Fox & Friends Praise Gov. Chris Christie

Fox News praised Gov. Chris Christie’s handling of the bridge scandal plaguing his administration as a “lesson in leadership” despite the many lingering questions surrounding his office’s involvement in the story.

Gov. Christie held a nearly two-hour long press conference on January 9 amidst allegations that a four-day traffic jam in Fort Lee, NJ may have been orchestrated by his administration as political retribution. Christie has denied involvement for months, and the story exploded into a full-blown scandal on January 8 when emails and text messages published by a local paper suggested that Christie’s deputy chief of staff Bridget Anne Kelly and a Christie appointee at the Port Authority colluded to close access lanes on the George Washington Bridge to create massive gridlock.

On the January 10 edition of Fox News’ Fox & Friends, co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck praised Christie’s press conference, saying it “really indicated to many what leadership looked like after facing a crisis.”

The Fox hosts went on to argue that the Obama administration could learn a lot from Christie’s “brilliant” response.
