Obama Spokesman 1, FOX News 0

The Obama campaign has made their contempt for FOX News pretty clear lately and you can add Bill Burton's appearance on the network yesterday to the list. Burton squared off with Megyn Kelly after he released the following statement after the network ran with the Drudge-fueled smear of the day.

"This is a fake news controversy drummed up b the all too common alliance of Fox News, the Drudge Report and John McCain, who apparently decided to close out his campaign with the same false, desperate attacks that have failed for months. In this seven year old interview, Senator Obama did not say that the courts should get into the business of redistributing wealth at all. Americans know that the real choice in this election is between four more years of Bush-McCain policies that redistribute billions to billionaires and big corporations and Barack Obama's plan to help the middle class by giving tax relief to 95% of workers and companies that create new jobs here in America. That's the change we need, and no amount of eleventh-hour distractions from the McCain campaign will change that."

Like Oliver Willis says, if this is a prelude to how an Obama administration would handle FOX, it's gonna be a fun four years. I can't wait.
