A CNN host yesterday noted that Fox News “has apparently gone out of its way to avoid reporting on its parent company’s troubles.”

Shortly after the comment, the network showed a behind-the-scenes clip from Tuesday of a Fox program dedicated to media criticism, where the hosts asked each other during a commercial break whether they wanted to talk about it.

“I’m not going to touch it,” one replied.

This video is from CNN, broadcast Thursday, July 14, 2011.
