Like the comment on the bottom, "I am embarrassed that he's my President".

Obama wrote:If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you'll see more of them doing it.

He's not being clear here. The ones that are supposedly "punished" are the ones who buy into selling out the party and its ideology, for good or bad. For example, if they vote yes on amnesty for illegals, then they should be "punished" by non-stop coverage on the conservative media.

How, exactly, will Obama achieve changing that incentive structure, exactly? Fox News and Rush Limbaugh are a free press. But according to Obama, that media must apparently be curbed. The media on the left, however, need not be curbed, because “more left-leaning media outlets recognize that compromise is not a dirty word.”

This article is misleading because I didn't specifically see where Obama wanted to "curb" the conservative media. Changing the "incentive structures" doesn't equate curbing FNC or Limbaugh. If he actually did try, the backlash would sink him.

Well it is a bit vague, but Greta Van Susteren felt compelled to write this in her blog the next day:

She has a point.

FNC was just talking about this, Brett Baer and Brit Hume were discussing Obama and FNC.
