First off, having to write this little bloggy blog is making me ill. Just the thought that in 2012, women as a whole, are under attack by the House GOP and ALL of the GOP Presidential candidates. It’s stunning that I have to even write anything about women’s rights being stripped. Especially women’s health rights. But why I’m doing this today is in response to Chris Wallace’s interview with Rick Santorum this past Sunday morning. Now I admit I don’t watch Fox News or even Fox on Sunday mornings and this is THE reason why. Santorum made the egregious claim that breast cancer is linked to abortions. This has been repeatedly debunked over and over and yet there he is still making the claim. And what did Chris Wallace do? Absolutely nothing. Great job. Please can we take away Chris Wallace’s label of ‘journalist’ now? Or ‘reporter’? Because he sucks at it. I would think a 5th grader would have said something to Santorum about that being NOT TRUE. Why didn’t you, Chris? You can’t call yourself a ‘journalist’ when all you’re doing is giving these candidates a platform to spew their lies to the American people, with NO challenge whatsoever. So all that makes you is a question asker. I’m sure your dad would be proud of your journalistic integrity. Oh wait. You don’t have integrity, which makes you a perfect anchor for Fox News.
And this going to anyone to interviews Rick Santorum in the future: Why are you so afraid to call him out on his lies? Ask him, “This theory of breast cancer being linked to abortion has been disproven over and over, so why are you talking about it as if it’s a fact?” What’s so hard about asking THAT kind of question?
I get this little blog means nothing to anyone at Fox News,or a Fox News viewer, but in the general election, people are going to see that you are a ‘news’ organization that just lets Republicans have a pulpit. No integrity.
