Chris Wallace has been at the forefront a lot lately after his ridiculous debate performance moderating for Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Wallace was combative, never pushed Biden to answer basic questions, and generally did his best to protect the former VP from scrutiny. Of course, that’s when Wallace wasn’t directly debating Trump.

As I pointed out at the time, one of the most egregious maneuvers by Wallace was not pressing Biden to answer whether he would support packing the Supreme Court, an idea that his party has embraced wholeheartedly at the highest levels. When Trump tried to push Biden for an answer, Wallace decided to jump in and forcefully go to the next question. He did that despite the fact that there was no hotter question to be answered that night.

Well, Wallace’s memory must be short because now he’s complaining that Biden won’t provide an answer to the very question he let him slide on.

If only Chris Wallace had been a moderator for a debate in which he could have made Biden answer the question instead of quickly moving on, right? It boggles the mind that someone can be this much of a hack.


Of course, we all know the answer that Biden won’t provide. If he had no intentions of packing the court, he’d just say so. There’s no risk to him making moderates like him even more, and we all know the rabid Democrat base will show up to vote against Trump anyway. That Biden refuses to answer such a simple question provides all the context we need to ascertain what he really thinks.

Wallace knows that and had a chance to make sure the voters got all the facts. Instead, he chastised Trump and moved on as if Biden were directing him. That’s why he’s a bad journalist. It’s also why his ratings are down some 30% over the last several months while other Fox News shows have continued to grow. People are sick and tired of rank, left-wing bias. Letting Biden off the hook was a huge show of bias on Wallace’s part. He has no leg to stand on complaining about it now.
