Anita ‘Scarface’ Dunn Goes Out With Guns Blazing: Praises Jon Stewart and MSNBC while Still Dumping on Fox

November 16, 2009

Ever see the end of “Scarface”?  If you’re going down you might as well go down fighting. President Barack Obama’s mastermind behind the Fox News war, Anita Dunn, is not fading away after resigning from the Obama White House.

In her first interview (done on Bloomberg television) Dunn is throwing grenades and emptying her chamber on all her enemies.  She also makes some statements about Jon Stewart and MSNBC that reveal her blindness for truth isn’t limited to her love for Mao Zedong.

(To read up on NewsReal’s coverage of Dunn go here. )

Watch Dunn’s attacks and outlandish praises:

Bloomberg’s Albert Hunt does a decent job with questions in the interview.  They are good enough to learn a lot about the mindset of Dunn.  For example we learn she thinks Obama’s White House has failed on online communication since achieving power.  If you read between the lines, its plain she realizes those holding Obama accountable have done far better than Obama’s folks in using the web.

We also learn that Dunn is either a bold liar or completely ignorant of  how she has led the Obama administration to wage war against many in the press.  She comes off like Baghdad Bob when she says,

“The reality is that, I think that if you look at the Obama White House, what you see is, and the American people have seen this, you see a President who has really gone to extraordinary lengths to reach out to people who don’t agree with him.  And to make sure that the people who don’t agree with him have their voices heard in this process.”

How does she say that with a straight face?  This Obama administration has become famous for doing whatever it can to silence the press if it doesn’t deflect negative and promote his agenda. Chris Wallace called them “crybabies” and Helen Thomas said they were worse than Nixon.

We also see how blindly biased she is for anyone other than FoxNews.  Dunn actually believes The Daily Show is more legitimate journalism than FoxNews.

Dunn: “Jon Stewart of the Daily Show on Comedy Central…That’s where you are getting fact-checking, investigative journalism these days…We’re under no delusions of the political agenda of [FoxNews].”

When asked about the bias of MSNBC, she defends them and calls them “different than Fox”.  Dunn claims that Joe Scarborough hosting the morning show means the network isn’t biased.  She comes across like the racist golf course owner who points to the one black member in the club, so that the course isn’t banned by the PGA.

Dunn also hints that her resignation just may have been a case of yet another person in the Obama family thrown under the bus.  Twice she makes the case that her battle with FoxNews was not done by “going rogue.”  She may just be saying she did nothing on her own and should have been able to keep her job longer.

When Scarface finally went down in his blaze of glory he was never seen from again.  Unfortunately, since Dunn is going to shift to being a consultant with the White House, we may be hearing even more from her soon.

    That’s a most unflattering profile. Reminds me of the Wicked Witch from the Wizard of Oz.

      Jon Stewart would call you a fool for saying that. Even he knows what they do isn’t legitimate journalism.

        Actually, I’m pretty sure he would agree with me. And he would be saddened by the fact that there is more legitimate journalism in his fake news show than in the other cable news networks.

    Ummmm… She said “illusions” not “delusions.” It helps if you pay attention to the video instead of hating the woman during it. MSNBC are just as bad as Faux news. All they do is worship the President. We need Ted Koppel back. Journalism died in America a while back. I’d rather listen to the hippies over at Pacifica than Faux or MSNBC.

    I’ve been rather suprised by the battle between the White House and FNC. What suprises me is that more news agencies are not weighing in on the debate supporting Dunn. Most people I’ve talked to smirk and chuckle when the topic strays to Fox news. It is pretty much a given that they are a fawning group of people. Granted, people should be able to tell the difference between the news and op ed, but I’m not certain the average Fox viewer can. No disrespect intended, but Fox just does not seem to provide multiple views in a respectful environment. No news there. Look at the PIPA poll and it says it all. What surprises me is that NPR listeners are still ill informed according to the poll. Europeans and Canadians are much better informed due to their State media which cannot be influenced by government and thus must remain more objective. Often there is an ombudsman’s office which addresses all complaints. Seems to work pretty well when you crunch the polling data on key issues which is the objective measure of things. Stop acting so angry and bring some civility to media again. Call Fox what it is and disassociate real news stations from it. Oh, and for all you angry people out their, I voted for a conservative party last election. Name calling just makes you look childish.

      Augustin, you have obviously never listened to or watched the BBC and CBC. Either that or you’re smokin’ something stronger than is good for you if you can write this without ironic intent:

        Cas: What you say is oh so true. The BBC is a leftist, anti-Israeli cesspit of lies and distortions whose reporting of the muslim major was more politically correct than Obi’s and his general.

      I never would have believed that people who are not literally blind and not literally deaf actually believe this.

      I think we must have been invaded by aliens who look human but have all their wires twisted. (Is the television show “V” a true story??)

    “Europeans and Canadians are much better informed due to their State media which cannot be influenced by government and thus must remain more objective.”

    Splutter!!! As a ‘European’, I can tell you that al- Beeb is totally biased hence the name I and many others use. After Labour’s big win in 1997 the corridors were strewn with champagne bottles, they are socialist to the core and getting any truth out of them, say on Islam is like pulling teeth.

