Arbiter of good taste Fox News doesn’t need a reason to go after the White House, but the White House just gave it one: Outing the network as a member of the GOP.
There were no raised eyebrows White House communications director Anita Dunn’s comments to lazy media pundit Howard Kurtz on CNN’s Reliable Sources. Well, at least none at the substance of what she was saying. But to blatantly brand FNC as “a wing of the Republican party”? Those are fighting words. (The fun starts around the 1:30 mark.)
It’s only Monday morning, so Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity haven’t yet had a chance to run the clip and respond in turn. But we fully expect lots of expounding on the White House’s own misinformation campaigns. Which are, at least, adorable.
