Ann Coulter isn’t buying the idea that Fox News and MSNBC are similar in everything but ideology.

During an appearance on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Live” Wednesday, Coulter pushed back when Morgan tried to suggest that MSNBC and Fox News were “almost exactly the same thing.”

“I don’t have a job so all I do is watch TV,” the conservative columnist said. “If you watch no station but MSNBC, you have no idea what they’re talking about on Fox. On Fox, I promise you they are reporting the Chris Christie scandal — maybe not 24 hours a day like the 9/11 attack.”

“But look, one of the biggest scandals to really harm a Republican presidential candidate — you weren’t here then — but when George Bush first ran and it came out — it was a matter of days before the election — that he had had a drunk driving arrest, weirdly enough for driving too slowly up in Maine home from a country club one time with his parents in the car,” she continued. “In any event, okay, who broke that story? And it hurt him. They looked at the polls. That story hurt George Bush in the 2000 presidential election. Who broke it? Fox News.”

When pressed on her point by Morgan, Coulter elaborated.

“My point is, you’re never going to get a scandal against a Democrat broken by MSNBC. You are never going to get an articulate conservative on MSNBC,” she said. “They have very articulate liberals making the best case on Fox News. You know what they’re talking about on the other stations. It’s just not a closed set of only liberals. You’re allowed to hear conservatives on Fox.”
