But Media Matters points out that Obama has held two full press conferences this year, one on February 9 and another on April 13, where he answered questions from the media. He has also had numerous other press availabilities.
What makes this hypocritical is that Fox News declined to cover the press conference back in July 2009, in a spat because Obama didn’t call on their reporter in a previous news conference. Fox was the first broadcast network to ever refuse to cover a presidential press conference. They showed “So You Think You Can Dance” instead. They also refused to cover the one in April 2010.
But never content to be merely hypocritical, starting in July 2009, in at least six separate programs, Fox News accused Obama of being overexposed because he was appearing on TV too often.
So which is it? Is Obama hiding from the media, or is he overexposed? I do have to admit that it is truly remarkable how Fox News manages to attack Obama, no matter what he does.
