FLASHBACK: When Fox News boasted about its “unprecedented” access to the Bush White House

Suddenly ABC News has become “state controlled” media because it's working closely with the Obama White House on a primetime program. At least that's how Michelle Malkin and her friends explain the world to their outraged readers.

So if ABC News is now government controlled, what did that make Fox News in 2008? [Emphasis added]

FOX News' Bret Baier was granted unprecedented access by George W. Bush as the president begins the final year of his extraordinarily consequential tenure.

This historic documentary - shot in high definition - takes you inside the Oval Office, to the president's Texas ranch, aboard Air Force One and into his private sanctums in the White House residence.

You get the idea.
