CNN's Brianna Keilar hasn't even interviewed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton yet, and some of the talking heads at Fox News are already convinced that it will be a "softball interview."
The hosts of Fox's "Outnumbered" predicted Tuesday afternoon that the Clinton interview would be a big snoozer, loaded with filler questions about "yoga poses" and what it's like to be a woman.
The Keilar interview will be the first of its kind since Clinton announced her candidacy for president of the United States earlier this year.
"Short of sitting down with [MSNBC host] Chris Matthews I don't know how much easier it's going to get for her," said Fox guest Brad Thor. "You will not see CNN ask her: can you name an accomplishment? Name one thing you did as a senator."
"We know she is not going to ask the tough questions," he added.
Clinton likely won't be asked about the private, unauthorized email server that she used when she served as secretary of state, the panel agreed. They also said it's improbable that Keilar will ask the Democratic frontrunner about her role in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on American facilities in Benghazi, Libya.
Questions are also being raised about CNN's decision to let Keilar to the interview.
On Monday, it was pointed out that the CNN reporter had attended the wedding of Adam Parkhomenko, Clinton's current director of grassroots engagement, and Ready for Hillary deputy operations director Kirby Hoag.
Though there doesn't appear to be a clear conflict of interest, a few journalists, including Mediaite's Andrew Kirell, suggested Monday that full disclosure may go a long way in avoiding claims of media bias.
"One could easily connect the above photograph to Keilar's big interview score and assume the sit-down was secured via friendly connections between the CNN reporter and Clinton aides. The next logical step in that thought process would be to assume unwritten ground rules for what sort of tone and/or questions the reporter can take with her subject," he wrote.
"Keilar may want to avoid any of that and just note for her audience that she is friendly with a top campaign aide, no matter how awkward it may feel to do so. It only takes a few words," he added.
The CNN reporter has yet to comment on her apparent relationship with members of Team Clinton.
