    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."

    White House boasts: We 'control' news media

    “Nixon didn’t try to do that,” Thomas said. “They couldn’t control (the media). They didn’t try. What the hell do they think we are, puppets? They’re supposed to stay out of our business. They are our public servants. We pay them.” -- Helen Thomas

    Shit......we already knew that Obama controlled the media. Just look at CNN, MSNBC, ABC and CBS.

    I guess it's about time someone came out and confirmed it.

    Probably because once a confirmed Obamalong--always an Obamalong--no matter what they admit too. Remember--Obama's "green jobs" czar Van Jones is on video giving praise to Hugo Chavez for taking over the media in his country.

    We still have one media outlet that is not under Obama's thumb that is constantly under attack by this adminstration. FOX NEWS

    ABC--CBS--NBC--CNN--MSNBC are in this administrations pocket.

    "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.

    LOL thus... "we control the media". :clap2: Heckofajob!

    Again, it's funny because you people don't know WHO controls "da media"... at all. Study public relations. Please... go to school and study take a course, you'll learn how to do everything Dunn talked about in the video. I'm wondering if anybody actually watched the video on this website:

    White House boasts: We 'control' news media

    Anita Dunn was talking about, clearly, strategy to keep information leaks from occuring and keeping the media from getting a leaked statement and running around with it. Remember the 2008 campaign when Palin and John McCain had that problem with people leaking shit to the media and then the media ran with it... (including FOX). Yeah they eat that shit up. Dunn was talking about a campaign strategy in which the lower members of the national campaign would be very tight lipped in careful about statements made to the media and very disciplined about interviews if there to be any at... you know what f-it, it's no use... there communist bastards...:lol:fine... whatever. Atleast I got something out of it... that was a brilliant strategy by Mrs. Dunn and the campaign. I learned something.

    Oh... I did find something scary though on the sight... an AD on the left side of the page (idk if it's a sponser of the website or not) but it's an AD for solar power generators. It lists reasons why you would need a generator... "hurricanes", "storms" and of all things (not an ice storm, blackout, or tornado BUT) "civil unrest". Hmm... subliminal messages?
