"Fox News shut out at Obama press conferences."

Fishbowl DC notes that Fox News has not been allowed to ask a question at any of the four press conferences that Barack Obama has held since winning the election.


Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs insists that there’s “nothing nefarious” going on. “I would tell them, get a good question and stay tuned,” Gibbs said of Fox News.


,The Washington Times reports that Obama has granted “an unprecedented bit of access for reporters who have grown accustomed to President Bush’s infrequent moments taking questions and already surpassing the last four presidents-in-waiting.”
