Chris Wallace: Media Bias 'Astonishing'
NewsMax.com ^ | 16 October 2005 | Carl Limbacher

Posted on 10/16/2005 5:40:36 AM PDT by Alas Babylon!

"Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace said Friday that since leaving the mainstream networks behind to join Fox he's noticed an "astonishing" amount of biased reporting on the part of his former colleagues.

"I came from the mainstream media and I didn't used to feel this way," Wallace told WRKO Boston radio host Howie Carr.

In radio interviews he does to promote his Sunday broadcast, Wallace said, the questions he gets are almost always slanted against the Bush administration.

Wallace doesn't come across "fair and balanced" himself when he interviews conservatives on his Sunday show. And, he bends over backwards to protect the DemocRATS. I don't trust him at all.

Our local Hispanic population is probably 90% conservative. Why? I know it's wrong to generalize but I'm too damned old to change. Anyway . . . the Hispanics I've been exposed to in my 52 West-Texas, Redneck years are . . .

1. . . . strongly pro-family.
2. . . . devout Catholics.
3. . . . proud, hard working, and have latched on to the American Dream with an inspirational passion. I know of seven of the children who graduated from high school here. All had straight A's . . . four were Valedictorians of their classes . . . two were ONLY Salutatorians.
4. . . . lastly and most importantly . . . the heads of four Hispanic families on my street insist that their children view Free Republic every day and bring at least one topic to the dinner table at every meal so the family can discuss BOTH sides of the subject. IN ENGLISH!! The first language of the parents is Spanish . . . but they insist it be English for their children.

I think the fact of a conservative mindset and culture in even the illegal alien community explains Bush's stance on immigration from Mexico. You know better than I do the situation, of course, but I wouldn't be suprised if his "guest worker" proposal has its roots in the knowledge of a great work ethic and strong family ties among the Hispanic population.

It seems to me that about 37% of the population are pretty hard core democrats and would support and vote for Joseph Stalin if he had a (D) behind his name.

Sad

I agree, but, it seems in todays world in America, that the " FAR RIGHT " or the right mostly believes in what our founding fathers believed in, and I was just being general in my comments because " our side " has not been doing a good job in keeping down spending among other things.
The point I was trying to make was more in general that the left, or " LEFTIST " i.e. liberals/democrats are anti America, anti military, anti GOD, pro abortion, pro gay, pro feminism, pro UN, pro EU.

There are some who may accuse you of exaggerating the situation, but you're not.

I honestly cannot remember seeing, hearing or reading a single positive story or analysis in the MSM on anything the Bush administration has done since the immediate aftermath of 9/11. Not one.

Without exception, EVERY story is negative.

I've been thinking for a while that we're witnessing a slow conversion to the right on the part of Wallace. I've seen a glint of recognition in his face on several occasions that the other side is pushing a lie.

I'ved enjoyed Wallace in the Sunday morning slot. Tony had more of a "can't we all just get along?" style of interviewing, hoping they'll hang themselves. Wallace is bit better at getting them even more unbalanced and really honing in on the inconsistencies.

Chris is always on Howie Carr's show at the beginning of every Friday show and he is funny and clearly shows a veiled but clear dislike for the left. He loves his Dad but probably has his more conservative questions due to the very nature of having been raised around his father's bias.

In NYC Rudy Guliani's term in office resulted in the annual murder rate dropping from something like 1800 to 2000 down to under 700 (mostly black lives saved BTW--blacks who were dropping like flies under David Dinkins, our 1st black mayor) but the MSM focused on things like the Diallo case so the black community enthralled by Sharpton and Jackson consistently saw him as a racist...clueless people don't have a clue...go figure...and, of course, the MSM cover Sharrpton and Jackson like they are demigods instead of reporting the truth and informing the masses...truth...bah!...integrity...what's that?...money and power...that's the Democrats of today.

Well, at least she is on the right track if she listens to Rush. Her age is probably suspect, although almost everyone I know in that age bracket is pretty sharp. Rush usually gets through with some time.

Thats a tuffy.
Try to avoid the politics arguments for later discussion.
Focus on areas of interest, common interest and values that you both share and agree on ( she might be surprised ( just imagine a light bulb going on in her mind ) that you both actually DO agree on SOMETHING ) that you believe in some of the things that she believes in, but, keep it on a light topic.
My dad was a Democrat ( FDR Democrat generation, raised during WWII..50s ), and he shared the views of abortion as the liberals do, but, it was hard to read my dad, because, he also shared some values as you and me.
Yes, my dad and I had ( shall I say ? debates ) debates on politics and religion, but, one thing my dad and I never did was have knock down arguments on politics and religion
My dad and I respected each other and had respect towards each other.
Sadly to say, my dad passed away from a heart attack a few years ago, but, at his funeral, his co worker ( I knew his co worker ) came up to me, and said to me " ( ____ )( my name ) out of all the children your dad had, your the one who spent the most time with your dad, and your the one he talked about ( and was proud of the most ) the most."
I showed my dad ( in spite that he was a Democrat ) that I loved him, and I know in my heart he knew it.

I don't believe there's any evidence she was protecting a Bush admin source. I think there's evidence she is still protecting another source, which she to this day will not reveal.

A source she "cannot recall"...

I showed my dad ( in spite that he was a Democrat ) that I loved him, and I know in my heart he knew it.

I have a similar story. My father used to say in similar discussions we had that "FDR saved this country" with his socialistic policies. My mother, who is still voting, won't say that about FDR (at least not to me) but she buys the Democratic Party's lies hook, line and sinker.

But my mother voted for Bush last election. It may have been when I asked her WHY she fought in WWII (army nurse in the Pacific) if she was just going to vote for communists like Gore and Kerry.

Sorry about your father's passing - you proved to be a great son. That probably means so much to you to have his co-worker make such a great comment on such a sad occasion. I hope I have no regrets when my parents pass on - I spend a lot of time with them since they live 30 minutes from me.

I don't think I have a contentious relationship with my mom - I just enjoy political discussion and she doesn't. As she told me she was taught you didn't talk about politics or religion - period. I grew up in different times - graduated HS in 85 and college in 89 - truly a Reaganite - and very proud of it. My mom is an FDR democrat like your dad. Born in '38 and raised in the 40's and 50's - she knew the democratic party when it was very different. She views the desire to talk politics as devisive and when it is raised in discussion she get uncomfortable.

Funny I have a really great dialogue with my dad, but there is a mother/daughter thing that is weird sometimes. I am very much like my mother so we get along very well, but we lack the ability to bridge some topics, whereas with my dad he will engage me. Mom gives me advise about house and home and relationships, but dad and I do the serious talking.

The best to you, keep wondering what kind of relationship I will have with my kids at my parent's age. Hoping for one like you and your dads.

Boy, that was long post, huh???

Tell her that if politics & religion were not to be discussed, we would not have this great country of ours, because POLITICS & RELIGION were discussed at the Continental Congress, before the Revolutionary War, after that war, and before our Constitution was built, signed, and passed.
I can only just imagine those political and religious discussions that went on during the Continental Congress, the drafting of our US Constitution.
Yes, they ( ex specially your mom ) were raised in a different time, but, I am afraid, that they use that as a excuse to not engage in a political & religious discussion because either they don't want contention, or they fear that they would not be taken seriously, or they don't want change.
Maybe you can reassure her that you love her, and that, you won't laugh at her ideas ( even though ? you want to put her on the right path ) and reassure her that you TOO, also have the same values, and beliefs as you do, but, in a different language, or words, or form.
Find out in a not so contentious way what her true core values are, and if you need help, go ask your dad, and maybe he can translate to her what you mean, and believe.

Tried all that. She thinks I am a brain-washed Republican. What she doesn't understand is that I am not a Republican at all. I am a conservative independent with libertarian leanings. In practice this often means that my only viable choice is "the lesser of two evils", the Republicans. So I vote for them, and contribute to them. But I am not one of them.

It was subtle because it was the only game in town. If they didn't report it, it didn't happen, it didn't exist. So any story that would support a conservative narrative was ... not. Now they can't do this, and the frustrations driving them wild.

Sweet schadenfreude!!! (Did I spell that right? Well, you know what I mean, and probably how conducive to sound sleep it is.)

