Fox and the President

In a story on The Associated Press wire today, the beefing between the Obama  administration and Fox News over coverage of the White House appears to be working towards as a resolution.
However, the most interesting part of the article came near the bottom when referring to a CNN anchor's statement about a question offered to the White House.
If they accuse Fox News of being a right-wing or Republican press machine, then shouldn't the White House also question the journalistic values of the left-leaning MSNBC?
Good question.
If one is too far to one side, shouldn't their loyal opposition also be treated the same way, if what the White House truly wants is only to be treated somewhat fairly?
The White House spokesperson wavered and didn't answer directly.
Too bad.
If you can't complain about both, then you shouldn't complain about one, because one thing I've learned is that complainers always come out looking poorly.

MSNBC will be like Fox when MSNBC puts Keith Olbermann on as an afternoon anchor and Fox puts Phil Donahue on for three hours in the morning in the place of Fox and Friends.

If Fox doesn't want to be called a conservatively biased piece of tabloid garbage, then they should try not being a conservatively biased piece of tabloid garbage.

Hey, here's a question since you're so concerned with the media:

Why aren't you policing your own comment boards? The front page is filled with nothing but racist filth.

You can moderate the comments here, you should be moderating them on the front page as well.
