On the February 2 edition of Fox News' Special Report with Brit Hume, chief political correspondent Carl Cameron, during a report on speeches by Democratic Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton (NY) and Barack Obama (IL) at the Democratic National Committee winter meeting, said that Clinton's "pledge to take oil company profits and put them into an energy fund" is "an idea not likely to go over well with capitalists." Cameron provided no evidence for his claim that Clinton's plan would "not likely go over well" with those, beyond the oil companies themselves, who believe that a capitalist economy in general is superior to other economic structures -- a proposition that presumably none of the major presidential hopefuls would contest.

From the February 2 edition of Fox News' Special Report with Brit Hume:

CAMERON: Clinton laid out a host of specifics on various issues, including a pledge to take oil company profits and put them into an energy fund, an idea not likely to go over well with capitalists. Obama has been criticized for lacking experience and substance when compared to Mrs. Clinton.
