In a blog post mostly celebrating former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren bemoaned the state of today’s politics and the news media.
“You would not believe the mean spirited press releases I receive daily from some politicians,” she wrote on Gretawire. “I would be so ashamed if I sent these (or thought as they do) and I don’t think they even realize how nasty they are and thus how painfully ineffective they are at serving our nation because they are too busy insulting each other.”
Of the news media, Van Susteren said “some are up to their eyeballs in it.”
“When some are not saying stupid stuff about each other, they are not working on getting the news … but rather stirring up trouble between politicians,” she wrote. “There is a big difference between being a journalist doing a job and calling yourself a journalist when you are just part of the problem.”
