” a huge part of our press strategy was focused on making the media cover what Obama was actually saying as opposed to why the campaign was saying it, what the tactic was. … Making the press cover what we were saying.” “

That's actually not a bad strategy. It might have helped Bush.

My only question is what is going to be the reaction of the MSM to this revelation? Perhaps, they will grow some backbone and once again become independent. NAW.

As for "news organizations" that won't play along with the "controlled news" operations of the White House? Why, they're "not legitimate news organizations."

Well they couldn't if the "media" weren't a bunch of sycophantic Obamophiliacs.

I'd say it's more like consentual sex.

I guess this is what they mean when they say Fox is not a legitimate news organization. Illegitimate, in their view, means “not controlled by us”.

Well, of course. This way President Platitude can say whatever he wants and not be questioned.

Someone please tell Obongo and his criminal gang that they control nothing but a bunch of communist programs that exist to foist an Orwellian worldview onto society.

We are Americans, which means that we are not willingly susceptible to the dystopian plans that the democrat party has in store for us.

In short....

As much as Dunn would want to control all media, I can't get too wotked up over this. She's talikng about campaign media strategy. As a campaign plan you want the media responding to you not the other way around. They kept Obama talking whenever something else was about to come up and the media responded to the haloed one's words.

Media control is what Axelrod, Dunn, and Gibbs are doing now in isolating Fox as a lesson to any news org that wanders off the res. The danger lies when the other orgs start losing revenue stream and viewers. Obama walks, but money still talks. The media will begin to turn enough so that Fox is no longer alone in reporting the real news.

Heh, yes they do!...except for FOX which they are trying to destroy... If there is any justice it will be that FOX not only continues to thrive, but becomes far and away the number one news network! Of course this could not happen without this Administration continuing it’s attacks - thank goodness, guys, keep it up...

Wow, that’s an incredible admission. How long until they change the meaning of the quote, or otherwise spin it to try and give another interpretation to it?
