Fox & Friends Very Impressed ‘Mainstream’ AP Asked Tough Clinton Question

On Thursday morning, the hosts of Fox & Friends posed the question of how tough the “mainstream media” would be on hypothetical 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and praised Matt Lee, State Department correspondent for the Associated Press — “the definition of mainstream” — for asking a tough question at a State Department briefing, the one that led to State Department Press Secretary Jennifer Psaki being unable to name an accomplishment of Clinton’s.

“They were tough on [Clinton] against Barack Obama, remember?” co-host Brian Kilmeade posed.

“Because the mainstream media wanted Barack Obama elected,” co-host Steve Doocy said. “If the choice is between Hillary and a Republican, whose side do you think mainstream media will be on?”

“But the AP is the definition of mainstream,” Kilmeade added, “and he did ask a good question. Maybe that’s a good sign.”

“Let’s keep our fingers crossed,” Doocy said.
