You’re not legit if you don’t LOOOOOVE The Anointed One!

So the White House has doubled down on its war against Fox News.

Appearing on ABC’s This Week today, WH senior adviser David Axelrod had this to say:

“A lot of their news programming, it’s really not news. It’s pushing a point of view.”

On CNN’s State of the Union, Rahm Emanuel said:

“The way we — the president looks at it and we look at it, is, it is not a news organization so much as it has a perspective.”

All of this follows the remarks that started it all, from WH Communications Director (and fan of Mao Tse-Tung) Anita Dunn:

“As they are undertaking a war against Barack Obama and the White House, we don’t need to pretend that this is the way that legitimate news organizations behave.”

OK, Fox News has a right-leaning bias. Is the White House going to pretend that CNN and MSNBC don’t have a left-leaning bias? Is Fox News less of a legitimate news organization than CBS or ABC, both of whom devote only a few hours per week to news programming?

Of course, all of this is quite beside the point. The real issue is that Fox News dares to question and criticize The Anointed One, and we all know how well (not!) he handles being less-than-adored!

This is just more of the same from the same folks who play the Race Card against every American who doesn’t agree with them.
