I disagree, Eduardo. As, I suspect, would Sir Walter Raleigh.

"He deliberately crossed the line in his Bachmann interview to curry favor with Stewart's lefty audience."
Yes. We call that "McCain Syndrome". It's incurable.

Mike looks like some bizarre blending of George Hamilton and Emperor Palpatine.

(Ignore the person being interviewed in the video below if you like, that's not what this comment is about.)
I've got no use for Chris Wallace either. IP, you're absolutely correct in saying that this isn't journalism. (What he should've done was asked Bachmann why her lying ass voted for the stimulus package!) In fact, either there is no longer such a thing as journalism, or the only place it can really be found is on the independent internet.
That said, the interview in the video below and others like it are breaking ground in a new low for the long-dead profession. (Granted, I don't watch much tv, however...) I've never seen a reporter literally serve as a surrogate for the president or some other sparring partner in such a blatant fashion before.
"I know you are an outspoken critic of such and such policy, but that goes against His Holy Greatness, the President. He believes dissidents like you are fucking dangerous and must be derided because of blah, blah, blah. Here's what he said today...(clip) So don't you think it's unAmerican to let the enemies of this supposed democracy know that we actually have disagreements here and that our President, Peace be upon Him, is merely a de facto dictator, not an actual one? Do you really want our current enemy and former ally, Irrelevant-Petty-Dictator-From-Some-Desert-Backwater, to think the President, His Mightiness, has a small penis, or even no dick at all?
"Yes, yes, the Constitution and all. But if, despite the fact you blew the Dictator-In-Fact's argument out of the water, I, drone-like, ignore your answer long enough and pretend that he tore you a new asshole, would you please play along and pretend, for our viewers, that it was you - and not he - who's had a new asshole torn?
"Despite your non-compliance, thank you for complying. We must move on. In other 'news...'"
What bullshit. At least she can read it all clearly.

You know, I've been reading about this for a couple days and until you posted a picture, I'd assumed all along that this was the "thrill up my leg" guy. Turns out that was Chris Matthews. Just in case anyone else had the same misconception. In any event I don't have a whole lot of use for either of 'em.

This post originally contained two videos that aren't here anymore.
One of Chris Wallace asking Michelle Bachmann if she's a flake.
And one in which CHris Wallace apologizes for asking Michelle Bachmann if she's a flake.
Just so you know.
