Brit Hume: "Obama Deliberately Ignored Major Networks at Presser to Avoid Tough Questions"

Just stumbled across this I guess the subtlety of avoiding them to make a point that they SUCK is lost on him

Fox News’ Brit Hume was bewildered at the complete lack of hard-hitting questions at President Obama‘s press conference on Tuesday, calling out Obama for ignoring the network TV correspondents because, as Hume saw it, they are traditionally tougher on presidents than other journalists.


Just passing this on for us to chew up & spit out

And I often wonder about the other Networks.

Run to Paula Dean, she has some southern comfort waiting for you, with black men in suits, but they don't act like Obama.

9. Britt Hume and Fox "News" have no credibility, it's much harder to get that virtue back

once you have squandered it.

Thanks for the thread, FirstLight.

People are shutting out cable tv and "religious" programming that does the same thing.

25. That he missed the point, I think SUMS UP the (President's) point quite nicely...

can we re-instate the fairness doctrine and Publicly Subsidize print newspapers already?

Oh, also, hard-hitting questions? The front row of the White House Press Room should look like this:
Rachel Maddow, Chris Hedges, Jeremy Scahill, Lee Pappa, Bill Moyers, Cornell West.

Otherwise, go fuck yourself, Brit. You and yours are Court Stenographers, too dumb to know that you just got given the finger by the single most powerful human being on the planet. ON NATIONAL FUCKING TELEVISION no less.

Are the major networks liberally biased pro Obama propaganda a la Pravda or too intimidating to the president? Quit talking out both sides of your mouth.

30. John Boehner ignores the press all the time. When he does answer, it is no more than two

questions with snarky answers.
