White House: We Will Treat Fox News Differently
January 28, 2010 by Personal Liberty News Desk
White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer expressed his discontent with Fox earlier this week, saying that the conservative network is "not a traditional news organization" and will be treated differently than other information providers.
In an interview with The New York Times, Pfeiffer said that Fox News has "a point of view [and] that point of view pervades the entire network."
"We don’t feel the obligation to treat them like we would treat a CNN, or an ABC, or an NBC, or a traditional news organization, but there are times when we believe it makes sense to communicate with them," he added.
Pfeiffer has recently replaced former director Anita Dunn who had a history of tense moments with the conservative news station, commonly referring to them as a "wing of the Republican Party," Newsmax.com reports.
When asked if the White House will respond to Fox pundits such as Sarah Palin, Pfeiffer said that they will correct the record of anyone creating a false depiction of the current administration’s policies, according to the Business Insider.
