So, the White House is e-mailing MSNBC mid-broadcast to offer a “correction,” but says that Fox News Channel is “not a news organization.” Obviously, the White House’s definition of a news organization is a pandering, malleable collection of worshippers who immediately bend and twist at the administration’s will.
Note that Fox News Channel’s Glenn Beck–a thorn in the administration’s side, for sure–actually went so far as to install a dedicated hotline in his studio through which the White House can call and correct anything being said. Yet, no such call has come in.
This administration is interested in one thing: control. It’s message is not beneficial to America, and they know that if their agenda is finally understood by the American people, their days in Washington, D.C. are numbered. That’s the thing we always have to ask about every liberal idea and policy, whether it is health care reform or the nomination and confirmation of Supreme Court Justices like Sonia Sotomayor — if their ideas, plans and proposals are so great for America and Americans, why do they need to manipulate the message and obfuscate the truth? Why can’t liberalism be advertised as liberalism?
