Rick Santorum looks ahead to Super Tuesday; Sens. Graham, Blumenthal talk Iran, Afghanistan
Fox New Sunday ^ | 3/4/2012 | Chris Wallace

Posted on 03/05/2012 4:22:14 AM PST by Acton

WALLACE: Rush Limbaugh has now apologized to the Georgetown law student who said that her student health plan should cover birth control. But your party is still pushing this issue. In the Senate, they offered a Blunt amendment this week which said that any business, any insurance company could decide on moral grounds not to offer birth control coverage as part of the health insurance plan.

Do you really want to be campaigning on contraception in the year 2012?

Chris Wallace tried to snare Rick Santorum with a run-on question that cannot be characterized as "fair or balanced." In a question that should have been about personal beliefs -- if that is important -- or objections on grounds of conscience or personal belief -- which has never been an issue in America until this week -- or something else, Wallace associated all the evils of the world -- objections to contraception, those evil Republican legislators, and Rush Limbaugh -- in a sandbag question. Then he proceeded with other "gotcha" questions -- "You supported this in 2001, but said you didn't later, and yet your website said in 2006 ..." My goodness, can no one rid of this opinionated blowhard who keeps trying to be relevant and presents himself as "fair and balanced?" This is the same Wallace who used the word "flake" to refer to Michelle Bachmann. He keeps at it, and yet tries to make the right think he is "balanced." He is about as unbalanced -- in at least two ways -- as any host out there.

I saw the interview, it was hard-hitting, to be sure, but I did not think it was unfair. Santorum could have handled his answers better, but all in all I thought he did a decent job fielding tough questions.

I don’t think that Chris Wallace deserves your criticism as you have stated it regarding Santorum - maybe for going easy on other candidates - but not for this interview.

the “gotcha” from conservative Catholic radio show talk host Bill Cunningham was even more strident and attacking.

No. I want the politicians to campaign of the constitution. No government involvement in health care.

If Chris Wallace ever asks Administration officials or Democrat leaders about Sheriff Joe's findings:

then and only then will I consider Wallace "fair and balanced."

Chris Wallace is the son of Mike Wallace (CBS). They don't get any more liberal than Mike.
I am sure Chris has some liberal tendencies.
Most of the time I like Mike. Sometimes though he does get off the reservation. . .

I agree with Acton......what kind of fair and balanced interview was that?

All Wallace did was try to nail Santorum to personal beliefs & accuse him of being out of the norm.

If Santorum's personal beliefs are out of the norm then this country is in sad shape, and I suspect it is!

Santorum was quite ill with the flu or something (which Wallace admitted to in a segment an hour later) yet still held his own & answered Wallace's 'gotcha' questions graciously and soundly.

If the eventual nominee of any party can not handle Chis Wallace, that party is in deep, deep, trouble

I listened to most of that Cunningham interview last night. I am NOT a Santorum supporter by any means, but what was up with those questions? He kept saying he was praying that Santorum would win but that he didn’t have a chance. His questions were almost attacks. Santorum couldn’t help but sound defensive and argumentative. Then there was some kind of silly dustup where Santorum supposedly hung up on another host. The interview made this Newt supporter actually feel sorry for Rick!

Why the hell does Rick let himself get dragged into these issues that are not the determining issues of this race? He never wins the “debate” in those instances. Why the hell didn’t he say: “Hey Chris, wanna talk about he Economy or Foreign Policy or rising gas prices?” No, he keeps walking right into the media’s trap. Hey Rick, STFU!!! And, as far as Chris Wallace: FOX News has been in the tank for Romney for months.

Wallace, like O’Reilly and a number of others at numerous networks are political commentators.

Fair and Balanced would be Fox's (or any news network's) straight news programs, not commentators.(whether or not they actually accomplish this...as they mostly don't)

not backing Wallace (the spawn of his leftist father, Mike....they seem politically opposed)...not crazy about him...just saying, he is a commentator not an anchor.

The national socialists and their propagandists are getting a lot of mileage/converts/useful idiots out of the mini-Reichstag moment. Stage the event. Amplify the lie.

“Everything about socialism is sham and affectation.” - 23.11 Ch23 Evil; Economic Harmonies; Frederic Bastiat 1801-1850

Whiney crybaby sluts for socialists are very effective.

Pay for my stuff BUMP!

DEFUND socialism. You can do it. Live large.

DEPOPULATE socialists from the body politic. C’mon November. Live free.
