Obama, Fox News, And The New York Times.

Way back in October then-Sen. Barack Obama granted a then-rare campaign interview. In which it went to the N.Y. Times Magazine and the candidate reportedly let the writer knew just how he felt:

“I am convinced that if there were no Fox News, I might be two or three points higher in the polls. If I were watching Fox News, I wouldn’t vote for me, right? “Because the way I’m portrayed 24/7 is as a freak! I am the latte-sipping, New York Times-reading, Volvo-driving, no-gun-owning, effete, politically correct, arrogant liberal. Who wants somebody like that?”

It’s not unusual for public figures to feel mis-portrayed or even abused by media organizations. John McCain and his people expressed some strong concerns several times about the same Times newspaper.

President-elect Obama has held four news conferences and two sit-down TV interviews since election day, including three news conferences three days in a row this week. He’s broken the news conference record for all recent presidents-elect.

At these news sessions since Nov. 4, the future commander in chief has answered a total of 22 questions from different reporters. Wednesday, it was NPR, the N.Y. Daily News and CNN.

But not once has the election victor called on a representative of Fox News or given the New York Times any play. It seems as if Obama just don't won't to acknowledge them. Personal I don't blame him for taking that stand. Fox is nothing but a racist hateful network.

Because the way I’m portrayed 24/7 is as a freak! I am the latte-sipping, New York Times-reading, Volvo-driving, no-gun-owning, effete, politically correct, arrogant liberal.

President-elect Obama do have a point and who can forget those 24 hr loop of god dam America.
