I knew this would happen, and I knew Fox News would be the network to take a brave stand against Messiah Barack Obama.

The networks have been fuming at Obama's frequent scheduling interruptions which end up costing the networks millions in lost revenue.

This is the first time a major news network has refused a presidential request to pre-empt airtime since Obama was elected.

The Fox network is sticking with its regular schedule over President Barack Obama this week.

The network is turning down the president's request to show his prime-time news conference on Wednesday. The news conference marks Obama's 100th day in office. Instead of the president, Fox viewers will see an episode of the Tim Roth drama "Lie to Me."

It's the first time a broadcast network has refused Obama's request. This will be the third prime-time news conference in Obama's presidency. ABC, CBS and NBC are airing it. [LINK]

    IT'S FOX NEWS ARE YOU SURPRISED?

  • buddapecan

    At least something entertaining will be on while he's talking about a whole bunch of nothing. :-) My question...what is he planning on talking about now?

  • SunnyPA

    He's trying for a weekly series in the fall line-up.

    Gotta love this headline...
    Obama Supporters, Going From 'Fired Up' to Tired Out

  • luvly1957

    Like that show has high ratings, for that matter like FOX has high ratings!!!!

    ^^^^^ @ luvly1957: Fox News is ranked #1.

  • Daisy

    ^I dont think they were talking about Fox news but the Fox network that has programming. Back to Fox news being #1 who cares all their viewers still couldnt get McCain/Palin elected..lol You can have Hannity and Bill O. I didn't care for them before Pres Obama and ain't checking for them now.

  • SunnyPA

    Fox News Channel is ranked #1 and is showing the news conference. Fox TV channel is showing "lie to me" which does have weak ratings. Doesn't "American Idol" unusally come on at that time?

  • SunnyPA

    To each their own...
    I love Fox News and CNN Lou Dobbs. Watched them before obama and continue to do so. Both very informative.

    In addition, the white house press people and politicians don't hesitate to go on Fox News knowing that their rated #1.

    Republicans were divided with McCain. Everyone knows that McCain is really a democrat at heart.

    Cheney has a higher approval rating than Biden

    Ooops, Good Morning Everyone

    Fox News and the Fox Business channel will be airing the Obama news conference. It is the Fox Network channel that will not interrupt its regulary scheduled programming, like the CW, to run the news conference.. I like the show "Lie to Me", so I will gladly watch that instead, or The Reaper on the CW, or my DVR of Judge Joe Brown or last night's episode of CSI..

    GM all, Hey Daisy!

    Oh and fox sucks...

  • Daisy

    Hey KC

    I don't care for Lou Dobbs either. Was so glad when the President called him out..lol Lou rants and raves about immigration day in and day out. Shut up already! Until somebody comes up with a way to remove 12-20 million illegals I don't want to hear a temper tanturm every day. Might as well come up with a plan to make them legal cause they are NOT going back cross the border you can cancel Christmas on that one.

  • SunnyPA

    @Daisy... LOL, I can't disagree with you on that.

  • anti-PC

    All of the networks will be airing the TV show 'Lie to Me' whether they know it or not.

    The only differnce is Obama will be the liar on all those other channels!
