Wallace: White House is Biggest Bunch of Cry Babies I've Dealt with in 30 Years

From : The White House escalated its offensive against Fox News on Sunday by urging other news organizations to stop "following Fox" and instead join the administration's attempt to marginalize the channel.
The White House stopped providing guests to 'Fox News Sunday' after Wallace fact-checked controversial assertions made by Tammy Duckworth, assistant secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, in August. Dunn said fact-checking an administration official was "something I've never seen a Sunday show do."

From Malott's Blog : The reality is that liberal ideas cannot stand up against conservative ideas in a debate. Liberal ideas can only be sold in an unchallenged speech from a lecturn. If Obama's boys and girls could be successful against the probing questions of REAL reporters, they would be on FOX every day.

I watched Wallace on TV yesterday. It seemed fascinating that when former president Bush was in office, his administration was fact-checked and criticized. Even former president Clinton's administration was subject to that.

So - why does the Obama administration seem surprised they are treated equally at least by one member of the news media?

It really DEMEANS an administration to have a fit and boycott a major news organization because someone disagrees.

Obama has been all over the media using his golden oratory to persuade the American people...
It hasn't worked.

The Administration must believe that this demonizing of FOX News is their best plan... Probably because they don't have the answers to difficult questions.
