Newt Gingrich, who is still, technically, running for president, blamed Fox News, and Rupert Murdoch in particular, for the failure of his presidential campaign Thursday.  "I think Fox has been for Romney all the way through," the former Fox employee said during a private meeting with Tea Party leaders in Delaware. "In our experience, Callista and I both believe CNN is less biased than Fox this year. We are more likely to get neutral coverage out of CNN than we are of Fox, and we're more likely to get distortion out of Fox. That is just a fact." He assumes this distortion can be blamed on Murdoch's affinity for Mitt.
