White House senior adviser David Axelrod and Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel have joined the fray with Dunn and attacked Fox News. For those of you just picking up the story now or as a brief recap, this started when White House Communications Director Anita Dunn 'called out' Fox News. Beck responded by installing a 'Red Phone Hotline', then aired a tape where Dunn said that Mao was one of her favorite philosophers. On the defensive, Dunn countered by saying that she was joking, and then added "Let it be noted that I also quoted Mother Teresa, but no one is accusing me of being a saint!". Not only was I was unconvinced, the New York Times who declared Fox News the unequivocated victor. Axelrod and Emanuel now appear to be joining in to take some of the pressure off of Dunn.
