Fox and Facts
- Fox "News" and other, similar, Neocon media outlets continue their selective amnesia about Presidential administrations. First, one of the former Bush spokesmodels -- Dana Perino -- stated that there was no terrorist attack during the eight years Bush was in office, magically forgetting the tragedy of 9-11-2001. Naturally, that ridiculous statement went unchallenged as she was appearing on Fox "News" with Sean Hannity at the time.
As they accuse Obama of avoiding the press (itself a flip-flop from Fox's previous admonishment that he was always seeking the cameras) they seem to forget that their own Favorite Son, George Dubya, failed to hold a presser for his first nine months in office, and then entered an extended press blackout from July of 2008 to January of 2009, a (gasp!) six month period during which he avoided even a single reporter's question. Darn those pesky facts that keep interfering with their "news" reporting.
