Anita Dunn

TEL AVIV President Obama's presidential campaign focused on "making" the news media cover certain issues while rarely communicating anything to the press unless it was "controlled," White House Communications Director Anita Dunn disclosed to the Dominican government at a videotaped conference.

"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."

It was obvious that Obama was manipulating the media and the public. His message was of little substance, but warm and fuzzy fluff designed to make people feel good about supporting him.
There are even some who are still floating along on that "feel good train" and refuse to notice that the tracks are leading straight to a cliff.

But they are happy because their guy won, and that is all that matters.

And ... now that they have been told they were manipulated they believe it. When they are later told they weren't manipulated ... they will believe that.

' Trying to get your message out' is what EVERY politician has done, in every election ,EVER!
Geez, the last Admin manipulated the news for 8 years without a peep from you guys. [you guys = those now attacking Obama for everything.]

When serious discussions on TV about serious issues like HC take second place to the Balloon Boy non-event....what can you say about the US media?

The US fringe media ... formerly known as the MSM ... is merely a party organ.

The only remaining journalism in the US ... those which investigate and report things ... are what you and other leftists get your shorts all in a wad over.

Q. If you truely believe in your message, you should be more than happy to sit down and discuss the merits with any and all reporters.

If you just want to make sure your side is reported without any discussion, or without having to defend your position or answer any questions...Obama has shown how to do that as well.

They manipulated the news into bashing and criticizing them that whole time? I would have presented a better perspective of myself were I in their shoes.
