Chris Wallace still whining about Obama snubbing Fox, yet calls White House "thinned skinned".

I find it hysterical that Fox News can be so one sided and then express astonishment that Obama is not rushing to give credence their Pravda-like propaganda machine.

The White House could not have made their contempt for this "news" organisation more clear:

We figured Fox would rather show "So You Think You Can Dance" rather than broadcast an honest discussion about health insurance reform. Fox is an ideological outlet where the president has been interviewed before and will likely be interviewed again, not that the whining particularly strengthens the case for participation any time soon.
The Obama administration are calling them what they are: an ideological outlet. They are still allowing Beck on air, without even asking him to withdraw his outrageous claim that the president is "a racist". And now they are bemoaning the fact that he refuses to accord them the status of a proper news organisation? Please.....

You can't pump out outrageous propaganda 7 days a week and then suddenly demand that everyone treats you as if you are not the broadcasting wing of the Republican party.

There was a reason why Dick Cheney preferred Fox. Indeed, it was practically the only network he would ever agree to be interviewed by. This was because when Cheney was on Fox he was guaranteed to be asked only softball questions.
When it comes to Cheney, one of the most incompetent vice-presidents in the country's history, with a record of two grotesquely botched wars, war crimes and a crippling debt, Chris Wallace sounds like a teenage girl interviewing the Jonas Brothers.
Having enjoyed such exclusive access to a Republican Vice President, it seems churlish for Fox to now complain that other networks are enjoying an access to Obama which they are not.
