-- Obama Justice Department's targeting of our chief Washington correspondent James Rosen is just the latest example of the administration's disdain for little Fox News.
-- we can spend an entire program devoted to this topic but here just a few examples who can forget back in 2009.
When then White House communications director Anita doesn't try to launch a war against FOX News Watch.
-- the reality of it is that Fox News often.
Operates almost as -- the research arm -- the communications arm of the Republican Party.
And I did not go over very well but it wasn't just Obama's liberal allies who did his dirty work the president has also taken swipes at us here's just one example.
I've got a bit one.
-- entirely devoted to.
Attacking my administration.
Made that -- -- that's a pretty assuming that -- about fox all look so that's a pretty big megaphone.
I'm not that's not all who can forget when then candidate Obama took many shots a little -- me on the campaign trail here's just one get this is our next -- He wrote in fact.
-- not only the Democratic Party.
But this is how our country from a -- -- criticism.
To a culture of recognition thanks.
Well -- A wound.
Up with a good plug.
We -- -- pretty good come on up to put mr.
-- on Fox News.
-- -- -- -- -- I'll put I'll put mr.
-- up against Sean Hannity.
-- -- -- Pair me up that was -- a threat Mr.
President we're just a preview of what's the common terms of your desire.
To intimidate conservatives joining me now and reaction.
Fox's political analyst Kirsten Powers and radio talk show host of the Salem radio network.
Our friend Dennis -- guys what not to shop at some -- -- -- -- -- imagine little -- me ever saying I'm gonna put so I was sort of some are -- -- -- -- The fact they'll force on.
Well I miss the attack site it was a great crowd at my wedding -- that it.
Now I look at -- in all seriousness what the White House did was completely despicable and I think now people are starting to see.
You know we we got the taste that it early on this all started.
Pretty quickly after he was an office it was just -- -- not even quite a year in office that they launched this.
War on Fox News that and that thing that I love about that clip that you showed of him at the beginning.
Is that he says there's this one news stage you know I have one news station that attacks me all day long setting aside whether it's true that he's being attacked all day long.
You know and he's complaining.
That out of all in the media there is one place that allows people to say things about him that he doesn't like.
-- you know let's -- perspective I think any president would be happy if that.
Was there situation I think that's really well Saturday night I I've always felt -- that he's pretty thin skinned and he doesn't really want any criticize me he likes the warship that he gets from the rest of the media.
Look this is actually a trade and I got serious about the president all the time and it's not personal he's a man of the left.
The left the needs a mobile to succeed.
If there -- one professor at a university whose conservative.
She's a problem if there was one form of media that it is not good -- liberal that's a problem you know -- -- a list of the 200.
Most prestigious colleges if there's such it's such -- thing you can even speak up.
And not one of the replica of the our graduation speakers this year was a conservative not want.
They don't want to hear us because they have to -- hermetically sealed intellectual and moral world.
In order to prevail and that's why your existence and the existence of talk radio which of course from both -- Or such anathema to them.
And then the Blogosphere -- I mean there's there is a new journalism out there and it's have an -- pretty dramatic impact.
-- so we just had on Juan Williams and who -- -- pointed out what Eric Holder said.
That the talk about James Rosen this is not something I've ever been involved in heard of -- would think would be wise policy that's targeting journalists.
We now know that in fact he did.
Then you go back to fast and furious do you think that Eric Holder lied under oath then -- addition we ran.
Vacations for them.
Well if you live and -- there should be ramifications though I don't think that he I think you should be gone regardless of whether he lied under -- so -- think even though not the standard.
I it's not completely clear to me up if what he was technically saying if he if he was just technically saying I signed this warrant.
But it was just to gather this information and then we would make you know a decision after that and that's difference I do is just not clear to me exactly technically how it at you played out.
Let me let me play from both of you and add those put out by the RNC get your reaction to this because as you put all these things together.
It's really -- -- look pretty bad I don't wanna ask do you think of us.
I first learned about it from the -- news reports that I think most people.
Learned about this I think it was on Friday what did you learn the same day the president -- from news reports are so no one of the Golan -- That's -- look at who was responsible I don't have an answer my that I don't remember being honest that -- not -- -- -- just don't remember him not.
And I'm not there.
-- go back.
-- the -- questions people what happened when do and -- that's the first we've heard of it and why they didn't I don't know if -- and the White House is aware that this happened on my watch.
I had you not accept responsibilities for all the actions but I did not know any of the details at that -- nobody's -- nobody's.
-- -- Or at least suggested.
I thought I would bet you were there I was there I've decided follow my counsel's advice and not testify or answer any of the questions today.
What David the conversation take place at the look -- -- that's what you've got no comment Qaeda that try to find a moment do you have -- -- don't ship I don't know.
My first learned about it from certain sports and news report I have not done anything wrong.
What I continue to believe is that ultimately the -- stops we'll make I'm going to be accountable.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well it's important to note that.
Policy Ed noted that that -- college is not going to be seen by New York Times readers it's not going to be she could be seen by.
Most over cable news or any other perhaps cable news network -- certainly not the mainstream media.
So we have to understand that what we perceive as obvious and it is to me morally and politically obvious.
Is not necessarily just the case for the rest of the country.
The New York Times has essentially moved on the Los Angeles Times has moved on.
NBC ABC CBS have moved on and that's what they're hoping will take place remember the president has the entire media with him when the New York Times.
Revealed things about how or drones on about -- -- And and senator then senator Barack Cherry -- out of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee condemned the New York Times were terrible breach of security.
Nothing happened I care so we have to remember that what we understand it's true.
It's not being pervade its -- in the rest of the and the rest of the country appoint.
-- and I'll make politically I think that's what have an impact in terms of really getting up the base of the Republican Party and they could have an impact but they -- I think Dennis is right I don't think most liberals are democratic base voters are probably following it as closely.
All right guys thank you both appreciated and coming up next the architect Karl Rove was here --
