For little more than a year I have been in a wonderful relationship…with FOX News.
Other’s seem to agree as FOX news makes a killing every night in the ratings. Yes, I love Bill-O, Sean, Shep, Greta, Glenn, Megyn, Charles Krauthhammer, Tammy Bruce, and even Juan. Am I fair and balanced in my choice of news sources? Hell no! Frankly, I do not care.
To be fair, my mind was already made up against Obama. He could not have given me 1 million dollars for my vote. All that I needed to see of him and his lack of presidential qualities I admired had been locked in since his bid for the Democratic nomination against Hillary Clinton.
However, it seemed clear to me that the good folks of CNN and MSNBC also were firm in their decision about the upcoming election. Campbell Brown -all bull…so biased. Keith Olberman (blech). It was all about Barry. Barry could do no wrong. GOP VP-nominee Sarah Palin was an idiot. John McCain was a racist and so were his gun toting supporters.
Distanced logic and a commitment to telling the truth seemed to be the last thing on the minds of reporters getting tingles up their legs over THE CHOSEN ONE. That is when I chose FOX.
At first, I delighted in the absence of Obama worship. That is what brought me to FOX. With time, it was the network’s no frills commentators, tenacity for getting at the heart of the matter and commitment to balanced reporting that kept me with Fox. I also appreciate the feminine aspect of the network. Beauty and brains rule, every woman with a law degree, sweet smile and the bite of a pit bull.
Remember this little tiff between Megyn Kelly and Obama Campaign guy Bill Burton?
Okay, so FOX News and Obama seem to have a bit of history. However, now that the 2008 presidential campaign is in the history books and Obama is our president, some feuds never die.

White House: Fox Pushed Team Obama Over the Brink
A senior Obama adviser says White House staffers realized they’d never get a fair shake from FoxPosted October 23, 2009
The White House’s feud with Fox News has caused an irresistible buzz in Washington, but many are wondering precisely what prompted President Obama and his advisers to go ballistic against the network.
Here’s the answer: Team Obama was pushed over the brink by a growing list of what it considered outrageous anti-Obama conduct by Fox that showed no sign of stopping. Obama’s advisers say that they seethed while Fox commentators used their shows to encourage protests against Obama’s healthcare proposals last summer. Team Obama fumed as Fox personalities tried to pressure some controversial Obama advisers to resign.
say that Fox has continued to stir the pot against Obama in a regular pattern—raising a criticism, having Republican congressional leaders comment on it, and then using those comments to keep the criticism alive.
A break point came when Fox tried to create the impression that angry anti-Obama protesters at congressional town hall meetings last summer signaled that Obama’s healthcare proposals were dying, a story line that other news organization picked up. White House officials say this was untrue, that those proposals were not dying at all.
Another break point came when Fox commentator Chris Wallace called White House officials “crybabies.” A senior Obama adviser tells U.S. News that White House staffers developed “a growing realization” that the president would never get a fair shake from Fox.
White House insiders say that, at some point, White House officials will appear again on Fox, but they will do so expecting an antagonistic atmosphere, as if they were appearing on conservative talk radio. Asked what White House insiders hope to accomplish with the feud, the adviser says, “We are not spending much time here at the White House thinking about Fox” but are focusing instead on the president’s agenda, including health care legislation, the economy, regulatory reform,
, and Iran. “Fox is using this to promote themselves,” the adviser says. “Our hope is simply that responsible journalists will not go chasing after Fox stories” as if these stories were legitimate.
Hmmm, if the Obama administration is so “not worried about FOX news can someone explain why they are trying so hard to lock out the news station that they claim is “not a legitimate news source”?
Again the Obamabots seek to crush and destroy rather than lead by example thus giving the world precious pearls of beer sud wisdom and “teachable moments”
Desperate to stay in the game weasel Democrats who normally shy away from FOX have been cropping up on the network. This morning Florida congress woman Deb Wasserman Schultz popped up on the morning show –cheery and full of liberal bias as always.
Sunday Lanny Davis got his ass handed to him on a platter by Mike Huckabee.
I do not agree with everything Mike Huckabee stands for but I love the way he handles himself with liberals.
I love it. Mike was honest. Yes we are fair and balanced but that does not mean we drink the Kool Aid and it certainly does not mean we hide what we believe in.
