As you may have heard, FOX News has been attacked by the White House.
“For the second week in a row, White House advisors were trash-talking Fox News on the Sunday news shows yesterday. Fox is ‘not really a news station,’ said David Axelrod. Fox, said Rahm Emmanuel, “is is not a news organization so much as it has a perspective.'” Eric Etheridge Opinion Article with the New York Times. October 19th, 2009
And while the White House has been “trashing” FOX News, LA Times reports that since then the news channel’s audience has risen 8%. Interesting, no? Yes, and it’s probably because the more the White House mentions them, the more publicity they get.
And remember the fake press meeting with the Chamber of Commerce I posted about earlier? Fox News fact checked it and never reported it. One reason that Fox News has many, many more viewers than other news networks.

American Thinker says that objective reporting “already seems to be an endangered species.” Is the White House scared of factual news? Do they have something to hide? Or are they just having a bad case of Napoleonic FOXaphobia?
“Napoleon feared the media because he did not control it, because he knew that “ten people who speak make more noise than ten thousand who are silent.” And those ten often set off those ten thousand to get off their butts and take action.” American Thinker, October 29th, 2009
The White House is scared of the truth.
