Fox News’ Wallace Calls Out ‘Opinion People’ On Own Network For Twisting Mueller Letter

Fox News host Chris Wallace sought to set the record straight Wednesday, urging viewers not to take “opinion people” — including those on his own network — at face value in regards to their commentary on special counsel Robert Mueller’s letter to Attorney General William Barr.

“I know there are some people who don’t think this March 27 letter is a big deal,” Wallace said. “Some opinion people, some opinion people who appear on this network, who may be pushing a political agenda.”

“But, you know, we have to deal in facts,” he continued. “And the fact is that this letter from the special counsel, and it was one of at least three contacts with the Attorney General between March 25 and March 27, was a clear indication that [Mueller] was upset, very upset, with the letter that had been sent out by the attorney general, and wanted it changed, or wanted it at least added to and the attorney general refused to do so. He felt the attorney general’s letter was inaccurate.”

This take varies wildly from some of Wallace’s peers’ coverage, including Laura Ingraham’s, who called the letter a “non-story.”
