Newt Called out Fox News for Romney Kool aid. Then CNN invited him to the Correspondent's dinner because you know the ditz at Fox are upset he won't drop out.

Is that because Karl Rove is Fox's lead political pundit?

I think FOX has been for Romney all the way through

I felt the same way. Newt got the shaft.

Faux News (Yes, I'm using that liberal pejorative) jumped the shark during Hurricane Katrina, and has never jumped back. Freepers who continue to believe that they are on "our" side are fooling themselves.

Yes, they are better than CNN/et al, but that isn't saying much, now is it.

“I think FOX has been for Romney all the way through,”

I think he is right.

I got news for ya Newt, CNN’s ratings are lower than MSNBC’s, which is lower than FNC’s, they have been for a while. Good luck being seen over there.

The Fox News response was particularly brutal:

This is nothing other than Newt auditioning for a windfall of a gig at CNN — that’s the kind of man he is. Not to mention, he’s still bitter about the fact that we terminated his contributor contract.

I think it's safe to say Newt probably won't be a commentator on Fox News again anytime soon.

Originally I expected Newt to get a fair shake from Fox, owing to his earlier connections there as an analyst. But they treated him like crap. Santorum, too. And before that, Palin (always headlining negative stories/polls; ignoring positive speeches/postings/polls, etc).

FoxNews became Romney-cheerleading headquarters. And I’ve bid them adios as a viewer, after a rock-steady 15 years of watching. Been quite an ‘altering’ campaign season... given up on FoxNews, stopped going to Drudge, now ignore Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck, etc. Heck, I think Romney might even manage to kill off my 30-year-long status as a ‘news-junkie’ altogether. Not much point in even following things anymore.

Newt's got my vote if he makes it as far as the CA primary, but I'm afraid he's barking at the moon at this point.

But I agree that FNC is becoming RINO central. If Murdoch wants his network to stay on top he'd better do something about that.

CNN doesn’t care who gets the nomination, so they will play sort of fair until the general, when they will destroy whoever it is, in favor of 0bama.

Yeah, FOX is pimping for Romney. It is obvious. I’m not a Newt fan, but he sucks less than the one the GOP Elitist Establishment wants.

The only thing I am unsure of is if FOX actually wants Romney, or if they want the weakest candidate to face 0bama.

Believe that FOX is at all conservative anymore at your peril.

CNN fair and balanced? LOL! The entire lineup from 6m - 10pm is Team Obama. Newt has jumped the shark.

The All Dem Lineup: Soledaid OBrien, Carol Costello, Kyra Phillips, Susan Malvieux, Don Lemon, Wolf Blitzer, John King, Anderson Cooper, Piers Morgan.

Once again, Newt shows he’ll speak the truth and bow to no one

Once Fox settled on Romney, Newt has been pushed aside. He is the only candidate that can talk details and makes sense. Romney is trying really hard to be a real conservative, but he can’t really come up with an original idea. I’m sick about it, really. Newt is a strategic thinker, but the media has taken charge and assassinated him and given itself the most vulnerable opponent for Obama. Hopefully, Obama will be viewed as so bad that Romney will win anyway. He just reminds me so much of John Edwards and two Americas—Slick good looking, but corrupt to the core. Hope he doesn’t have any love children out there because the etchasketch won’t clear them away. He is a vicious Mormon who has brutally smeared his opposition, but it looks like we are stuck with him.

Newt has a slim chance yet, but all the establishment Repubs all line up for Romney. CNN will pull quite a coup if Newt ends up as a commentator for them. Fox sure has thrown him under the bus. Newt=$2.50/gallon.
