Did Cheney seek 'safe haven' by talking to Fox?

Would you want to face the harsh questioning of CNNs' Larry King?

Via Drudge:

"Now that he feels forced to talk, he wants to restrict the discussion to a friendly news outlet, guaranteeing no hard questions from the press corps," Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., said in a statement.

On CNN, commentator Jack Cafferty called the interview "a little bit like Bonnie interviewing Clyde. ... I mean, running over there to the Fox network -- talk about seeking a safe haven."

John O adds:


If my recollection is correct, Brit Hume recounted for the audience an encounter he'd had with a reporter earlier in the day. The reporter asked him about Cheney's reasoning for choosing Fox news to conduct the interview. Hume replied that Fox had largest audience of all the cable news channels. He also expressed skepticism that the reporter would ever broadcast that sound bite.
