"Hostile Workplace" Quote Verified on Tape

One of the most striking quotes in Ron Suskind's Confidence Men comes from former White House communications director Anita Dunn who was quoted as saying that, "this place would be in court for a hostile workplace... Because it actually fit all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women."

Dunn insisted to the Washington Post she was quoted out of context and said that she told the author "point blank" that the White House was not a hostile work environment.

However, Suskind allowed a reporter to review a recorded excerpt of the original interview, which shows Dunn saying the same thing quoted in the book, though she excluded President Obama from the characterization.
