And The Beat Goes On

So said Sonny and Cher way back in their 1967 song. Doubtless it did not refer to the ongoing battle, skirmish, tete-a-tete between the Obama Administration and those dastardly villains at Fox News. You know, the channel the administration loves to hate, doesn’t want to visit and probably wishes would just go away. Funny how Nixonian all this sounds. At least they are out in the open about their enemies list. Gotta get style points for that.

I made the mistake of watching part of a CNN roundtable program yesterday. The only panel members I knew were Bill Bennet and Donna Brazile. Bennett was his usual calm, reasoned self. Now, Ms Brazile, while outwardly calm, relied on words such as lies and smears etc when describing Fox’s “news coverage”.

Brief timeout, just  2 weeks ago, White House  guru David Axelrod and Fox news boss Roger Ailes met in New York for a chat. Talked about the weather no doubt. Shortly after that, Anita Dunn went on offense. Rather confusing is it not?

But then yesterday, Axelrod reversed his field and described Fox as  not really a news organization and  that further, their programming was “geared to make money.” Now that is a shocker. Who knows, maybe he and Ailes did just talk about the weather.

Gotta know that this jousting will continue.

  2. Obama is showing his Chicago days using his White House Chicago style gang to attack Fox New for their freedom of speech and facts reporting! Obama can not stand for anyone to go against his socialist policies or to disagree with him on any of the issues period! He’s a cry baby! This is another war Obama will lose! Good post by the way!

  3. You do realize that you can end most sentences with just a period, right, GTP? Not every sentence deserves an ! and most of yours certainly don’t — unless, of couse, you manage to spell all the words correctly… or at least most of them.
