With the corrupt media having all but carried Joe Biden across the finish line in the 2020 presidential election, enabling the 77-year-old Democrat to seldom venture any further from his basement than Pennsylvania, they then rushed to call the contested election.
And with that dirty work done, the same media, to include Fox News’ Chris Wallace, are browbeating Republicans who fail to acknowledge that Biden won the election — never mind that there are recounts to be conducted and pending legal actions.
But Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is not one to be bullied by a complicit media, and that includes Wallace, who compared him to a fanatical Japanese soldier in World War Two for questioning the election results.
Cruz cut the Fox News host off at the ankles when he tweeted: “Chris Wallace, who beclowned himself with a shamefully biased debate performance—universally panned—continues to demonstrate his rank partisanship. Urging that we follow the law & that election recounts be actually completed is not somehow undermining democracy.”

The Republican senator was responding to a tweet from talk show host Mark Levin, who said of Chris Wallace: “This is way out of line. Keep your politics to yourself, Mr. Journalist. You’re not just showing ankle, you’ve undressed yourself.”
On Fox News Sunday, Wallace cited some of the most liberal Republicans who were quick to accept the election results, people like Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, to go after Republicans crying foul over apparent improprieties in the counting process.
“It would seem to me that Republicans on Capitol Hill have a role to play in this, very few of them have said, ‘Look, you pursue your legal options but damp down the rhetoric,’ like Mitt Romney, like Pat Toomey,” Wallace said.
“There are a lot who are just silent and there are some, I mentioned Ted Cruz, who are like the Japanese soldiers who come out 30 years after the end of the war — out of the jungle — and say, ‘Is the fight still going on?’” he added.
Keep in mind that the contested 2000 election between George W. Bush and Al Gore was not called until Dec. 12, 2000.
To show just how much of a bubble the elitist media exists in, Fox News anchor Julie Banderas rushed to Wallace’s defense, responding to Cruz to insist that her colleague “does not show bias and those who disagree don’t like tough and fair questions.”
I’m not sure what “beclowned” means but I do know the definition of a capital J “Journalist.” A person who seeks and reports the truth without fear or favor. Like it or not, Chris Wallace does not show bias and those who disagree don’t like tough and fair questions. https://t.co/MqIEk3waVz

Such an assessment could be confused as a de facto admission by Banderas that she didn’t watch the presidential debate Wallace moderated.
Either that, or she’s hoping her spirited defense proves to be a career booster.
Fox News is feeling the heat for its election coverage, beginning with the network’s rush to call Arizona.
Anger grew on Sunday, when Fox News joined with the liberal media in calling the election on Biden’s behalf, even though President Trump has not conceded and his campaign is challenging the outcomes in key battleground states.
There is tremendous frustration on the right over how this election played out.
Beginning with a corrupt media, which proved to be Trump’s true opponent, working feverishly to poison the minds of the American electorate on Biden’s behalf. Adding to the frustration is the outright censorship of conservatives happening on Facebook and Twitter.
Adding to the mix is the in-your-face celebrations by uninformed young Americans who couldn’t care less if election integrity has been compromised, as long as their guy won. And then there’s the Democrats who have been calling Trump supporters racists and Nazis for four years running now having the audacity to call for “unity.”
Outspoken conservative actor James Woods captured this frustration well with the following tweet — Caution: Adult language.
One thing is certain, given the choice of retaining viewers or keeping Chris Wallace, Fox News appears to have chosen the latter:
Chris Wallace should be anathema in all media after that debate performance. It was the worst in our history.
Had a ‘moderator’ treated Biden in similar fashion, I would have enjoyed it, and then I would have called for them to be anathema in all media afterwards, too. https://t.co/YlPJxoM96c

The new @FoxNews. Chris Wallace’s biases of omission played a big role in this corrupt election process that was so stacked against @realDonaldTrump. And from what I saw most Fox hosts defended him after his awful & unfair debate moderator performance. @toddstarnes https://t.co/7C8nRIeWMi

Chris Wallace would have to get 5 promotions just to be a dumbass.

For me the betrayal has been sharp and clear since the first confrontation with Chris Wallace
