Fox News has attacked the struggling Republican presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich, after an outburst in which he blamed the network for the failure of his campaign and claimed it was biased in favour of Mitt Romney.
The channel, where Gingrich had a contract before hitting the campaign trail, dismissed the accusations and claimed his criticism of the network was motivated by a desire for a job at rival CNN.
Gingrich’s outspoken criticism of Fox came at a meeting in Delaware on Wednesday with Tea Party activists.
According to the RealClearPolitics website, which was given access to the meeting, Gingrich said: “I think Fox has been for Romney all the way through. In our experience, Callista and I both believe CNN is less biased than Fox this year.
“We are more likely to get neutral coverage out of CNN than we are of Fox, and we’re more likely to get distortion out of Fox. That’s just a fact.”
Fox hit back in a strongly personal attack. In a statement provided to the Guardian, it said: “This is nothing other than Newt auditioning for a windfall of a gig at CNN â€“ that’s the kind of man he is. Not to mention that he’s still bitter about the fact that we terminated his contributor contract.”
