President Obama Is Getting Revenge On Fox News For Their Years Of Lies

After years of putting up with their attacks, President Obama is getting his revenge on Fox News by freezing them out of access and denying them exclusive interviews.

Video:

Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace went into full whine mode because the Obama White House refuses to send guests on to his show, “We wanted to ask Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson about the terror threat while the White House put him on another Sunday show. They declined to make him available to Fox viewers. The White House has made a number of guests available to other networks this year while excluding us and you. We did get to interview Chief of Staff Denis McDonough and DHS Secretary Johnson once this year, but only when they appeared on all five networks.”

Fox News nuked their bridges with the Obama administration a long time ago. Before the President first took office, Fox News was pushing racism and birtherism. Fox’s behavior has only gotten worse over the years. Fox News has openly tried to get this removed from office with their constant conspiracy theories and propagandizing.

President Obama’s White House would be rewarding bad behavior and inaccurate reporting if they allowed administration officials to appear exclusively on Fox News. The Obama administration is paying back Fox News for their years of biased and inaccurate reporting.

Fox doesn’t get to have it both ways. They can’t be baselessly accusing the President of illegal behavior on a regular basis and expect to be rewarded with exclusive interviews.

The problem with Fox News isn’t that they are critical of President Obama. The problem with Fox News is that they are deeply partisan, and ignore facts and reality. Fox News doesn’t practice journalism. They practice partisan warfare disguised as journalism. For this reason, they should not be surprised that the White House has no interest in sending officials to appear on their network.

Fox News needs access to White House officials. The White House does not need Fox News for anything.

      • Offering administration officials to be "interviewed" on Fox would only legitimate that crew of fascists. He should have done this years ago. There's no sense in feeding that squalid bunch anything.

        • Keep in mind, that the White House tried to stonewall Fox Noise early in his first term and mainstream media objected and came to the rescue of their journalist friends at Fox. They had more to gain by supporting Fox Noise brand of journalism than the White House's attempt to throttle down any form of journalism. Besides, you never know when a mainstream journalist would want to cross over to the "dark side" in order to make more money. Its happened.

    • He's smart to send representatives to more credible media outlets. I believe he's thinking about sending one to The Jerry Springer Show, but he's drawing the line at Fox "News". [WINK]

  • Considering that Fox "News" is the cable TV propaganda arm of the Fascist Republicans, my only surprise about this is that he waited so long to start doing it. If I were in the President's position, I'd have started that right after I got re-elected.
    Besides, Fox "News" likes to edit or intentionally misinterpret what the President and his Cabinet say and do, anyway. We need the truth and facts, not the Fascist propaganda of the GOP>

    • Yeah, well, it isn't like those pissants have been nice to him, so fair's fair.

      Besides, Faux isn't any kind of real news outlet anyway. Why should they get any access?

        I'll tell you why.

        First of all, the administration has been snubbing Fox for years....this isn't new.

        But when the DHS Secretary is appearing on other networks discussing the ever increasing threat of "lone wolf" terror attacks in the U.S., he should be doing the full Ginsburg and trying to reach as many people as possible to remind them they need to be vigilant at all times.
        The WH and Jeh Johnson should be MOST concerned with the safety of the People and helping to protect them from these potential threats. If the concern becomes "revenge" on Fox News, it shows the wrong priority.

        But the WH isn't the only one playing this game.

        Karma came quick.

        • Maybe they didn't want to be called out for their support of ISIS

          I wonder why that isn't the BIG STORY

        • All these states have been watching the Iranian negotiations closely and have been critical of the U.S. allowing Iranian influence in the region to rise. They aren't happy campers...
          which is more likely the reason.

          • O my stars and garters you have heard of this civil war between Sunnis and Shias? But then again being right wing and uneducated you probably scratch your ass and say but they all mooslims so what's the difference
            SMDH at the ignorance in this country

        • If your sole source of information is Fox entertainment, you don't have enough facts to make a plan of action. So 'greatest number' is irrelevant. The access is there, if you're too clueless to seek it out, get out of the gene pool and don't home school.
          Thank you.

        • To be a news station you first must be unbias in your reporting and Fox is not that. Second you must correct things and forcefully as you report incorrect things and third you must stop being a propaganda arm of any political party. You want to be informed watch anything other than Fox, you want to be entertained watch Fox. Me personally i want to be informed, entertainment i can get from watching WWE. Fox is no more a news station than i am the pope and guess what i love women and sex, so i aint the pope.

  • While this may be true, and I believe it is, this article needs a good editor. It's repetitive and redundant from one sentence to the next.

  • It would be funny if the Big O himself went on; the whelps on Fox would have no capability of dealing with someone who has, for over half a decade, fought off and beaten the hostile congress and still managed to push forth an agenda that actually betters the lives of many. I'd even tune in to see Obama destroy Hannity or O'Reilly...

  • Its about time! Fox is not a legit news outlet. They are an entertainment (gossip/opinion). What real news outlet would throw a complete hissy fit when the candidate their boss dumped millions into lost bigtime? None but fox. They have to objectify women to get the old men engaged and receptive to the daily propaganda meal.

  • Fox "News" is a joke and they are going to hate and lie and chastise President Obama, regardless.

    They're nothing but a propaganda machine for the GOP and I don't think they deserve any attention at all whatsoever.
