(Newser) – Fox anchors Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly went on the attack last night against White House accusations that their network is heavily biased against the president. "They’re more worried about the war on Fox than the actual war in Afghanistan,” snorted Beck at the beginning of his show, pulling out some toy tanks and a map of Manhattan to make his point.

Bill O'Reilly accused the White House of viewing the media through the prism of NBC and CNN, which he said clearly favored Obama over John McCain last year. "There's no question that Fox News is tougher on the Obama administration than the other TV operations because we actually have some conservative commentators on this network," said O'Reilly.
