White House Tries To Exclude Fox News From White House Press Pool

The Obama White House’s war against Fox News Channel is getting more irrational and dangerous:

So this administration had what passes for a brainstorm among that group: now that they’ve made it clear that they disapprove of one particular news network, why, there would be nothing stopping them from stepping up their attempts to marginalize said network. So the White House announced today that a specific White House Press Pool access – Ken Feinberg, who is one of the myriad ‘czars’ so beloved of this administration – would explicitly exclude Fox News.  Despite the fact that the Press Pool is supported in part by Fox News.

And the media refused to play along.

Essentially, the rest of the White House Correspondent’s Association told the White House that the press pool availability would include all five networks, including Fox, or it would include none of them. Good for them for standing up to what is clearly becoming a display of arrogance unseen in the White House since the Nixon Administration.

So far, though, only one television network has picked up the story.

Yea, you guessed it, it’s Fox:

This is getting pathetic. It needs to stop.
