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 FoxÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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..."

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."

I think Fox is by far the most biased news medium in which I ever get involved."***A sidenote of possible interest.

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...
