Skip to comments.Chris Wallace: Media Bias 'Astonishing'
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.

All the sons of celebrities are raised in a cage!
In fact.....all liberals are kept on the plantation........
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 think he's an honest man who can't help but revise his way of thinking once exposed to the facts.
I'm glad he's on Fox.
You know, you should tell your Aunt that President Bush's low approval ratings are higher than Clinton's at this time in his Presidency. Bush is also higher than his father, Reagan, and definitely Carter. There are 25 percent that don't like him because of his country ways and because he might wear a cowboy hat too. At this point in my life, I'm completely satisfied with our President, who had to take on tough challenges and not play politics all the time. Had the Democrats listened to him on the oil exploration in his first term, we'd be in less of a pickle than we are now. When the Social Security goes bust, don't blame him for trying to fix the problem. Younger generation better wake up and take notice.
Anyone hear this interview or have a link to the transcript?
Prolly time for his contract to be re-newed and he wants to make sure they still want him.
Sounds like my dad, who watches BBC America and PBS for his news!
That and being surrounded by the MSM culture in his own professional life is precisely the reason he couldn't see it, IMO. Going to FN is like a breath of fresh air to the man, I imagine.
Fox is a start...we need a major network.
Yep. My mother came back from Ireland last week and she had a similar story to tell. All of these women as well as nuns and sisters in Ireland hate President Bush like poison. When my mother demanded at-least 3 reasons why...they came up with a whopping ZERO.
They love Clinton so much they have a statue of him in their town square from a visit he made there as president and his biography is a big seller over there.
Not one reason they could give to hate him...they just said "we just hate him...that's reason enough".
This small break-through is heartening. When it exposed to the truth, some Libs do see it and get it.
I challenge them to get online and check out the primary sources for the news stories. For example, the Kay and Duelfer reports. I tell them to go and read these documents for yourselves and then tell me that the news reports were accurate. Or go find whatever quote is being bandied about in its full context and tell me that the news reports about it are accurate.
I want them to see it with their own eyes. Most of them have no desire to verify what they're being told. They'd rather continue to be spoon fed.
I was talking to an old friend last week, who told me that she's soured on the President because people have told her that he and his friends are making money on oil. I started to explain to her about Cheney's deferred compensation from Halliburton, as a way to show her how the MSM twists the truth, and how that money is what he earned before he became VP, and she said, "What's Halliburton?" I gave up at that point.
At least you're able to articulate a reason other than "I don't like his smirk."
What astonishes me about this is that 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.
Thats sorta like "I don't like her because she seems happy all the time".
That ought to get you quite a response......LOLOL
How do you propose we "stop Bush" during his second term? In a few years, when his second term has expired, he will be stopped. In the meantime, he was duly elected and will perform the job he was elected to do.
