“I watch CNN, they’re not fucked up like Fox,” Barkley tells Ben Grossman. “They are a mouthpiece for the Republican Party. I watch [Fox] a couple times when there is someone I want to see on there. But they’re corrupt.”
When Grossman asked Barkley if he’s just shilling for Turner (corporate parent of CNN and TNT), Barkley says, “Hell no. I like Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper and John King. They at least try to give both sides.”
A Fox News spokesperson fired back: “It’s hardly a surprise that Charles is a shill for a Turner owned network…He obviously needs the steady paycheck to pay off his consistent gambling debts.”
