The Washington Post speculates that White House Communications Director Anita Dunn was sent out on CNN to attack Fox News because sending Dunn “potentially gave the administration the opportunity to distance itself from the flap with the Roger Ailes-led news channel once she leaves the communications job.” This strikes me as taking the concept of Kremlinology to an absurd degree. Do Obama administration watchers need to check if a White House spokesman is shopping her resume to see if we should take what they say seriously? Presumably, if someone goes out on TV as a White House spokesperson, the White House is on the hook for what they have to say.
