GOP Presiential candidate Rick Santorum was on “On the Record” last night, and anchor Greta Van Susteren confronted him about comments he made yesterday about Fox News “shilling” for Mitt Romney.

“On behalf of my staff, who have been calling Governor Romney every day trying to get him back on our air ever since out last interview in South Carolina, they want to know if you can help them a little bit because they don’t feel like they are shilling, he won’t even do our show!” Van Susteren said.

Santorum clarified that he was referring to FNC’s news programs, though he declined to name which ones:

“Greta, you have been awesome, and Sean [Hannity] has been awesome. When I was talking Fox News I wasn’t talking your show or Sean’s show. your two shows have been exemplar, and even some of the afternoon shows. I am just looking at the news coverage that goes on at that network, and the amount of time that Governor Romney and some of his surrogates have been getting on the air.”
