Kurtz: “Clinton Acquitted Herself Quite Well”

By SteveK 

The Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz reflects on the first-ever interview between Sen. Hillary Clinton and FNC’s Bill O’Reilly. “It was clear that Hillary Clinton acquitted herself quite well in the Fox News sit-down, in part because politicians can score more runs when they’re forced to play hardball,” he writes.

He also features a summary of other opinions on the two-part interview, from around the web:

John Nichols of The Nation: “One of the creepier moments in the creepy history of Fox’s experiment in partisan broadcasting.”


• National Review’s Doug Heye: “She demonstrated a willingness to enter the ‘lion’s den.'”
