Dem Strategist: Fox News is a Joke for Lefty Guests

If you’re a booker for Fox News, don’t bother calling Democratic Strategist Peter Fenn. This morning he told Current TV that he stopped doing Fox in the last election cycle and has no plans to go back.

“I was on Hannity and Colmes, I tried to pull back on it for awhile, but I went on and I was supposed to talk about the race,” he said. “And they said, you know, Peter today we’re changing the topic.  We want to talk about why Michelle Obama hates America, and they had me on with some nutcase. I wrote them an email. I wrote Sean an email and Alan. I said, ‘Guys, you can get anyone you want to come on your shows. I’m done. …Every time I go on, you pull a football away, you change the topics, you cut us off. I said, a Democrat on this program is a joke. It’s a fire hydrant.’ You know, my wife wouldn’t talk to me. I had to take a shower when I got home and the dog went into the corner.”

Fenn is also not so enthralled with MSNBC. “I made MSNBC very angry when I criticized them for dropping Pat Buchanan,” he continued. “Look…I disagree with Pat, but you can have a civil dialogue with Pat, and when they fired him it was because of pressure on the station. It removed what I thought was a very entertaining, very smart and interesting point of view and that’s a mistake in our society.”
