Fox is playing the victim when President Obama skipped the network in a round of recent interviews after the network previously dismissing the President’s other speeches.
You have people on FNC falsely claim that the White House does not call on them at press conferences, get caught manipulating video of a previous speech, spread falsehoods about so-called “Czars,” acuse Obama of “indoctrinating students,” call Obama a “racist” and “dangerous,” promote tea parties, decide to not show his press conference on network TV, etc. etc. etc. and now they’re whining about being not being included with the other networks.
“We figured Fox would rather show So You Think You Can Dance than broadcast an honest discussion about health insurance reform,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told ABC News. Earnest was referring to the TV show FOX TV broadcast September 9 instead of the president’s speech.
“Fox is an ideological outlet where the president has been interviewed before and will likely be interviewed again,” Earnest told ABC. “Not that the whining particularly strengthens their case for participation any time soon.”
