From Crush Liberalism comes:

Obama Tries To Bar FOX News From Interviewing Pay Czar... And Fails Embarrassingly So


Yes, the press pool, consisting of reporters from ABC, CBS, CNN, FOX, and NBC, told Obama that if FOX wasn't allowed to interview the Pay Czar, then none of them would interview him either.


Michelle Malkin @ Hot Air seems to think that it's more from self-preservation than from the larger principle of free speech, but I'll take the baby step in the right direction.

Now, MSM let's see some giant leaps...

Fox News couldn't PAY for the great publicity the White House is giving them.

FOX is certainly reaping the ratings rewards.

But I don't think the FOX brouhaha was meant entirely for FOX. I think it was a salvo across the bow to all media outlets to let them know what would happen to them if they strayed from the party line.

Perhaps they overreached with their ham-handed attempt to lock out FOX from the pay Czar interview.

Perhaps the MSM concluded that if they can come for FOX, they can come for them as well.

Who knows?

Like I said, it was a baby step in the right direction. I'll take it, but I want more.

Wonders never cease. Meanwhile, Fox News continues to eat all of their lunches.
