By The Right Scoop


Actually this is a great interview. Much of the conversation is about Fox News, MSNBC, Presidential candidates, and how it all fits together, especially on Fox. Wallace defends Fox News but does relent a bit on the ‘back of the bus’ segment that was pointed out the other night. Even so, Wallace makes some great points about the MSM being biased and the whole interview is actually a very good dialogue about the news media.

Enjoy!

    I watched this interview, and think that Wallace should have countered Stewart’s premise from the outset. Instead he accepted it and was left goofily chuckling along at Stewart’s continuous insinuations that FoxNews is the much more professional, idealogically driven, MSNBC of the right. Wallace only has one or two good moments in the whole interview.

    • DisturbingBehavior

      I think Chris did okay. Stewart keeps his interviews in a laid-back/comedic tone and Chris was certainly respectful of that format. It is reminiscent of the difference between Stewart going on The Factor and O’Reily going on The Daily Show. If Stewart does go on Fox News Sunday, I expect Chris will give Stewart one of the hardest interviews he’s ever had.
      I know Stewart’s interview of Jim Cramer may still be on some people’s minds, but that’s an exception to the norm.

    Wallace let Stewart push and push the idea that FNC is a Republican organization. The way I see it, if most people agree with the truth, and there is an outlet that helps that information get out- most people will watch and agree with that outlet. Truth is not propaganda as Stewart would like people to believe.

      Hmmm. Yeah, all those comedians running for office on the Stewart show really does look a bit suspicious.

    Wallace should have countered Stewart’s premise, in some humorous fashion, or at least pointed out that the entire rest of the Obamalicking media could not counter the truths that Fox puts out. Oh yeah, it also seems that the bulk of the voting population sees it like Fox does. Thank God for Rupert Murdoch.

      “…the bulk of the voting population sees it like Fox does”
      Yeah. Let’s hope you’re right, since it was a record low turnout.
      But that works I guess like the equally ironically named Pravda worked.

        I see you`ve learned the Pravda lesson well, facts didn`t matter to them either.
        The official number of voters isn`t in yet but why let that stop you.
        While we wait for those numbers you might want to consider these…

        A record number of voters have cast early ballots for a midterm election this year. The number of early ballots cast has now topped 16 million, and is on track to be just shy of the historic number of early ballots cast during the 2008 presidential election. George Mason University government professor Michael McDonald, who has tracked early voting for several election cycles, estimates that 29 percent of midterm votes have been cast in the days leading up to the actual Election Day.

        McDonald commented:

        “It’s going to easily beat any midterm we’ve had.”

          Still a record low for midterm elections.
          I apologize for just sticking with the facts.
          But it’s still a record number of nutty voters who’ve been successfully manipulated into voting for shooting themselves in the foot. I’ll give you that.

    Wallace is great

    I thought he did confront him right in the beginning. “You are talking about the Repub party; I am talking about Fox News.”

    I’d love to see Jonathan Stewart as a guest on Chris Wallace’s show!
