Obama – Bring Me the Head of Rupert Murdock 8:30 A.M. Monday October 18th 2010

Valerie Jarrett, one of the President’s chief advisers and old friend of the family from Chicago, could hardly keep her feet propped on the top of the Resolution Desk in the Oval Office. It was early, too early for the President, so she used this precious time to act out her grandest fantasy, being President.

Three workmen were hanging the fourth Presidential flat screen TV on the wall while she fantasized of global power and having control of the American people. Deep down inside she knew she was a dictator who had the guts to crush any foe, foreign or domestic. She would run this show a lot differentially than Barry. Her idea of control was strict obedience or die, something the President was just a cheeseburger away from, in his governing according to her. Valerie knew that a takeover such as the one they were in you had to really stir the pot, to weed out the ones that would not conform. Her first order as Ms. President would be to jail the entire Tea Party, even if it took filling up every football stadium, such as what they did during the D.C. anti-war demonstrations in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s.

Out of the corner of her eye she saw him flash into to the room, “A-ha I caught ya,” the President said, chuckling at his friend as she fell off his chair and on to the floor with a thud. “Oh, Mr. President, I was waiting for you, and I have something interesting to discuss with you,” as she dusted herself off from the grand fall that almost put another crack in her butt.

“Go ahead Valerie, I’ve got a busy day so we have to make it quick, what is it?” “It’s Fox, sir.” The happy mood of the President turned to gloom as his face tightened up with anger. “Okay, what have they said this time?” “Nothing sir, it’s what they’re doing.” “And what is it they’re doing?”

She went on to explain to the President that Fox, who is owned by News Corp, which Rupert Murdock the billionaire from Australia owns, was going to shut down the mainstream media. Murdock had been a major thorn in the Presidents side since he took office, criticizing just about everything he did. He even went as far as to say they weren’t a proper news agency. That attack last year got him into hot water from the rest of the media, even from the left.

This time it was obvious to Valerie that Murdock was in for the kill of the mainstream media, which was the darling of this President and it was mutual. The problem was that the branch of the media that backed his policies was sinking fast and bleeding red with every quarterly financial statement. They would all be out of business before his last days in office, as most of America was now watching Mr. Murdock’s Fox News Channel for reliable information. Reliable information was something the mainstream media was lacking, thus the decline.

Murdock targeted the New York television market as his first victim. It was simple math. If the vast majority was watching his channels he told the subscribing cable networks that if they wanted to carry his shows and its massive audience, they’d have to pony up a new fee that totaled the entire amount charged by all of the mainstream media. It came down to a dollar and cents issue, lose the audience or lose the mainstream media. This sent shivers up the President's spine because without them he was lost. Of course, he was already lost; he just didn’t know it yet as the 626th day of the Obama Presidency called the Attorney General to bring charges up on Murdock for extortion.
