How Dare Cheney Speak Only To FOX!

Apparently my favorite Senate Democrat, Charles Schumer, doesn't think Cheney's interview with FOX News is good enough. Here's the statement just released from Schumer's office:

"Doing an exclusive interview with any single news organization is not enough.  The Vice President hasn’t had a press conference in three and a half years and he ought to have one to clear the air not only on this issue, but more importantly on the many other issues that have been shrouded by a veil of secrecy.  The press corps and American people deserve answers, not avoidance from this Administration."

One single news organization is not enough! I doubt Schumer would say that if the interview was with the New York Times. By the way, does the fact that FOX News has higher ratings than CNN, CNBC, and MSNBC combined count at all?  Cheney could have really kept the American public in the dark by going on Hardball.
