And you thought President Obama just didn't like Glenn Beck. According to MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, the administration's repeated attacks on Fox News are an attempt to send a message to the rest of the news media: “Fox isn't a real news organization, so the stories it generates aren't real news.”
The Oct. 21 “Morning Joe” reported on an exchange yesterday (noted on Newsbusters by Noel Sheppard) between ABC Chief White House Correspondent Jake Tapper and White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs, in which Tapper asked whether it was “appropriate” for the administration to be deciding what news organizations are legitimate.
“I think Jake Tapper was onto what we got onto yesterday morning, because we've been having this debate: 'Does this make sense for them to shoot down at Fox News?'” said host Joe Scarborough. “No it doesn't if your target's Fox News.”
