White House Loses Bid to Exclude Fox News From Pay Czar Interview


Thanks to my friend LLS on FB for the link. Major kudos to the other news organizations for sticking together on this. What a great show of solidarity and a huge blow to the sissified Obama Administration. They all called his bluff and he caved. They’re eyes are being opened to his Chicago-style tactics and they realize that when Obama comes after them, they will get the same support. I don’t believe for a minute ole Barry is not losing sleep over all of this. Michelle is probably yapping about it all night long about it. Ha!

The Obama administration on Thursday tried to make “pay czar” Kenneth Feinberg available for interviews to every member of the White House pool except Fox News.

The Obama administration on Thursday tried to make “pay czar” Kenneth Feinberg available for interviews to every member of the White House pool except Fox News. The pool is the five-network rotation that for decades has shared the costs and duties of daily coverage of the presidency. 

But the Washington bureau chiefs of the five TV networks consulted and decided that none of their reporters would interview Feinberg unless Fox News was included. 

The administration relented, making Feinberg available for all five pool members and Bloomberg TV. 

The pushback came after White House senior adviser David Axelrod told ABC News’ “This Week” on Sunday that Fox News is not a real news organization and other news networks “ought not to treat them that way.”
