Obama Aide Dunn Admits Media Is Ally

Gee, I’m sure she’s a nice person. But openly admitting that the Obama White House views the mainstream liberal media as a political ally is perhaps not the smartest way to go for Obama communications director Anita Dunn.

Says Dunn in the New York Times:

“We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent,” said Anita Dunn, the White House communications director, in a telephone interview on Sunday. “As they 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.”

So, perforce, if Fox is “an opponent,” this means the rest of the so-called “mainstream media” is, in the eyes of Dunn and the Obama White House, the opposite. To wit: a supporter. An ally.


Give Ms. Dunn points for honesty. Or at least unintentioned candor.
