This video clip has two newsworthy components. First, Valerie Jarrett attacked Fox News while being interviewed on CNN. Second, CNN’s Campbell Brown actually had the integrity to call her on it.
Brown: Do you think Fox News is biased?
Jarrett: Of course they’re biased. (laughs)
Brown: Well, do you also think MSNBC is biased?
Jarrett: Well, you know what? This is…this is the thing. I don’t want to generalize and say Fox is biased or another station is biased. I think what we want to do is to look at it on a case-by-case basis. And when we see a pattern of distorition, were going to be honest about that pattern of distortion.
Brown: But you only see that at Fox News. That’s all that you’ve spoken out about.
Jarrett: That’s actually not true.
Well, yes, Ms. Jarret, that actually is true. Fox is the only network you’ve criticized and the only one you’re likely to criticize. Criticizing MSNBC would be like eating your own young.
Kudos to Campbell Brown. The “are you friggin’ kidding me” look on her face during the interview pretty much says it all.
