If you want examples I can start listing them.
I expect you'll ignore them, but it's the truth.
Maybe I know you better than you know yourself, and know what you REALLY mean.

Truthful answer? It wasn't.



How can I address what doesn't exist?
You automatically and cowardly abandon your previous claim as I exposed it as being disproven b.s.
Fox News? ?White House Bans Fox News? Story Is Starting To Unravel Become Clearer ? Updated | Mediaite

YOU are the one who wanted to talk about "As a matter of fact freedom and equality requires the government not to just tolerate different points of view but to treat them equally."
This description obviously matches the Fairness doctrine.
But you haven't the intellectual honesty to admit it.



Don't lie about the article contents.
I believe nothing just because Obama said something.
The story itself was absolute b.s. and unfounded. Lacking simple facts.
First of all, Fox omitted the fact that it was the Treasury Department that handled the interviews, not the White House. They also failed to produce the press announcement for the event, which Mediaite has obtained, or any direct quotes from the bureau chiefs involved. Most glaring, to me, was the fact that they didn’t initially interview Major Garrett who conducted the Feinberg interview, for their report. Garrett later filed a report on the incident, providing a much fairer account than that first report. Still, he doesn’t address whether Fox requested the interview. The whole thing smacked of an oversell, a minor snafu being spun into a scandal.

As the story spread yesterday, there was no on-the-record confirmation of the story from any source other than Fox News. None of the other network bureau chiefs stepped forward to take credit for this “courageous stand,” and no other documentation surfaced to support it.

Last night, Mediaite was first to learn that the Treasury Department denied the story, telling us “There was no plot to exclude Fox News, and they had the same interview that their competitors did. Much ado about absolutely nothing.”

Now, TPM is reporting that the Treasury Department did omit Fox News from a list of networks requesting an interview with Feinberg because Fox didn’t request one. The press bulletin for the event stated, “This is a pen and pad briefing only; no cameras or recording devices for broadcast purposes will be allowed.” The requests for on-camera interviews were a special request.
So Fox requested special that other organizations were not requesting. And THAT is why they were denied.
If they had requested the exact same thing other organizations were requesting, they would have likewise gotten it.

But you go continuing your boring lies like they haven't already been disproven. Move your goal-posts all over again for which you are legendary for.
Some conservatives have an innate need to think of themselves as victims...
Basic Federal government 101, Treasury is a part of the executive branch under the President's chain of command and responsibility. So the claim the "White House" conviently omitting Obama's war on FNC, had nothing to do with omitting them from the interview is pure bunk.

The so-called analysis complains that department heads were not quoted supporting the FNC exclusion story ignoring the ban on administration officials talking to FNC Obama had in place at the time. Like Hillary running Bleach Bit to destroy her email archive then proclaiming a lack of evidence proves innocence, Mediaite declares the FNC story false after Obama forbids gathering evidence.

At the time of Obama's FNC ban Treasury was headed by a dishonest tax cheat, but that's no reason for true believers to question the claim FNC didn’t ask for an interview. After all the IRS, another Treasury division would never single out groups for special processing of their applications for tax exempt status based on partisan politics then lie about it. Oh wait.

You claim you don't believe the story just because Obama said it but then repeat Mediaite's absurd story as if it was gospel.

I repeat:

What you refuse to acknowledge is really not going to keep me up at night.
It is the way of the right-wing victimhood complex to assume they are the victim regardless of the facts. In this case, there was no suppression.
Your refusal to admit that changes nothing.

What part of "no right to exist" do you not understand?
