CNN host Ashleigh Banfield rips Fox’s ‘Outnumbered’: It’s ‘not as smart’ as my show
CNN’s Legal View anchor Ashleigh Banfield bashed Fox News’ Outnumbered on Tuesday when a viewer asked why she wasn’t watching the show, CNN Commentary reports.
“Why are you not watching Outnumbered?” she said. “Because it’s not as smart as this show, guys. That’s just the way it is.”
“I mean, you can have coffee clash and chat about stories, or you can learn stuff from smart folk, and you’re look at two of the smartest ones right there.”
The two shows on the rival networks are direct competitors in the noon EST time slot.
Banfield took the question through Periscope live-streaming, an app used on the show to take questions from viewers and often capture off-air banters with guests. Banfield has taken to using the app to promote her show on Twitter.
