The White House attack on Fox News

In the latest attacks on Fox News by the White House, communications director Anita Dunn (pictured) has been sent to do the dirty work.

If the White House war with Fox goes badly, the White House, communications director will take the fall and leave the other White House aides unscathed.

A report in the Washington Post (see link below) says “she alone can withstand the blowback.”

During her appearance on CNN Sunday she attacked Fox News as "a wing of the Republican Party."

The obvious counter-point is CNN, and MSNBC make up a wing of the Democratic Party. In fact, CNN was often referred to as the “Clinton News Network” during the 1990’s

The White House Vs. Fox News squabble will only serve to diminish the status of the White House and increase the viewership of Fox News.
