Fox News managing editor Brit Hume defended the substance of Mitt Romney's criticisms of President Obama over the violence in Libya, but said the Republican nominee's remarks were "clumsy" and ill-timed.
"I think what he said was correct but it was clumsy," Hume said on Fox News Sunday. "And it opened him up to charges that he made a terrible mistake. We had an almost ludicrous overreaction in a lot of the media about it, in which what he did became the big story, rather than what was happening over there. Which is not a great moment for our national media."
"He could've waited -- it might've been better if he had."
