Weekend Watchdog Wrap-Up

Bill Scher

Fox News Sunday fails in the eyes of the Watchdog, going 0-for-3 in its interview of McCain adviser and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.

There were no questions about McCain’s health care plan, no questions about Fiorina belief that offshoring American jobs should be considered “right-shoring,” and no questions about how she “parked cash” overseas for Hewlett-Packard to avoid paying corporate taxes.

What questions were asked by host Chris Wallace instead?

‘Fiorina is a quick study. Listen to how she deals with economic questions about McCain.”

OK, that’s not really a question.

“How painful was that?” Being fired by Hewlett-Packard that is.

And finally, “I don’t have to tell you there is more and more talk about you as a possible vice presidential running mate … Is it flattering to be mentioned?”

Perhaps only in the world of Fox News could a fired CEO with no record of public service who supports the offshoring of American jobs be seriously considered as vice-presidential material.
