FOX DERANGEMENT SYNDROME: White House Escalates War at Fox News

U P D A T E: The "WAR ON FOX" continues, but with a bit of backpeddling. Now its not quite so much FoxNews as maybe just Beck and Hannity. Odd thing is that Bobby Gibbs, and apparently his masters, seem unable to distinguish between news and opinion journalism. Here's the UPDATE in full:

The quite pathetic image I come away with from all of this is the little kid who owns the only football in the neighborhood and who stomps off home with it when he's not chosen as quarterback for the after-school pick-up game. In effect what we are seeing in the President and his senior staff are severely emotionally arrested yuppies.

How dare Fox News journalists challenge the White House? HOW DARE THEY!!! The audacity of them! Fact checking an Obama Administration Official. OUTRAGEOUS!

Well, there we have it. The White House flacks have completely blown their cool by trying to demonize a news organization and destroyed what little credibility they were clinging to in the process. Are they really that childish and insecure? It certainly appears so.

Here's the story. Its a pretty compelling read.

  1. The more hysterical the White House gets, the more desperate they become. In the end, FOXNews benefits with higher ratings. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot!

  2. Rupert Murdoch said as much the other day. Maybe THAT'S what made them lose it so completely....

    Rahm, good luck with that temper of yours.

  3. Still waiting for the red phone to ring on Beck's desk......it's getting amusing

  4. Hi Ran: The Jack Tapper piece is quoted in the Wake Up America Link.

  5. Thanks for the link and great piece!!!!

  6. The sole reason Obama and his cronies are attacking FOX news is because they enjoyed having complete reign over the media last election, and now for issues, as Anita Dunn so graciously said. They will now try to delegitize FOX before the next election because if they don't obey, ruin them. That's the Chicago way!
