Respect for viewers and the Wh. House? Fox News doesn’t carry Pres. Obama live

Posted on September 12, 2012 by


As the reaction to the tragic deaths of American diplomats at the consulate in Benghazi unfolded on the airwaves, Fox News made a curious decision to not carry live the comments made by the President this morning in the Rose Garden alongside Sec. Of State Hillary Clinton. Fox covered at least part of the time Pres. Obama was speaking with commercials. CNN did carry Mr. Obama live.

We have to shake our heads about this decision which plays into the hands of those, including us, who believe the Fox News claims of “fair and balanced” are disingenuous.
