The Obama people aren't at war with Fox because it's conservative. They're angry because Fox has embarrassed them. Its correspondents ask hard questions. Its primetime hosts got Van Jones fired from the White House by exposing him as a 9/11 denier. If Keith Olbermann had done the same thing--and don't hold your breath--David Axelrod might be denouncing MSNBC this week. Politics is seldom as ideological as it seems.
Which is something the White House press corps ought to keep in mind as it stands by in silence while Fox is bullied: Your politics won't save you. You'll be next.
