Yep, the media in America sucks. But it sucks everywhere and at least in the US there are enough people to make quality news viable. In Australia there's just crap - crappy newspapers and crappy TV news.

At least, for the time being there is freedom of expression in the US. Obama would have it the other way. Australian journalism is pretty good IMHO.

Obama is a con-man, and the democrats are a manipulative party. Anyone that dares turn the lights on those bunch of cockroaches will be targeted. Did anyone NOT expect them to be so hypersensitive to ANY criticism? What happened to all the brownshirt accusations that were a favorite rallying cry used my libidiots against G Bush? Folks, we ain't seen nothing yet. Bambis next target is talk radio and the internet. Now, lets see how long this post stays up before the liberal censor from JT deletes it..............

I think calling Obama a con-man is going too far. However, he should stop the "talking teleprompter" routine and start getting serious about the job. Having people around for a beer summit is not very presidential, differing little from John McCain's laments regarding "Joe the Plumber."

Moreover, Obama needs to start showing some substance in his actions, rather than just appearing to fawn for the cameras. A good case in point was his meeting with next of kin of service people killed in Afghanistan. While it was a good gesture to go out and meet the returning bodies, turning the whole affair into a dog-and-pony show for the benefit of the media is not a good thing.

The guy is an ego maniac. Fox News has already exposed the guy as a charlatan and a lame duck.

The more shows he appears on, the more people can see through him. Hahaha

The problem is, Fox News has been spot ion concerning the President........which is why he doesn't like Fox News. President O. is no better than Clinton, really....

Criticism is not censorship nor the diminishing of any freedoms of expression. Fox will continue to present its view of things regardless of what Obama thinks.

Good, then we can expect prosperity sometime soon.

There isn't a single reliable or worthy television news source left in the U.S. NPR has gone mainstream (except for the independent specialty shows), and we have probably 1-1/2 decent newspapers left.
