RealClearPolitics had access to a meeting in Dover, Delaware Wednesday held by Newt Gingrich. During the get-together with members of the Delaware Tea Party, Gingrich, a former Fox News analyst, lambasted the channel.
I think FOX has been for Romney all the way through, said Gingrich, adding, Callista and I both believe CNN is less biased than FOX this year. We are more likely to get neutral coverage out of CNN than we are of FOX, and were more likely to get distortion out of FOX. Thats just a fact.
Gingrich revealed hes been invited by CNN to one of their tables at an upcoming political correspondents dinner. The only press events I go to are interesting dinners when the wife insists on it, so were going to go to the White House Correspondents dinner because she wants to. And were actually going to go to CNNs table, not FOX.
Fox News terminated its contracts with Gingrich and with Rick Santorum last May when both missed a deadline to inform Fox News if they were entering the GOP race. Both eventually did get in. Just yesterday we reported on Santorums future since bowing out, and how it will likely not include a return to Fox News.

Newt tells like we know it IS!
Equally biased I would say.
LOL. He’s done with Fox.
You will enjoy this!
It’s not like that conclusion required much observation or deductive reasoning; that was evident from the start.
I used to watch Fox. Now I watch them all and even then I find the blended USA news as mostly biased and controlled by the media interests. We get only what they want us to get and they omit what they don’t want us to know. They have an agenda that is not especially beneficial to a clued in electorate. Fox has lost their scruples in the UK and it has carried over to the USA.
This is so true. I don’t watch faux anymore.
Government governs, but the media wields the power. The media runs the show
Looks like I won’t be seeing much of Newt. I rarely watch CNN.
I did suggest Newt for Romney’s Space Czar, to liaison with the private aerospace industries, etc.
I don't watch Fox.
I think Newt and Romney have the same chances of holding elected office this time around.
“And were actually going to go to CNNs table, not FOX.”
I love it and that is just one more reason that I really like this guy.
WOO-HOO!!! GO NEWT!
God bless and Keep you!
God bless and Keep Newt too!
I will admit that i watch less of FOX this year except for Hannity. However, I have not watched CNN, CBS and the other alphabet stations in years. I notice that Oh’Really has more libs on than conservatives which is the reason I don’t watch the lib stations. Why can’t we hear from more conservatives on FOX?
Fox News lost the right to be called ‘fair and balanced’ once Murdock allowed Muslim money into the organization.
