Fox’s Chris Wallace announced he’d present the pros and cons of the Iran deal, but what he meant was he’d discuss it with Republican Senator Bob Corker and leave it to reporter James Rosen to do a “fair and balanced” report that worked in a few Democratic quotes – in addition to as many opposing views.
In his introduction to today's Fox News Sunday, Wallace said, “We’ll have a report on the pros and cons of the deal” and “Today, we’re going to drill down into the framework.” What he didn’t mention is that no Democratic guests would be there to balance Corker. As a matter of fact, there were no Democratic guests at all.
Apparently, it was up to “objective” Rosen to give us the pros. He gave us quotes from President Obama, John Kerry, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf as well as Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, Bush administration CIA Director Michael Hayden and Benjamin Netanyahu, (R-Israel).
Then it was on to Corker and the Fox News Sunday panel for discussion. It's worth pointing out that while Corker said he saw "red flags" in the deal, he also said, "I'm open." You can watch his interview below.
This is yet another example of a Fox News Sunday without Democratic guests. Below is our informal tally of other such shows:
Couldn’t it possibly be the “liberal” influence on the media, right?
