The animosity between this White House and Fox News seems to be ratcheting up.  This Sunday the White House communications director Anita Dunn had this to say on CNN’s “Reliable Sources”:  “Let's not pretend they're a news network…Fox News often operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party.”  Dunn continued:  "What I think is fair to say about Fox, and certainly the way we view it, is that it really is more a wing of the Republican Party.”  “We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent.”
