Roger Ailes Admits White House May Have 'Legitimate Complaints' About Fox News (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

In an interview with National Review's Peter Robinson, Fox News chief Roger Ailes admitted that the White House may have "legitimate complaints" about the way in which Fox News covers them.

Robinson, referencing President Obama's snub of Fox News last September when he appeared on every major Sunday talk show except for Chris Wallace's "Fox News Sunday," told Ailes that the White House is "whining over nothing." Ailes did not agree:

Well, I don't think they're whining over nothing and I think they have -- look, there's legitimate complaints that they could have. And I've had this dialogue with David Axelrod, who I like very much and, there are legitimate areas.

Think Progress lists several examples of Fox News not living up to their "fair and balanced" slogan regarding the White House and President Obama.
