The US liberal media and blogosphere are giving Chris Wallace well-deserved credit for criticizing his Fox News colleagues for their ceaseless barrage of invective against Barack Obama for his relationship with Reverend Wright and his church. Here’s an example, complete with the YouTube link.
Mr. Wallace is known to liberals, who otherwise tend not to watch Fox News, for his run-in with President Clinton in this interview. The good part (or bad part, depending on your political point of view). Personally, I think that Mr. Wallace comes out looking better. Mr. Clinton makes a good argument for himself on what he did to go after Osama bin Laden, but he basically dismisses the 9-11 Report and says, read Richard Clark’s book and believe everything in it. Mr. Clinton’s dark, obsessive side comes out, the side that came out in the South Carolina primary.
More importantly, does a substantial part of the US public really get the news solely from Fox News and conservative radio talk shows? And how different are they from people who rely on The Daily Show and The Colbert Report and Keith Olberman?
