• White House Drops “News” From Fox News Place Cards At State Of The Union Lunch

    Perhaps no presidency has been plagued by so many public displays of pettiness as Obama’s. And no news network gets this administration’s panties in a wad quite like Fox News.

    President Hope and Change’s beef with Fox News is no secret. And it dates back years.

    Perhaps the most memorable shot Obama’s White House took at Fox News was in 2009 when it claimed that Fox News was “a wing of the Republican party.”

    Today, Fox anchor Shepard Smith called out the White House for yet another petty gut punch at Tuesday’s State of the Union lunch.

    President Obama held a pre-State of the Union lunch where he announced a number of his policy proposals in front of a small group of big name news anchors.

    Toward the end of his live TV show, Smith pointed out the presidential snub.

    “I sat next to Brian Williams, and we all had these place cards, and his said ‘Brian Williams, NBC News,’” Smith explained. “And across from me was David Muir – the new guy on ABC — it said ‘David Muir, ABC News.’”

    “And I looked at mine, and it doesn’t say anything about news,” he continued, holding up the place card. “It just says ‘Fox.’ And I looked at Bret Baier’s, and it said, ‘Bret Baier, Fox.’ And all the rest of them said news.”

    “I mean I don’t care, lunch was great,” Smith said. “But I guess, message received? I think Bret and I are good to go with the news part.”

    Once again, Obama is seen being a bigger prick to the American press than he is to his real enemies.
