Hillary Clinton Mocks Fox During Super Bowl

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton burned the Fox network in a tweet during Super Bowl XLVIII Sunday night.

“It’s so much more fun to watch FOX when it’s someone else being blitzed & sacked!” Clinton wrote.

Fox aired the NFL championship, and its cable news channel has been less than kind to Clinton when covering her role in the State Department’s response to the 2012 attacks on an American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill told CNN that the tweet was “100% humor.”
