Obama seems to support the White House attacks on Fox News. Just like with Gibbs' comment it is not much of a surprise. This was almost certainly authorized by Obama, because if it was not they would have backed off quickly after Dunn's comments. Instead they kept pressing forward. Obama has now publicly thrown his weight behind that position.

This sage, starting from the beginning; 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 declared Fox News the unequivocated victor. Axelrod and Emanuel joined in to take some of the pressure off of Dunn. A new video of Dunn surfaced where she said "very rarely did we communicate through the press anything that we didn't absolutely control", which Beck used. Gibbs has thrown his support behind the White House position. Olbermann (MSNBC) voiced his approval and had a bit of fun. Now Obama has voiced his support of what must be seen as the official White House position.
