White House -vs- Fox News

Setting another precedence for the executive office the Obama administration on Sunday called Fox News “a wing of the Republican Party.” So far this has served only to escalate the pre-established war of words against the channel, even as observers questioned the wisdom of a White House war on a news organization. ”What I think is fair to say about Fox — and certainly it’s the way we view it — is that it really is more a wing of the Republican Party,” said Anita Dunn, White House communications director, on CNN. “They take their talking points, put them on the air; take their opposition research, put them on the air. And that’s fine. But let’s not pretend they’re a news network the way CNN is.” In an interview over the summer, Obama made clear that Fox News has gotten under his skin. ”I’ve got one television station that is entirely devoted to attacking my administration,” he told CNBC’s John Harwood. “You’d be hard pressed if you watched the entire day to find a positive story about me on that front.” Is this taking the high road though? Does this sort of comment only deepen animosity between the news media and the executive branch? Is Fox news seeing growth in popularity because they are entering the mainstream subconscious through the Obama administration’s attacks? GO! (Quotes and research statistics courtesy of AP)
