Chris Wallace Calls Out Fox’s Opinion Hosts for bias on Mueller Report coverage

Chris Wallace called out opinion hosts employed by Fox News for ’pushing a political agenda’ when covering the Mueller report. ’I know there’s some people who don’t think this March 27th letter is a big deal ... and some opinion people who appear on this network, who may be pushing a political agenda, but we have to deal in facts,’ Wallace said, seeming to reference coverage by Laura Ingram.

And Wallace isn’t?! He’s continuing to talk like the Russian collusion is real even though 2 insane years were spent investigating without limit and can up with zero! Corporate Media needs to be dismantled now! Time to limit Corporate media ownership!!!! How? Stop watching them. Stop buying products promoted by them. That’ll do it.

Oh look, everybody! They're eating their own! Hahahahahahaha. Or.... maybe there are just a couple journalists on Fox News that actually take the profession seriously. Now who's going to be the first to claim that Wallace isn't a true Scotsman?

This highlights a growing problem in the so called news. Opinion pundits like Laura Ingram and Sean Hannity are able to say whatever they think with or without evidence on "News" channels because it gets them ratings. This is similar to how newspapers deliver opinion columns, but there often isn't a clear delineation between fact and opinion on these networks. This is especially troubling with these being the most watched parts of the cable news programming. That means that more people who get their news do so from opinion anchors who may be paid to tow a line instead of journalists who can be held accountable for intentionally misleading their viewers. Unlike journalists, they have no obligation to tell the truth or not be intentionally misleading. There's a similar problem with "comedy news shows" like The Daily Show or Last Week Tonight on the left. While these shows may be well researched, they have no journalistic obligation to the truth either. Usually there seems to be a clear line between jokes and fact on those shows, but in any case the reason they wrote it that way is because it was funnier to do so, not because it was more factual or less misleading. This is not to say that these people are always lying, but it does cause a problem when there's no framework to make them tell the truth like there is with journalists. And yet, as we become more polarized on the left and the right, we increasingly seek out this kind of media because it makes us feel right about our beliefs, factual or not, because we crave their sweet sweet confirmation bias.

Wallace has to many biased opinions himself. Most of his comments are more opinion based based than factual. He is riding his father's coattails and not doing a good job.
