I am beside myself with fear for what I see is really happening right before my eyes and what our future may hold. Recently, Several White House officials have began attacking the FOX news channel for what it calls its “opinionated” coverage of the Obama administration. For anyone that has ever watched any news coverage of the Bush administration, they would realize how ridiculous this claim is. We know by the admission of Anita Dunn that the Obama administration seeks to control its coverage in the media. The fact that they cannot control FOX’s coverage is the only real issue here. Be intellectually honest with yourself, why are you not hearing about the open communists in the Obama administration on CNN,NBC,ABC,CBS, or MSNBC. Why did they not cover the ACORN scandal? Why have they gone soft on Afghanistan and unemployment? Why do they appear to be complicit with Obama policies.
But here is where the story gets scary, according to fox, the white house is now engaged in a campaign to lobby the other news agencies to exclude FOX from the White House pool covering Obama. Re-read that sentence and see if its implications sink in. A sitting President of The United States of America, where the freedom of the press is guaranteed, is engaging in a blackout of a news agency, whose only crime is to be critical of the President. If you look at the news like the UN, this is even scarier. The other news agencies represent the third world and FOX is the United States. More than anything they want to see the Big one fail, so of course they will go along with Obama. The penalty for these news agencies for failure to comply is to also become black-listed.
This is the stuff of fiction, but it is true. Usually we only see this kind of behavior out of dictators like Hugo Chavez, but this our President whose duty it is to uphold the constitution.
I think the difference to me between this story and any other story regarding our nations march to fascism is the magnitude of its reach. My heart has genuinely broke for our nation and the nation I will leave to my children. What will it take to stop this insanity.
The White House also appeared to stand by its effort to urge other networks to isolate and alienate the channel. Gibbs said Tuesday that it's up to the White House Correspondents Association to decide whether Fox News should continue to be part of the White House pool which covers President Obama.
"I'm not going to delineate for the White House Correspondents Association how the pool is conducted. That's not my job," he said.
