Judith Miller and Kirsten Powers were on Fox News this morning during a weekly media segment on “Happening Now.” The hot topic: MSNBC’s Toure describing Sen. John McCain this week as a member of an “old, white, establishment,” who “wrongly and repeatedly attacked a much younger black woman [U.N. Amb. Susan Rice.]”

Powers, a democratic strategist, talked about her Twitter fight with TourĂ© over the comment this morning. Miller suggested, “If anybody had said, ‘an old black guy’ can you imagine what the outcry would have been? I mean this is just inappropriate. It is completely unworthy of informed criticism.”
