In his Oct. 28 column, Cal Thomas compared the Obama administration's complaints about Fox News to "dictators who desire control over the flow of information in order to enhance their power." So, asked Jon Stewart of "The Daily Show," does that mean Thomas also objected when the Bush administration leveled similar complaints last year about MSNBC? No. Thomas groused in May 2008 that the Bush administration waited until its last year in office to criticize media coverage. "They should have taken on the media a lot sooner," Thomas said.
