The war of words escalated yesterday when Fox News answered the White House Communications director’s whine.
From Fox News:
Fox News senior vice president Michael Clemente, who likens the channel to a newspaper with separate sections on straight news and commentary, suggested White House officials were intentionally conflating opinion show hosts like Glenn Beck with news reporters like Major Garrett.
"It's astounding the White House cannot distinguish between news and opinion programming," Clemente said. "It seems self-serving on their part."
That was only the beginning. On every news program and every commentary show on Fox, they were slamming Ms. Dunn’s comments. Even Neil Cavuto gave Ms. Dunn the old what for.
I don’t know who is the genius in the administration who thought taking on Fox News was a good idea. Especially considering that when the administration went after Rush, his rating grew.
The White House taking on Fox News is particularly stupid when you consider the number of serious matters this administration has been neglecting. We have unemployment still climbing. We have a dollar that is looking like an ugly duckling to the rest of the world. Afghanistan is begging for immediate attention and Iran sprinting to the finish line on their nuke projects. All this and more, yet this administration feels it is important to get into a pissing contest with the highest rated cable news network. Stupid doesn’t even begin to describe it.
Just think, Glenn Beck a commentator with a limited research staff, was able take out two radical rascals from this administration. Can you imagine how many more Beck can get if the news side of Fox was to help him along?
Stay tuned and pass the popcorn, this won’t be pretty.
