  •  The move to exclude Fox in the interview (0+ / 0-)

    was based on the pool system used by the five news media outlets that share costs and rotate duties at the WH.  This move was a follow up to Axelrod's statement that the other networks should not treat Fox as a news organization.  Basically Axelrod said that Fox should be froze out of the WH pool.  By the WH excluding Fox and the other networks acquiescing the effect would be the WH controlling the Press.  Fortunately the Press said no and thankfully the WH saw the error of it's way.

      •  I saw that too. But then I read the (0+ / 0-)

        NY Times article and am really confused.  Is Fox making up shit again or is the WH spinning damage control.  Who the hell knows anymore.  There are some heavy duty games going on by both sides and I hope the WH keeps its eye on the ball and doesn't get distracted.  The repugs are famous for distracting.  Reminds me of the LBJ story of when he wanted to spread a rumor about his opponent being a little to close to livestock.  When called on it by a campaign adviser that no one would believe it LBJ said he knew that, but he wanted to hear his opponent deny it.
