Bachmann reads, watches liberal news first


What does Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann flip on first to catch up with the news cycle? If you guessed Fox News, you'd be wrong.

Bachmann spoke at a luncheon at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, Thursday and said her daily news media diet begins with a hearty helping of liberal. Politico reports:

Asked about whether the media has been fair to her, Bachmann didn’t take the bait, saying she “knew it would be tough” when she decided to run and that growing up with three brothers prepared her for the rough-and-tumble of politics.

For news, she said she goes first to outlets she considers liberal to see what they’re saying. She cited MSNBC, The Huffington Post and The Daily Beast.

The Minnesota native also threw out this surprise: She voted for Jimmy Carter the first time he ran for president. She said, however, that after seeing his policies in effect, she became a conservative.
