The War on Fox News -- Updated

According to the Chicago Tribune:

At least one Democratic political strategist has gotten a blunt warning from the White House to never appear on Fox News Channel, an outlet that presidential aides have depicted as not so much a news-gathering operation as a political opponent bent on damaging the Obama administration.

Political consultants are a staple of cable television talk shows, analyzing current events based on their own experiences working on campaigns or in government.

One Democratic strategist said that shortly after an appearance on Fox he got a phone call from a White House official telling him not to be a guest on the show again. The call had an intimidating tone, he said.
It was creepy enough that the administration was trying to block administration officials from appearing on Fox News programs, now it is trying to intimidate Democratic political strategists.

Obama's march to Marxism continues. The White House gets creepier by the day.

Update: Further down in the article in the Chicago Tribune, I found this quote:

White House Communications Director Anita Dunn said Thursday night that she had checked with colleagues who "deal with TV issues'' and they had not told people to avoid Fox. On the contrary, they had urged people to appear on the network, Dunn wrote in an email.
This quote to me proves the truth of the White House intimidation. If Maoist Anita Dunn said it, the opposite is probably true.

Update. Fax calls itself fair and balanced because it strives to bring in both points of view. Isn't it strange that the administration is working to keep Fox from balancing its presented commentary with the administration point of view. Glenn Beck keeps a hotline beside him on his television program to give the White House the immediate opportunity to challenge misinformation. The White House never does challenge, so all information Glenn presents must be true, right? It is at least unarguably unchallenged.
