Anita Dunn to Step Down
White House Communications Director Anita Dunn, who’s been leading the Obama administration’s charge against Fox News (and was promptly smeared as a commie sympathizer by Glenn Beck), will be stepping down at the end of the month.
This move has nothing to do with the Fox News issues, however — she was planning to leave from the beginning.
White House communications director Anita Dunn will step down from her post at the end of the month and Dan Pfeiffer, her deputy, will take over, according to sources familiar with the move.
Dunn, a longtime Democratic media consultant, took over the job on an interim basis earlier this year when Ellen Moran abruptly left the post to take a job at the Commerce Department. Dunn will return to Squier Knapp Dunn, the consulting firm where she is a partner, but will remain as a consultant to the White House on the communications and strategic matters.
