Chris Wallace slams conservative media hypocrisy: ‘You shouldn’t fall into line’ when Trump attacks

Published

on

Fox’s Chris Wallace spoke with host Harris Faulkner on Friday about President Donald Trump’s Thursday press conference, during which he attacked the “very dishonest media.”

Faulkner pointed to the discussion surrounding Trump’s take on the unfair media, asking, “Can you think of any examples of where the president might actually have had some strong points about false reporting? Because that was really what he was going after.”

Wallace noted that there has been negative reporting about Trump, particularly in the mainstream liberal media. He did note, however, that a lot of the coverage is “accurate reporting of things the president doesn’t like.”

He commented on the various leaks coming from the White House this past week, explaining that he can understand why the president wouldn’t like the media reports, but he said, “That doesn’t mean that the reporting of those facts, those leaks is fake in any way, shape, or form.”

Faulkner cited pushback against the press from Trump, asking whether it will impact the way the media covers him moving forward. Wallace, laughing, replied, “No, my experience has been, you know, when a president or any official tells what you should be doing … Just because the president or other powerful person says that, you shouldn’t fall into line.”

Wallace then recounted Fox News’ reporting of former President Barack Obama. “We got plenty of criticism at Fox from President Obama during the last eight years and we didn’t fall into line because of that, and I think most of the viewers out there salute us for not falling into line,” he said.

“If you don’t like the idea that President Obama is telling the press what to do, you can’t like it when it’s President Trump, somebody a lot of viewers here may admire, telling reporters what to do,” Wallace argued.

BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women

Published

on

The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.

The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.

"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.

Dershowitz claimed that neither abuse of power nor obstruction of Congress count as "high crimes" under the constitution.

Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has also been associated with Harvard Law for five decades, was asked about Dershowitz's argument during an interview with Chris Hayes.
