Perino: Is Obama WH Ignoring Kate Steinle’s Death Only Because Fox Is Covering It?

perinoMegyn Kelly really went after the Obama administration last week for not issuing any statements on the death of Kate Steinle at the hands of an illegal immigrant in San Francisco. And today Kelly was still hammering away at the White House for its silence, when they weighed in publicly on local cases when it came to Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Freddie Gray.

She brought on Dana Perino and asked the former White House press secretary if it’s a “conscious decision” to ignore this national story.

Merino did think of one reason they’d be ignoring it, a reason she was “troubled by.”

“Because Fox News has been willing to cover this story,’ she surmised, “for some reason they believe that because they hate Fox News so much that it is okay for them to ignore this story because that’s just right-wing crazy people.”

Merino said just a simple phone call would have been so easy, but it hasn’t been done yet.
