“Brit built this foundation,” Fox News anchor Bret Baier says of his predecessor Brit Hume. “We’re just trying to complete the house.”
Baier, host of “Special Report,” lead anchor of FNC’s primary coverage, and moderator of five GOP debates, is profiled by the AP’s David Bauder today.
Of Newt Gingrich’s proposal to debate without a journalist-as-moderator, Baier says, “I don’t think that would work. I don’t think it would be too enjoyable to watch.” And of Gingrich’s attacks on the media: “It’s just politics. A lot of politicians have complained about media coverage and media questions. He just does it more frequently than others and perhaps more effectively.”
