Late Saturday night, word started to travel that James Comey and Adam Schiff would be appearing on Fox News early Sunday morning with Chris Wallace.

When word got to Trump, well, let’s just say he was less than pleased.

Fox News Betrayal

President Trump has always treated Fox News as his safe haven.

As the only network with a conservative presence, he believes the network needs to take up the conservative cause and not give liberals or those meaning him harm a platform to speak.

So, it was not exactly a surprise when he sent out these tweets after the news broke about the Schiff and Comey interviews…

As it turns out, Trump had every right to be concerned.

The interview with Chris Wallace and James Comey was good, as Wallace put Comey on the spot several times.

More importantly, he called out Comey whenever he tried to spin the IG report, which he did often.

When Schiff sat down, however, it was a completely different story.

When Wallace questioned him about the Nunes memo, Schiff stated that he did not have all the information at that time, so his defense of the FISA was warranted.

That, however, is not the case, because Schiff had access to the same documents Nunes did.

Point being, Wallace let Schiff get away with a blatant lie rather than hitting him with a follow-up that would have exposed him for the liar he truly is.

Bad Timing

The timing of the tweets by Trump has also served up the liberal media with even more fodder.

Earlier in the week, while giving a speech, Wallace stated, “I believe that President Trump is engaged in the most direct sustained assault on freedom of press in our history.”

Wallace, however, does not talk about all the fake news stories that have hit this administration where the media is never held accountable.

The plain fact is the media cannot afford to get it wrong, but these days, there is a clear rush to print without even vetting stories, as we saw with ABC News and the Syria story.

If you want the President to stop attacking, Mr. Wallace, tell your buddies to clean up their act!
