Anita Dunn: We Control the Media

YouTube is a wonderful thing.

ANITA DUNN, White House Communications Director: Thanks to YouTube, anything you, we tell people, anything you say you should expect to see on YouTube.

Here's Anita Dunn on YouTube:



Dunn brags that the Obama campaign controlled the media rather than allowing the press to determine the narrative.

Transcript

DUNN: So it was very much we controlled it, as opposed to the press controlled it. And it did not always make us popular with the press. But we increasingly by the general election very rarely did we communicate through the press anything that we didn't absolutely control.

That certainly explains why the Obama White House is so hostile toward FOX News.

A news outlet that challenges Obama, asks probing questions, and serves as a watchdog for the administration, like FOX, is not in line with Dunn and the master plan to control.

FOX News doesn't reflexively tow the Obama party line like CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, and MSNBC.

As a result, the White House is waging war on FOX, attempting to discredit the network.

I don't think it's working.

Let's see,it's fair for five out of six networks to be the mouth-pieces for the White House, but not fair for one network, Fox to be the mouth-piece of the Republican party?
