Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Defense Secretary Robert Gates made the rounds this morning talking about the ongoing conflict in Libya. However, one place they did not stop to chat was on Fox News Sunday. Host Chris Wallace noticed the snub and did not take it lying down.
“Of course w? wanted t? g?t th? White House view ?n Libya, however th?? ?h??? t? offer Secretary of State Clinton ?n? Defense Secretary Gates t? ABC, CBS ?n? NBC, but n?t t? Fox. Despite the fact that we routinely have more viewers than two of those Sunday shows, the Obama team felt no need to explain to the millions of you who watch this program and Fox News why they have sent U.S. servicemen and women into combat. We thought you’d like to know.”
Given that Gates and Clinton did not appear on CNN‘s State of the Union, it does not appear that this was an intentional boycott of Fox this time around. Yet Wallace was still not happy, and was not shy about sharing his displeasure.
