Division Between Fox News "News" And "Editorial?" Chris Wallace Adopts Beck's Comparison Of White House To "The Untouchables"

Reported by Ellen - October 25, 2009 -

Chris Wallace, presumably not part of the "opinion programming" Fox News likes to say other people conflate with its "news programming," nonetheless echoed Glenn Beck's over-the-top attacks on President Obama today by playing the same clip from The Untouchables as Beck played on Friday. Like Beck, Wallace also suggested that President Obama was practicing "The Chicago Way" by emulating The Untouchabes. We saw Sean Connery saying, "He pulls a knife? You pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital? You send one of his to the morgue. That’s the Chicago way.” With video.

Near the end of the panel segment on today's Fox News Sunday, Wallace played the clip from The Untouchables. He jocularly introduced it by saying, "The latest chapter in the Obama White House's war on Fox News and what some people are calling the administration's 'Chicago way' of doing business."

Maybe next week Wallace can borrow Beck's chalkboard and photograph of Chairman Mao.
