Barack Obama's team has scheduled a primetime "100 Days" news conference tonight, set up in eager anticipation of such tough media questions such as "how do you manage to be both brilliant and handsome at the same time?".
All the networks have dutifully fallen in line behind the Thug-In-Chief, except one - FOX. Via the AP:
The Fox network is sticking with its regular schedule over President Barack Obama this week.
The network is turning down the president's request to show his prime-time news conference on Wednesday. The news conference marks Obama's 100th day in office. Instead of the president, Fox viewers will see an episode of the Tim Roth drama "Lie to Me."
It's the first time a broadcast network has refused Obama's request. This will be the third prime-time news conference in Obama's presidency. ABC, CBS and NBC are airing it.
Three press conferences in 100 days is a lot, even for a self-absorbed narcissist. Gateway Pundit points out the obvious:
Oh, NBC, CBS and ABC will also be airing "Lie to Me," the Obama version.
The intelligentsia at Think Progress are soiling their diapers:
I'm stripping FOX out of my cable service.
I hear there's a missing white woman somewhere.
The headline should read: "FOX admits Obama's 100 days conference is going to be totally awesome and that there's no way they can rebut it."
Or perhaps, "FOX officially no longer counts as a major television network."
Perhaps these enlightened geniuses don't understand the differences between FOX Entertainment and FOX News?
I can't wait to here what comes out of the mouths (besides rabid hatred) of the so-called mainstream media today. How dare FOX defy The One? Oh, we're gonna have some laughs....
