In response to a recent decline by President Barack Obama to be interviewed on Fox News, W.H. Communications Director Anita Dunn has expressed harsh criticism of Fox News in an interview on CNN's "Reliable Sources."
During that interview, Dunn made it clear that Obama's recent decline to appear was because of the administration's belief that there is a lack of fair and balanced reporting from the network and do not consider Fox comparable to other media outlets.
Of Fox News, she stated, "The reality of it is that Fox often operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party."
She also added that Obama would appear again on Fox News at later dates.
