The Obama administration declared Fox News - and its owner, reporters and commentators - shills for the President's Republican opponents Sunday.
"Let's not pretend they're a news network," White House communications director Anita Dunn said on CNN's "Reliable Sources," firing the latest salvo in the long-simmering feud.
"Fox News often operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party," Dunn said.
"What I think is fair to say about Fox, and certainly the way we view it, is that it really is more a wing of the Republican Party," she added.

Ummm ya so
We all knew this
and MSNBC is a wing of the Democratic party along with the Huffington Post
Tell me guys, how popular was the Huffington Post before Obama ran for President?
Though CNN is kind of in the middle it does tend to lean towards the left more often than not.
If you are going to call out Fox News I sincerely think you should call out everyone.

Basically, I think you pretty well summed it up. One network is basically anti-Obama / heavy right leaning (Fox). The others range from being basically cheerleaders for team Obama (MSNBC) to more often than not leaning left (CNN).
What I don't get is how come the if administration has most networks except one praising them - they get all bent out of shape about the one that does critize them?
Its almost like they are saying, "All the TV news stations love us except you guys and that's because you have cooties!!! So there! So you'll just have to stay home with your cooties while we have ice cream!!"
Its almost a school kid type reaction of a popular kid who isn't liked by someone so they lash out at them.

Fox caters for right leaning viewers and considering there is less competition for this audience it's simply good business.

Fox News is Unfair and Unbalanced just like Cheney is - after all Cheney loved the news outlet because it met all his Dr. Strangelove requirements!
