Fox News Contributor and Democratic Strategist Kirsten Powers responds on FoxNews.com to President Obama‘s recent jab at the network:

Whether you are liberal or conservative, libertarian, moderate or politically agnostic, everyone should be concerned when leaders of our government believe they can intentionally try to delegitimize a news organization they don’t like.

In fact, if you are a liberal – as I am – you should be the most offended, as liberalism is founded on the idea of cherishing dissent and an inviolable right to freedom of expression.

That more liberals aren’t calling out the White House for this outrageous behavior tells you something about the state of liberalism in America today.

Obama said in a recent interview with The New Republic that elected Republicans are “punished” by Fox News when they act in a bipartisan way.
