Ratings Envy? CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield Disses FNC’s “Outnumbered”

During her show preparation on Periscope, CNN Legal View host Ashleigh Banfield was asked why she wasn’t watching Fox News’ Outnumbered, and she took the opportunity to diss the competition:

Cause it’s not as smart as this show, guys. That’s just the way it is. I mean, you can have coffee klatch and chat about stories, or you can learn stuff from smart folk, and you’re looking at two of the smartest ones right there.

It’s no surprise that Banfield isn’t a fan of the Fox News show, as it has been a smash success since its launch a little over two years ago, while her show just limps along.

Apparently viewers think the “smart folk” are on Outnumbered and not Legal View.
