Fred Thompson: Fixed News is biased against me...

From Pandagon.

What do you know — we have a genius observation from the GOP Clown Car. The presidential hopeful and Law & Order actor seems to have felt the love from the “fair and balanced” network. Pull out the tiny violin:
Former Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) suggested on Sunday that Fox News is biased against his campaign, charging that the network highlights commentators who have been critical of his run for the presidency.

In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” host Chris Wallace pressed Thompson on how some conservatives have lambasted Thompson’s campaign and showed clips of Fox conservative commentators Charles Krauthammer and Fred Barnes criticizing the former senator.

Thompson said, “This has been a constant mantra of Fox, to tell you the truth.” He noted that other conservatives have praised his bid for the GOP nomination and took issue with a Fox promo that focused on polling in New Hampshire, where Thompson is registering in the single digits.

Thompson, in a firm, but measured tone, scolded Wallace: “…for you to highlight nothing but the negatives in terms of the polls and then put on your own guys who have been predicting for four months, really, that I couldn’t do it, kind of skew things a little bit. There’s a lot of other opinion out there.”

Personally, tell me where I go wrong, but I seem to have noticed just the teensiest, weensiest bit of a whiff of support by the champs of satLITE distortion for Ghouliani...

Yupper Gert....and I believe they are. As you know, I watch FOX continuously, and on several ocassions I've heard exactly what Fred is talking about...and it has pissed me off, because when he has climbed dramatically in the polls(I know...your not a big believer), they've reported the opposite....and I have e-mailed FOX News regarding my observations and feelings...even my pal...O'Reilly... ;-)

Actually it strikes me that over at Fox, it's Horn Shammity that does most of the legwork for Julie-Anne.
