The Fox News Channel has been all over the tumult involving CNN and NBC’s involvement in projects involving former Secretary of State (and possible 2016 presidential candidate) Hillary Rodham Clinton.
CNN is planning to air a film about Clinton; NBC is hoping to air a four-part miniseries. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is threatening to shut the two networks out of GOP presidential debates when the 2016 campaign kicks into gear.
But wait. The New York Times reports that Fox Television Stations is involved in the production and distribution of the CNN project.
What say you now, Fox News Channel talking heads?
Priebus clammed up about the NY Times report, preferring to focus instead on the creative minds behind the works. Priebus, of course, loves FNC — as do political conservatives all over the country, given the network’s right-leaning slant.
Oh, I forgot, Fox is “fair and balanced.”
Whatever. I’m going to lay down a bet that Fox commentators might have to tone down their outrage.
