Gretchen Carlson found herself in the middle of an awkward interview yesterday morning on “Fox And Friends” when a young man she was speaking to about the upcoming election suddenly got very casual and began joking around.

Max Rice told Raw Story that he had answered a call from the show for recent college graduates who were unemployed and looking to vote for Mitt Romney, and that he did it to prove that Fox News is a “fake news organization”.

“They were just casting a part in a show,” he said. “They were so stupid… I’m a kid messing around.”

Carlson should have probably known something was up when Rice greeted her with a casual, “Hello Miss USA, it’s an honor. I wish I could see you.” Carlson was actually Miss America.

When asked about his belief in Obama’s promise for “hope and change”, Rice said he had been all about Obama because he’d “met him when he was little”. He then insisted the only reason he was voting for Romney was because he’s lost a basketball wager.

Carlson then began the accusations that Rice wasn’t taking the interview seriously, and the whole thing went steadily downhill. Rumors are going around that Rice is actually a comedian who wanted to make Fox News look foolish, but so far the only thing that’s been dug up on him is this video:

    Methinks he obviously has too much time on his hands, and that there should be more important “news” to occupy ours.

  • Scott Catherine

    Gretchen Carlson tried to do an honest professional interview of a supposed “college grad”, not a put in Romney plant. Rice just makes an ass out of himself. If anything it proves Fox News is LEGIT. If it was MSNBC they would put an Obama trained seal who’d be reading from an Obama scripted teleprompter.

    I saw the interview and the young man came through as a moronic and profoundly immature tweener. No wonder he doesn’t have a job.

  • ray mowery

    This is an excellent example, and concrete proof, of how great and legitimate Fox News actually is! They took this man at is word, and then could not stop him from “self-destructing!” Nothing our of context. Nothing edited. And she did not cut him off – Fox believes in/supports free speech.

    He was probably fondling himself during the “interview.”

  • Swanny

    I don’t see this as a big deal. FOX News is kind of a joke.

  • Emmitt Smith

    Just shows the lack of thoroughness of fox news. They put a joker on who they think fits the fox narrative and ends up making them look foolish.

    Clown news organization.
