Out Foxed

Well, I’m liking Barack Obama more every day. Yesterday, he called for the complete pull-out of troops from Iraq by early 2008 and now I see this:
Sources tell The Sleuth that the Obama camp has "frozen out" Fox News reporters and producers in the wake of the network's major screw-up in running with the erroneous Obama-the-jihadist story reported by Insight magazine.
Let’s be clear that this wasn’t just a “screw-up”, major or otherwise. If it had been, and not part of a long standing anti-Democrat smear campaign, I’d say Obama was being petty. Truth is, that’s the kind of stuff they do day-in and day-out. Their core audience loves it and won’t stand for anything less. Why would they when they could get real news (more or less) a million other places?

I’ve long wondered why any Democrat would give Fox News any of their time. Why legitimize them? They aren’t really a news organization, why pretend they are? And to their own detriment, no less.

Long overdue.

And if Obama wins?

Imagine Fox not being able to get access to the White House?


But I doubt it would be tolerated long.
