Obama Advisor On Blackballing Fox But Not MSNBC

Embedded below is a revealing 2 minute clip from CNN yesterday wherein Senior White House Advisor Valerie Jarrett inelegantly (and unconvincingly) discusses the Obama administration's recent decision to "black ball" Fox News. To her credit, CNN's Campbell Brown presses Jarrett on the hypocrisy of that move, while taking no similar action against MSNBC. Here's a couple of sentences from this clip:

Brown: "So do you think Fox News is biased?"
Jarrett: "Well of course they're biased. Of course they are. Hah hah!"
Brown: "Do you also think that MSNBC is biased?"
Jarrett: "Well you know what, this is the thing: I don't, actually, I don't want to just generalize that all of Fox is biased, or that all of another station is biased...."

Wow. "The audacity of hope" indeed. With emphasis on the audacity.
