Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
This is Fox News. – No, really, it actually is Fox News Sunday, the flagship Sunday morning program for the supposed “balanced” news channel. Hosted by Chris Wallace, son of long-time CBS reporter Mike Wallace, this program is fast becoming a bell cow signaling a general shift in Fox’s news reporting from “fair, balanced and unafraid” to “liberal, tilted and aspiring to be CNN.”
This Sunday’s program showed Wallace at his very worst: bomastic, combative, argumentative, constantly interrupting and shrill. Well, that was how he behaved when he interviewed Trump White House counsel Rudy Giuliani, anyway, barely allowing the former New York Mayor to get three words out before jumping in to “correct” him. Here’s the clip:
That’s not an interview, it’s disgusting hackery by a biased interviewer focused on not allowing the interviewee to get his message out. It’s like something out of the prime time CNN or MSNBC lineups, something you’d expect from Chris Matthews or Chris Cuomo.
Next up for Wallace on Fox News Sunday was Bug-eyed Adam Schiff, the pathological liar congressman from California who has been running around for two years claiming he’s seen clear proof of “Russia Collusion”, but refusing to say what that “proof” actually is. So, you’re thinking, wow, this clown’s coming on Fox News, he’s gonna get destroyed, right?
Watch as intrepid Fox host Chris Cuo…er…Matth…er… Wallace poses softball question after softball question, and then sits back in his chair and lets Schiff drone on and on and on without any attempt to interrupt him or correct the false record he’s creating:
I have in the past praised Wallace for his even-handedness. Frankly, I believe his conduct of third debate between Trump and the Pantsuit Princess, focusing on issues of substance rather than Trump’s personal failings as the two previous debate moderators had done, played a big role in the clinching the election for President Trump. Wallace can be a fine, real journalist when he wants to. But his conduct on Fox News Sunday recently and his commentary on other programs during the week show a decided leftward trend.
So, there you go, folks, there is today’s Fox News: biased, timid and totally afraid to do its job. Oh, the prime time line up remains a bastion of conservative advocacy – for now, anyway. But the daytime and weekend news programs are all trending liberal/left, and another year or two of that trend will leave this cable channel looking no different than its competition.
Robert Mueller, media/Democrat hero, is suddenly Robert Mueller, media/Democrat target. – What a difference a few weeks make. As long as Robert Mueller was functioning as America’s Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” and trying to execute a slow-rolling coup d’etat on President Donald Trump, he was the media/Democrat establishment’s Upright Man, a man with unassailable character, a man who was going to save the country from the BAD ORANGE MAN in the White House.
For almost two solid years, this guy was completely off-limits to reporters muck-raking for a story. For all those months while his Witch Hunt was ongoing, no “journalist” working at any mainstream fake news media outlet would have ever dreamed – not in a million years – to try to accost the Upright Man With Unassailable Character as he walked around in public.
Think about it: In all that time, from May 17, 2017 when he was appointed until March 22, 2019, when he folded up his tent and formally handed his final report to Attorney General William Barr, do you remember seeing a single reporter attempt to ask this guy a single question? Yeah, neither do I.
But now, his coup d’etat effort having failed with a real Attorney General suddenly occupying that key office, Robert Mueller finds himself fair game, even a target for the media and their Democrat masters. He found that out the hard way yesterday as he emerged from church on Easter Sunday, and found a despicable fake reporter and camera guy running up to shout questions at him as he tried to get into his car and leave. Here’s the video of that disgusting incident:

So hey, Bob, this is the thanks you get for carrying the Deep State’s water for two years. Frankly, it couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy.
Best of luck with all of that.
That is all.
