BIG STRETCH: FOX NEWS CHANNEL COMPARES ITSELF TO HUNTER S. THOMPSON

HUNTER S. THOMPSON

In its war of words with the White House, Fox News is now comparing itself to the late gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson.

The comparison was made in an opinion piece by Lloyd Green for the Foxnews.com website.

Thompson was famously kicked off Richard Nixon’s campaign plane in 1972 while he was covering the presidential election for Rolling Stone magazine. He wrote about the incident in his book “Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail.”

Thompson was eventually reinstated to the White House press corps, but only after getting Pat Buchanan drunk. Thompson sat the then-White House Communications Director down for “a whole bunch of drinks.”

Green concludes his piece by suggesting a Jack Daniels summit between the White House and Fox News head Roger Ailes.
