Obama’s administration is bashing Fox News – they say Fox News has a ‘viewpoint’ and is not a news organization.
Fox News does indeed have a viewpoint. They are pro-American, rather than pro-Obama. Obama’s administration doesn’t like that.
Personally, I don’t watch the Obama news channels, because of the rampant bias they displayed during the election. The coverage they gave of the Tea Parties was also over-the-top obviously biased. Since when is making lewd jokes (as was directed at the Tea Party participants) part of news reporting? It was absolutely ridiculous how biased they were (and still are).
When I realized I wasn’t getting reliable information at those news sources, I took my business elsewhere. To Fox News. I don’t think anybody at Fox ever got a ‘thrill up his leg’ from listening to Obama speak. And I know I didn’t.
This entire subject is much more critical than it first appears. If you watch carefully, you can see the signs in this administration that they would really like to control the news media and even entertainment programming. This concerns me greatly, because control of information is how you control the population. References: 1, 2, 3, 4.

It now seems likely that the reason the White House is attacking Fox News is as a strategy to discourage other news outlets from covering stories that Fox discovers. Think of the Acorn stories, and the radicalism of many of the Czars, like Van Jones, for instance, which stories were almost exclusively carried by Fox.
If the Obama Administration pulls this off, then the only place unbiased stories based on real reporting will be available will be Fox News.
This should kick Fox’s ratings even higher. Cool.
