Barney Frank on Fox News and the 'legitimacy they don't deserve

Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) is wrapping up his final weeks in Congress. In a type of end-of-career profile in the Associated Press, Frank said when he exits the House for good, he'd like to become a regular talking head on TV news.

From the AP:

Look for him soon on a television set near you.

Frank has little interest in hosting his own cable television show but plans to be a regular paid commentator on political programs. When asked for which network, he says he's only begun to narrow the field: "Not Fox," Frank declares with no hint of a smile.

"I have no interest in encouraging people to watch it," he says of Fox News. "They're so overwhelmingly biased that being a voice there a few minutes a week, an hour a week, it lends a legitimacy they don't deserve."

Guess that means no more exchanges like this one.
