The president was right though.

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace’s colleagues rushed to his defense after President Trump opened fire on him for bad mouthing his administration.

According to the Washington Examiner, Trump wrote, “Just watched Mike Wallace wannabe, Chris Wallace, on @FoxNews. I am now convinced that he is even worse than Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd of Meet the Press(please!), or the people over at Deface the Nation. What the hell is happening to @FoxNews. It’s a whole new ballgame over there!”

Jedediah Bila, a Fox host, quickly shot back at the president saying, “Enough with the 3rd grade name-calling. The news should not be any president’s friend, ally, or buddy. If it bothered you when Obama complained about Fox News, but you’re silent on this complete nonsense, then just stop. Seriously. Enough.”

Then Fox contributor Guy Benson gave his two cents as well, “Chris Wallace is tough and fair. He’s a very skilled, informed, determined questioner. He’s perfectly suited for the job & we’re lucky to have him.”

“He’s the best Sunday show host of his time, and perhaps of all time,” Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume said. You can read the full details of this story here.

  1. CONFUSION REIGNS SUPREME ! ! ! It is just surprising but it is criminal that people. Americans supposedly, will not acknowledge when a leader is more successful than any leader in the history of their nation. Some of these individuals are supposed to be trained in keeping the general public informed with the facts. Facts as they occurred accurately with no twists or turns or personal opinion involved then we will see real journalists not political snake oil salesmen. I was definitely not pleased any day of the Obama administration. His beliefs about the direction our nation should go and mine are definitely totally opposed. I am an old fashioned captalist and he and George Soros wanted to take my country to Socialism and ruin. But I grumbled and fussed but never even on here viciously attacked him or his supporters. His supporters have a right to their own oppinions. but when Hillary ran against a real business man I knew I had had enough lawyers running my country for a lifetime. We really needed someone who listened to the people not some agenda a political party directed. President Trump listened and followed the peoples requests and the most dynamic results happened. . .the requests, (campaign promises or requests) were followed. It seems to me our press should be honest and report the facts good and bad about all candidates of either party all the time like real journalist ! ! !

  2. OUR President’s comments are too abrasive at times for my tastes. Yet I understand his feeling amidst the onslaught of not just erroneous but dishonest reporting.

    At times I just wish we had another cabinet position, Secretary of the Tweet, to protect OUR President from himself.

  3. Wallace is only as tough and fair like a any other ‘dog piler’, jumps on the backs of others, others have dogpiled onto. Media sucks in this manner, Wallace is no different. There used to be day where real “News people’ actually discovered new, News… to talk about.. investigative Journalism was everything, being ‘Fair’ wasn’t the point, being ‘equal’ wasn’t the point, few if any stayed in the business being a ‘dogpiler’ outside the NBC, CBS,ABC National Broadcasters with National propaganda memes.
    Wallace never broke any real stories with real evidence in so many outrages in the last administration.. so now he has reduced himself to opinion as if it is ‘News”.
    Its tough to be called to task and the talking heads utterly refuse to admit when they are wrong, or apologize and most certainly they all will simply not point out failures in other talking heads.. which really defines what they believe their job entails.. completely ignoring massive failures in other talking heads, memes, propaganda, facts and agendas.
    This cannot avoid but indicate what Wallace sees as not his job to keep his industry up to par, he fears his own industry… he is a “dogpiler”.

    • Excellent comment Mike. Wallace is now showing his true colors. Fox news is no longer the “News station” to watch. My family has already switched to another channel that will be kicking the ratings further down the ladder.
