F&F Bashes Burton Back

Sex sells: White House rails! After Fox News reported that the White House had given out a sex chat phone number accidentally to journalists for an “on-the-record briefing call with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton…to discuss the NATO summit,” Deputy White House Press Secretary Bill Burton was not amused. He acerbically asserted, “A corrected phone number on a press release is probably one of the stupider things FOX News has covered lately.”

Today Fox & Friends hit back. In the show’s first segment, F&F co-anchor Gretchen Carlson stated, “I think it’s totally immature what he said.” Co-host Steve Doocy declared, “Well, Bill, get the number right in the first place and we won’t talk about it!” Carlson continued, “We always commented during the campaign about how nice he was to come on our show, and [sic] how young he was, and how successful he was to have that position but this is an immature line: He’s showing his age by saying a comment like that!”

Later, in the final hour during Geraldo Rivera’s weekly program promo, Steve brought up the issue again. Of Geraldo, Gretch asked, “Why does he [Burton] have to be immature like that?” Geraldo responded, “It’s surly, it’s gratuitous, [and] it’s a cheap shot.”

Fox & Friends or Fox & Fiends? Carpe Diem reports: You decide.
