Will the White House Marginalize MSNBC, next? Back Peddling?

Credit CNN here. Not only did Campbell Brown follow up with a question about MSNBC after this sorry hack went into Fox-bashing mode but actually posted a write-up noting her lame retreat when confronted. Say, did you know that the White House is “calling everybody out,” not just Fox News? Keep watching those Sunday morning chat shows; I’m sure Axelrod and Emanuel will be on again soon to lay out their arguments against CNN and MSNBC.
The money line? “We’re going to speak truth to power.” The ultimate expression of self-righteous victimhood, offered here by … a senior advisor to the most powerful man on earth.

  • The video of the interview at the link is hysterical. So do you consider MSNBC biased? Well, umm, we aren't singling any network out, we call it out when we see it. And the only place you see it is at FOX? Well um, well um, well um

  • Wow will republicans ever stop whining about how they are being discriminated against and demonized. Republicans and Fox are causing their own problems. Fox did not win anything they where let in under strict circumstances because their affiliate actual News stations had to whine because of who signs their paychecks. Anyone who is sane and watches fox news knows why the white house is doing what it is doing and can at least partly agree.

  • Oooh, momof030404, you make a good point !

    When the next Republican administration comes into power, how about if they shut down MSNBC, NPR and NBC !!

    Oh, wait. THEY wouldn't do that because it is AGAINST their principles. Darn.

    Well, hold it ... why isn't this against the principles of the Obama team??!

  • It is not censorship unless they don't allow them to say something, FOX news can say anything they want. The white house is just not going to give them information so the can skew it to meet their bias. Fox is not News it is manufactured on political motivation and rarely reports anything that is considered news.

    Wow, I didn't realize that one could be diagnosed as insane just by the fact that they watch Fox news and don't understand why the WH can't take criticism or just ignore what they consider lies.
