Obama Taking Healthcare Fight to Enemy Territory of Fox News
March 16, 2010
(ChattahBox)—-In his final push towards the passage of an historic bill reforming our country’s broken healthcare system, President Obama is making an appearance on the “voice of opposition” network. You know that cable channel that’s the propaganda arm of the Republican Party that has spent an entire year misrepresenting healthcare reform, as a government takeover? What’s it called? Oh yah, Fox News, the network that employs the conspirator-in-chief Glenn Beck, who declared that President Obama is a “racist” with a “deep seated hatred for white people.”
Obama is scheduled to appear on Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier on Wednesday at 6 p.m. Obama has appeared on Fox News before and just recently, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs appeared on Fox News Sunday. But the relationship between Obama and Fox News, which has declared it’s the opposition network to the Obama administration, has certainly been strained to say the least. Fox News has consistently refused to air coverage of President Obama’s prime-time news conferences and the network has vigorously supported and championed the anti-Obama tea party movement.
According to Breir:
“This is a real opportunity to try to get some firm answers from President Obama on lingering questions about specifics in the health care legislation, the process Democrats are using to try to pass it, and the politics of its passage. And it’s an opportunity to try to pin the president down on a few other hot topics. We welcome the opportunity and think it will be a benefit to our viewers.”
Gibbs pointed out that Obama wants the conservative viewers of Fox News to hear the facts on healthcare reform. “Obviously they have a pretty big audience share and I think it’s safe to say that a lot of members that are undecided are going to be, they watch and their constituents watch this news,” said Gibbs.
