Debate Thread 4

558 OANN ripping into Wallace. Posted by: Methos

Wallace demanded Trump condemn the "white supremacists and militia" in Kenosha (Kyle Rittenhouse?!! WTF?!!), but would not demand that Biden condemn antifa and BLM.

In fact, when Trump was making that point, Wallace declared (Guess what?) it was "TIME TO MOVE ON."

And now-- We don't have time to talk about Biden's corrupt son getting three and a half million from the wife of the former Mayor of Moscow. Now we have to talk about climate change

Has everyone had enough of Fox yet?

Correct:

Chris Wallace was always going to be a terrible choice as a moderator for any of the three presidential debates, let alone the first one, but good God did he fulfill that destiny with flying colors.

We knew it back in July when Wallace attempted to fact-check President Trump on the accurate claim that former vice president Joe Biden was on the record committing to defunding police departments. Biden is, in fact, on record commiting to that, and yet Wallace pretended we hadn't heard it with our own ears.

The Fox News anchor was supposed to show up and moderate a debate, with it having expressly been stated that he wouldn't operate as a fact-checker and yet that's all he did for at least the first hour of the debate. It got so bad that at one point he asked Trump not to interrupt his opponent (there were many fine interruptions on both sides) and when the president asked Wallace to make that same point to Biden, Wallace puffed up his chest to tell Trump that it was actually him doing more interrupting.

That exchange lasted a fully wasted 10 seconds so that Wallace could make a niggling point that viewers didn't care about and which was explicitly untrue.

Instead of hearing from the candidates, we heard from Chris Wallace's ego, and Chris Wallace's partisan agenda.
