Newt Blames, Blasts Fox News

From “Gingrich Unloads on Fox News in Private Meeting,” Scott Conroy, Real Clear Politics:

“During a meeting with 18 Delaware Tea Party leaders here on Wednesday, Newt Gingrich lambasted Fox News Channel, accusing the cable network of having been in the tank for Mitt Romney from the beginning of the Republican presidential fight.  An employee himself of the news outlet as recently as last year, he also cited former colleagues for attacking him out of what he characterized as personal jealousy.

“‘I think Fox has been for Romney all the way through,’ Gingrich said…. ‘In our experience, Callista and I both believe CNN is less biased than Fox this year.  We are more likely to get neutral coverage out of CNN than we are of Fox, and we’re more likely to get distortion out of Fox.  That’s just a fact.’

“Gingrich did not pull his punches in accusing Rupert Murdoch…of pushing for Romney behind the scenes.

“‘I assume it’s because Murdoch as some point said, ‘I want Romney,’ and so ‘fair and balanced’ became ‘Romney.’ …  ‘And there’s no question that Fox had a lot to do with stopping my campaign because such a high percentage of our base watches Fox.’

“He saved his strongest condemnation for syndicated columnist and ABC television commentator George Will….

“Gingrich said that Will was among the conservative media figures who harbored ‘personal jealousy’ against him.”

So we know Newtie won’t be working at Fox again.  If Newt wants to assign blame, he needs to stop looking at the TV and look in the mirror.

    I think it’s time for this blogger to send Newt to the moon where he really wants to be, and out of the blog forever. He has become irrelevant and immaterial.
