White House Cites Opinion Shows as Basis for Fox News Complaints

Well, it appears that it is the “opinion” of Mr. Obama and his administration that the two “opinion” shows on Fox at “5:00 pm & 9:00 pm” are not favorable to the president…in their “opinion.” Well, it is my “opinion” that the white house is now the whiner house. I thought you had to have thick skin to be the leader of the free world. It is my “opinion” that the members of this administration should take off the diapers and focus on the real issues. That’s my “opinion”

O cry

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs refers to “Beck” and “Hannity” as the reasons why the Obama administration is criticizing Fox News.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on Tuesday pointed to two top-rated opinion shows on Fox News as the reason why the Obama administration has castigated the network as an illegitimate news organization. 

Gibbs weighed in on the controversy after several top White House advisers have gone on other channels to criticize Fox News’ coverage of the administration, dismiss the network as the mouthpiece of the Republican Party and urge other news organizations not to treat Fox News as a legitimate news station. 

Gibbs said White House officials “render (that) opinion based on some their coverage and the fairness of that coverage.” 

But asked how Fox News was different from other news organizations, Gibbs mentioned the channel’s 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. shows, in an explicit reference to “Beck” and “Hannity” — even though those two shows represent opinion programming. 

Informed that those hours are for opinion programming, Gibbs said: “That is our opinion.”
