Newt Gingrich Unloads on Fox News in Private Meeting: ‘CNN is Less Biased than FOX this year’

RealClearPolitics had access to a meeting in Dover, Delaware Wednesday held by Newt Gingrich. During the get-together with members of the Delaware Tea Party, Gingrich, a former Fox News analyst, lambasted the channel.

“I think FOX has been for Romney all the way through,” said Gingrich, adding, “Callista and I both believe CNN is less biased than FOX this year. 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.”

Gingrich revealed he’s been invited by CNN to one of their tables at an upcoming political correspondents dinner. “The only press events I go to are interesting dinners when the wife insists on it, so we’re going to go to the White House Correspondents’ dinner because she wants to. And we’re actually going to go to CNN’s table, not FOX.”

Fox News terminated its contracts with Gingrich and with Rick Santorum last May when both missed a deadline to inform Fox News if they were entering the GOP race. Both eventually did get in. Just yesterday we reported on Santorum’s future since bowing out, and how it will likely not include a return to Fox News.
