Keeping The Fox In The Pool

While today's media-White House wars aren't as fierce as in RN's day, Charles Krauthammer makes the important point that Fox News, its partisanship notwithstanding, has pushed legitimate stories that the mainstream media have neglected. And yet good for the MSM:
[T]he administration tried to make them complicit in an actual boycott of Fox. The Treasury Department made available Ken Feinberg, the executive pay czar, for interviews with the White House "pool" news organizations -- except Fox. The other networks admirably refused, saying they would not interview Feinberg unless Fox was permitted to as well. The administration backed down.
