Conservative Twitter Is Furious with Fox News’ ‘Softball’ Hillary Interview


When Hillary Clinton sat down for a highly-anticipated joint interview with Fox News anchors Bret Baier and Greta Van Susteren Tuesday evening, the cable news network’s viewers were likely ready for some sort of epic showdown. And while Baier and Van Susteren certainly grilled Clinton on topics like the 2012 attack in Benghazi and the release of five Taliban detainees in exchange for U.S. Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, it apparently did not live up to viewer expectations.

A look at the #HillaryFoxNews hashtag, promoted by the network for reactions on the interview, reveals that most viewers think Baier and Van Susteren went way too easy on the former secretary of state. The general consensus seems to be that Fox gave Clinton a bunch of “softballs.”

Below are some highlights:

There’s a lot more where that came from on Twitter. What do you think, did they go too easy on her?
