Watch out, everybody! The White House is “taking the gloves off” in its never-ending battle with…a cable news network?
The administration’s champion in this epic fight is White House Communications Director Anita Dunn, who unimaginatively communicated the conclusion below on this weekend’s broadcast of Reliable Sources:
“What I think is fair to say about Fox…is that it really is more of a wing of the Republican party…let’s not pretend they’re a news network the way CNN is…I’m talking about the overall programming.”
I suppose she says the above intending to discredit Fox, what with the decline of the GOP and all (a decline Obama is working hard to reverse); but mostly out of frustration with the Constitution’s Free Speech Clause, and the fact that Fox News is the most watched cable news network in America (even at 3AM, when Fox isn’t airing any news whatsoever, but their competition is).
That aside, what I think is safe to say about Dunn is that she is really more of an enabler of ACORN, and thus shouldn’t even be working in the White House or relied on by the American People to communicate anything. Why? Because the SEIU – which we could say is one and the same with ACORN – is a client of Squier Knapp Dunn Communications’, the PR firm Dunn co-owns:
And then there’s the question of what is Squier’s and – by extension – Dunn’s connection to Rod Blagojevich? But that’s for another post.
Dunn is right about one thing (even a broken clock…): Fox News is nothing like CNN. But that’s a feature, not a bug.
