The Obama campaign's press strategy leading up to his election last November focused on "making" the media cover what the campaign wanted and on exercising absolute "control" over coverage, White House Communications Director Anita Dunn told an overseas crowd early this year.

What Ms. Dunn has admitted doing is criminal.

Do you think the brain dead Cult of Obama will finally see how they were duped?

Once again if you aren't watching Fox News programs, you are not getting to the Truth & or the Facts.

Well, they’re still controlling the message. Maybe not fully, but they’re still working on it.

Not really criminal. She is saying that they only answered questions they wanted to answer, only provided access they wanted to provide, only talked about their own issues, and pretty much left the press to fend for themselves.

It’s the PRESS that accepted this entire situation, and never told the American People that the press was being denied access to information.

They were quite willing to accept the control. There is the worse crime.

I don’t think it was that hard for them either. Most of the press never asked a question that would have bothered them.

They controlled the media, but the media was very happy to cooperate with the democrats.

Why does the trailer for the remade series on TV, V , remind me of the Obama Admin? The Visitor being interviewed tells the interviewer (Scott Wolf) not to ask any questions that would cast them in a bad light. Wouldn’t be surprised to find the Admin is made up of aliens who want to do us harm.

Not true. I do not get FNC because I do not subscribe to cable or satellite TV. Your comment is highly insulting to members of FR.

Probably didn’t have to try real hard.

It was the perfect storm. The press hated Bush. Obama was black (or at least close enough). It was the perfect rags to POTUS story. No one wanted to be the fly in that ointment.

Jake Tapper seems to be the only one from the MSM who will even ask a remotely difficult question even now. I have to wonder, if Nixon were a black man would anyone have even bothered?

Nothing to see here, just move along...

This country is now something other than a Constitutional Republic.

Dunn needs to go NOW! Hell, she deserves her own protest. All the damn Czars do with her as the centerpiece.

What, exactly, was the crime committed?

It seems to me that they seriously manipulated the media. Is that a shock? The failure was on the part of the media to investigate and manitain objectivity. They chose not to. The ostammer campaign knew the media was willing to suspend disbelief and professional journalism practices and took full advantage of it. That is not a crime.

Remember all the times that the exalted White House Press Corps asked President Bush to discuss/admit his mistakes?

Well, these same exalted folks should ask themselves how they like being outed as conspirators with the Obama campaign.

How else can they explain that they were played, and didn’t notice!!!!

Exactly.
Now the boot-licking brigade/socialist corporate media are being embarrassed by their master.
Puts them all in a rather interesting position, doesn’t it?

I think that's the crux. Every campaign *tries* to control media coverage - they hire people with this stated goal.

We will just have to “stayed tuned” for further developments.

The attack on Fox News is just another one of the shell game feints that the 0 admin relies on.

We have to stop watching the fancy stuff, and focus on the deadly serious attack on the American free market system that is coming from the “democratic” party.

Makes me thing of the phrase “Government Media Complex” that Michael Savage mentions every so often.
