Fox News not called on again to ask a question to Obama

A transcript of the press conference from April 29th is here. The lamest, softball question was clearly from the New York Times. CBS TV and Radio got one question each. CNN got one question. Black Entertainment Television got one question. Chuck Todd (NBC), who is a strong liberal and frequently openly shows his bias, got one question. Fox News had zero questions.

Obama: Jeff Zelleny (New York Times).

Question: Thank you, Mr. President.

During these first 100 days, what has surprised you the most about this office? Enchanted you the most from serving in this office? Humbled you the most? And troubled you the most?

I was appalled at Zelleny's questions. I just about vomited, and got up and left the room.

And of course they didn't let Fox ask a question. It might not have been a fawning, worshipful softball.

Well Fox got to ask its fawning, worshipful softball questions of Bush and Chaney.

Unfortunately, there are no news outlets that are "fair and balanced".

Dear JP:

Please provide me with such an example by Fox News. I am willing to bet there there was no such similar example by Fox. Not a single one.

The media today holds to the belief that Fox News' biased reporting facilitated Bush to steal the election, therefore, it is ethical to redress such a wrong with their own lack of independance and pro progressive efforts.
