Organizers of the annual convention of leftist bloggers, Netroots Nation, decided that any reporter from Fox News coming to cover the event would not be given ordinary press credentials, but would have to wear a tag reading: Opinion Media. Fox News would be the only media organization forced to do so since the netroots are determined to believe that Fox is totally unfair.
Maybe they missed Hillary Clinton and some of her campaign people come right out and say that Fox was the only news outlet which was fair during the primaries.
Anyway, this line really made me laugh out loud this morning: "The idea to label Fox journalists as opinion media is, in fact, not a new one. It’s been tossed around on blogs, and MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann also mentioned the idea on his show last summer."
Keith Olbermann? Hahahahaha. Sorry. No one is more of an opinionated media than Keith. It's just that the netroots like his opinion.
Does Fox care? A spokesman called the credentials affair a "moot point" since they would not be sending anyone to cover the Houston convention this weekend anyway.
