White House Whining: Fox News is a Wing of the Republican Party

No wonder Chris Wallace called them a bunch of cry babies.
"Fox News is simply "a wing of the Republican Party," a top White House aide said today. Appearing on CNN this morning, White House Communications Director Anita Dunn said Fox News exists simply to further the agenda of the GOP. "
Fox News often operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party," Dunn said. This is the second time in a week that Dunn has blasted Fox. She was quoted in Time Magazine on Thursday blasting the cable network as "opinion journalism masquerading as news."
Fox News Senior Vice President of News Michael Clemente said Fox News' growing viewership speaks for itself. "An increasing number of viewers are relying on FOX News for both news and opinion," said Clemente. He added that Fox has a clear barrier between hard news programming and opinion shows.
"The average news consumer can certainly distinguish between the A section of the newspaper and the editorial page, which is what our programming represents," he said. "So, with all due respect to anyone who still might be confused about the difference between news reporting and vibrant opinion, my suggestion would be to talk about the stories and the facts rather than attack the messenger…which over time, has never worked."
So I guess we play that game and call MSNBC, CNN and the rest of the liberal media a wing of the White House? Seems fair enough since they steadfastly refuse to do their job, much of which is responsible for putting Obama in office in the first place.

 The viewership point is key. Americans are tuning out the liberal cable shows and tuning into to Fox which means that the White House is out of tune with Americans.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
