For all those who like to respond to criticism of Fox News Channel commentators such as Glenn Beck, with the idea that there are, essentially, two Fox Newses – the “news” and the “opinion” shows – Media Matters for America has put together the following list. It shows the numerous times Fox News host Chris Wallace (a news guy) parrots Glenn Beck (a commentator).

  • Wallace echoes Beck in airing Untouchables clip, referring to the Obama administration’s “Chicago way.”
  • Wallace followed Beck’s lead in mainstreaming O’Keefe’s ACORN videos.
  • Wallace and Beck repeat bogus claim that U.S. Chamber of Commerce “represents 3 million businesses.”
  • Wallace’s “death book” smears followed Beck’s “death panels” smears.
  • Wallace echoed Beck in asking if prosecution of Bush admin. will lead U.S. toward “what we’ve had in banana republics?”
  • Beck and Wallace have both advanced the meme of Obama as an “apologist.”
  • Beck and Wallace use fictional character “Jack Bauer” in defense of torture.

Keep in mind, that was one host and one commentator.
