In yet another indication of his fraying relationship with the Fox News Channel and its viewers, Fox host Chris Wallace pointedly called out his fellow hosts on the channel for allegedly obsessing over Jill Biden’s claim to be entitled to the honorific “Dr.”
Its yet another example of Wallace’s craven pandering to the left on Fox airwaves.
The Daily Beast reports:
Fox News anchor Chris Wallace took a not-so-veiled shot at his Fox colleagues who have obsessed over soon-to-be first lady Jill Biden’s use of the title “doctor,” noting on Sunday that other prominent figures who aren’t medical doctors have used it and there’s never been a “fuss about that.”
Lets just take a moment to appreciate what a weak argument that is. Does anyone really believe that Jill Biden deserves the title of doctor?
Here’s Wallace’s full question, put to Biden press secretary Jen Psaki.
“There has been some criticism recently from conservatives, including some conservatives on Fox News, about the fact that first lady-to-be Jill Biden goes by the title ‘Dr.,’…I wonder, what is the Bidens’ reaction to that, especially given the fact that so many people over the years—I think of Dr. Henry Kissinger, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King—have gone by the title doctor even though they’re not medical doctors and nobody seems to have made a fuss about that?”
What a lapdog for the Biden’s Wallace is. While he prides himself on his “tough interviewer” image, in reality, he’s serving up softballs. Instead of asking the question straight up, he’s asking it, then answering it himself.
His father, legendary interviewer Mike Wallace, would be embarrassed.
