Default eff yeah!

saw these 2 articles on digg and i thought i would share. we MIGHT just get back into good standing with the rest of the world again.

Fox News Cut Out From Questions At Obama's First Press Conference
Fox News Cut Out From Questions At Obama's First Press Conference
Obama gives fox news the big "F YOU". not too many specifics but anytime faux news gets the shaft, score one for the good guys.

Obama Positioned to Quickly Reverse Bush Actions
Obama Positioned to Quickly Reverse Bush Actions - washingtonpost.com
its no secret that he will have his work cut out for him. and as the article stated these changes arent going to happen overnight but it seems to me that he is on the right track.

Nice, love to see Fox get punched in the sack. Fox would definitely be on the "failure of the media" list in the reporting of the Iraq. Not to mention that watching the sensationalist BS that constantly gets spewed on that show makes my eyes bleed.

Can't wait to see which orders he changes/drops/keeps, especially some of the broader reaching one's like wire-tapping. I think it would say something if he changed ones that would directly take away from his power as President.

Looks hopeful for stem cell researchers as well, someone needs to stand up to the religious right so that people can start benefiting from the amazing possibilities instead of being denied a treatment because of some other person's beliefs about Santa.

i agree with MPD, FOX ought to be judged by those who indulge them; ie their customers and advertisers.

their predisposition to sensationalise and 'never let the facts get in the way of a good story' are already well known. perhaps obama wished for them to 'get a clue' that he is less willing to tolerate such comic book journalism? but frankly FOX is more than capable of being their own worst enemy.

otherwise, yay for stem cells..... they have already started to grow brain cells from such embryonic donantions over here in euroland. the possibilities are virtually without limit!
