CNN's Carol Costello Takes A Shot At Fox News Site For Calling Shutdown A 'Slimdown'

Posted: Updated:

CNN's Carol Costello criticized the Fox News website for calling the government shutdown a "slimdown."

The site has persisted in its unique choice of descriptor, even contradicting the network's actual television coverage.

"Tell that to the roughly 800,000 federal workers going home without a paycheck," Costello said on Wednesday. While Congress continues to play politics with their jobs and continues to make money, I'm not so sure they would consider this a 'slimdown.'"
