If Hillary Clinton is to become president, she’ll have to persevere against more critical coverage coming from outlets like Fox News — and new emails released Wednesday might make that even tougher.
Emails from her private account as Secretary of State include an exchange Clinton had with a family friend over the first appearance on the network by a mutual friend, Massachusetts state legislator Hank Naughton.
“Yeah for Hank! Maybe he will become a regular,” Clinton wrote. “Those shows need at least one sane realistic voice.” Torrey replied, “Yep, especially certain Fox personalities.”
Fox News famously got a ratings boost when President Obama’s White House went after them, so it’s likely viewers will be seeing a lot of coverage over Clinton’s slight of the network.
Fox News did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
