Note: After you watch the above video make sure you check this out:
Does Big Money Own The Government? How Can We Fight It?.

Summary: Cenk plays and breaks down a clip of O'Reilly and Chris Wallace where they talk about how fair and balanced they are and how it's ridiculous that the president won't come on for a nice non-partisan interview. Cenk praises Obama for this decision explaining that it helps to (rightfully) undermine their credibility and highlight the hyper-partisan nature of Fox.

Watch These 5 Clips You May Have Missed:

1)-Excellent goals for TYT and DU!

2)-Orly Taitz Gets Pwned By Her Own Client

3)-TYT Interviews: Ret. Police Chief Makes Case For Legalizing Marijuna (w/ New #'s)

4)-Did You Know Domestic Violence Could Be A Pre-existing Condition?

2. Well, it's entertaining to watch Cenk break down the video of it.
It's always more entertaining than just watching a clip of right wing pundits with no analysis (that can be pretty aggravating).

18. Oh I know.
It's just that a fair amount of people refuse to watch clips of right wingers but some don't realize that that Cenk debunks the clips. At the very least they can fast forward to Cenk's analysis.

3. He didn't snub them -- he just focused on news networks on Sunday.
As for appearing on Letterman, he was simply focusing on entertainment that actually entertains some people.

Faux News just couldn't make either cut.

5. K&R to the greatest. Hearing Cenk laugh over these fools is
some of the funniest stuff I've heard in a long time.

7. A great example of using effective GOP tactics against them.
Saint Digby pointed out for eight years, how the Bush Admin would snub reporters and journalists, and reward favorable coverage with more WH attention.

It works, and it's awesome to see Obama dish some of that shit out to Fox.

:rofl:

16. And he should stick to it.
No Democrat should ever submit to a Faux News interview or appearance.

9. That's fun. I enjoy watching Cenk laugh
at stupid stuff like this. The only way they can construe that independents watch Fox - some Republican supporters (i.e. Neal Boortz) call themselves independents, probably to disassociate themselves from the bad name of the Republicans.

14. Yeah, I just saw it..not the faux clip bc I couldn't
get past "Obama doesn't like us very much" WAH! But, I waited for Cenk to come back and tell it like it is.

The only ones who watch fauxsn00ze are the least informed Americans..they did a study on that, too.

Where they speak English but it's only progaganda for the fearwing..I'd rather watch Univision in Espanol~

15. In the clip, they (O'Reilly and Wallace) seem to be
trying to convince themselves that they're so relevant. Well, sorry, just saying it doesn't make it so. I think Obama's right to disregard them.

Original message

"White House: "Fox is an ideological outlet...not that whining particularly stengthens their case..."

"We figured Fox would rather show 'So You Think You Can Dance' than broadcast an honest discussion about health insurance reform," White House spokesman Josh Earnest told ABC News.

"Fox is an ideological outlet where the president has been interviewed before and will likely be interviewed again," Earnest said. "Not that the whining particularly strengthens their case for participation any time soon."

And, I'm extremely glad this playin' that faux is anything but has come to an inglorious end.

And, thank you, Cenk & ihavenobias.
