Clinton: “In Terms Of The Fairness” FNC Treating Campaign Better Than MSNBC

By Chris Ariens 

FishbowlDC has the story of Sen. Hillary Clinton‘s appearance on Washington, D.C.’s ABC affiliate yesterday.

Clinton said that “in terms of the fairness of the coverage,” of her campaign, Fox News Channel has been better than MSNBC. The fairness issue came up during a discussion about David Shuster‘s remarks last Thursday.

“I really am troubled by this pattern of behavior and comments that you hear” on MSNBC, said Clinton. “They need to take a hard look. This is like the third time they’ve had to apologize and there are lot of things that they haven’t had to apologize for that might have merited one.”

On Friday, Clinton sent a letter to NBC News president Steve Capus writing, “No temporary suspension or half-hearted apology is sufficient. Politico’s John Harris who conducted the interview asked Clinton what she thought would be appropriate.

“That’s not my job John,” said Clinton. “That’s the job of the people who run the network.”
