NEW YORK, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made an apparent dig at the Fox network in a Twitter post during the Super Bowl.

"It's so much more fun to watch FOX when it's someone else being blitzed & sacked! #SuperBowl," Clinton posted from @HillaryClinton.

While nothing specific was mentioned, the post was interpreted as a reference to Fox News Channel's coverage of Clinton, such as the ongoing controversy stemming from the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in which Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other diplomatic employees were killed nearly 18 months ago, ABC News reported.

Her post came several hours after President Obama had a heated exchange with Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly over the network's coverage of his administration. In the pre-game interview, O'Reilly questioned Obama on the attack on the consulate and the IRS scandal, in which the IRS was accused of going after Tea Party organizations seeking tax-exemption status. The president said such stories have been drummed up by Fox News.

"These kinds of things keep on surfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them," the president said.
