This is a new low.
How much longer are Americans going to give Fox News a pass for Chris Wallace’s actions?
Last week, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany put bias reporters on blast and gave them a list of topics regarding Michael Flynn’s unmasking to look into and come back and ask questions about following memorial day weekend.
Apparently, McEnany’s comments didn’t sit well with Fox’s Chris Wallace and he threatened her to never dare and challenge the media again!
Now, according to the Washington Examiner, during a panel discussion Wallace stated, “Jonah, first of all, it’s not extraordinary. Unmasking is pretty routine. The effort by people in an administration to find out who a masked American person is. It happens in the Trump White House. It happened, I think, 16,000 times the year before last. What’s a crime is leaking it, but unmasking isn’t. In addition, to which, I have to say that if Kayleigh McEnany had told Sam Donaldson and me what questions we should ask, that would not have gone well, Jonah.”
Then, Dispatch’s Jonah Goldberg replied, Yeah, look, it’s nice to see Donna so deferential to Kayleigh McEnany. I think her behavior is indefensible and grotesque. And I think that what she has done is she — there’s this cliché in Washington that President Trump wants a Roy Cohn as DOJ, as attorney general. What Donald Trump wants in a press secretary is a Twitter troll who goes on attack, doesn’t actually care about doing the job they have, and instead wants to impress, really, an audience of one and make another part of official Washington another one of these essentially cable news and Twitter gladiatorial arenas. And it’s a sign of the defining of deviancy down in our politics, and it’s only going to make things worse.
