Fox & Friends thought they booked pro-ICE Democratic candidate Ann Kirkpatrick, but called a quick thinking L’Italien staffer instead.
“According to L’Italien’s campaign, however, the mix-up came after a Fox News representative mistakenly called one of L’Italien’s aides on Sunday, seeking to set up an interview with Kirkpatrick.
L’Italien’s aide never corrected Fox News representatives to let them know they had called the wrong person and booked the time slot anyway, the statement said.
“Fox News is where you go when you want to talk to Donald Trump, and Barbara felt she had an obligation to her constituents to take advantage of that opportunity,” her campaign said Monday. “This would not have happened to an actual news station. Fox’s lack of attention to the facts normally is a disaster for the country, it just so happened that today it was embarrassing for them.”
State Senator Barbara L’Italien is running to replace retiring Niki Tsongas.
