Note, once again, that the concept of whether it's OK to refuse interviews with "unfair" press has not been addressed.

But just think, Terry, how much more paper you'd have had to crack them crabs on if Bobby hadn't been a "chicken" like Obama. :lol:

He sure killed this issue for ya, though.

Oh crap! Here we go again. Time to renew the blood pressure medicine. :mad:

Ok mister hot shot, parse words for a living, maritime attorney, show us where in this thread I said that it wasn't ok for Obama to refuse to appear on Fox. In one post I said that is was relevent to point out he refuses to appear on the most watched cable news show but never said he should. It's still a relatively free country. As usual, OVER RULED!

Oh and I see no mention of your commitment to stay out of the political threads either???

I didn't say you said he must appear; I was citing to your clipped response to the post above which posited just how absurd such an interview of the hypothetical coal-advocate might be, and thus the reason for refusing it.

So you agree that President Obama is right not to grant an interview to Fox if he believes that a network owned by Rupert and run by Roger Ailes will be, as my old friend Bobby Ehrlich believed in his situation, "unfair" to him?

Oh, and so I won't be accused of partially responding, I plan to continue to help you avoid dangerously low blood pressure when you come out of the cave you live in on political threads. Call it a broken promise if you like, but it's the principle of the thing. 8-)

Frankly I don't give a rat's ass if you post in the political threads or not. Funny though that you chose the wording "it's the principal of the thing. " To me "principle" would mean making a commitment and sticking to it. But that would be too much to ask of a lib let alone a lib attorney.

And yes I agree Obama has the right to refuse to give an interview to anyone he choses. Besides there's only one interview I want to see him give....his exit interview. 8-)

Because a Republican Governor has already won an appeal for taking a position identical to the President's.

:oops2:



This is your justification for Obama failing to speak to the entire consituency? Republicans did it first?

It makes any politician look weak and weasely (or perhaps callous and apathetic) if they won't answer the difficult questions. This is a fairly new tactic for Democrats. Republicans haven't been able to dodge the hardballs from the formerly mainstream press for decades.

Maintain the pressure FoxNews. Show Obama for what he is.

Yeah, a student of GOP media management. :rimshot:

At least he's not pre-screening the crowds at his events yet. :whistle:

Aside, for those on the other side of the isle, if you are a fan of Don Imus you should maintain consistency of your convictions and boycott his show as he has moved to the Fox Business Broadcast arm of the Right Wing smear merchants that you disdain.

Boycott his sponsors too.

Wow, these clips of the Glenn Beck show and constant repeating that Fox is the most popular cable news network have completely changed my mind. You're right, they are fair and balanced. The rest of the country must have a liberal slant. Damn, what's that say about the rest of the world, who thinks ALL of our media has a conservative slant?

Look, what's so wrong with saying "I'm a conservative. I prefer to get my news presented in a conservative framework." There's no shame in that; Whereas bitterly claiming that Fox is balanced and everyone else is liberal, well, just makes you look ridiculous.

Well then, using the logic of Mr. Axelrod, I would have to say that the "majors" stopped being news organizations about two or three decades ago.

I am told by a journalism major in my employ that the current style of news/opinion broadcasting by the majors is the preferred style in Europe. Why does that not surprise me?

Even with Fox demonstrating a right of center news slant, the left cannot see the radical left of center slant that has pervaded the news for a decade or two. They cannot even understand the slightly left of center slant by the majors in the decades prior to that (with no counterbalance, I might add).

It merely reinforces that the quiet left is entirely obtuse and why the vocal left is so rabid. Their monopoly on propaganda has ended.

Thank you Fox News.
