Chris Wallace Tells Fox and Friends to Cut the Obama Bashing
Friday, March 21, 2008 | Author: Mad Typist
A truly remarkable clip is posted at Think Progress. Chris Wallace, of the Fox News Channel, takes the hosts of Fox & Friends (the channel's morning show) to task for "Obama-bashing" for 2 hours straight. The dialog goes on for about 5 minutes and gets pretty uncomfortable for the F&F folks. It's really something. Of course, I agree with Chris Matthews' points entirely. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go look out the window at all the flying pigs.

Seriously, though, as much as I often dislike Matthews, it's somewhat reassuring to see that there are at least a few people at Fox News Channel willing to actually use their brains. It's tempting to dismiss the network as a right-wing crazy haven. It certainly has all the signs of being a propaganda machine. But the fact is, it's still an influential news channel that speaks to millions of Americans. The only sad thing for the channel is that this seems to be the exception, rather than the norm when someone at Fox News Channel shows signs of actual journalistic integrity.
