Oh yes, we all forgot that Newt Gingrich is still running for the Republican nomination. Things are apparently so bad for the Newtsta, that he is now stirring things up with his old boss, the Fox News Network. Anything to get some publicity I guess, and it seems to be working.
Real Clear Politics reports the Gingrich uproar occurred ”during a meeting with 18 Delaware Tea Party leaders on Wednesday.”
Said Gingrich: “I think Fox has been for Romney all the way through. 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.”
Gignrich was an employee himself of the news channel as recently as last year but was suspended as he geared up for a presidential bid.
TV Newser has a response from Fox News: “This is nothing other than Newt auditioning for a windfall of a gig at CNN — that’s the kind of man he is.”
