Klein: FNC Enjoyed Repeating Obama Rumor “Without Bothering To” Check The Facts

The pull quotes from the NYT’s recap of the Fox/Obama/CNN flare-up:

Jon Klein says Fox News did “seem to relish repeating the Insight-reported rumor without bothering to — or being able to — ascertain the facts.”

parisjan23.jpgFox doesn’t react to Klein or defend its broadcasts. Instead, it responds to Anderson Cooper‘s comment about “the difference between talking about news and reporting it,” saying CNN was mainly looking for publicity by attacking its higher-rated rival.

FNC spokesman Irena Briganti calls it “yet another cry for attention by the Paris Hilton of television news, Anderson Cooper.”
