More bad news for Fox News ... sort of.
Oct. 28, 2009 12:43 PM. This just in from Speaker of the House Pelosi.
In an interview with MSNBC's Keith Olberman last night, Nancy Pelosi announced that she would move to bring a vote to the floor of The House of Representatives as early as next week to ban Fox from covering Congress. "That Fox regularly grants access to Republican Congressman to spread their lies and propaganda on their airwaves is a violation of the public trust, and their continued desire to challenge such well documented facts as Global Warming, and the efficacy of single payer health insurance, proves that they are simply doing the work of the special interests. They should thus be stripped of their journalistic access in the halls of Congress," argued Pelosi.
Nov. 15, 2009 12:43 PM. This just in from White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.
Responding to rumors that Fox News will be cut from the annual White House Turkey pardoning ceremony press pool, White House Press Secretary confirmed the story in an exclusive with The Huffington Post. "Look, turkeys and Foxes just don't get along, and for the sake of the freed birds, we thought it best not to include a news organization with the word Fox in it," noted Gibbs. "On a more serious note, allowing Fox to join the press pool even for something so frivolous as the turkey pardon confers a certain legitimacy to what we all know is an illegitimate news organization," added Gibbs.

Mayor Adrian Fenty has given The Fox News Washington DC bureau 48 hours to clear out of its offices on 400 North Capitol Street, or face fines and arrests. "Fox News doesn't belong in this town given its inherent desire to question government's motive and intentions at every turn. Jobs and budgets are on the line, and I am compelled to invoke local police powers to eliminate a public hazard from our good city," wrote Fenty on today's Daily Kos. "They should set up shop somewhere where people believe what they believe, like somewhere in Texas."

White House Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra and Google CEO Eric Schmidt announced today that Fox News has been prohibited from using the internet to disseminate its service. "The most basic right of any American is to protect its citizenry from false and malicious lies that can undermine the efforts of our President and his ambitious public works program," noted Chopra in an exclusive interview with CBS's Katie Couric. "Our research has proven that Fox News is an arm of the oil, health care, and financial industry lobbyists," Eric Schmidt told Couric. "The Internet is the people's medium, not the powerful," added the billionaire CEO, whose Googleplex in Mountain View California employs nearly 20,000 people.

"That we got booted from Washington DC has only made us better, and more in touch with the average American viewer," added Ailes from his network office in Ft. Worth, Texas.
