Fox News, White House Back and Forth Continues to Make Headlines

Visit msnbc.com for Breaking News, World News, and News about the Economy

The Sunday talk shows yesterday continued to focus on the back and forth between the White House and Fox News. CNN’s Reliable Sources, ABC’s “This Week” and NBC’s “Meet the Press” all devoted segments to the issue, again highlighting recent comments from White House Communications Director Anita Dunn, specifically her statement, “The reality of it is that Fox News often operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party” and discounting Fox News as a “legitimate” news organization.

We’ve posted the “Meet the Press” clip above. Host David Gregory cut straight to the chase at the beginning of the segment. “Why is the White House doing this, and is it working for them?” he asked. Panelist Tavis Smiley of PBS called it “a distraction.” TVNewser has the CNN and ABC segments.
