In case you’ve not been paying attention, the White House is feuding with Fox News.
In the latest salvo, President Obama’s senior political adviser David Axelrod told ABC’s “This Week” that Fox’s programming “is not really news” but “pushing a point of view.”
White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel echoed those remarks on CNN’s “State of the Union” program Sunday, saying Fox “is not a news organization so much as it has a perspective.”
The White House began pushing back against Fox’s coverage of the Obama administration a week ago after the president won the Nobel Peace Prize.

White House communications director Anita Dunn noted that conservatives who were “rejoicing” over Obama’s failure to bring home the Olympics seemed “quite bitter” about the Nobel prize.
“Fox News often operates almost as either as the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party,” she said.
