Fred Thompson on "Fox News Sunday."
(CNN) – Presidential hopeful Fred Thompson accused FOX News of being unfairly critical of his White House bid, after anchor Chris Wallace asked the Tennessee Republican Sunday to respond to criticism that he has run a lackluster campaign.
“This has been a constant mantra of Fox, to tell you the truth,” Thompson responded to Wallace on “FOX New Sunday.”
The former Tennessee senator accused FOX of highlighting only the negative analysis offered by the network’s commentators and its own poll to support its conclusion that he is not running a successful campaign.
"For you to highlight nothing but the negative in terms of these polls, and then put on your own guys, who have been predicting for four months, really, that I couldn't do it, you know, kind of skews things a little bit," Thompson said.
The GOP hopeful was speaking directly to conservative commentators Charles Krauthammer and Fred Barnes criticism.
