It doesn’t take much to see the disdain the Obama administration has toward Fox News, as Secretary of State John Kerry got into an angry exchange on Sunday with host Chris Wallace.
Kerry, pulling off a feat last accomplished by then-U.N. ambassador Susan Rice when she hit all five Sunday talk shows to mislead the country about an anti-Islamic video causing the attack in Benghazi, told Wallace at one point on “Fox News Sunday,” “You like to ask questions, but you don’t like to get answers!”
The tone was often bitter, such as when Wallace noted that the administration is looking to extend talks with Iran over a deal on their nuclear program, despite saying earlier this year that new sanctions would be put in place if Iran missed a deadline, which just happened to expire Sunday.
“I know you and others don’t ever want to give the Obama administration credit for almost anything, but the fact is this is the first administration to get a rollback in those ten years,” Kerry said. “Right now, Israel and the countries in the region and the world are safer.”
A remark that is sure to leave Israel thinking, with friends like this, who needs enemies?
Because Kerry droned on, Wallace tried to end the filibuster by interjecting a follow up question, which set Kerry off.
“No no no, Chris, you like to ask questions, but you don’t like to get answers!” he cried. “Let me answer! Let me answer! Let me finish my answer!”
Wallace persisted in trying to move to discussion along, to no avail.
“Chris, I don’t care how many questions you ask, I’m gonna finish my answer,” Kerry said.
Odds are, it may be a while before another Obama administration official sits down with Fox News.
