Not A Shocker: Sen. Joe Lieberman Is A Fox And Murdoch Fan

You don't have to sit down for this one. Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT), who supported the Iraq war and the candidacy of John McCain and opposed the public health care option and Medicare expansion (after previously supporting the latter) is a big fan of Fox News and Rupert Murdoch. It's also not surprising that he shares this taste with Dick Cheney, who required that the television of any hotel room he stayed in be tuned to Fox. Lieberman made his comments to Don Imus:

Lieberman: Incidentally, I heard last night, I was watching CNN and Joe Jones was on and he was doing the 10 o’clock news show and he said that CNN had been offered these documents by WikiLeaks or a third party, but had turned it down because they refused to sign a pledge granting the source anonymity, which the Times did. And I give CNN and whoever else turned it down credit for doing that. The New York Times’ hands are dirty in this and they should have said ‘no.’

Imus: I hate CNN and I wish you hadn’t brought that up.

Lieberman: I’m sorry about that! It just happened. But of course, really, Fox Business is my favorite and Fox generally, anything Rupert Murdoch owns. (h/t: Think Progress)
