Instead of housing the interview the YouTube now carries the message:
"This video has been removed at the request of copyright owner Fox News Network, LLC because its content was used without permission."
Media commentator Jeff Jarvis was quick to condemn the act, in a posting to Buzzmachine titled 'Idiots', he wrote:
"FoxNews takes the Bill Clinton interview down from YouTube. Fools. They would be getting a whole new audience. They'd be even more part of the conversation.
"At the otherwise numbing panel I went to this morning, that interview was raised by a young person - in the audience, not on the panel - as an example of real conversation on TV, not packaged and faked balance. She saw it on YouTube. Now she can't. Foolish, foolish Fox."
