The "Roundtable" of "This Week" discusses the White House's war with Fox News Channel.

Referring to comments made by White House Communications Director Anita Dunn, George Will says that Fox News might be "opinion journalism," but that also "describes The New York Times, and certainly MSNBC."

Will also tells George Stephanopoulos that there is "a bullying aspect" in the Obama administration's tactics toward the cable network.

Laura Ingraham pointed out that when "an esteemed journalist" in Charles Gibson had no clue about the ACORN scandal, there was "a collective gasp across the United States."

"Every administration tries to manipulate the news media," comments Cynthia Tucker, before giving an example from the Bush administration propping other journalists.

Says Bloomberg's Al Hunt: "I must say I'm amused that Karl Rove is shocked that they would go after the press."
