President Obama held a Q & A session with the Republican members of Congress at the GOP House Issues Conference, during which he addressed many falsehoods related to health care, the budget, taxes, etc. All cable news networks covered the session, but Fox News was the only channel to cut it off with 20 minutes left. Apparently The Live Desk co-host Trace Gallagher thought Obama was “at times being a little bit combative” and that “there was a little bit of lecturing there.”
House Minority Leader Rep. John Boehner (R-OH), Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN), and Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) held a “Republican Response” press conference after the question and answer session with Obama. Not surprising, Fox News Channel covered the entire thing, including Karl Rove’s commentary prior to the press conference.
