The briefing room's main TV's are tuned to the top-rated cable news channel. Trouble is, that's the dreaded Fox News Channel that Obama aides including David Axelrod so weirdly picked a fight with last fall, castigating it as an alleged broadcast arm of the party of Abraham Lincoln, who never even owned a TV.
The public criticism of Fox no doubt went down well with the Democratic party's left for a few days. But it also backfired, boosting Fox's ratings, causing more people to watch as in: "Don't look over there, folks! That woman has no clothes on."
And those ratings ultimately showed that something on the order of a third of that network's viewers are, like Atty. Gen. Holder, Democrats who clearly want fair and balanced news.
You just can't make this stuff up. LOL
