Are you ready for the half-hour Fox News/Hillary Clinton interview?

posted at 5:21 pm on May 29, 2014 by Allahpundit

Finally, she and Hannity will get to hash out their differences face to face.

No no, kidding. It’s Greta Van Susteren and Bret Baier who’ll be interviewing her.

“The joint half-hour interview will cover an array of topics, including Clinton’s forthcoming book,’ ‘Hard Choices,’ the upcoming 2016 presidential election and the 2012 attacks on Benghazi,” the release stated.

Clinton’s interview will air Tuesday, June 17, starting at approximately 6:45 p.m., straddling Baier’s show “Special Report” and Van Susteren’s show “On the Record.”

Coincidentally, Politico reported last night that Team Hillary has been huddling over how to manage its message on Benghazi, replete with participation in a listserv among Democrats devoted to the new select committee. Clintonworld mouthpiece Philippe Reines is set to brief Third Way, a group of centrist Dems, on Benghazi and other national security issues tomorrow. Quoth one attendee, “With national security issues taking up more oxygen right now — the president’s speech at West Point, the Benghazi hearings — there are a lot of Democrats who understand that this is our window to control the narrative.” Part of controlling that narrative, I take it, is sending Hillary herself into the lion’s den to face 10-15 minutes of questioning on Benghazi from Fox’s most respected hard-news anchor. Once she gets through it, she’s got an easy comeback when she’s pressed on the topic in the future: “Of course I have nothing to hide. Would I have gone on Fox News to take the heat if I did?” It’s a way to put Benghazi behind her, sort of.

Three questions, though. One: Why do this before the select committee has held its hearings? If she says something to Bret and Greta that ends up being contradicted by the evidence produced by Trey Gowdy and company, she’s in trouble. She’d better be awfully well prepared. Two: Is she doing exclusives with other news outlets to push her new book? I assume there’s an interview coming at MSNBC, if only to signal to lefties that she’s interested in their concerns too. Her problem is that there are no big-name hard-news people a la Van Susteren and Baier left at that network. All the usual suspects — Maddow, Hayes, Matthews — are loud-and-proud ideologues who might give her a harder time from the left than she’s bargaining for. She’d probably be okay (or more than okay) with Lawrence O’Donnell. Or what about Ronan Farrow? He used to work for Hillary at the State Department, as he’ll happily remind you ad nauseam. He’s not going to throw her any curveballs and I’m sure he’d be thrilled with the publicity for his show.

Three: Why didn’t she choose Megyn Kelly for the Fox interview instead? It would have been super-splashy to have the network’s big new star, arguably the most influential woman in TV news right now, sit down with the would-be first woman president. Kelly wouldn’t have gone easy on her but Greta and Bret won’t either, in which case, why not opt for maximum star power? Signaling sisterhood will, after all, be key to Hillary’s 2016 strategy:

It’s a given in politics today that men will vote more Republican, while women will vote more Democratic. That has consistently been the case for a long, long time. But with Clinton at the top of the ticket, that pronounced split could turn into a chasm.

The Post poll shows that women say they would support Clinton by a striking 61-33 percent. Men, though, say they would back her by a far smaller count of 49-46 percent — within the margin of error. That’s a 25-point gap between Clinton’s margin among women and among men…

What’s perhaps most striking among the new numbers is that the difference lies almost completely among white voters. Non-white men and women are pretty similar when it comes to the former secretary of state, but while 58 percent of white women back Clinton, 54 percent of white men oppose her.

“Gender gap” is actually the wrong way to frame those numbers, since it might be taken to mean that men and women are splitting in roughly equal numbers in opposite directions. Not so. Hillary’s competitive among men, albeit a few points behind, and enjoying an unholy landslide among women. Something dramatic had better happen in the next two years to change that or else all the Benghazi rhetoric in the would isn’t going to stop this train.

While you mull that, via the Free Beacon, here’s what she has to look forward to from her inevitable MSNBC interview.

Update: Hmmmm.

The only way Hillary would have agreed to go on Fox, is if the interview were 100 percent scripted and she had assurances that Bret and Greta would stay on script. No going off the rails on a crazy train and asking her questions about Benghazi.

Still, deserves at least some props for going on an actual media outlet instead of relying on softie interviews with entertainment outlets like, uh, some presidents.

Electrongod on May 29, 2014 at 5:30 PM

The declared misanthrope and misogynist-extraordinaire assumes that there are fools who watch Faux, who’ll fall for her, and she be right.

May she and them all go to Hades. She and obama have lots of blood on their dirty hands.

For her, who’s covered with obama’s chit, to assume that she can “save the land from obama” is preposterous, and only possible with a really stupid people, in the majority.

LASue on May 29, 2014 at 5:35 PM

I give her kudos for meeting with the network, especially for that long. But methinks that this will be the only interview she grants Fox until the election. The only way she wins is if she gets some nice sound bytes that show how evil and mean those crazies at Fox are. She wants to play the innocent fluffy bunny victim role. This could backfire if Greta and Bret aren’t properly prepared.

