Perhaps all of President Barack Obama's (D) czars and czarinas were too busy stashing their Christmas loot into offshore accounts untouched by the IRS so there weren't enough to appear on all the major networks to inform the American public on the terror attack in the skies above Detroit.
But then again, maybe not. At Front Page Magazine, Liz Blaine describes how the administration politicized this major event which affects all Americans by ignoring one network. You know which one.
Taking his vendetta with Fox News to a new low, President Obama sent an administration spokesperson to appear on every network but Fox to discuss the Northwest Airlines flight 253 terror attack.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs appeared on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos, NBC's Meet the Press and CBS' Face the Nation. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano appeared on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos, NBC's Meet the Press, and CNN's State of the Nation.
Communicating to the American people the facts and status of an attempted terror attack should be of paramount importance to a President plunging in the polls, but Obama appears more obsessed with ostracizing Fox News than keeping the American people informed of the war on terror.
The sounds of silence didn't seem to affect Fox's coverage though; perhaps even enhanced it as they didn't have to cope with the phony administration reassurances that all is fine with the flying public as long as you don't use the bathroom in the last segment of your trip.
