Fox News‘ Chris Wallace is being criticized heavily for what appeared to be a significant pro-Joe-Biden bias during last night’s initial presidential debate.
The Federalist’s Kylee Zempel, called it the “most embarrassing moderator performance in history.”
“Wallace, a registered Democrat, failed to maintain any control over the debate. Even members of the left pointed out what a chaotic ‘disgrace’ the whole ordeal was. But after a while, it was hard to pay attention to anything but Wallace’s Biden bias. Media moderators playing favorites with presidential contenders is nothing new, but Wallace’s persistent partisanship reached a new low.”
“From interrupting Trump but not Biden at nearly every turn, blocking the incumbent before he could correct mischaracterizations and flat-out lies from Biden, to full-throated arguments with the president despite lobbing soft-ball questions — or no questions at all — to the former vice president, Wallace’s presentation was appalling.”
Zempel was not alone in her criticism.

Chris Wallace is making very clear that his goal tonight is to run interference for Joe Biden. If he wants to be a deranged NeverTrumper, that’s his prerogative, but Wallace is doing everything in his power to tilt the election toward his preferred candidate. Everyone can see it.

Biden: “I can’t keep track of all his ranting”
Wallace: *laughs* “I’m having trouble myself”
the mask is slipping, Chris #Debates2020

I blame Trumps campaign team for this, there is no way they should have ever agreed to have a Fox News Never-Trumper as the host.

Chris Wallace is shamelessly biased. It’s a beautiful demonstration of fake news in action. I’m actually glad it’s happening, because you can see it for yourself.

“Does Chris Wallace have to drive Biden home, too, or is he now off the clock?” asked a commenter by the screen name of “Rattling Bones” under Zerohedge’s writeup of the debate.
Yesterday we reported on a claim by author Dr. Jerome Corsi that Biden was given last night’s debate questions in advance of the debate by Wallace. Wallace has denied that claim.
