Greta Van Susteren doesn’t mind criticism. But she does mind journalists critiquing her interviews without the benefit of a phone call.
“Had Spayd called me, she wouldn’t have to read this,” Van Susteren tells TVNewser, previewing a GretaWire post she wrote (read after the jump).
Greta is referring to a critical piece written by former Washington Post managing editor Elizabeth Spayd. Spayd criticized several journalists, including Van Susteren, for their interviews with former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson last week.
Spayd wrote Van Susteren focused too much on transparency in the Obama administration at the expense of going in-depth about Abramson’s firing. As we reported last week, Van Susteren did in fact ask Abramson about her firing. And Greta pointed that out this afternoon while calling out Spayd for not adhering to “journalism 101.”
