Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina bashed Fox News to its face Thursday for its recent coverage of Donald Trump, claiming they do so to the exclusion of all other candidates.
Near the tail end of an interview with Fox News Channel’s Bill Hemmer describing what led to her decision to endorse Sen. Ted Cruz for president, Fiorina dropped a loaded mini bomb.
At about the 4:50 mark, she told Hemmer that Republican presidential front-runner “Donald Trump has got to be beaten fair and square,” but that news media played a hand in preventing that from happening.
“Last Tuesday night Fox News cut . . . and every other network to be fair, cuts to a full hour of Donald Trump live,” she told Hemmer. “And basically doesn’t even mention that Ted Cruz beat [Ohio Gov.] John Kasich in Michigan, or that Ted Cruz won in Idaho,” and that the Texas Republican continues winning delegates.
“I guess the media has (sic) decided who the nominee is,” she concluded.
“In all fairness, Ted Cruz did not hold a speech on Tuesday night,” Hemmer replied. “Had he, we certainly would have carried at least part of it.”
With attitude in hand, Fiorina made sure she had the last word on the matter.
“Yeah, but I guess I sort of assumed that the surprise of Ted Cruz inching out Kasich in Michigan was actually news, apparently it wasn’t,” she snipped.
Late last month, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich also complained to the network about too much Trump.
“Look, you could say that Trump is the candidate ‘Fox & Friends’ invented,” he said on “Fox & Friends.” “He was on your show I think more than any other show.”
