b/c Faux News/Fox Noise is the outlet that ran the fake "Obama's A Terrorist" story.

I wouldn't participate with them either...

I agree. I like this one

So I guess the Democrats are afraid of big bad FOX News ? Yet these pansies want to be the leader of the free world ! One would think that if they haven't the backbone to face whatever fear they think Fox News reporters or commentators may represent in the form of a question they are not ready to face the actions or words of leaders from Iran, North Korea or China to name a few.

If I was running for prez, I would participate with any major news organization. The publicity for one, and now they just look scared. I would do it just to show that I wasn't intimidated by any news organization no matter what bias they take.

Sorry...I can take a lot of [censored], but when a "news" outlet starts spreading rumors that I was brought up in a terrorist school, then they don't get anything from me...

besides...you know how many votes Obama just picked up from the left in the primary by saying, "Screw you Fox News!" ?

I'm not saying that...but CNN/MSNBC hasn't run a story, without it being substantiated, that Romney is a polygamist or that Gingrich is a member of the KKK.

Fox has run smear stories about Obama...

If that were the case Neo, wouldn't he want to show what he is all about on this station? It is a debate, after all, cosponsored by the CBC-not a one on one with O'Reilly...Perhaps he would pick up some votes on the other side?

Maybe Sox...I dunno...I don't work for the campaign, I can't speak for them...

But if I had my character attacked by a "news" organization, I wouldn't be too warm to the idea of working with them...

Running from FOX tells me he is scared-as kms said, any additional national exposure only helps him. I think it being cosponsored by the CBC makes it worse. FOX is a news organization-you don't agree with it, doesn't mean it isn't news.

Sox...you're right...I don't agree with it...but they never apologized for the false story on Obama...even after it was discreditted by CNN...

the decision is left up to Obama, and I stand by him on it.

And that, boys and girls, is what this is all about - nothing more. The lefties hate Fox; Edwards made a lot of headway among them by pulling this same trick; Obama is now showing what a statesman he is by copying it.

I'm all for him saying the heck with them. Now, will he say the same to the other major outlets?

I'd vote for a candidate who said enough biased press!

My understanding is that Fox reported that an opinion magazine said the Hillary campaign was spreading a story that Obama attended a Madrassa. Observations:

1. Is it now a "Known Fact" (tm) that everyone who attends a Madrassa (lit., "school" in Arabic) is a terrorist? Wow, how open-minded.

2. Are you really going to set yourself up like this? You mean that if I can show any instance where CNN has reported that a liberal group said this or that about a conservative - and this or that was questionable - that would be reason enough for Republicans to start boycotting CNN?

3. Even if the story is completely bogus (the school shouldn't be considered a madrassa, and no one in Hillary's campaign was circulating it), and even if Fox shouldn't have reported that it was out there, is the "answer" to boycott them? Should Republicans have boycotted CBS after Rathergate?
