Who's Behind the White House War on Fox News?
Townhall.com ^ | October 14, 2009 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 10/14/2009 4:29:10 AM PDT by Kaslin

White House interim communications director Anita Dunn assumed the role of lead Fox News Channel-basher this weekend. The attack was a dud. The left-leaning Nation magazine ridiculed President Obama's press shop for turning him into the "whiner-in-chief." AOL media columnist Jeff Bercovici called the war on Fox a "loser's strategy" that "signals weakness." And that's the friendly fire.

Dunn found refuge in rival CNN's green zone, where she blasted Fox News as a "research arm of the Republican Party." Unhappy with headline-generating Fox News hosts who have wrested control of the news cycle from Team Obama, Dunn complained about "opinion journalism masquerading as news."

Well, that is certainly an apt description of an Obama-sympathizing "news" segment on "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer," which purported to "fact check" a Saturday Night Live skit mocking the president's lack of accomplishments.

Yes, the "real" news fact-checked the fake news to cover for Obama's deficiencies. Zero complaints from the White House communications office about that. Or about authentic CNN journalist Anderson Cooper using his prime-time show to make vulgar sexual jokes about Tea Party activists. Or about the joint White House-ABC News health care reform infomercial that aired earlier this summer.

Some "opinion journalism" is more equal than others.

Debates about the blurred lines between opinion and journalism are all well and good. But don't the talking-points crafters in the Oval Office have something better to do than carp about the talking points they don't like hearing on the one cable network that hasn't been completely overrun by Obama sycophants? (Full disclosure: I've been a Fox News contributor since 2001.)

Where are the seasoned press gurus to help Nobel Peace Prize-winner Barack Obama appear more presidential and less petty and thuggish?

The corruptocratic affiliations of Obama's communications team are illuminating. His press shop can't rise above the fray because they've been entrenched in the Beltway fray for years. They can't help themselves.

Democratic media consultant Dunn's claim to fame is her decade-long service as chief strategist for disgraced Democrat and former Senate Majority Leader turned health care lobbyist Tom Daschle. She was in the thick of his failed re-election campaign as Daschle asserted a bogus property-tax homestead exemption claim on his $1.9 million D.C. mansion -- which he listed as his primary residence despite voting in South Dakota and claiming it as his primary residence in order to run for re-election. And Dunn was with Daschle during the years he failed to pay gobs of taxes on a luxury car and driver provided to him by crony donor Leo Hindery Jr.

After working as communications manager for Obama's political action committee and then as senior adviser to his 2008 presidential campaign, Dunn "trained" White House press secretary and anti-Fox sniper Robert Gibbs. Deputy communications director Dan Pfeiffer is another young protege of Dunn's, who worked with her on the disastrous 2004 Daschle re-election campaign.

(Another Daschle connection: Obama transition adviser John Podesta, who served as Daschle's counselor and has helped staff the administration with many alumni of his left-wing think tank, the Center for American Progress. One CAP fellow, Hugo Chavez-admiring radical Mark Lloyd, has attacked conservative talk radio -- the second home of several Fox News hosts -- and is now the FCC's "Diversity Czar.")

Dunn is married to Robert Bauer, a Washington, D.C., corporate lawyer who served as general counsel for Obama for America. It was Bauer who lobbied the Justice Department unsuccessfully last fall to pursue a criminal probe of American Issues Project (AIP), an independent group that sought to run an ad spotlighting Obama's ties to Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers.

It was Bauer who attempted to sic the DOJ on GOP donor Harold Simmons and sought his prosecution for funding the ad. It was Bauer who tried to bully television stations across the country to compel them to pull the spot. All on Obama's behalf.

While conservatives revel in the left's hysteria over Fox News Channel's dominance, more of Obama's friends hope he'll wipe his nose and man up. Fat chance. As long as he's surrounded by career flacks who demonize dissent to distract from the Beltway stench, the White House will remain an all-whine zone.

“Who’s Behind the White House War on Fox News?”

Answer: anyone within spitting distance of Obama. Obama is surrounded by lackeys who dare not disrespect him. Although Rahm and Axelrod are probably primary suspects.

And White House comm director Anita Dunn is about as believable and attractive as Madeleine Albright.

The WH, in its limitless naivete, doesn't seem to understand that the role of the media is to serve as a counter balance to government (and other) power influences.

Citizens want the news behind the news...the real scoop, not just the manipulated facade produced by those in power.

As many have noticed, the WH has an infantile sensitivity to any criticism...but such criticism and the critical analysis that produces it is what the public is willing to pay for.

Fawning applause of the WH just isn't newsworthy (the Fringe Media is learning). The public is only willing to pay for cutting edge stuff (as Beck has learned).

Bottom line: of course the WH hates the press (that's always the case).

