Yesterday on ABC’s “This Week,” George Stephanopoulos and his roundtable discussed the relationship between President Obama and Fox News in light of comments the President made to CNBC’s John Harwood in an interview last week.

Stephanopoulos: You know, George, I’ve always been struck by how — and it’s not too strong a word — how obsessed the President and the White House are with Fox News.

George Will: Well, it’s the discordant note in an otherwise harmonious chorus, I suppose that’s why. But three great love affairs in world history are Abelard and Heloise, Romeo and Juliet, and the American media and this president at the moment. But this doesn’t matter over time. Reality will impinge. If his programs work, he’s fine. If it doesn’t work, all the adulation of journalists in the world won’t help.
