Two GOP presidential candidates appeared on the Sunday morning talk shows yesterday: Newt Gingrich was on "Meet the Press" and Ron Paul appeared on "Fox News Sunday. "  While NBC's David Gregory basically accused Gingrich of being a racist, Paul received much better treatment from Chris Wallace, who was tough on Paul during the first GOP debate.  "You are being taken, I think it's fair to say, more seriously by the media time this time -- frankly, including me -- because your issues, limiting the size and scope of government, adhering to constitutional principles, are center stage for the Republican Party this time around," Wallace told Paul.  What followed was an interesting 10 minutes in which, once again, Paul argued for drug decriminalization, an end to U.S. militarism, the abolishment of FEMA and the perils of the IMF.  Some choice quotes:  • "The IMF is a threat to us. " • "I don't want to run people's lives and run the world and run the economy.

"Could people like Bob Dole, even Ronald Reagan -- could you make it in today's Republican Party?" Chris Wallace of "Fox News Sunday" asked former Senate Majority Leader and 1996 GOP presidential nominee Bob Dole. "I doubt it," Mr. Dole replied. "Reagan wouldn't have made it. Certainly, Nixon couldn't have made it, because he had ideas and -- We might have made it, but I doubt it. " Let me state up front that I have incredible respect and admiration for Mr. Dole. He's an American hero and was a politician of undisputed integrity.

Fox News, the nation's edgiest television news shop, announced yesterday it will entrust its Sunday morning talk show to ABC News' Chris Wallace, an old-fashioned correspondent known for a painstaking approach to journalism. Wallace will begin his new duties in mid-November. "It adds another big horse to our stable," said Brit Hume, anchor and Washington managing editor for Fox News. Wallace, 56, takes over from Tony Snow, who served as host of Fox News Sunday since its creation in 1996.

I hate the unprecedented extent to which Fox News has involved itself in Republican politics, but I have to admit the channel presented a first-class, rousing and illuminating debate among GOP candidates Thursday night. Most of the credit has to go to anchorman Bret Baier and Sunday show host Chris Wallace who were superb in their prepaartion and questions. I cannot remember seeing a moderator this side of CNN's Wolf Blitzer who opened a debate with a  more focused, well-researched barrage of questions than Baier.

Jon Stewart's war with Chris Wallace and Fox News is still raging on. Stewart returned to his favorite target last night, insisting that Fox apologize for its 21 false statements as documented by PolitiFact.  He also alleged Fox engages in a double standard, in which commentary that favors Democrats is considered part of a vast left-wing conspiracy, while analysis that favors Republicans is seen as evidence of fairness.  In the end, Stewart...

Three days after TV funnyman Jon Stewart and Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace sat down and discussed bias in political coverage, the debate is still raging.  Last night on his program, Stewart apologized for making a false statement to Wallace in which he claimed that Fox News watchers are "the most consistently misinformed viewers. " "As it turns out, I was misinformed," Stewart said Tuesday, before joking: "Which should not be surprising because I do watch a lot of Fox News.

To Josh Selby, the Memphis Grizzlies represent a clean slate, and a team that doesn't care about his past, only his potential. To the Memphis Grizzlies — who snagged the Lake Clifton graduate with the 49th pick in Thursday's NBA Draft — Selby represents an investment of minimal risk, but one that still has the potential for a big return. It wasn't a marriage many people saw coming. The Grizzlies never even had Selby in for a workout. "I was very surprised," Selby said. "I didn't have any contact with them [before the draft]

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Fundraisers on the left and right are salivating now that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has declared, "I'm in" the 2008 presidential race. On the left, feminists will likely hail her as the reincarnation of suffragette Susan B. Anthony. On the right, conservatives will portray her as a cross between Lady Macbeth and Bonnie Parker. Conservatives should be careful. The nonstop attacks on Bill Clinton did not keep him from winning in 1992, nor did his personal scandals prevent his re-election four years later.

Comedian Jon Stewart appeared on Fox News Sunday yesterday and participated in a somewhat heated (but relatively polite) exchange with host Chris Wallace.  It was a pretty good debate ( The Sun's venerated TV critic David Zurawik even got a shout-out) but both Stewart and Wallace were, in my opinion, somewhat wrong.  Stewart is partially wrong when he says that Fox News is "A biased organization, relentlessly promoting an ideological agenda under the rubric of being a news organization" -- and not only because he uses the word "rubric" instead of "guise.

No one can carry water for the GOP and suck up to conservatives like Sean Hannity. And Monday night, he was at the top of his game "interviewing" the GOP's hottest candidate, Michele Bachmann, while mending the 24-hour rift between her and Fox News. Mending the rift that started on "Fox News Sunday" when Wallace asked the candidate if she was a "flake" was the real business of the conversation that took place during the first 15 minutes of "Hannity" Monday. The host also, though, had to lob a few softballs her way so she could try and explain away -- or at least minimize --  the incredible gaffe of describing Waterloo, Iowa, earlier Monday as the home of the late movie star John Wayne, when it was really the home of John Wayne Gacy, a notorious serial killer.

Just one week after a winning interview with comedian Jon Stewart, Fox News host Chris Wallace stumbled in his conversation with what looked like a much friendlier guest, Michele Bachmann, the hottest new GOP presidential candidate. In response to what some analysts see as partisan and sexist claims that's she's "ditsy," Wallace asked her if she is a "flake" on his "Fox News Sunday" show. She wasn't amused. Neither were her followers -- or, apparently, the powers that be at Fox. Wallace offered a near-instant apology in his weekly "post-show" video.
