WASHINGTON - It's war.
The Obama administration declared Fox News - and its owner, reporters and commentators - shills for the President's Republican opponents Sunday.
"Let's not pretend they're a news network," White House communications director Anita Dunn said on CNN's "Reliable Sources," firing the latest salvo in the long-simmering feud.
"Fox News often operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party," Dunn said.
"What I think is fair to say about Fox, and certainly the way we view it, is that it really is more a wing of the Republican Party," she added.
