White House and Fox News

Bush's Press Secretary Scott McClellan was asked this: "With respect, who made you the editor of Newsweek? Do you think it's appropriate for you, at that podium, speaking with the authority of the President of the United States, to tell an American magazine what they should print?"

I'm not sure if Obama is focusing on controlling Fox News or instructing his more friendly media to ignore their lead. While I don't think either will work I think they can succeed in shaping the Narrative to portray Fox as irrelevant among those who don't follow the news closely and especially with young voters.

If Obama succeeds, the Narrative can be an even more useful tool come election time. It still only goes so far though.
