ABC comes to the Defense of FOX?

President Obama and his minions have been attacking FOX news as not being a true news organization. Interestingly enough, Jake Tapper of ABC News got in to a heated debate with Robert Gibbs, calling the administration out for their actions in this.

  1. Yes, interesting isn't it? What's more important is if a few years ago, Dick Cheney had declared MSNBC was persona non grata and not a news organization, the press machines at the New York Times would have melted from all the heat they would have generated. Where’s the outrage from them and all the “real” news organizations? Jake Tapper must have realized that he, and ABC, would only remain viable with the Obama administration as long as they didn’t disagree with them. To paraphrase Pastor Martin Niemöller, “When they came for Fox News, I said nothing cause I didn’t work for Fox news… when they came for me there was no one left to speak up for me.”

  2. Brit Hume said it best when he comments, "One must wonder how the other media outlets feel being patted on the head and told they are a good news organization."

  3. The New York Times wrote a defense of Fox News after the incident with the pool camera and the President's staff not allowing Fox to interview a member of the President's staff.

    It was interesting that the NY Times wrote the article, and it seemed a decent defense. I couldn't help but feel that between the lines, the Times felt dirty defending Fox News.
