Fox's Wallace chastised by Barney Frank [VIDEO]


In recent weeks, both George Soros ("[Your colleagues are] so disreputable I wouldn't want to mention their names") and Bill Clinton ("So you did Fox’s bidding on this show. You did your nice little conservative hit job on me...") have chastised Fox hosts on the air for their obviously slanted coverage.

Now, likely head of the committee that oversees financial services, Barney Frank, stopped a Chris Wallace interview with three dems poised to take over several committees to point out how unbalanced the questions were (video upper right), beginning: "I've got to say, Chris, you have an odd view of balance..."

According to the NY Sun:

Mr. Frank said Mr. Wallace's questions improved after the on-air criticism. Asked how fair Fox is when compared to other news outlets, the congressman said the network is "substantially worse."
"Chris is actually one of the better ones," Mr. Frank added. "Some of them just cut you off if they don't agree with you. I think Fox is by far the most biased news medium in which I ever get involved."
***A sidenote of possible interest. Both Fox's Chris Wallace and the National Review's Byron York are reporting that the Congressional Black Caucus has sent a letter to Nancy Pelosi supporting Democrat Alcee Hastings for chairman of the House Intelligence Committee "100%." In the clip above, CBC member Charlie Rangel hadn't heard anything about it (he claims), and no mention of it appears on the CBC website. I've put in a call to the CBC for confirmation...
