I must have missed the advertisements on the news programs; however, I do know that Glenn Beck, Mike Huckabee, and Sean Hannity did support and talk up the "Tea Party" movement on their programs. Please remember that the three aforementioned individuals do not host news shows, but "political" talk shows on the network (the same as Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow do on MSNBC). These shows deal with opinions and the last I checked we were permitted to have opinions and discuss them in open forums like TV and radio networks.
The Fox Network has valid news programs that appear to be balanced and objective. The network doesn't tell you what to think, but reports the news as clear and complete as possible allowing you to take from it what you will.
Further, Fox News did report on the anti-Iraq war protests in this and other countries around the world as they developed. I cannot say what the "political" talk shows did since I don't take, nor do I have the time, to watch and listen to every talk show on the airwaves. I do have a life.
Considering the White House's stance and public attacks on Fox News, President Obama should be happy that Fox still seems to be able to report happenings with his administration in an unbiased manner (and I hope it stays that way). I do know from watching Fox on occasion that they do find his "war" with them amusing. The President might wish to rethink his "don't talk to Fox" mantra before he tarnishes his reputation with the electorate.
After all, he wanted the job and now he has it and all of the questions, answers, criticisms and political posturing that come with the job. Like the old saying goes "If you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen."
