Tom Ricks Turns Down MSNBC: 'You're Just Like Fox, But Not As Good At It'

Journalist Disses MSNBC After Calling Out Fox News

Tom Ricks may have called out Fox News, but it appears that he's not a huge fan of MSNBC either.

The Pulitzer Prize winner recently accused Fox News of "operating as the wing of the Republican Party" during an interview on the network. His appearance lasted about 90 seconds.

Now, add MSNBC to the latest cable news network Ricks has dissed. The Washington Post's Melinda Henneberger reported:

When I talked to him Tuesday, he said yeah, actually, he had had some other TV invites, but we shouldn’t waste too much time clicking around looking for his next appearance: “MSNBC invited me, but I said, ‘You’re just like Fox, but not as good at it.’ They wrote back and said, 'Thank you for your candor.'

Ricks just recently appeared on MSNBC, speaking on "Up With Chris Hayes" on November 18.
