FNC’s VP and Washington bureau chief Brian Wilson spoke to a group of journalism students at Texas Tech last night.
Wilson talked about the criticism often leveled at Fox News. Maggie Kiely of The Daily Toreador writes:
“Wilson said he believes the reason Fox often receives criticism for being biased is because of the opinions of Fox hosts like Bill O’Reilly. ‘Bill O’Reilly is not a journalist; it is an opinion-based program,’ he said. ‘I think we get unfairly smeared because of Bill O’Reilly, and it has a huge following. I don’t agree with half of what he says, but that is what characterizes Fox News.”
