The White House Food Fight with Fox News Discussed on the ABC Sunday Show

Laura Ingraham, you are so not invited back. Laura is one of my favorite conservatives, and I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this on ABC: I thought there would be a total cat fight at the George Stephanopoulos "Round Table" on This Week--Laura Ingraham, outspoken conservative and Cynthia Tucker of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, even more outspoken leftist. That didn't really happen, but Ingraham got in a fair shot at clueless Charlie Gibson of ABC News.

George Will started it off by saying that "no president in the history of this Republic has less reason to complain about his treatment by the press than Barack Obama. Liberals have academia, they have the mainstream media, they have Hollywood. They're all for diversity in everything but thought. . . ."

My prediction is that the White House will back off from their fight with Fox News. They've totally lost, and it was never clear what they thought they would accomplish in the first place. All they really did was drive up the ratings on Fox News. Brilliant strategy, White House. Why don't you get to work on what you were elected to do. [No, on second thought, why don't you continue this totally pointless, laughable war with Fox News so that you don't get the work done that you were elected to do. Much better.]
