“Of course the Obama Administration is trying to punish Fox News Channel — I wasn’t born yesterday! Don’t believe me? Read this post and then tell me what you think,” Van Susteren titledthe blog post.

The Fox 10 p.m. host began the post quoting the New York Times: “At Fox News, there’s a palpable sense that the White House punishes the network for its coverage, not only by withholding the president, who has done interviews with every other major network, but even by denying them access to Michelle Obama.”

“I have no idea about access to Mrs. Obama or not,” said Van Susteren before adding that she does know that, when he was still a senator, Barack Obama appeared on her program and he “enjoyed” the experience. She added that the president has an outstanding offer to appear on On the Record, but that she understands he is not obliged to make an appearance due to other commitments.
