Cafferty Unloads On Fox, Cheney

Jack Cafferty gave Fox and Dick Cheney both barrels this afternoon:

BLITZER: What did you make of Dick Cheney’s interview today?

JACK CAFFERTY, CNN ANCHOR: Well, I obviously didn’t see it because it hasn’t been released in its entirety yet. But I would guess it didn’t exactly represent a Profile in Courage for the vice president to wander over there to the f-word network for a sit down with Brit Hume. That’s a little like Bonnie interviewing Clyde, ain’t it? Where was the news conference? Where was the access to all of the members of the media? Whatever.

BLITZER: You still think he needs to do a full-scale news conference and invite all the cameras, all the reporters and ask whatever they want?

CAFFERTY: That’s never going to happen. But running over there to the Fox network. Talk about seeking a safe haven. He’s not going to get any high hard ones from anybody at the f-word network. I think we know that.

Our cousin TVNewser has pulled together Cheney’s interviews over the past couple of years, and he’s actually given as many TV interviews to Fox as he has CNN, although once you throw in the Fox hosts and their radio shows, they can an edge.
