The Sunday morning talk shows just brought us White House Senior Adviser David Axelrod opining to George Stephanopoulos, on ABC’s “This Week,” that Fox is “Really – not news — it’s pushing a point of view.” Axelrod advised that ABC and other non-Fox outlets take his cue and expunge Fox from the brethren of news services: “And the bigger thing is that other news organizations like yours ought not to treat them that way, and we’re not going to treat them that way.” Meanwhile, on CNN’s “State of the Union,” White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel was hammering home the same message, that Fox “is not a news organization so much as it has a perspective,” and urging “More importantly is not have [sic] the CNNs and the others in the world basically be led in following Fox, as if what they’re trying to do is a legitimate news organization… .”This is the kind of thing I expect from Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Papa Doc/Baby Doc Duvalier, NOT from a President of the United States. When Richard Nixon, in 1973 started his "enemies list" the press rightfully crucified him. Now that Mr. Obama has started his...only the NYTimes has spoken out. I hope the rest of the press grows some ba*** and protests this unconstitutional attempt to muzzle critics of this administration.

The United States has now begun to decline with the Mr. Obama officially trying to eliminate the 1st Amendment. His actions mirror those of Hugo Chavez, the de facto dictator of Venezuela. His action in attempting to shut off FoxNews are those of a tin-pot Central American strong man. This past Sunday, Mr. Obama sent out his minions to reiterate Anita Dunn's declaration of war against FoxNews.