    For example to them Gert Wilders is an islamophobe racist.

    As for objectivity on Israel forget it.

    They shilled for Labour and now that party has been found out by the public to be like any other left wing organisation, corrupt, rotten, devious, preachy, lying and like Obama with no shred of national pride, they are running around like headless chickens. Labour will be out come next summer and al-Beeb know that their sins of overt partisanship will come home to roost.

    Oh happy day!

    In addition they are bloated, self satisfied and the top people earn huge salaries way beyond any realistic judgement of what they are worth.

    Thats the BBC.

      It was the Baghdad Broadcasting Corporation; now the Barack Bulls**t Collective.
      Watch it squirm at the prospect of the current government losing the forthcoming general election. Watch it pander ti left wing causes and slant the news against the Tories.

    A MSNBC reporter that was detained by the Chinese police for wearing a “Oba-Mao” tee shirt. She complained that they wanted to see her passport, press credentials and most of all they wanted her tee shirt. The Chinese government apparently thought that Americans would feel insulted by the tee shirt. Really? The Chinese apparently have more common sense than the Obama administration and the Maoists that have claimed it their responsibility to destroy and then re-build this country to their liking. No wonder Anita Dunn likes MSNBC, two peas in a pod.

    This disgraceful and hatefilled member of Obama’s insiders is really a democratic attack dog .It is the democratic party who is to blame.They will do anything to destroy any body who disagrees with them.They use MSNBC .They will try to personally destroy anyone by any means to stay in power.Highest unemployment ever,bowing down to foreign goverment,accusing cable news[fox]because they got the story of Van Jones and Acorn,not giving increases to senior citizens,giving bonuses to big banks,trying mass murders in my state-New York.Obama and the democratic party are destroying the United States.At least this hound dog face is gone .

    Comedy Central, indeed! When your mind is that of a three-year old.

    As for Obama listening to those who disagree with him – have any of you sent an email to the Whitehouse which has a box if you would like a response? I’ve never received a response. At least bad old George Bush’s whitehouse at least acknowledged receipt of your email.

    Top Jerk responses ( in not particular order):

    Comedy Central, indeed! When your mind is that of a three-year old.( The beauty of this comment is that reports have come out , showing the median IQ for people who watch the Daily Show to be far higher than the median for those who watch FOX)

    It is the democratic party who is to blame.They will do anything to destroy any body who disagrees with them.(First of buddy, its anybody not any body. The Republican part has never done that. Nope. As a side note a few comments about fox not being news is not “destroying.” It is quibbling. Fox isn’t news, Rupert Murdoch has said it time and time again, they are OPINION. They have to spin everything. )

    The Chinese apparently have more common sense than the Obama administration and the Maoists that have claimed it their responsibility to destroy and then re-build this country to their liking. ( How many groups is Obama affiliated with now? At last count he is a Marxist, Communist, Nazi, Maoist, Dictator. We should throw in Dracula for good measure. People are still scared of him , right? Seriously though. You have no idea how stupid you are when you label a man with a group you know little about. In fact, I don’t like you , may I call you the president of NAMBLA? )

    on anita dunn, isn’t it interesting how often ugliness in the soul comes out in the face.( Glad you equate evil with ugly. So the older you get, the more evil you become? No joke, old people get wrinkly and scary looking therefore they must be true evil! No wonder Obama wants them gone under Obamacare! It all makes sense now…)

        I think you mean: does your first initial stand for jerk? And yes, you got me, I am a jerk (not the people calling Dunn a dog or hideous or Obama evil but me). Being a “jerk” doesn’t discredit me as a person or anything I’ve said though. As you say I am an authority :). Its just the only jab you can take at me, and its a very old move. Very akin to the playground favorite “NO YOU’RE A JERK.” Also, thank you for using the term “we.” It shows what a good grasp of individuality you have, you free spirited American rebel you.

      Obama studied with Marxist professors and made no bones about it, JL. Obama said with his own lips, that he would ‘build a civilian force, just as powerful as the US military’.
      The very first orders that B.H.O., carried out, was how many exec. orders? In his FIRST 30 days? Executive orders are a LAST resort, not a first.

      B.H.O., takes no heed to the people, pushing through us peons that we must pay for abortions overseas, as well as here- like it or not. If you oppose this anti-Christ monster in the W.H., you are ostracized; Reverend Manning, (a black preacher that has stood against Obama since the very beginning) has had a nice little visit from the CIA and the DHS, and is now under investigation….

      FOR WHAT, JL? FOR WHAT? What kind of nation that says it is ‘free’ sends out some purple shirted SEIU creeps? What about Lou Dobbs? Lou Dobbs questioned the dear leaders birth certificate issue MONTHS ago, and ended up being paid off to LEAVE cnn.

      If this is not heading toward fascism, JL, WHAT IS?
      Fascism:
      a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism.

      Banks, JL., Car cos, JL, Heath insurance now JL? Not being able to criticize? Czars? 32 or so? Czar means TOTAL power.

      JL, you are either in total denial, or you are just REFUSING to see what is happening, much as people did in 1930’s Germany.
