Greta Van Susteren was up in arms on Wednesday about a Daily Beast story which alleged that she had joked about Secretary of State Clinton's concussion.

Clinton recently sustained a concussion the week before she was scheduled to speak in Congress about the Benghazi attack, and her testimony was postponed. Several Fox News personalities and guests suggested that Clinton was trying to avoid testifying. A Daily Beast story initially reported that Van Susteren said that Clinton had had an "immaculate concussion."

The Daily Beast later corrected the story, explaining that it was Laura Ingraham who made the remark in question.

Before that though, Van Susteren hit back in a blog post. "SHAME ON THE DAILY BEAST and LAUREN ASHBURN AND TINA BROWN’s EDITORS – I NEVER, NEVER, NEVER SAID THIS (in fact, I spoke out to the OPPOSITE RIGHT HERE ON GRETAWIRE!)" she wrote.

Van Susteren defended Clinton and spoke out against her colleagues' remarks in December. ""I don’t agree with any of my FNC colleagues or anyone else who is a tad bit sarcastic on our air about Secretary Clinton’s health," she wrote at the time.

In a later post on Wednesday, Van Susteren wrote, "I just called Tina Brown and told her to fix that NOW — I told her I was furious — she hung up on me."
