John Edwards blog: Fox Attacks

Update: From Michelle Malkin.
Who knew it would be Dennis Kucinich had the stuff.
“I’m prepared to discuss the war, health care, trade, or any other issue anytime, anywhere, with any audience, answering any question from any media. And any candidate who won’t shouldn’t be President of the United States.”
Amen sir.

From Drudge. Emphasis mine throughout.

Oh brother. What a PANTY WAIST this guy is!
Enough is enough. It's time to send a clear message to Fox News and their allies that their right-wing talking points and temper tantrums won't go unchallenged anymore - when it comes to what Democrats should do in the Democratic primary, we'll decide - no matter what they report:
OK, now that MY little "temper tantrum" is done, give me money....
And I return you to your regularly scheduled program, already in progress...
Fox News has already proven they have no intention of providing "fair and balanced" coverage of any Democrat in this election.
Predictably, he gives NO examples. When has Fox been anything but polite to Democrats?
In recent weeks they have run blatant lies about Senator Obama's background. And Fox was only too happy to give Ann Coulter a platform to spew more hate a few days after her bigoted attack on Senator Edwards and the gay community.
Again, predictably, he gives NO examples. What lies? Where are the links? Where is the defense of those lies?

And yet, now who is lying? COULTER: It isn't offensive to gays. It has nothing to do with gays. It's a schoolyard taunt, meaning wuss. And unless you're telling me that John Edwards is gay, it was not applied to a gay person.
Now it's time for Democrats to stand together and send a clear message to Roger Ailes, Fox News and all the rest of them: bias isn't balance, but turning tables is fair.
And all the rest of them? Who? What other sources are so unfair?
The truth is, Fox News can "report" whatever they want. And when it works for us, we'll deal with them on our terms. But this campaign is about responsibility and accountability, and we need to send the message to Fox that if they want to be the corporate mouthpiece of the Republican Party more than they want to be an impartial news outlet, they shouldn't expect Democrats to play along.
First of all, Brit Hume is a wonderful journalist. Probably the last one left. This is such an insult, and an insult to anyone who watches Fox. Fox posts the biggest audience in cable regularly, and this is just insulting. Fox viewers are not drones.

Doesn't it strike anyone a wee bit ironic that this man is talking about responsibility and accountability and yet hires the those hounds from hell to run his website?

They will deal with Fox on THEIR terms? Just what are those terms, sir? Again, empty words with no substance. And will you deal with our enemies by simply saying neener, neener, neener, and taking your marbles home to play, as you are now by not facing Fox? Oh what COURAGE, what STRENGTH you show.

An empty suit, this man.

Does anyone really think, that if he cannot handle the heat in the Fox kitchen, how will he handle Amadinnerjacket? Putin? Kim Jong Il? Assad? Hamas? Hezebollah?

Feh. The Panty Waist and the Pant Suit. Sounds like a sitcom to me. What a bunch of morons are running for President.
