Rick Santorum accused Fox News of “shilling” for Mitt Romney during an interview with Fox’s Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday morning.

SANTORUM: The man has had a ten-to-one money advantage

He’s had all the organizational advantage. He has Fox News shilling for him every day — no offense, Brian, but I see it — and yet, he can’t seal the deal because he just doesn’t have the goods to be able to motivate the Republican base and win this election.

Kilmeade defended his network, saying Romney’s campaign team answered interview requests, and that he had tried to get Santorum on his show for at least three and a half months, with no response.

KILMEADE: I’ve just got to take you on Fox News shilling for Mitt Romney, 24 hours a day, I totally disagree with that. You can feel the way you want, I’m just telling you there’s no way I agree with that.

Sure, Santorum may be a bit whiny, and obviously Kilmeade is going to defend his employer and coworkers, but it is definitely noteworthy when a Republican presidential candidate calls a right wing media outlet out for their obvious bias.
