McCain: Fox News is 'schizophrenic'
By HADAS GOLD | 7/31/13 8:58 AM EDT
In a wide-ranging interview with The New Republic, Sen. John McCain called Fox News "schizophrenic" and spoke about his conversations with Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes about immigration.
"I think that Fox News is a bit schizophrenic," the Arizona Republican said in response to a question posed by Isaac Chotiner about how immigration reform is protrayed on Fox News. "I saw a guy on Hannity, maybe Huckabee, and the guy said, You know, the Chinese are coming across our border, and they are going to commit cyber attacks.
"They have to cross the border to do that?" Chotiner asked.
"Honest to God! 'They are going to commit cyber attacks,' McCain said.
When asked what Ailes and Murdoch say about whether the Republican party can "come along" on the issue, McCain said Murdoch is a supporter and Ailes is a realist.
"It is well known that Rupert Murdoch is a strong supporter of immigration reform. Roger Ailes is also a realist. He believes that immigration reform is vital to the country first, but also the GOP," McCain said.
But despite being a realist, Ailes does "not dictate" on the issue, McCain said, noting that Fox News host Sean Hannity has come out against the issue "and kept his job."
"I dont think Roger Ailes is ham-fisted," McCain said.
McCain also blasted Katie Couric for "shredding" Sarah Palin.

The POS needs to be packed up and sent back to NVN with the Vietnamese being told that they should have kept him and we won’t take him back this time.
He should have retired in the late 1980s.
The left’s useful quisling.
He sure is getting a lot of media attention of late; even more than usual. I wonder what’s going on with that.
He really believes he is the new voice of the GOP.
I used to think he was just stupid.
There is more here than meets the eye.
McCain please just shut up.
You made Arizona proud, for a while. You did one or two good things, including picking Sarah Palin.
Stop while you are ahead.
Do why did the GOP nominate him for President?
The same reason they are called “The Stupid Party.”
He's not a traitor - he's a retard. Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence. He graduated at the bottom of his class. He was a reverse ace, losing 5 of his planes, one to hostile fire. McCain is Forrest Gump without the positive outcomes for other people.
The problem is that he won’t shut up. He’s as big a narcissist as Il’Douchebag.
I have never believed that HE selected Palin, I think she was pushed on him and he proceeded to ignore her for the rest of the campaign.
Looks like 0 has been pulling out NSA transcripts (complete with phone conversations, texts and emails) and reading them aloud to Repubs and RINO’s a lot lately...
This clown is increasingly psychotic.
