VIDEO: Jay Leno makes fun of WH war of words with Fox News

Posted by: ST on October 21, 2009 at 7:25 pm

Good to see some of the primetime/late night talk show hosts finally getting around to making jokes about our celebrity President:

For more laughs on this issue (what, you didn’t think there was any humor to be found here? :) ), check out Tom Maguire’s humorous post comparing the WH’s war against Fox News to wars past and present. Liberal pundits are crawling out of the woodwork (more here) to suggest that O and Co. have gotten themselves into a bit of a “quagmire” in this so-called “war” with a mainstream media news outlet, but as Maguire points out as only he can, it is interesting and unsurprising at the same time to know that just like it was during the Bush years, Democrats view Republicans as the bigger enemy than AQ.

Last but not least: Last night, I wrote about Bret Baier’s report on Fox News about how, in spite of the WH’s implied dislike of “biased” news outlets, MSDNC’s Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann were at an “off the record briefing” with President Obama on Monday night. MediaBistro reports today on other “journalists” who were in attendance:

Sources tell us other attendees at the two-and-a-half hour chat included Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post, Maureen Dowd of the New York Times, Gwen Ifill of PBS and Gloria Borger of CNN. Perhaps not surprisingly, no one from Fox News was in the room.

Of course, it goes without saying that none of the above invited “guests” are mainstream media journalists but instead are liberally biased columnists and pundits who work for mainstream media news outlets.

Just like Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Bill O work for a mainstream news media outlet.

    1. See the People’s Cube thread on this:

      So, exactly who is surprised by the way this administration is collecting an enemies list?

      Recall – their first clumsy attempt was the Email address where people could report anyone they found on the web who wasn’t sufficiently subservient to Dear Leader. That effort didn’t survive a torrent of negative publicity. But you know leftists – they never quit trying to achieve absolute power over everything. This is just another scheme to reach the same goal.

      I’ve never seen a lib yet who wanted to be in a “war” of any kind, so when the Duh-1 admin framed this as a “war” it was their undoing.

      Musta been Jae the Gofer’s idea. Or the affirmative action poster child’s.

    4. I think this war by the WH is the best thing that could have ever happened to Fox News!

      Think of the publicity!

      Fox is getting so many new viewers who do not watch them just because they want to see what all the hub bub is all about!

      How awesome is that!

      So, to those in the WH propaganda room, keep it up and keep ripping on Fox News!

      We’ll take any of those open minds from you anytime!


    5. Neo says:

      The ability for the White House to achieve any success in the “War with FoxNews” is roughly equivalent to the “War on Team America” that North Korean leader Kim Jong Il attempted after it’s creators made him look like a fool in the movie, “Team America: World Police“.

      It was said that Kim Jong Il had ordered that the writers, Trey Parker and Matt Stone (still alive), be assassinated, a step that I don’t think Obama is ready to take, but of course like Nancy Pelosi said, the war of words could inspire terrible violence which could reflect badly on the President.

    6. HatlessHessian says:

      As the saying goes, Nixon anti-American, domestic-spying, enemies-list maintaining, corrupt, criminal and crooked administration was a tragedy. Obama’s is a farce.

      Todays’ Hot Rumor from deep inside the WH Bunker…they are preparing to release the HILLARY!

      Loved the link AbecedariusRex….may I call you AbeRex?

      I heard someone say that you couldn’t call CBS, NBC, ABC networks news organizations either…hey you turn them on at 9 pm and see some dopey TV shows!

      No one watches the nightly news shows… they are extremely jealous of FOX News. And if you have watched them, which I do, they waste an awful lot of airtime on stupid issues, not news. Of course, they can throw in that little human interest story, but have you noticed the itsy-bisty bias stream that goes along with them? Oh, no, they don’t have a bias…..hehehehe.

      So turn green with envy or turn to the truth and report news and do real investigative reporting. Of course the easy way is to have your fearless leader pronounce an edict by which all must live.

      Before I had Direct TV, I would practice “going greeen” when the Nightly News came on. :o) I would shut off my TV for half an hour. =))

      Look this didn’t work with Rush, it didn’t work at Flag@Whitehouse.Dumbass and it isn’t going to work against Fox News. Rush owes the President a huge thank you for increasing his audience some 5 million listeners. =)) Fox news is beating out all the other cable networks, and why is that? It couldn’t be that they are afraid of airing both sides of any issue, unlike the evening news. Those guys have been pushing their leftist agenda for 40 years or more, and people are tired of it…and look at the viewership drop. Katie Couric had more viewers on the Today show than she does on the nightly news. =))

      For all of you who believe that the War in Afghanistan is the longest war America has ever been in, you’re wrong. The war on poverty has been our longest war, and has been more costly than all the other wars combined. If the lefties know more about everything, then why is it we still have poverty?? This should have been erased 20 years ago. This is what is going to happen with Gov. run Health Care. It will start smallish, and balloon into this huge outrageous thing, and before anyone can stop it, it will be out of control. I am to the point where I can’t listen to these guy’s ideas anymore. It’s all about gathering more tax money to waste on stupid things….and quite frankly like many Americans I am tired of it.

      I have to wonder, if Barack had been honest with the American people, would he been elected. I don’t really think so these days. Especially since his popularity is now in the 40s. WOW big drop that for 10 months of doing nothing in all actuallity. – Lorica

      Obama and the Comrads are really making fools of themselves on a massive scale with their pettiness. I knew eventually their true nature would come out for all the world to see but I never imagined they would do it so quickly and with such amateurish abandon. Their childish attempt to ban FOX news from the WH is embarrassing me as an American.

      Rupert Murdoch must be laughing all the way to the bank by now…and it didn’t cost him a penny in advertising. The propaganda outlets (CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS) have got to be feeling the pain financially as more and more of what’s left of their viewers abandon them for FOX even faster than before.

      If I was a Democratic Party strategist I would be telling Obama to drop this silly anti-FOX crusade and fire Robert Gibbs, who has turned this farcical situation into a public relations nightmare due to his incompetence, as quickly as possible, .

      If I was a Republican Party strategist, I would be telling Obama to keep up the good work!
