White House Communications Director Anita Dunn recently told the New York Times that Team Obama is "going to treat them [them being Fox News] the way we would treat an opponent. As they [Fox News] are undertaking a war against Barack Obama and the White House, we don't need to pretend that this is the way that legitimate news organizations behave." Does Mrs. Dunn forget the mainstream media's treatment of President Bush? Has Mrs. Dunn tuned-In to MSNBC's Schultz, Olberman, or Maddow recently?
How interesting it is that the White House is so quick to declare war on Fox News while President Obama continues to drag his feet on whether to approve a surge of troops into Afghanistan? Of course, if the White House handles the "War on Fox" like they have the war against radical Islamic extremists in Afghanistan, Fox may be asked to work with the White House Communications Department sometime next week. Recall the reports that President Obama is open to the idea of having the Taliban involved in "Afghanistan's political future."
