What mainstream media journalism is supposed to be all about (it’s about 2 and a half to 3 minutes into this clip):
Considering that grilling, it’s no wonder the WH has declared war on Fox. It’s not just their opinion show hosts questioning them, it’s their ace mainstream media journalists as well (gasp!).
I’m savoring this “truth in mainstream (liberal) media journalism” moment. I know it won’t last long. But in the event that it did, I wonder how long it would take before the Obama admin started targeting CBS, too? Ed Morrissey is on the same page:
The tone of this report on CBS, of all places, indicates that the credibility of this administration has finally begun to collapse. When the Tiffany Network goes on the air to say that a report from Barack Obama’s White House isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on and that the previous incompetence calls into question any numbers announced today, I’d say that the honeymoon may finally be over.
So when does CBS start getting the Fox treatment by Robert Gibbs and Valerie Jarrett? (via Instapundit)
Come to think of it, considering how the quickly admin punished other normally loyal and devoted MSM outlets after they stood in solidarity with Fox News last week when the admin tried to shut Fox out of the press pool, I’d say CBS better start planning it’s next Obama puff piece – stat.
Wonder what the big topic is going to be on 60 Minutes this week? Another fawning MSM segment on Michelle Obama?
