For Fuck's Sake, Don't Legitimize Fox News!
Potentially bad news:
Fox News Channel and the Obama administration are talking.

The network confirmed a Politico report that Fox news executive Michael Clemente met at the White House on Wednesday with Robert Gibbs, President Barack Obama's press secretary. There were no details given about the meeting.

I think it would be a big mistake for the Obama White House to abandon its war on Fox News. Here are just a few reasons.

UPDATE: Frank Rich agrees.

Just a Thought
Since Media Matters arrived on the scene in 2004, I've listened to a lot less right-wing talk radio. However, for the past couple days, I've been listening to Glenn Beck's radio show and watching his television show on Fox News. Beck really reminds me of the type of guy who would try to sell me an AMC Matador.

No Need to Make Up Quotes: Rush Limbaugh Has Said Plenty of Racist Things
During the controversy over whether radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh should be allowed to be minority owner of the NFL St. Louis Ram franchise, a couple racist quotes (extolling slavery and MLK assassin James Earl Ray) were falsely attributed to Limbaugh. When I heard about them, I knew they were false. The reasons: they were said to be from the 1990's; had Limbaugh actually made the statements on his radio show in the 90's, I would have heard about them earlier.

Who posted the phony quotes? I don't know but one thing I know is that, like the Killian documents, the fact that some in the media have jumped on the quotes has allowed Limbaugh to play the victim and sidestep the real issue: Limbaugh's longtime pattern of appealing to racists. Yesterday, when I tuned into Limbaugh's radio show, Limbaugh was whining that he was shut out of the NFL because of the phony quotes and that he was unfairly being called a racist. This was the same line of reasoning that I have heard on other right-wing talk radio shows since then. Did Limbaugh or a Limbaugh ally plant the phony quotes in order to garner sympathy for Limbaugh and muddy the waters? I can only speculate.

The fact is that Limbaugh has a history of making racist comments so there's no need for anyone to make anything up. Let's discuss some of Limbaugh's racist comments and actions (this is by no means an exhaustive list):

1. Limbaugh was one of the biggest defenders of the rogue cops who beat Rodney King. In the 1990's, Limbaugh devoted large segments of his radio and television show to try to excuse their actions. For instance, Limbaugh made this incredible statement on his radio show, "The videotape of the Rodney King beating played absolutely no role in the conviction of two of the four officers. It was pure emotion that was responsible for the guilty verdict."

2. Before Trent Lott was exposed for waxing nostalgic about Strom Thurmond's 1948 Dixiecrat presidential run, here's what Limbaugh said about Thurmond's past: "He's not encumbered by being politically correct.... If you want to know what America used to be--and a lot of people wish it still were--then you listen to Strom Thurmond." Irony alert: One recent Limbaugh apologist referred to a "media lynch mob" against Limbaugh; Thurmond's 1948 platform explicitly opposed federal anti-lynching laws.

3. I noted on my blog in 2003 that Limbaugh did a sketch that parodied the 2004 Democratic presidential candidates--comparing them to characters in Gone with the Wind--when Carol Moseley-Braun's name was announced, a sound-alike of the character Prissy shouted, "I don't know nothin' about runnin' for no president!" No surprise, whenever Limbaugh would address Moseley-Braun on his radio show, he would play the theme to The Jeffersons TV show.

4. Limbaugh has a problem with the NAACP. In the past he has called the group "the NAALCP (National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People)." Despite a history of nonviolence (The organization has recently celebrated a century of nonviolent activism), Limbaugh said, "The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies."

5. I wrote about Limbaugh's reaction to the prospect of Trent Lott resigning form the Senate and Mike Espy, an African-American, taking Lott's seat.

6. Limbaugh on Jesse Jackson: "Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?"

7. Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting reported the following: "In 1994, Limbaugh mocked St. Louis for building a rail line to East St. Louis 'where nobody goes.' East St. Louis is home to roughly 40,000 residents -- 98 percent of whom are African-Americans. One of its 40,000 'nobodies' is star NFL linebacker Bryan Cox."

