    Calling Fox News "a wing of the Republican Party," the Obama administration on Sunday escalated its war of words against the channel, even as observers questioned the wisdom of a White House war on a news organization.

    "What I think is fair to say about Fox -- and certainly it's the way we view it -- is that it really is more a wing of the Republican Party," said Anita Dunn, White House communications director, on CNN. "They take their talking points, put them on the air; take their opposition research, put them on the air. And that's fine. But let's not pretend they're a news network the way CNN is."

    and of course if FOX were liberal like CNN then they'd be considered a news network like CNN. Does he really want to play these kiddie games like this.

    We have to understand that this man of piece is very very sensitive.

    OO, what then does that make MSNBC?


    Chris Matthews (who, in the past, has both cried over an Obama speech and compared him to Jesus) as quoted on the Huffington Post.

    "What I think is fair to say about Fox -- and certainly it's the way we view it -- is that it really doesn't lick the boots of the President. They need to be more like the boot lickers at CNN."

    Presidents, and their staff, should never engage in this kind of silly political game. Of course FOX is conservative, just like MSNBC is off the left side of the mountain. Obama is doing nothing but throwing red meat to his liberal base. That would be fine during a campaign, but it is not fine when one is in the White House.
