Fox News Cut Out From Questions At Obama's First Press Conference

Fox News Cut Out From Questions At Obama's First Press Conference

Commented Nov 8, 2008 at 21:20:25 in Media

“The 1st Amendment is overrated and outdated.”

jdmba on Nov 8, 2008 at 21:57:09

“No, it would violate the First Amendment if the president took them off the air for being disloyal.

He is very well within his power as a private person and a public president to not extend invitations to a propoganda machine. The Bush White House actually sent out TALKING POINTS! It would not brief reporters who were considered to be "hostile". The President Elect did nothing of the sort.”

echojulia on Nov 8, 2008 at 21:47:05

“The First Amendment protects citizens and the media from government censorship. It does not protect idiots who lie routinely and try to pass it off as journalism from being ignored. If Fox News wants to be credible, then they should act credibly. Or at least drop the "Fair and Balanced" portion of their advertising. They're neither fair nor balanced.

Or perhaps more simply, Fox News has the right to report whatever they want. But they have to deal with the consequences of their speech, just like the rest of us.”

shockmagog on Nov 8, 2008 at 21:42:45

“Show us where the 1st Amendment includes a provision for l.y.i.n.g.

You have a right to your own opinion but not to your own set of facts.”

“yeah, I mean hearing another's point of view is intolerable. And should be illegal.”

UWNBM on Nov 8, 2008 at 21:57:26

“That's what will be the line in Obama's America...

Whether you censor on the right or the left opinion you don't wish to here, it is wrong....

No one has to treat Obama with kid gloves...that is not the media's responsibility...

YOU all can...and make yourselves out to be sad shills...but the press doesn't have to.”

“It's not the hearing of others' POV that's the problem. It's the publication of lies that should be intolerable and illegal.”

“"another point of view" is fine and good. smears, lies, and innuendo are another thing entirely. Fox News claims to provide the former, but really specializes in the latter.”

“Oh for bloody crying out loud.
It's in the records in Hawai'i, where he was born, and where REPUBLICAN governor Linda Lingle just officially confirmed the authenticity of the birth certificate, on 10/31. She also indicated that Hawai'i birth records are private and do not get accessed just because some malcontent wants to make an issue of it. Mahalo nui loa, Linda.
And for good measure, the court case in Ohio was thrown out on the same day.

Now take this actual factual information back to your right-wing blogs and report that the manufactured campaign tanked.”

The republican Governor of Hawaii would access to state vital records. After multiple inquiries, she most certainly looked to confirm of his citizenry. If he wasn't she, McCain and Bush would have been outspoken about this, which they haven't been because he's a natural born US citizen.

In a way, I am hoping he wins, because then we can all band together and finally scrutinize this guy the way the media should have been doing all these months.
