Obama Spokesman Takes On Fox News Anchor`

Senator Obama spokesperson Bill Burton appeared on Fox News on Monday and pushed back on Fox anchor (aka McCain cheerleader) Megyn Kelly.

Watch this video and please tell me where Ms. Kelly's journalistic impartiality is anywhere on display.

I appreciate the way Mr. Burton handled the hypocrisy. The utter joke that a journalist would portray Obama as a socialist, let alone an entire network, is treated with the scorn that they deserve.

Burton was asked to appear after slamming Fox News in a statement earlier in the day.

According to the New York Times:
"This is a fake news controversy drummed up by the all-too-common alliance of Fox News, the Drudge Report and John McCain, who apparently decided to close out his campaign with the same false, desperate attacks that have failed for months,” Mr. Burton said. “In this seven-year-old interview, Senator Obama did not say that the courts should get into the business of redistributing wealth at all.”

I find these interviews amazing where the commentator asks a question and doesn't allow the guest to answer. Completely expected of Fox News. Fair and balanced not hardly..

Why do they call themselves Fair and Balance? When you are fair and balanced you report the news. Not become the news...

She is yet another example of brassy arrogance mistaking itself for relevance. But, hey, it worked for Bill O. Absolutely nothing from this channel would pass an real journalistic litmus test. Fox and its bleach blond loudmouth are about to face The End Times, for real. And they are scared. Where's yer faith, idiots?

Fox News is fair and balanced, the only network out there who is. Do you really believe Cafferty is fair and balanced? He spews hatred and he is one of those old, wrinkled white men who just won't leave it to the new, up and coming younger more diverse group. People say she should not interupt this Obama spokesman but if she didn't he would go on and on with his propaganda and they only have a few minutes with each segment. Magyn Kelly is great, she is my Girl!! I love her!!! Yeah!!!
