It’s well known that the relationship between the whole of Fox News and the Obama administration has been a contentious one. With the news that the Department of Justice secretly seized the phone records of Associates Press staffers in 2012, Fox News anchor Bret Baier suggested Wednesday night that things may be worse than previously thought.
Responding to a viewer question submitted online as to whether Baier thought it was possible Fox News or other news outlets have been “tapped or looked into,” Baier said yes.
“In fact, the Attorney General told NPR yesterday that he can’t remember how many he’s approved, in that he has turned down some but he can’t remember how many he’s approved,” Baier said. “That suggests that there are numerous. So, yes, I do think there are other outlets who have experienced the same thing, but we don’t know which ones.”
