"Whatever else is true, Fox has taken on a political role that is very rare, at least in modern times, for a large American news organization. Its news coverage is not merely biased or opinionated; there'd be nothing unusual about that. Instead, it is a major participant - the leading participant - in organizing, promoting and fueling protests, including street protests, against the government. Fox has undertaken a role typically played by media outlets in, say, Venezuela or various unstable, under-developed countries - sponsoring rather than reporting on protests against the government - and it is difficult to recall any recent example that is similar. Fox has every right to do that, but the pretense that it is a news organization is ludicrous - transparently so - and there isn't anything remotely wrong with the Obama White House saying so."
