An official at a Democratic-leaning organization sends on a memo the group Media Matters is circulating today to progressive groups, calling Fox “a lethal 24/7 partisan political operation” and rallying a coalition of groups to join the White House assault on the network.

“The danger to progressive causes and the institution of journalism has become too significant to ignore,” says the introduction to a memo by Media Matters founder David Brock. “At Media Matters, we believe it is of paramount importance that progressive leaders have the information necessary to understand exactly what Fox News has become. We hope this brief memorandum will assist you in reaching your own decision on how best to engage this threat.”


Numerous sources are reporting a meeting occurred Wednesday between high-ranking officials at the White House and the Fox News Channel to try and reach an end to hostilities between the Administration and the nation’s leading cable news network.

Well, President Obama did say that he wasn’t interested in victory so it’s OK.

Don’t be so sure that Fox will come out of this intact. Look for some concessions. Murdoch, is after all, a pragmatic lefty who supported Hillary and whose main concern is increasing his wealth and influence.

Fox is not 1/10th as opposed to this administration as the New York Times has been to every single Republican administration for decades, and they’re not even as influential.

FOX probably won’t much change, ‘cause the Dems are fixin’ to get thumped in the ‘10 elections, which will strengthen FOX’s hand.

The White House War on Dissent continues, just on other fronts.

Attorney General Holder pressures a public interest group to withdraw an advertisement in support of school vouchers in Washington, D.C..

Why does the Obama Administration think they can get away with this kind of thing? Just look at where they came from: C®ook County prosecutors want grades, records, and syllabus for a class investigating capital court cases. I can’t say that such a thing surprises me at all.

Let’s not forget the Gibbs seal of approval required for reporting on stories.
