Delusions Abound as Fox Anchor Decries MSNBC's Supposedly "Biased" Reporting

Media

Serious People, making very serious money, guiding our political discourse and determining for us who is allowed to lead our country:


Continuing Fox News' war of words with MSNBC, "Fox News Sunday" anchor Chris Wallace accused its rival of being "in the tank" for Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama, while further pressing the news channel's case that the mainstream press exhibits a liberal bias.
"I think MSNBC's coverage went so far over the line that it lost all credibility," Wallace told reporters Monday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour.
Wallace accused MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann of inappropriately mixing anchor and opinion-making duties, and said Fox News drew a distinction between its reporters and opinion-minded hosts.
"There's a reason why Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity won't be anchoring the election night or the conventions," he said during the sesh at the BevHilton hotel.
Although the session was far from contentious, Fox did receive several questions regarding the propriety and terms of former Bush administration official Karl Rove's role as a Fox commentator given the ongoing dispute with Congress -- he ignored a committee's subpoena -- and his unofficial relationships with advisors to John McCain's campaign.
