Juan Williams Decries 'High Tide' of Media 'Kowtowing' to Obama

The media are so far into the tank for President Obama that even the fairly liberal Juan Williams decried:
We are going towards a weekend of high tide for kowtowing to the Obama administration. He's all over CBS this weekend and then he's going to be all over ABC. I don't know what's going on with big media in this country.The brief assessment from Williams, a news analyst for NPR and former Washington Post reporter, came in response to Chris Wallace's request for ten-second "lightning round" offerings at the end of Friday's Special Report with Bret Baier on FNC.
Williams was referring to how CBS's Sunday Morning will be centered on Harry Smith's Father's Day discussions with Obama and "Obama's role as First Dad," with more of the interview to air on Monday's Early Show; while ABC News will spend Wednesday broadcasting from the White House, culminating in a prime time special, "Questions for the President: Prescription for America."
