i'm having a hard time giving a shit about the so-called war between the white house and fox news. the obama administration dared to state the obvious, that fox news really isn't a news source. that prompted a media wide hissy fit (which seems largely comprised of media personalities accusing the white house of throwing a hissy fit)

i guess i shouldn't be surprised. the media likes to talk about itself. but that just explains why it's getting so much attention, not why i should care. and nothing in the current kerfuffle is doing anything to convince me that fox is a real news source. it's not like any of fox's defenders are addressing the substance of the charge. they're just flipping out about the idea of the president questioning the credibility of an (alleged) news source, as if that hasn't happened many times before.
