THE VERBAL STUMBLING between Chief Justice John Roberts and now-president Barack Obama during the swearing-in ceremony caused a minor controversy.
The folks at Fox News questioned whether Obama was actually the president because he did not say the exact words as prescribed by law.
On Wednesday, about 36 hours after becoming president, Obama and Roberts again performed the oath so as to avoid further controversy.
Was Fox News acting in a biased, partisan manner when they questioned Obama's legitimacy as president? Or were they serving the role of government watchdog, acting on behalf of the citizens?