Wow, Murdoch is starting his campaign for Hillary early.

xblade on May 29, 2014 at 5:49 PM

Lions Den? Are you kidding me??? Murdoch said he supports Hillary for president.

Greta is a Lefty and is looking out for another contract from Ailes and Murdoch, and there is no way she will be tough on Hillary.

O’Reilly has been in the bag for Obama and Hillary as has been FoxNews.

And I guarantee that Hillary came to a deal with Murdoch on the questions that Greta can ask, and how much Hillary will be allowed to filibuster.

The idea that Foxnews is some conservative media operation is a joke. It is an inside the Beltway RINO bastion of crony capitalism

georgealbert on May 29, 2014 at 5:49 PM

It’s a trap. She’ll sit there giving canned non-answers, and then turn around and hork out ads about how she was attacked by the Fox women-haters and racists.

JeremiahJohnson on May 29, 2014 at 5:51 PM

Greta is tight with the Clintons so that is a safe zone. Baier is another matter.

Southernblogger on May 29, 2014 at 5:51 PM

Why do this before the select committee has held its hearings?

becuz she knows what the final verdict after those hearings would be —-not a smidgen of corruption in the Stale Department.
Killery chose Greta because Greta will not ask any hard questions.
If Bret tries to ask hard questions, Killery will start crying and every idiot will call him a sexist .

burrata on May 29, 2014 at 5:51 PM

If Hillary was “serious” about going into the lion’s den, she’d go on Justice with Judge Jeanine. Now that would be a show I’d watch.

Absolutely. Clinton is a non-achiever. Without marrying Bill, she would be nowhere. Fox gives the impression that it’s “fair and balanced”, but at the end of the day, it stands with the prevailing, liberal establishment politics.

Van Susteren’s a joke, softballs will be flying all over that interview. I’ve never been impressed with Baier’s interviews all that much either, only one I can recall as confrontational is the one with Romney.

Rumor has it that this time Hillary is ready for the “what makes you so great” question.

$1000 cash (each) to any Fox employee who can manage to:

1. Overlay a big, red “X” whenever Hillary is alone in a shot
2. Have the crawler scroll with any of the following:
a: #Monica
b: #Benghazi
c: #Foster
d: #Flowers
e: #LIbya
f: #Ivehadastroke

etc…

3. Edit any video to include clips from the Tuzla Dash, anything with Anthony Weiner and her together, and any reference to her firing from the Nixon impeachment proceedings.

TarheelBen on May 29, 2014 at 5:54 PM

She was in the Hillary tank from the get go in 2008 and only switched when Obama got the nod. I think she was also one of the co-founders of that group that urged women to switch to Romney after Obama got the nomination over Hillary.

Which Fox anchor made Bill Clinton lose his mind? And, what was it about? No matter how she’s treated during the interview, Fox’s reputation proceeds them.

She won’t do it without some sort of agreement on what they can ask. No way is she going to give them the gift of thirty minutes of video of her refusing to answer questions and trying to repeatedly change the subject.

Since Greta has been flying to Haiti a lot ( with a camera crew) after that earthquake,
will she ask Killery about her commission from that grand fund for Haiti relief, managed by her husband ? You know the one which the Haitians hate so much because no one knows where all that money went ?
http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304547704579564651201202122

Haitians are angry, frustrated and increasingly suspicious of the motives of the IHRC and of its top official, Mr. Clinton. Americans might feel the same way if they knew more about this colossal failure. One former Haitian official puts it this way: “I really cannot understand how you could raise so much money, put a former U.S. president in charge, and get this outcome.”

Allow me to hazard a guess: While Mr. Clinton was running things for the IHRC, and the U.S. was leading the reconstruction effort, Hillary Clinton was the U.S. Secretary of State, which means that Mr. Clinton was reporting to his wife. Cheryl Mills, Mrs. Clinton’s chief of staff and counselor to the State Department (an adviser and consultant to the secretary), traveled to the country an estimated 30 times in four years. A State Department spokesman told me that “reflected the high priority the United State places on Haiti’s recovery and development.”

Yeah, the group was the PUMAs (Party Unity My Ass), made up of mostly women who were angry at the way the democrat party treated Hillary in 2008. They were all supposed to turn out for McCain, but the group obviously wasn’t large enough to make a difference.

