Fox & Friends’ hosts: Why weren’t we invited to the White House with MSNBC?

“I’m shocked by that!” Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade exclaimed the next morning. “Invite five talk show hosts in? All from the same channel? That’s outrageous!”


“It might be outrageous, but what I’m saying is I’m not surprised by it,” co-host Gretchen Carlson remarked. “I mean, that station is delivering the message of this administration. So, it makes sense.”

“Yeah, but that particular channel, that’s all they’re going to do anyway,” co-host Steve Doocy opined. “It would be nice to see somebody from CBS, somebody from NBC… Fox News Channel invited as well.”

“Think about it, the president said he’s not talking to Republicans unless they agree to raise the rates,” Kilmeade insisted. “He hasn’t talked to Majority Leader Cantor in over a year, but, yet, it’s time to meet the talk show hosts on another channel. That’s incredible.”

“Maybe it was a thank you of sorts for the re-election,” Carlson concluded.

These ass clowns had no problem when they were blowing the horn for Bush. Jesus Gawd, their viewers are just fucking brain damaged. You know those cartoons where the evil genius is plotting another fucked up scheme, and EVERYONE knows the real deal, well everyone but FAUX viewers.

Too fucking stupid to breathe. How does this even happen?

Since it goes back so many years of distortions, slander, lies and innuendoes.




I don't think the trees around the White House want their CO2 either.

is why Fox Spews is even considered a news outlet and why they believe that they should be invited to the WH for anything other than an ass whooping.

I sincerely hope that the Obama Administration completely freezes FOX out. zero interviews, no questions, no press badges. It's not a legitmate source of news, stop treating it like one.

Just so he could LAUGH right in their faces.

an invitation would be justified. Until then I would think it would not be the case.

29. I can't think of a single reason why they should have been invited.

Faux has become nothing more than the propaganda arm of the GOP. If they ever become a legitimate news organization they might be entitled to an invitation, but I'm not holding my breath.

30. So let's say I have next-door neighbors I don't like.

And because I don't like them I blow my leaves into their yard, throw my dog's poop over the fence into their garden, park in front of their driveway, yell at their kids, knock over their mailbox, and steal their newspaper off their steps. Then, when they throw a big Christmas party and invite all the other neighbors but not me, I get all huffy and outraged and can't understand why I was left out.

There is nothing wrong with "courting" the media...especially if the media you are courting, at least makes an effort at "real" reporting..

Fox is openly hostile..why invite them?

39. Bush kinda did this for FOX during his second term....

so I can understand Obama doing it for MSNBC. And look....if he is not going to actually sit down and do interviews with those MSNBC shows he might as well give those guys private one-on-ones.


As for FOX....he already gave Bill O'Reilly an interview during the SB and was treated shabbily in the process. And when the entire network works day and night to bring him down, such as spreading rumors that Obama was watching nonchalantly from some secret Batcave as Americans were being killed in Lybia, why would he ever give those fools the time of day.
