The Obama administration has an OODA loop somwwhat larger than Lake Michiagan.   Wenn the Obama adminstration smear Rush Limbagh, did Limbaugh bet mad?   No,  Limbaugh got even.   Limbaugh has Al Sharpton theatening to sue for libel.

In contrast, the Obama adminstration has declared oeen war on Fox News and is losing.    Even the New York Times  has noticed and disapproves,  David Carr, NYT:

The one weapon all administrations can wield is access, and the White House, making it clear that it will use that leverage going forward, informed Fox News not to expect to bump knees with the president until 2010. But Fox News, as many have pointed out, is not in the access business. They are in the agitation business. And the administration, by deploying official resources against a troublesome media organization, seems to have brought a knife to a gunfight.

The White House can not wage war on a media organization and hope to win.    The act of using state rescources to besmerch a private organization, both demeans the White House and elevates Fox News.
