Obama's White House Claims Media Control

So says Anita Dunn, Comrade Chairman O's White House Communication's Director, and admirer of the murderous Mao, who had this to say in a recent video conference with the government of the Dominican Republic (emphasis mine):

"Very rarely did we communicate through the press anything that we didn't absolutely control," said Dunn.

"One of the reasons we did so many of the David Plouffe videos was not just for our supporters, but also because it was a way for us to get our message out without having to actually talk to reporters," said Dunn, referring to Plouffe, who was Obama's chief campaign manager.

"We just put that out there and made them write what Plouffe had said as opposed to Plouffe doing an interview with a reporter. So it was very much we controlled it as opposed to the press controlled it," Dunn said.


Continued Dunn: "Whether it was a David Plouffe video or an Obama speech, 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."
You will find the rest of the WorldNetDaily article here.

You can read Glenn Beck's take on Dunn here.

I find it not a little troubling (yet not at all surprising) that this particular White House has placed an admirer of Mao in charge of it's communications, as there is no shortage of people swirling around Obama who have a high level of admiration for the most murderous and freedom-robbing form of government the world has yet seen.

I truly am beginning to wonder just how many more Marxists/communists and their sympathizers are going to turn up in the current administration before the republicans get off the couch and start asking some tough questions.

To this point, they have had distressingly little to say.

Glad you're back up and running!

Yeah, these commies are doing their best to control everything we read, see, believe, eat, drive, etc. Scary to think we have to live through 3 mores years of this crap!
