Anita Dunn Stepping Down - UPDATED

As planned, Anita Dunn will leave at the end of the month as interim White House Communications Director.

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.
...The passing of the baton from Dunn to [Deputy Communications Director Dan] Pfeiffer had long been expected within White House circles as she had made clear when she took the job that the "interim" in her title was meant to be taken literally.
How soon before Fox News calls this a victory on their end in the war of Reality vs. Fiction?

UPDATE (11/11/09 10:30am): I called it. It was a matter of a couple of hours. What took so long?
