    WHITE HOUSE BOASTS: WE CONTROL NEWS MEDIA

    President Obama's presidential campaign focused on "making" the news media cover certain issues while rarely communicating anything to the press unless it was "controlled," White House Communications Director Anita Dunn disclosed to the Dominican government at a videotaped conference.

    "Very rarely did we communicate through the press anything that we didn't absolutely control," said Dunn.

    "One of the reasons we did so many of the David Plouffe videos was not just for our supporters, but also because it was a way for us to get our message out without having to actually talk to reporters," said Dunn, referring to Plouffe, who was Obama's chief campaign manager.

    "We just put that out there and made them write what Plouffe had said as opposed to Plouffe doing an interview with a reporter. So it was very much we controlled it as opposed to the press controlled it," Dunn said.

    Continued Dunn: "Whether it was a David Plouffe video or an Obama speech, a huge part of our press strategy was focused on making the media cover what Obama was actually saying as opposed to why the campaign was saying it, what the tactic was. Making the press cover what we were saying."
    White House boasts: We 'control' news media

    maybe others have attempted the same, but none has ever been so dumb as to SAY it

    she'd never admit this in front of an americian audience

    no wonder the media are turning

    the arrogance is exceeded only by the stupidity

    How can you take back such an admission of media manipulation? Sounds like the balloon boy saying, we did it for the show.

    When a war or conflict is going on Fox will be right on the front lines. For this they are the best!
    -
    Everything else they do amounts to a wheelbarrow of ****!
    -
    So the final conclusion equals:
    FOX SUCKS!!!!

    Calling Fox News "a wing of the Republican Party," the Obama administration on Sunday escalated its war of words against the channel, even as observers questioned the wisdom of a White House war on a news organization.

    "What I think is fair to say about Fox -- and certainly it's the way we view it -- is that it really is more a wing of the Republican Party," said Anita Dunn, White House communications director, on CNN. "They take their talking points, put them on the air; take their opposition research, put them on the air. And that's fine. But let's not pretend they're a news network the way CNN is."

    Wow what a bunch of morons that are working in this White House, Mrs. Dunn calling Fox News a Wing of the Republican Party. so I expect her and the White House to actually show proof that Fox receeve's any form of money from the RNC.

    Got to love her comment "But let's not pretend they're a news network the way CNN is." Oh yea and CNN is such a Non Bias News Outlet hmmm. The real sad thing is this if you read the article allot of folks are questioning the White House on this.

    But the best part of the story is at the end when Mrs. Dunn say's that Mr. Obama may or may not go on Fox News. Well ain't that special hell if I ran Fox News the first thing I would do Tonight in Prime Time is call out Mr. Obama and this White House, I would invite him onto Fox News and if he didn't want to come I would call him on by accusing him and this White House of being Cowards.
    Wow big deal.

    Re: White House Escalates War of Words With Fox News

    she lists her two "favorite political philosophers," including Communist Chinese leader Mao Tse-tung, whose draconian policies are blamed for the deaths of tens of millions of people.
    She's all hot for Mousy-Dung.
    I wonder if she has the hots for Castro, L'il Kim, Pol Pot and Milosovic too?
    Perhaps she can go on Letterman and do her Top 10.
    There are so many twisted leaders, I'd watch to find out what other nut cases make her list.

    How long do we have to wait for a journalist to ask where The Obamer ranks in her list? Right up there with Mousy-Dung I suppose.

    Re: White House Escalates War of Words With Fox News

    Maybe this has been brought up...

    The White House stopped providing guests to 'Fox News Sunday' after Wallace fact-checked controversial assertions made by Tammy Duckworth, assistant secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, in August. Dunn said fact-checking an administration official was "something I've never seen a Sunday show do."

    "She criticized 'FOX News Sunday' last week for fact-checking -- fact-checking -- an administration official," Wallace said Sunday. "They didn't say that our fact-checking was wrong. They just said that we had dared to fact-check."

    "Let's fact-check Anita Dunn, because last Sunday she said that Fox ignores Republican scandals, and she specifically mentioned the scandal involving Nevada senator John Ensign," Wallace added. "A number of Fox News shows have run stories about Senator Ensign. Anita Dunn's facts were just plain wrong."

    Fox News senior vice president Michael Clemente said: "Surprisingly, the White House continues to declare war on a news organization instead of focusing on the critical issues that Americans are concerned about like jobs, health care and two wars. The door remains open and we welcome a discussion about the facts behind the issues."

    So... The Obama is throwing this little fit because FNC had the audacity to fact check?

    Someone correct me if I am wrong -- isn't that EXACTLY what a news organization is supposed to do?

    White House [continues to] Escalates War on Fox News

    White House Escalates War on Fox News - Political News - FOXNews.com

    White House Escalates War on Fox News
    Monday, October 19, 2009

    Senior Obama administration officials took to the airwaves Sunday to accuse Fox News of pushing a particular point of view and not being a real news network.

    White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel told CNN that President Obama does not want "the CNNs and the others in the world [to] basically be led in following Fox."

    Obama senior adviser David Axelrod went further by calling on media outlets to join the administration in declaring that Fox is "not a news organization."

    "Other news organizations like yours ought not to treat them that way," Axelrod counseled ABC's George Stephanopoulos. "We're not going to treat them that way."

    By urging other news outlets to side with the administration, Obama aides officials dramatically upped the ante in the war of words that began earlier this month, when White House communications director Anita Dunn branded Fox "opinion journalism masquerading as news."

    On Sunday, Fox's Chris Wallace retorted: "We wanted to ask Dunn about her criticism, but, as they've done every week since August, the White House refused to make any administration officials available to 'FOX News Sunday' to talk about this or anything else."

    The White House stopped providing guests to 'Fox News Sunday' after Wallace fact-checked controversial assertions made by Tammy Duckworth, assistant secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, in August. Dunn said fact-checking an administration official was "something I've never seen a Sunday show do."

    "She criticized 'FOX News Sunday' last week for fact-checking -- fact-checking -- an administration official," Wallace said Sunday. "They didn't say that our fact-checking was wrong. They just said that we had dared to fact-check."

    "Let's fact-check Anita Dunn, because last Sunday she said that Fox ignores Republican scandals, and she specifically mentioned the scandal involving Nevada senator John Ensign," Wallace added. "A number of Fox News shows have run stories about Senator Ensign. Anita Dunn's facts were just plain wrong."

    Fox News senior vice president Michael Clemente said: "Surprisingly, the White House continues to declare war on a news organization instead of focusing on the critical issues that Americans are concerned about like jobs, health care and two wars. The door remains open and we welcome a discussion about the facts behind the issues."
    So...
    FNC has the audacity to fact-check statements from The Obama's administration... and The Obama reacts by not making administration officials available to FNC -- and then follows up by 'encouraging' other news organization from 'following' FNC.

    Is that a threat?

    Wow. Just wow.

    Correct me if I am wrong -- isnt "fact checking" the very thing a news organization is SUPPOSED to do?

    No a news source is supposed to be the mouthpiece of the Obama administration. FOX obviously did not get the memo.
