President Obama's Communications director has it in for Fox News. The WH is has unleashed its full staff, against Fox News.. It seems they have declared war! Maybe they don't like having one cable network, whose not getting a thrill up their leg for Obama..and they just don't know how to handle it? Maybe they haven't yet made a decision on what to do about Afghanistan, and Fox seems to be an easier target to wage war with? I still cant figure out their strategy..or maybe we have yet to see the sum of all their parts?
I saw their first attempt at making foolish their opposition party, when they chose Rush Limbaugh as Executor of the leaderless right. Fun move on Obama's part, to make foolish the lack of leadership in the Republican Party. So once they did that, I guess they just couldn't stop?
After all, who among the Media elite, was without a brown nose? Ah, Fox! And who amoung them didnt show media bias, in his favor? Ah it was the Fox
Maybe Ms Dunn's statement regarding how they controlled the Media, during the campaign wasn't clear enough. She said that they were in control of telling the media what they wanted them to know. Instead of giving interviews, they sent out press releases..telling the media what they wanted them to voice.....Gee, us old folks used to call that Propaganda.. Now its called a savvy Administration....how far we have come.
I can only suppose the WH is taking their cues from Mr. Hugo Chavez. I believe there is only one TV station, not under his control...But hey taking away freedom of speech takes time.. After all, you don't want to look like a dictator, right off the bat? When you can cloak it in something more altruistic...like those who arent with me, are against me....oh wait, wasnt that the previous admin's line? I guess its ok to use, as long as you are a Democrat and not a Bush.
Rohm Emmanuel has now asked the "prettier" more in your favor news outlets, not to follow Fox's lead. Like when they broke the news on Acorn, or Van Jones being a Communist and the like...How dare they report something that can hurt our Beloved Leader? They are nothing more then researchers, and arms of the right, Ms Dunn suggests. Funny, in my time they were called investigative reporters. Those folks who questioned truth to power, something that seems to have died in its tracks, after Bush left the WH.
Our President seems to not be as trusting as we once believed him to be. Just cant figure why? He has 99% of the Media on his side? So why is he now trying to lump Fox in with greedy Doctors who perform operations just to pad their bills? Why is he now saying Fox News Media, is only in it for the money? Good thinking Mr President...tie greed on Wall St, with greedy Doctors, and throw in the only Media Outlet who doesnt seem to recognize you as King.
Gee , I thought your political platform was already covered by ABC, CBS, CNN, the Ed Show, Rachel Maddow, and Keith Obenfurrer? Excuse me, Oberman...I guess being a freedom of speech pac-men is just the begining, in your taking over the world.
I digress... lets get back to our illustrious Communications Director Ms Dunn..who Imsure will be leaving office, as soon as the pressure mounts. Well then again maybe she wont? Maybe thats the reason the Admin, told the other Networks not to follow Fox's lead. Maybe this way fewer people will be informed, about those who were chosen to work in the WH. Maybe this way no pressure will be brought to bare? Well lets see?
Ms Dunn gave a speech, to St Andrew HS students. There she told her audience, the two people she calls upon, as her best examples of political philosophers, were Chairman Mao, and Mother Teresa. Her point was to inspire "individualism" to these young HS students. Chairman Mao, a champion of individualism? I would ask her, you mean in all the world, you call upon Chairman Mao, as your example? Couldnt you have found a better political philosopher to pair with Mother T . than that?
I have to say, if these are the two folks you call on, as examples, I have to question your sanity? One is a saint, the other a murdering dictator, who had a special liking for young children.... Gee, I know you are the Presidents choice for Communications Director, but he certainly wouldnt have been my first choice, nor my best example..but then again, Im not the Presidents Communications Director. Guess your political insight is far superior to mine?
For a President who has been said is a "wordsmith", where every word he uses is considered....what the heck was he thinking? What exactly were Ms. Dunn's qualifications for the job? When she obviously hadnt thought through, what she was saying. She chose a dictator who killed millions as her best example of "freedom" of the individual to walk their own path? Holy Cow, if this is the non thinking behind this WH...we are all doomed!
I have to ask the question why? Why would our President want to have someone who thinks Mao, is the best thing since sliced bread as his best choice for Communications Director? And when she was called on, regarding these remarks, said she was only kidding? She said she was quoting someone on the right. Then, when that didn't fly, she said she was only kidding. Was she kidding about Mother Teresa, as well? Was her speech to those young HS students completely staged and insincere? Or has she now been faced with her own words, for the first time? Our new Communications Director???
The more I see behind the curtains of this Presidents Administration, the more it makes me worry for our America. The caliber of people he has chosen, in my mind has sunk to a new low. The more I see the people our President has chosen, as his representatives, the more immature he seems to be.
If she was the only example of our Presidents bad choices, that could be forgiven, however, for those who are looking, she is not alone. The Admin, is begining to look amaturish, too far left for most of America, and people who are making decisions as they go along.. not a very good example of what we thought would be a brilliant political philosophy...especially when you are seen, to have none.
If these were Ms Dunn best examples, and she was my only concern, than it wouldn't be enough for me to be concerned.... But now couple that with Van Jones. her out and out lie, and the new assault on Fox, now have to ask myself, why?
Slowly they are attempting to smear, those who are questioning their truth. Slowly they are choosing to praise those in the Media who are not. Slowly they are attempting to punish those, who arent inbedded on their side.
Slowly those who are speaking out against what they that they dont like, are being demonized. Fox, is now being marginized as a non News Media. A network with a "perspective". What may I ask is the "perspective" of MSNBC? PLease dont get me wrong, we all know the 4th estate has their own bias... but since when, is it the WH's job, to try to limit a Networks business? By saying they arent really a place to go to for Americas News???? What happened to free enterprise, much less freedom of speech? Are they looking to tear down the only Network, not in the tank for them?
Couple this, with the attitude the Dems have been promoting against the folks who show up at Tea Party's. As well as those rowdy mobs at Town Halls. Add that to them telling other broadcast networks not to follow in the footsteps of Fox. Does anyone see somehthing wrong here? Is this the WH of transparency, when they seek to stiffle those who dont see things their way?
I now have to question his promise of hope. I now have to accept, he was never the uniter, we sought. In fact, I now see his Admin, promoting just the reverse. We were promised... no more blue or red states, but all one under the Red White and Blue....where did they put that flag? Suddenly Fox, greedy Doctors and those Wall St, are the bad guys, oh wait... they can be that, after he gets some money from Wall St at a fund raiser in NY today.
I am very concerned. Never before have I seen such a hungry need for control. I never before have seen a govenment that wants to change every aspect of our lives. And as they surplant what they see as the New America, we watch quietly as they put their hands into our banks, our auto makers, or air, soda, TV Media, and the Net...
Sorry, Ms Dunn, but I dont like your idea of Communication.. I dont want to be forced to watch those people you have given the " OK " too in the News.
I dont believe Chris (spits on himself) Matthews, is fair much less balanced, in what he says is true. Nor is Keith (Oberfurrer) Oberman! Nor Rachel Maddow... non of these folks are bringing anything to the folks, than a certain perspective...the only difference is that its YOUR PERSPECITVE! So I guess thats ok....
I truly dont know why you choose to make war those at Fox? All I can say about that is, what was once were the dying words of a great patriot.... Give me Brian, Gretchen and Steve.... or give me death!
