Jim Geraghty makes a great catch over on the Hillary Spot:
Sen. Barack Obama appeared on Fox News’ Special Report with Brit Hume, days after pulling out of a Democratic primary debate sponsored by Fox News.
I’m reminded of what Brit said a few weeks ago when Edwards pulled out of an earlier Fox debate:
He knows, and his people know, that Carl Cameron and Jim Angle and Major Garrett and you Chris in interviews and I as a news anchor on a nightly program are going to continue to treat him in the same fair way that we’ve always treated him, and we must do that. Now, he might get roughed up by some conservative commentators on Fox, but he’ll be defended by liberal commentators on Fox as well. So in the short term, this is probably good politics. In the long term, I have my doubts but that remains to be seen.”
It’s not fair, but there it is.
