Chris Wallace Makes A Funny About Brit Hume's Lack Of Objectivity

Yes, lack.

"One of the things Wallace credits with FNC's success is separation. 'We've been very careful to keep our opinion separate. Our news division takes care of that,' he says. 'That's done us well and I think that's why you see these numbers. See, when Brit or Shepard Smith are on, that's our news division talking. That's the way we've always done it.'"

The article linked above was about Fox News getting great ratings for the RNC convention. It isn't surprising. Here in the DC area a lot of people tune in to Sonny Jurgenson and Sam Huff on the radio when they're doing Redskins games. Why? Because you like to hear the announcers who are in the tank for the home team.

Same thing.
