(Newser) – Seems Dan Savage isn't the only member of the media with whom Rick Santorum has a bone to pick: Even the right-wing media stalwarts over at Fox News have dissed the former Pennsylvania senator's candidacy, he complains today in a radio interview picked up by Mark Halperin of Time. "Bill O'Reilly has refused to put me on his program. As far as he was concerned I wasn't a worthy enough candidate to earn a spot to sit across from him and be on his program." With Iowa's caucuses looming tomorrow, Santorum currently sits in a virtual three-way tie with Ron Paul and Mitt Romney.
