On former State Secretary Hillary Clinton's widely seen tweet knocking Fox News during the Super Bowl, New York magazine "writer-at-large" Frank Rich offers this:

[S]he let Rupert Murdoch, Fox News’s proprietor, give her a fundraiser in 2006. So when Hillary Clinton, the prospective presidential candidate of 2016, publicly mocks Fox News on Twitter, it’s yet another of her attempts to repackage herself for the Democratic base by de-accessioning her past concessions to the right on a myriad of issues, much as she tried and failed to airbrush her support of the Iraq War in 2008.

"It’s so much more fun to watch FOX when it’s someone else being blitzed & sacked!" Clinton tweeted Sunday during the game, which was carried by Fox (the network, not the cable news channel).
