Nicole Wallace Eviscerates Fox Hosts For Their Criticism of Fauci
Nicolle Wallace certainly has Conservative bonafides. She served as George W. Bush’s Communications Director for a year and a half and later worked on John McCain’s campaign team. Since working for MSNBC, though, her punditry has been more down the middle.
On Wednesday, the host took aim at some of her chief competition in Fox News and the way their anchors recently attacked Dr. Anthony Fauci. Wallace was highly critical of the network and their seemingly coordinated attack against one of the United States’ premier immunologists.
The anchor began her segment by showing clips of a number of Fox hosts blasting Fauci. She told her viewers, “Across several hours of Fox News last night, Trump’s most loyal defenders responded to the latest public health guidance by waging war on Tony Fauci.”
She continued, “Keep in mind they all work at a network associated with Fox News Business, that had to remove some hosts for their coronavirus coverage. I don’t really know where to start with that Fox News montage.”
Wallace concluded her comments by saying:
“Fox has not just played with fire, but been singed with the reckless commentary of people on their air. In fact, new White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany was in the segment with Trish Regan. I believe it was coverage like that conversation that got Trish Regan sidelined. All of those hosts I think have touted unproven drugs for which there are now FDA warnings for a couple of them, and last night going after Tony Fauci — while it was predictable — was still an abhorrent and pretty brazenly political effort to see.”