Message to the WH: grow up and get it over it!

The Extreme Makeover of Fox News: Analyst Marc Lamont Hill [far left radical]
Accuracy In Media - AIM Column ^ | October 2, 2009 | Cliff Kincaid

Posted on Saturday, October 03, 2009 9:59:20 PM by ETL

Who would plaster his Twitter page with police mug shot photos of convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur? Fox News contributor Marc Lamont Hill did. At least until David Horowitz and Accuracy in Media took notice and wrote about it. Now the page features photos of boxing great Muhammad Ali. Hill's MySpace page is also gone.

There are other changes as well. The tributes to Shakur and black racist Khallid Muhammad, known as "America's Black Hitler," have disappeared from his web pages. The articles were saved, however, and can be found here.

Imagine how much taxpayer money and tax-free “foundation” and “grant” money the Bauer-Dunn’s have sucked from the system they have spent their lives despising and seeking to overturn.

And now we know why Gibbs is such a poodle- he was trained by an attack Lhasa Apso.

I agree with you completely, these are vindictive bastards who think they can bully anyone and everyone.

The old saying about the press was never learned by these folks, “don’t get in to a war of words with someone who buys ink by the barrel”.

FOX has a lot of hours a day to engage you in a fight.

AH! So she admits that Fox News is doing research, unlike the other networks who are merely serving as microphones!
I found these two paragraphs particularly telling:

Dunn is married to Robert Bauer, a Washington, D.C., corporate lawyer who served as general counsel for Obama for America. It was Bauer who lobbied the Justice Department unsuccessfully last fall to pursue a criminal probe of American Issues Project (AIP), an independent group that sought to run an ad spotlighting Obama's ties to Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers.

Bob Beckel is bad because he is more likely to influence people, as opposed to an obvious loon like Marc Lamont Hill. But O'Reilly needs to confront Hill on his true beliefs: revolutionary communism, 'Black Liberation' (aka revolutionary communism, and his admiration for cops killers like revolutionaries Joanne Chesimard (aka Assata Shakur) and Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Normally, Michelle is right on target but, this time, I think she took aim and hit the sacrificial lamb. Dunn ain’t that bright. I see Rahmbo Emmanuel’s fingerprints on this one. It’s similar to the war that the Whine House waged earlier this year against Rush. Failed absolutely miserably!! The same will happen here.

The Whine House needs to deflect focus on zero and his lack of real accomplishments while collecting awards for doing NOTHING!!! So, to shift the focus from the Congress, cap ‘n tax (which has fallen quite noticeably off the radar!) and healthscare, they need a new boogyman. They’ve tried going after conservative bloggers like us and they’ve tried going after Rush. Neither of their previous efforts worked and this one won’t either.

Fox should prepare for a good laugh if a dead fish shows up in their mailbox with a Whine House return address!!

The major media outlets attacked George Bush relentlessly. How many times did the Bush White House lash out like the current one? There’s a lesson there somewhere...........

Note that the "embeds" who accompanied the Army in 2003 and reported in a "you were there" real-time arrangement with DoD were a lot less hostile to the Administration than the Washington Post pukes who came out later and showed up at firefight scenes and IED-explosion sites with their stories already 50% written, to plug local details and color into their political lies they were feeding the folks back home. WaPo's Baghdad man was especially noteworthy in this kind of reportage and in fact was outed in a 2004 or 2005 e-mail from an Army sergeant back home who saw what the guy was doing (which is as I've just described).

ABC's smart-butts don't include Martha Raddatz, who was there and saw a lot of the rough stuff and saw our people in the field manning up to handle the jihadis and Al-Q'aeda. She has great admiration and compassion for our military people in the field, and it shows. She's a patriot (bite on that, Carville!).

As to the question of Administration response, yes, the Bush Administration's response to press lies was very different from Obama's responses to challenge. But then, the 'Ratmedia handed the Administration its head on public trust. The press denigration of Mr. Bush was very, very successful.

Their 'Rat Boy now sits in the White House, plotting Marxist "revolution from above" on the American People. That's how successful their lying invective was. Bush accomplished his Administration's war goals, but a 'Rat sits in the White House trying to figure out how to betray our success and still get away with pushing the inevitable blame on someone else, so he can go on to become an American Lenin.

I honestly think the attack on Fox News is a foil to distract folks from the healthcare debate. Fox News should treat the White House as one would treat a child-ignore the attacks. The more they are discussed, the more credibility they receive.

I don’t understand why anyone is afraid of Rahm Emanuel. He is a 5’5” ballet dancing puss* whose claim to fame is that he rides the coattails of other politicians to power. The guy is a jerk loser who would be running a 7-11 or Dunkin Donuts if he were not in politics.
