Was Obama right to skip Fox News?

Standard

As President Barack Obama goes on an unprecedented presidential blitz of media appearances, the White House is in a war of words with the network that did not get an interview: Fox.

Dana Perino, who served as White House press secretary for President George W. Bush, says the president risks “diluting the bully pulpit” by doing so many interviews in such a short period of time.

In talking to former CBS reporter Bernie Goldberg about President Obama’s Sunday morning rounds, with the exception of Fox News, Bill O’Reilly says that such a practice, especially if it’s “payback” for Fox TV foregoing to air Obama’s speeches in favor of network programming – is “immature.”