Don’t ask questions about Benghazi, Egypt, Russia. Her handlers will have her prepped with talking points. Go for the TMZ stuff, with a twist. Ask her why she thinks voters found it more important in 2008 to elect the first black president, rather than the first woman president. Ask her if she is more excited to be back in the White House or to be a new grandmother. Ask her why it was important to back Zelaya in Honduras. Ask her how she advised Huma after Weiner’s own sex scandal was exposed. Ask her whether her husband giving her a clean bill of health mean that her doctors determined she doesn’t have the same brain damage as Biden. Ask her if she was a better adviser to Bill than Jarrett is to Obama. Ask her if, after her own experiences with Hillarycare, the failure of Obamacare came as a surprise to her. Ask her if she thinks NSA spying on average Americans could lead to files falling into the wrong hands and being used against them for partisan purposes. Ask her about Sterling and the Clippers. Tell her that the Mac is already back. Ask her whether Obama should be impeached, too, and if not, why not.

A refresher on Killery’s ” achievements” needs atleast 30 hours with no commercial breaks. This 30 min drama on Fox is just a free campaign infomercial for her.
I wonder if Ailes will declare the cost of this interview as campaign contribution to her PAC :)

burrata on May 29, 2014 at 6:47 PM

Three: Why didn’t she choose Megyn Kelly for the Fox interview instead? It would have been super-splashy to have the network’s big new star, arguably the most influential woman in TV news right now, sit down with the would-be first woman president. Kelly wouldn’t have gone easy on her but Greta and Bret won’t either, in which case, why not opt for maximum star power?

Compared to Megyn Kelly, Hillary Clinton is downright ugly, and most viewers would be too busy ogling Megyn Kelly to think about what Hillary might say.

Greta Van Susteren is a tough questioner, but she’s shorter than Hillary and not exactly eye candy, so viewers would concentrate more on what Greta and Hillary say than what they look like. Hillary probably remembers Greta from her CNN days and would be more comfortable with her than with Megyn Kelly.

Exit question: would Hillary ever call Bret Baier “dude”?

Steve Z on May 29, 2014 at 7:04 PM

Initial thoughts:

1) Scripted interview (unlikely on Fox)
2) She’ll latch onto the first question and run down the clock
3) She’ll fall down, suffer a concussion and back out. Hey! It worked once before!
4) All questions will be answered “I don’t recall.”

I’m leaning towards 3 or 4.

GarandFan on May 29, 2014 at 7:12 PM

Greta Van Susteren is a tough questioner

Steve Z on May 29, 2014 at 7:04 PM

Greta has no use for the Obama regime, but trust me, she’s a Hillary fan girl. Greta did a complete softball interview with Hillary on Fox back in 2008.

Now, Bret Baier, different story. He might ask Hillary some difficult questions – and will be sufficiently pilloried by all of the lib media for being sexist and disrespectful.

TarheelBen on May 29, 2014 at 7:14 PM

No. I am not ready. And I will never be ready. Retire already. Go away. Stop it. Die. Please, please, please just die. She is not entitled. Nobody is entitled. She has annoyed us endlessly, now stop it. Fox is out of their minds if they imagine their viewers want 30 seconds of Hillary Clinton. They must be determined to forfeit viewers to even consider it. If I must cancel cable to get that woman out of my ears and off my eyeballs then that is what I will do. If I must must shut down completely to stop the racket then that is what I will do.

There was a time when campaigns lasted a few months before elections, now power is such that campaigns are endless. Endlessly annoying. Endlessly destructive.

Tom McDonald on May 29, 2014 at 8:05 PM

Lion’s den. Ha. She’ll get all the questions before hand to make sure she has a proper response to the “tough” questions” (and Bret Baer might actually giver her a few), and then she’ll direct the discussion towards her favorite cookie recipes and her deeply held Methodist beliefs.

Clinton is pimping a book. Nothing more.

Softball questions or she wouldn’t agree

She’s not running no matter how hard the media pushes her (including FOX)

Three: Why didn’t she choose Megyn Kelly for the Fox interview instead?

That would have been awesome!

Because Megyn would make Hillary look like a hockey puck?

Benghaaaaaazi

Something dramatic had better happen in the next two years to change that or else all the Benghazi rhetoric in the would isn’t going to stop this train.

- Average time between recessions in the post-war era: 6.5 years
- End of last recession: mid-2009
- Historically predicted year of next recession: 2016

Hillary vs. GOP nominee 2016 recession?

As Sean Trende likes to point out, elections are usually determined by the fundamentals.

My dream Fox interviewer for Hillary Clinton?

Sarah Palin.

That dream won’t come true, however. But I would like to see another dream come true, and that is to have them face off in the 2016 debates for President. Hillary’d look like Madame Guillotine, and Palin would look like Miss America. Hillary would come across sounding “old” and “tahhred” and Palin would come across chirpy, happy and empowering. Epic.

I don’t want to hear a single syllable escaping from the depraved maw of this craven heifer. Hillary is a nothing in this world. a simple tool for lucifer. And damn everyone who falls for her deceit.

Those are a couple of tough interviewers. This could be interesting.

I’m guessing that she’s hoping they’ll be on their best polite behavior and let her slide around the really awkward answers. That might work, if she’s very, very careful.

But it’s still risky, for someone who has so very little to boast about, and so very, very much to want to keep quiet.
