Newt Gingrich often made political hay during the GOP presidential debates by bashing the mainstream media. But in a meeting this week with Delaware tea party officials, Gingrich said that CNN was more “fair and balanced” than Fox News. “In our experience, Callista and I both believe CNN is less biased than Fox this year,” Gingrich said. “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.” Gingrich claimed that Fox favored Romney over him and the other GOP candidates. “I assume it’s because (owner and CEO Rupert) Murdoch at some point said, ‘I want Romney,’ and so ‘fair and balanced’ became ‘Romney,’” Gingrich said. A Fox News spokeswoman speculated that Gingrich was auditioning for a job at CNN.
