Fox News' Chris Wallace Demands People Call Jill Biden "Doctor," Suggests That Reluctance to Do So Is Based on... Sexism

I don't know about you, but I am loving being Fox-Free and Cord-Cut.

He tossed this homerun pitch for leftwing Democrat Jen Psaki:

"As you know, Jill Biden has been criticized in some corners over her insistence at being called Doctor Jill Biden. Author Joseph Epstein and others, including several prominent Ph.Ds have argued that her title, Ed.D, and the honorific "doctor," are generally only used within the academic setting or area of expertise. Why is Jill Biden so insistent on being called "Doctor"?

It must be because of Sexism. Right? And not because the Ed.D. degree, which requires no dissertation and does not require, as a Ph.D., research that contributes substantially to the net store of human knowledge, is a fucking joke degree to let teachers get more money from the state?

And maybe because her not-a-dissertation reveals her to be a borderline illiterate?

And maybe because we almost never call non-medical-doctors "doctor"? Chris Wallace offers MLK Jr. and Kissinger as a examples of men called "doctor."

Can he name any others?

And I think Kissinger is only called "doctor" because he came from Germany where it is more typical to use the "doctor" title with Ph.D.'s, and MLK Jr. is called that because he was assassinated and most people don't want to quibble about it.

Chris Wallace failed to state the actual reasons for not letting a dumb bunny choose her own honorific pronouns, preferring to suggest it's just a matter of Hating Women.

But this is typical on the Chris Wallace's Leftwing Opinions Network.

In case you missed it, this thread recounts the lapses in basic grammar and basic math in "Doctor" Jill Biden's not-a-dissertation.

Former Fox host Eric Bolling spoke to Turning Point USA, and said that Fox was "very nervous" about having lost 40% of its former audience.

"Here's what happened guys, let's be honest with you, I can talk about this, Donald Trump on November 3rd -- Fox declared Biden the winner in Arizona. MAGA-world went ballistic, they said 'I'm not watching Fox News,' they switched over and they looked and they found Newsmax," Bolling said.

"Fox lost about 40% of their audience. 40 percent. That's a big number," Bolling continued, a statement that sparked roaring applause from the audience of young conservatives.

"I have friends still there that say they are very, very nervous about it, they're sucking wind on it and they don’t know how to turn it around," Bolling said.

Larry Johnson at Gateway Pundit estimates that Fox News has lost about half its audience.

Neil Cavuto drew 2.192 million viewers in August. By November he was attracting only 1.3 million.

The Five also suffered a big loss, going from 3.772 million in August to 2.883 million in November-minus 889,000 viewers.

Bret Baier suffered a significant decline of 1,139,000 –3.256 million in August to 2.117 million in November.

He's actually dipped below 2 million.

Martha MacCallum fared worse--she shed 50% of her audience, collapsing from 3.201 million to 1.613 million.

Tucker Carlson also has taken a big hit–dropping from 5.719 million in August to 3.444 million in November. That is a drop of 2.275 million.

Sean Hannity's shining star is flaming out. His viewership plummeted from 6.838 million to 2.839 million. That means almost 4 million people fled his show.

And Laura Ingraham bled out–she dropped from 4.82 million to 2.114. She lost 2.706 viewers.

These are consequential numbers. Fox has committed media suicide.

But whatever, allow neocon/neoliberal Bill Sammon and straight up leftwing nepot Chris Wallace to continue dictating the course of Fox News.
