I don't understand how anyone can defend Fox News.
All the White House is saying is that they aren't a NEWS organization. If they just stopped touting themselves as a news provider, there would be no problem. But of course, since they are the lowest of the low, and their leaders are the scumbaggiest of the scumbags, they won't.
Maybe they will actually try to be a little more fair and balanced now that they have been outed as a bunch of smear-mongering douche bags (finally!) by someone who people will listen to. Yeah, fat chance.
"critics of Fox News claim at least one victory. After teasing coverage of Oct. 17 Tea Party protests, Fox didn’t cover the events on TV, instead relegating coverage to its website. For a network that had expansive coverage of the Tea Party Express leading up to the 9/12 protests in Washington and had commentator Sean Hannity headline a Tea Party in Atlanta this summer, that “says something,” says Jess Levin, a spokeswoman for Media Matters for America, a liberal media watchdog group."
