Yesterday National Journal’s Hotline accused “ex-Nixon TV genius” Roger Ailes‘ Fox News network of “downplaying” the Deep Throat story, giving the story “merely minutes of coverage in prime time.” (Many e-mailers and insiders suggested the same thing to me.)
Rush & Molloy have a response from a Fox News: The story led all the network’s shows, a spokesperson says, and besides: “The Hotline is about as relevant as a high school newspaper outside of D.C. So their TV programming advice is of little use to the No. 1 cable news network.”
> Tuesday: “Fox is MIA — they’re barely covering it,” an e-mailer says.
> Update: 2:47pm: “Not surprisingly, perhaps, Fox News paid less attention to the [Deep Throat] revelation than other 24-hour news networks,” Alessandra Stanley writes. “Mr. Bernstein and Mr. Woodward were on CNN but not on Fox. ‘When The Washington Post put them on low-rated cable news networks first, we decided to pass,’ the network’s spokesman, Paul Schur, explained.”
