Former WH Comm Director: War With
Fox News Was ‘Simple Decision,’
Their ‘Alternative Universe’
Now ‘Crumbling’

Remember Anita Dunn, the former White House Communications Director who famously went to war with Fox News back in 2009? Wednesday afternoon, she was back in action, talking with HuffPost Live about why the decision to battle with the most-watched cable news network was a “simple” decision because of Fox’s persistently negative coverage of President Obama, adding that she believes the network’s “alternative reality” is “crumbling.” Readers may recall back in 2009 that Dunn generated controversy when she told TIME magazine that Fox is “opinion journalism masquerading as news.” The comment fueled an already-tense battle between the

Ahh yes, the delightful Mao loving lizard mouth Dunn rears her ugly head. It´s amazing to me this regime has been able to find so many revulsive people.

It´s crumbling alright. Because it keeps moving to the left by hiring leftists.

Over the long haul the White House is winning. Fox has been moving more to the left the past couple of years, and becoming less critical of the administration. We can expect Obama et al to win. They play hardball, the don´t play fair, and they play to win. Most conservatives are unwilling to use the left´s methods, therefore the conservatives are slowly losing the war for the hearts and minds of the American public.

Rush Limbaugh and other prominent and wealthy media people need to throw their fortunes behind a truly conservative network.

It would be a hit.

The Blaze is conservative and only about half creepy.

Fox seems to shoot for the middle.

Many of their "Leftists" do a poor job of making their case.

Fidel Beckel, Juanito Williams, Allen Colmes ?

Hardly Bertrand Russel and Gore Vidal.

That pesky First Amendment thing is so inconvenient for our mendacious president and his minions. Nevertheless, Fox News´s ratings are "crumbling" higher by the day. It seems there is a lively market for "alternative universes" these days.

I used to be addicted to FNC, but Roger Ailes is creating a vacuum with the drift leftward. That vacuum will be filled. There are alternate possibilities via internet streaming. Even News Corp has an investment in Roku. I find foxnews.com often more satisfying and in-depth than it´s cable/satellite big brother. There´s room to filter out the gratuitous "fair and balanced" panels and offer more conservative programming based around the main FNC offerings.

As to Ms. Dunn, I still can´t get past her "Mao is my hero" speech with the dry-tongue smacking. Give that woman some water.

What´s she saying is that Fox should get the Lawrence O´Donnell and Sgt. Schultz types...they are the truth tellers. Oh, and also that gal that thought the coming asteroid might be caused by global warming. That´s the kind of thinking Fox needs.

My alternate universe is thinking that someone that sold us a healthcare bill by saying that it will save families $2500, which now,of course, will COST families an additional $2500 to @3000 (CBO) was lying. Or that there were ´shovel-ready´ jobs when there weren´t, and laughed about it! Or saying they were going to put all bills on line ahead of the boat, but didn´t. Do you think MSNBC would call Obama on that? I must have missed it.

I agree with #15. If anyone knows of a serious network that IS Conservative 24/7, please let me know. Until then it would be suicide to let FNC fail just to prove a point. That´s called "cutting off your nose to spite your face". At least it used to be called that, back in the day. The ONLY "crumbling" are the careers of leftists like the detestable Ms. Mao-Dunn and the rest of them. The garbage=pravda-networks have enough control right now. Seriously.

I have watched for years, and sorry, the idea that Fox is crumbling is almost as stupid as the idea that Fox is "moving to the left".

Hannity´s show used to be both him and Colmes...Colmes had his own show but failed. Fox presents both sides, as they all have. O´Reilly has never been Mr. Ultra Conservative. Their news reporting is very fair.

Their ratings are stellar, and even with capturing all the airports and other public areas, CNN rates lower.

Everyone knows what Fox is, and no one remembers Anita Dunn, sorry Kirell.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in.