Not wanting contention hits it on the head - many of the "Silent Generation" as it was dubbed here on FR, are not grandstanders, they live their lives quietly and hated the upheaval of the 60s after the tranquility of the 50's.

I have told my parents several times thay I find it very interesting that for 2 non-political, Democratic Party leaning parents they raised such tried and true conservatives - and they shrug their shoulders. Part of it is me and my brothers grew up in the Washington DC area - politics 24/7, inside the beltway mentality. My parents grew up in a small coal-mining town in PA - kinda poor but happy. 2 different worlds.

One day we will have a very good discussion - she knows I love her and for now that is good. Thanks for all the pointers, I will always listen to good advise.

Good Night, off to get kids in bed and walk the dog!

I have an Aunt who tells me that she can't stand President Bush. When I ask her for specific reasons, she can't come up with any. She "just doesn't like him."

Behold the proof of a successful propaganda campaign!

They can give you the opinions they passionately hold, but they can't begin to give you a substantive reason for holding them.

It's nothing but pure artifice masquerading as thought.

Someday, ask her what are the odds, given the law of averages, that one person could be ALL bad, NEVER do anything right, and NEVER deserve a positive story?

Then point out that on the MSM, America itself is ALL bad, NEVER does anything right, and NEVER gets a positive story. Is that the America she knew/knows?

That's what converted me... how could the US be in the wrong in EVERY conflict? It just didn't pass the smell test. Then I started thinking, and looking.

(However, my mom was the same, don't expect much success!)

"Fox News wouldn't exist if it weren't for this kind of stuff going on in the mainstream media," he told Carr. "That's why people are fed up with that and want the antidote to it because they get it and they've gotten it for years - the so-called bias in the objective press."

And IMO Fox News has given in WAY TOO MUCH to the constant criticism of the left in what they do.

I used to tune in for an oasis from the left-wing bombardment that rains down not just from news sources, but every form of media right down to sitcom drivel. Anymore their efforts to bend over backwards to appease the left (which can only be achieved through COMPLETE surrender to their Brave New World political correctness) has me tuning in far less.

Well, Fox is filled with true believers and nuts of every stripe, but the difference is that they've a handful of sane news analysts. Any news outlet that hires Jerry Rivers has to be, er, fair and balanced in some measure. I don't know where Chris Wallace stands, and I think that he plays his political hand close to the vest, but it isn't difficult to see the "amazing" media bias in the MSM. To admit it is to say that the sun sets in the West.

Still, you gotta know, that when you throw around phrases like: "my 7 year old girlfriend" on a public forum where people don't know you; you're likely to get some inquries of one form or another.

"It's nothing but pure artifice masquerading as thought."

The strange thing is some of this "artifice" comes from extremely intelligent people. One friend, a former teacher w/masters in math, and a niece, college teacher, et. al., are super intelligent, and they should know better. Can't figure out why they don't "see the light" on their own.

I try to read folks homepages before I comment one way or another on "delicate" subjects like this . . . then I never try to be judgmental until I get more facts. The term "pedo-perv" was provocative and cruel . . . something I would NEVER be to another fellow FReeper.

If any 52 year-old FReeper had written the EXACT same post I did, I would read his or her homepage, then assume there was some kind of inside joke not meant for me and leave it at that.

If you had read my homepage, I would hope you would've known the term was used in jest. I've adopted some nieces and nephews because of something similar to this. I've only been able to handle it physically, mentally, AND FINANCIALLY because of Monica's family. Someone in their family has worked with someone in my family for 85 years now and I love them beyond measure. My nieces and nephews and Monica and her brothers and sisters are the closest thing I'll ever have to children of my own.

Your use of the term "pedo-perv" was totally uncalled for . . . sarcasm or not. This family reads EVERY post I make to Free Republic and that is the only reason I'm going into such detail.

Mine and your interaction was discussed at length at their supper table last night. To even have to have this discussion with such a good, caring, loving, and impressionable young child broke my heart. I'll pass on your explanation . . . but she read your post before I did and her mother told me she spent an hour trying to figure out what a "pedo-perv" was before I called her.

She loves it when I refer to her in my posts . . . that's why I did so. I wanted her to know how proud I was of her. But I will do so no longer.

If you would like to send me a "private reply" to help her understand, I'll see to it that she gets it.
