Clinton jabs Fox News

Hillary Clinton took a jab of Fox News while watching the Super Bowl on Sunday night.

The former secretary of State and potential presidential candidate said she enjoyed watching Fox “when it’s someone else being blitzed & sacked!”

Democrats have been critical of the news network — and Republicans in Congress — for what they perceive as unfair coverage of the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya, for political purposes.

The attack, which killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, happened during Clinton’s tenure at the State Department. Republicans have lamented that more people have not been held accountable.

President Obama also took a slight shot at Fox News during an interview with host Bill O’Reilly on Sunday while talking about the administration’s public response to the attacks.

“They believe it because folks like you are telling them that,” Obama said when asked to respond to detractors who believe his administration was slow to call the incident a terrorist attack.

“And what I'm saying is that is inaccurate,” Obama continued. “We revealed to the American people exactly what we understood at the time. The notion that we would hide the ball for political purposes when, a week later, we all said, in fact, there was a terrorist attack taking place the day after, I said it was an act of terror — that wouldn't be a very good cover-up.”
