  • I think this entire discussion doesn't actually address the issue put out there in the question - how can we tolerate a administration who has very publicly stated that they would like to "marginalize" an entire television station because they don't like what's on it?! It should not matter what lies a station is or isn't reporting, it still is not the responsibility of the government in general OR the white house specifically to encourage the public to watch one channel over another! period.

  • They aren't a news org. they are an opinion bases political group of shows. At least Moring , Keith Olberman , Dylan Ratigan , Chris Matthews.....don't bill themselves as much

  • Opinions are not factual news.

  • the WH is mad because they are telling the truth, have you ever noticed that during Glenn Beck the WH only says bad things about him but never say anything about what he is saying, that's because it is the truth. Fox News isn't blind and sees right through this admin. I use to watch MSNBC but I don't anymore.

  • All news channels have "opinion" shows. All channels lean one way or the other. When Huffington speaks, she is giving an opinion.

    Personally, I think it's a nasty attack by the White House to go after one particular news channel. There are plenty of newspapers, magazines, on-line news, etc. that are much more biased than Fox, and they aren't trying to attack them, are they?

    It is not the government's place to censor the news.

  • Fox News has just as much News as MSNBC and CNN. But of course the owner of Fox News isn't Up Obama's ass like Jeffery Emmelt (GE/MSNBC Parent Co head). Looks lik e the administration is trying to scratch MSNBC's back. With all the Fox Viewers, I hope this will bite them in the butt.
