You know I hate this. No meetings between Fox and Robert Gibbs.
How about complete separation of news and the White House? – except for the White House Correspondents Dinner. Just love those. Apparently,
Michael Clemente and Robert Gibbs met and the question is: has a truce
This report says that Fox News Channel’s
Senior V-P, Michael Clemente, and White House Press Secretary Robert
Gibbs met in Gibbs’ office in Washington, D.C. “Gibbs reached out to Clemente….” Nevertheless:
A Fox source said that the marching orders are to “continue doing what
we’re doing – reporting the news, asking tough questions and providing
analysis/opinion on shows like O’Reilly, Beck and Hannity.”
That’s good news.
A U.S. News and World Report article quotes the White House:
“They’re still at it,” says a senior Obama aide, who adds that
White House officials don’t expect to fire another shot in the battle
unless FOX strikes first.”
There is no indication in U.S. News and World report that a meeting between Clemente and Gibbs occurred.
Valerie Jarrett, the other half of Barack’s brain was
interviewed on CNN. When Campbell Brown asked Jarrett if she thought
Fox News was biased, Jarrett replied, “of course Fox is biased,” but
she and the other half of her brain plan to keep speaking “truth to
power.” Her message was hilariously mixed. When Ms. Brown rewinds the tape, she’ll
find she let a good opportunity go to waste, although I give her credit
for asking Jarrett the “biased’ question twice. Read what else Jarrett had to say here.
