Fox News host Greta van Susteren isn't taking lightly criticism from President Obama that her news network — along with conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh — is failing America by questioning his policies.
In an interview with the left-leaning magazine The New Republic, Mr. Obama faulted Rush Limbaugh and Fox News for punishing Republican members of Congress for "working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest."
Ms. van Susteren blasted back: "Apparently, President Obama wants his usual media pass and Fox challenges his policies — which happens to be the media's job," she wrote.
Moreover, she wrote, some Democrats actually take heat from party leadership for appearing on Fox News.
"Brace yourself for this one! Some Democrats have told me that they want to come on Fox to discuss issues, but they get heat from their leadership for appearing on Fox. Does President Obama know that? So which party is intimidating its members?" she wrote.
Ms. van Susteren also contested the viewpoint that Democrats — and only Democrats — want to compromise.
"To say, Senator Harry Reid is willing to compromise is just wrong," she wrote. "He has not allowed a budget to get to the Senate floor for years to even begin a discussion."
