Clinton Campaign Praises “Fair and Balanced Fox” Again

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJ2nVor0bSI]

A few weeks ago I noted how Clinton has been joining forces with the “vast right wing conspiracy” (possibly because they now hold similar views on most issues beyond economics and abortion). One example was given in this post where Clinton surrogate Ed Rendell said, “FOX has done the fairest job, and remained the most objective of all the cable networks.” Clinton campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe repeated this claim last night saying, “Fair and balanced Fox. You beat them all.” (Video above.)

Hat tip to Jon Henke at Q and O, who comments:

One comment might be enthusiasm. Repetition, however, suggests this is a Clinton campaign talking point…and a rejection of the Leftroots attitude towards Fox News.


Update:
Fox is now using McCauliffe’s comments in a network promo.

    Typical. Remember that Hilary refused to even participate in the Sept 23 democratic debate put on by Fox News. MoveOn.org & ColorForChange.org stated that Fox News had been “hostile to the interests of Black America” and called for democrats to boycott Fox News. At the time, the majority of blacks had not decided for whom to vote & Hilary wanted to “get her share.” So, she joined the boycott. (as did Obama. Only Joe Biden, Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel didn’t kowtow.) The “debate” was canceled due to lack of participation. What changed such that Fox News is no longer “off limits”? Nothing. (Except it is now very clear most have decided for whom to vote.) NEITHER democratic presidential candidate decided to boycott Fox News due to their principles. Just politicians pandering for votes. (Obama showed that he was just a typical politician–you know, the very thing he decries.)

    Funny that…

    I wonder if Fox would be “fair and balanced” towards a Clinton presidency? If she’s lucky enough to achieve her goal, she’d better hope so. There will be a lot fewer people ready and willing to defend the Clintons this time around. (There were too many the first time; that’s why we have the issue of the Clinton campaign calling Fox “fair and balanced”.)

    Steve,

    I’m impressed by your abilities at mind reading to be able to say that Obama was acting purely out of pandering for votes and not out of principles.

    I’m also not impressed by the hypocrisy shown by those of you who repeat the ridiculous meme that Obama is not allowed to do anything a politician would do in order to get elected.

    Lex,

    Clinton probably thinks she has won over the right wing media and they won’t attack her. This is another in a long list of Clinton mistakes. As for defending her–she clearly forgot why Move On was formed when she attacked them.

    Ron,

    I’ve found the Move On criticism more than a little humorous myself…humorous in a Dickensian way, of course…like starving orphans.

    When you put all of these things together, i believe that we can form a very clear picture of Clinton’s personality and psychological makeup. I haven’t read enough Dickens to find that humorous yet; it’s just frightening…frightening in a Conradesque kind of way.

    Wise candidates, campaign managers, authors, strategists, viewers, etc. should stay away from Fox News until they prove an ability to deliver decent journalism instead of slanted views and distorted truths. There agenda is so obvious.

    Forget about John Mcsame being the presumptive repug nominee,Hillary Clinton is just plain presumptious. She thinks the very fact that she’s Hillary Clinton she can make people do whats not in their nature to do. It was this same presumption that caused her to fail with healthcare as the drug companies etc. just played her for the fool she realy is.
