather conservative, and that IS a good thing. Beck went after Van Jones, he posted a few stories on him, some quotes, and then Jones own words, and Van Jones quit his position within the Obama administration.

Next, Beck took on Anita Dunn, the former White House communications director. All Beck did was use Ms. Dunn’s own words, the words she spoke where she praised Mao Tse-Tung as being one of the biggest influences in her life. That is NOT exactly what you want to hear from anyone in a leadership position in the White House.

Mao’s policies and political purges from 1949 to 1975 are widely believed to have caused the deaths of between 50 to 70 million people. SOURCE

That’s the kind of leadership, and influence we most definitely don’t need in this nation, and I, for one, applaud Glenn beck for the effort he put forth and the obvious success he achieved!

And today, we hear this about the Obama policies regarding bailouts, ie: stimulus programs;

Here’s a stimulus success story: In Arizona’s 15th congressional district, 30 jobs have been saved or created with just $761,420 in federal stimulus spending. At least that’s what the Web site set up by the Obama administration to track the $787 billion stimulus says.

There’s one problem, though: There is no 15th congressional district in Arizona; the state has only eight districts. SOURCE

The article goes on to say that this is all just a case of a few mistakes, wrong entries, human error and so forth, but personally, I am thinking that even ABC may have outed the Obama in this report. Crooks and liars everywhere, and you have to admit, just to get ABC News to post any story that’s negative in it’s presentation of Obama and Company is nothing less than a major miracle.

Errors? Maybe. Outlandish thinking and political affiliations in the Obama administration? Oh hell yes! Commies, Socialists, racists, Mao worshippers, Obama’s White House runs the gamut when it comes to political moonbattery.

FOX News doesn’t hesitate to bring the truth to the forefront of American and world news, I hope Major Garrett asks the really HARD questions so Obama has to think on his feet. When he has to speak for himself, and not rely on the teleprompter, the entire world gets a solid look into the man that would be a world power.

Yes, that was sarcasm…

    Major Garrett seems a rather nice guy, a little to easy going and not aggressive enough for my taste, but then half-a-loaf. You are right Fred about Obama and those around him fearing FOX and that is justified because FOX will not let them slide on many issues the MSM seems to avoid. Van Jones and Anita Dunn are prime examples as you point out. Certainly FOX leans right and it is alone in that spot. As I see it we have no centerist news network in this country. I have doubts about such a thing existing anywhere in the world. If I want complete objectivity I pick up a math book anything else is subjective and subject to the whims of the author. You are right about Obama lack of ability to think on this feet. Maybe, just maybe Major will nail him on something–we can hope.

    The WH is getting a little scared, but not scared enough yet. We’ve got ‘em on the run, but they’re just jogging right now :)

    Fox News is the smallest, remotest little island in the ocean of biased news. Fox News doesn’t even BEGIN to compensate for the bias of what I call the DEM — the Defeatist, Elitist Media.

    Fox News may lean right, but at least it gives voice to those who oppose its take. This is MUCH more than the MSM/DEM do on a daily basis.

    Mr Obama is going down. In just ten months, he is already on the proverbial ropes. He is pushing too hard, too fast, angering not only the Conservatives but the Left — who believe he is insufficiently left FOR the Left.

    He has too many angles to please. And little talent to do so.

    Well, let’s remember El Presidente only does things that he thinks benefit him. So in other words -

    I’d like to think that Garrett would ask him some tough questions but I think he’ll just be another candy ass and ask questions that dont mean shit, or have any bearing on what this g’dmnd half breed asswipe is doing to this country. I’d like to think and hope maybe one of America’s billionaires would step up and buy one of the major newspapers and join Fox in going after this crookedass bunch of thieves, but then I guess I’m just dreaming. Guess I’ll just say goodnight and head for bed.
    As they say in Aussie land….G’noight Mates (I think) LOL

    I am at the point where if IT represents the MAObama administration and IT’S lips are moving… IT’S no doubt lying. I am so sick of trying to figure out the insanity!!!! They all need to be tried as traitors and shot at sunrise.

    That the White House fears FNC is telling, IMO.

    Once BHO appears on Fox, conservatives, who typically watch FNC though FNC isn’t as conservative as I’d like, every word BHO utters will be dissected by bloggers and other right-wing pundits.

    You can bet that BHO’s interview will be carefully scripted. When he speaks off the cuff, he’s a disaster.

    I’d be willing to bet that the Obama mafia gives him the questions to ask and will only let him ask those questions. Also, I’d bet that they have a ‘private discussion’ just before the interview, possibly with some SEIU thugs.. er.. members.

    IMO this is all an attempt to placate a group that are restless and quiet down those among their base and moderates who are wondering why he won’t face FOXNews.

    In other words, move along folks nothing to see here.
