Both Fox News Channel and “On the Record” host Greta Van Susteren came under fire for the special “Meet the Trumps” presentation Thursday night, in which family members of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee were interviewed.
But Van Susteren offered the same special under the same format to Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
Critics of the hour-long special claimed that the host didn’t ask tough enough questions.

Possibly feeling the sting of her critics, Van Susteren offered this insight, and her fans came to her support:
We offered same special to Clinton and Sanders campaign that we are doing now w/ @realDonaldTrump but no reply

Fox News moderators were criticized for asking questions that were too tough; now the network is under fire for asking questions that weren’t tough enough? Sometimes you just can’t win.
