On Fox and Friends today, (Watch HERE) Clinton surrogate and Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell had some high praise for Fox News Channel.
"I think during this entire primary coverage, starting in Iowa and up to the present, Fox has done the fairest job, and remained the most objective of all the cable networks," Rendell said. "You hate both of our candidates — no, I’m only kidding. But you actually have done a very balanced job of reporting the news, and some of the other stations are just caught up with Senator Obama, who is a great guy, but Senator Obama can do no wrong, and Senator Clinton can do no right."
This pro-Fox rapture comes after several steps the Clinton camp has made to work with conservative media, including:
Breaking bread with Richard Mellon Scaife;
Sending out an anti-Obama piece from the American Spectator;
Sending out a defense of Bill Clinton from the National Review;
Cozying up to Rupert Murdoch; and
Establishing an emissary to reach out to Matt Drudge.
It also comes after a Clinton jihad against MSNBC a few weeks ago, as you may recall.
Though you may also recall the Democratic boycott of a Fox News Channel debate last year.
What do you make of all this?
