    I don't think Fox is blaming him for this. However, I can rephrase and say "agenda driven media sources such as ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, MSNBC, CNN, the NYT, Wash Po., LA Times, St. Petersburg Times, and NPR" if you need them defined.

    Fox is very agenda driven. So again, we can expect you not to post daily about this right?

    Can you provide an example of when Fox blamed gas prices on Obama?

    Yes.

    But I would first ask you what the definition of blame is that you are using. Must an actual employee of the news organization specifically blame Obama? Can it be someone who is a guest on a show on that network? Do op-ed pieces count? Etc.

    Yes.

    But I would first ask you what the definition of "on" is that you are using. Must an actual employee of the news organization specifically use the word "on?" Can it be someone who is a guest "on" a show "on" that network? Do op-ed pieces count? Etc.

    I don't like using "LOL" but this post made me laugh audibly.

    Yep, those articles are definitely out there. I saw some myself. However, I also read an analysis that compared similar rises in gas prices under Bush and Obama. It found that there were 4 times as many stories about rising gas prices under Bush.

    Basically, the media seemed to be much more concerned about rising gas prices under Bush than they are now. Why do you think that is?

    Posting daily until I hear a story from the AP or other mainstream source that blames the Obama admin for the gas prices.

    1. The economy was crashing
    2. We have become accustomed to higher gas prices/it's not a great shock that gas is going up it's done it EVERY year now for a while at this same exact time of the year
    3. It was at the end of Bush's term
    4. It was an election year
    5. If it climbs up above the $4 range and flirts with the $5 range you're going to see Obama get called out

    I know this doesn't match with your "ITS A MEDIA CONSPIRACY I TELL YA!" type of theory, but there are plenty of practical reasons why.

    You have to love that sonuv, don't you?

    To give you a straight answer, for me, if the topic/segment was gas prices adn who's to blame and a guest or host blamed obama without allowing a counter point it might be fair to say Fox blamed obama.

    Filled up for $3.34 in mid-Missouri today. Glad I got 41+ mpg on my previous tank of gas.

    I think the overall point of the thread was that BRR would like to see the media be consistent in their treatment of presidents. President Obama has taken far less of a beating than his predecessor when it comes to high gas prices.
    And why do you think that is?

    A. Gas is still just $3.52, not the high $4's we say before
    B. Bush was tight with Big Oil and people thought his administration was doing them favors.
    C. Iran is thinking of closing the Straight so there is speculation of supply problems.
    D. High gas prices is not something that is seen as political payoff from the Obama WH.
    E. All of the above

    And you think this is a good thing?

    Second, the leftists were all about blaming Bush for high gas prices, claiming it was payola to his big oil buddies. What I want to hear now from leftists is that it is free markets setting the price and admit they were doing nothing but attempting to demonize Bush for political reasons. But libs can never be honest. That is not in their nature. It is their nature to deceive. And I can think of another word that starts with "demo" who's practice is first to deceive.
    First of all, how WOULD you like me to chop your posts?
    First off,chop my part -- makes sense, bother.
    Second, you figured it all out.

    It is Obama's fault. He is making gas prices go up to benefit all his buddies in Big Oil. Let's be honest, Obama's cash base is basically the oil rich state of Texas and he is doing this just for political reasons.

    Makes plenty of sense to me.

    Ha, sort of. Honda Civic. I have a 30 mile drive on a rural highway to and from work. There's few hills, turns, and traffic. So I drive 55-60mph the entire way.
