"None Of Your Business": Chris Wallace, Best Interview Ever

NYT |

Wow. This officially counts as the third time that I have been blown away by the rudeness of Chris Wallace. This week Wallace sat for an interview with Deborah Solomon, the excellent NYT mag interviewer who always manages to tease out telling details from her subjects in a few short questions. Here's the telling detail she teased out of Wallace: He's a jerk.

Here's proof:

You became host of only three years ago, replacing Tony Snow, who later became the White House press secretary. Why did he leave television?

CW: Because he was interested in becoming a radio star.

That doesn't sound very convincing.

CW: I am sorry you're not persuaded.

Glib answers verging on the snotty, but to be fair the question wasn't about Wallace. Jury's out.

What political party do you belong to?

CW: None of your business.

Jury's in! Is it really necessary to be so rude? No, it is not.

Your father, the legendary newsman Mike Wallace, has been a vocal critic of the war in Iraq.

CW: Is that a question?

No, it's a statement.

Here's another statement for you, Chris: You're kind of a prick. Oh sorry, am I being hasty? Let's see:

If I have a follow-up question, may I call you tomorrow?

CW: You're done. I didn't have an opportunity for a follow-up question with Bill Clinton. You get your chance, you take advantage of it.

2. I only hope he's one of the first to get the bum's rush
when Fox's ratings dive so low they have to reshuffle the line-up. So much for talent and integrity being an inherited trait. :eyes:
