Ms. Dunn, Let's Pretend You Work for the President and Not a Left-Wing Blog

So I'm hearing an awful lot about how the White House communications director hates Fox.

Really hates Fox.

Anita Dunn saying, "Let's not pretend they're a news network."

She just said that on CNN, after saying the same to Time magazine.

Lately, it's been her shtick. Her game.

So, Ms. Dunn, let's continue playing it.

Let's pretend you're serious.

Let's pretend you're not a tad thin-skinned.

Let's pretend you get your facts straight, on whether we thoroughly reported Nevada Republican Senator John Ensign's affair, which we did.

Or only trash Democrats and not Republicans, which we do not.

Let's pretend you're open to criticism.

Let's pretend you see alternative points of view on health care.

Let's pretend when someone opposes your view, they might have a point.

And when you simply refuse to accept it, you're the one who might not have a clue.

Let's pretend you have a memory and recall Fox programs like this one disparaging last year's financial rescues and whether they were pouring good money after bad.

Let's pretend you know history, and recall that a Republican was in the White House then.

And a Republican treasury secretary refused to come on this show then.

Let's pretend you're aware that on Fox Business shows, in particular, this isn't about this president or the last president, but our money.

Let's pretend you're interested in that.

And not dismissing that.

Let's pretend you work for the president of the United States and not some left-wing blog in the United States.

Let's pretend you're as big as the historic place you work.

And not as petty as the less than historic words you spout.

And let's pretend you care about all of our independent viewers.

And aren't being just careless about those viewers' cares.

So let's pretend you're focused on the issues that matter.

And not the petty squabbles that do not.

Just as we should pretend you're not over-wrought and snapping.

Maybe just over-worked and snippy.
