Fox Fires Back at Gingrich: ‘Bitter’ Newt is ‘Auditioning for a windfall of a gig at CNN’

Fox News is not taking Newt Gingrich‘s excoriation of the network’s coverage of the GOP primary as a mere swipe and moving on. Did you expect them to?

On Wednesday Gingrich told a Tea Party group in Delaware that, “CNN is less biased than Fox this year,” adding, “We are more likely to get neutral coverage out of CNN than we are of FOX, and we’re more likely to get distortion out of FOX. That’s just a fact.”

A Fox News spokeswoman tells Yahoo! News‘s Dylan Stableford, “This is nothing other than Newt auditioning for a windfall of a gig at CNN — that’s the kind of man he is.”

“Not to mention, he’s still bitter about the fact that we terminated his contributor contract.”