8. Limbaugh to a black caller, "Take that bone out of your nose and call me back."

9. Limbaugh on the NFL: "NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons"

10. Limbaugh on American blacks: "They are 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?"

11. In 1992, on his now-defunct TV show, Limbaugh expressed his ire when Spike Lee urged that black schoolchildren get off from school to see his film Malcolm X: "Spike, if you're going to do that, let's complete the education experience. You should tell them that they should loot the theater, and then blow it up on their way out."

Unfortunately, I could go on.

The White House Should Damn The Critics and Go Full Speed Ahead Against Fox News
Since the Obama White House has been candid about Fox News being a partisan operation posing as a news outlet, the push back from Fox has been predictable. A few nonpartisans has also questioned the White House's marginalizing of Fox. Here are the main objections:

1. The Obama White House is creating an "enemies list" against journalists, the same way that the Nixon White House acted toward The Washington Post and New York Times. Glenn Beck, appealing to journalists in other media outlets, compared the White House's actions to those of the Nazis. This, of course, is sophistry. The Nixon White House targeted The Post because they were engaging in legitimate journalism that resulted in Nixon's resignation. On the other hand, the Obama White house is calling a spade a spade.

2. Many of Fox News viewers are Democrats and independents, and the White House needs to reach out to these viewers, and that by marginalizing Fox, they are turning off these viewers. Fox News Democrat Pat Caddell recently made this argument on Glenn Beck's Fox News program. As I have pointed out previously, the best way to reach out to non-wing-nut Fox News viewers is to marginalize Fox and inform these people that Fox is not a legitimate news organization. By publicizing FNC's opposition to real journalism, it will turn off non-wing-nuts, leaving Fox with a rump viewership which will further marginalize it.

3. The Obama White House is only helping Fox News by increasing their ratings. Some people who are no fan of Fox News have made this argument on various cable show. However, this is a fallacious argument because, on cable, Fox News is the only game in town when it comes to legitimizing the wing-nut delusions of the hardcore twenty percent of the population that views Obama as a Kenyan-born usurper who is simultaneously a godless communist and a radical Muslim who wants to impose Sharia Law and socialism on Americans. Because the White House is taking on Fox, it will increase the number of wing-nuts watching it, but it will also decrease the number of non-wing-nuts watching it.

There is simply no reason why the Obama White House shouldn't stay the course.

UPDATE: One recent example of Fox News' agenda.

Former President Bush Kisses Sun Myung Moon's Ass (Again)
Read about it on the Sun Myung Moon blog.

Fox News and Opinion Dynamics Violated Ethical Standards With Health Care Reform Poll
Last night Rachel Maddow addressed some leading questions that Fox News used in a poll of respondents prior to asking their opinion of health care reform. Maddow referenced Nate Silver's article on how the poll used loaded questions to skew the findings, e.g., "Do you think President Obama apologizes too much to the rest of the world for past U.S. policies?" and "Do you think Barack Obama's travel and speaking schedule makes him look more like he is a candidate on the campaign trail or more like he is the president of the United States?"

What I found incredible is that Joe Trippi appeared on the show and balked at denouncing the clearly biased polling. Not only was the poll flawed but it clearly violates the American Association for Public Opinion Research's Code of Professional Ethics & Practice for, among other things, "knowingly select[ing] research tools and methods of analysis that yield misleading conclusions" and for not exercising "due care in developing research designs and survey instruments, and in collecting, processing, and analyzing data, taking all reasonable steps to assure the reliability and validity of results."

Glenn Beck Thinks Teabaggers and 9-12 Flunkies Deserved The Nobel Peace Prize
(Updated below)
This morning when I heard that President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, I knew the wing-nuts would go crazy. Although I try to avoid right-wing talk radio, I tuned in to Rush and Beck. No surprise for El Rushbo (e.g., here and here). However, Beck said that the teabaggers, 9-12ers, and town hall zanies should have received the award.

UPDATE I: A fellow blogger has a transcript:
The Nobel Peace Prize should be turned down by Barack Obama and given, you ready for this, this one is going to make headlines, should be given to the tea party goers and the 9/12 project.

UPDATE II: ThinkProgess has audio and a transcript.
