Chris Wallace Suffering ‘Daily Breakdowns’ After Big Failure at CNN

There’s an old idiom, “The grass always looks greener on the other side of the fence.” It cautions against making an envious and perhaps mistaken comparison between a current situation and a potential new opportunity.

Veteran news anchor Chris Wallace must have forgotten that nugget of wisdom. In December 2021, Wallace left his secure position at top-rated Fox News and joined the failing “competitor” CNN.

Now, rumors suggest Wallace is unhappy and insecure in his new gig.

Journalist Jon Nicosia, a former managing editor of Mediaite and current president of News Cycle Media, shared the story on Twitter.

“SOURCE: Chris Wallace is ‘having daily breakdowns’ over the ‘miserable launch’ of CNN+. Wants a ‘CNN show or is threatening to walk’ they go on,” Nicosia wrote. “‘He is having staffers count how many times a day his promo is playing.’”

The irony is the new CNN+ service just had a titanic failure of a launch in March. There are already discussions of company layoffs happening as soon as May.

It seems not many customers want to pay for the type of programming they were not even watching when there was no extra cost for it.

The supposedly seasoned news veteran Wallace, 74, staked what remains of his career on this shaky proposition.

It was assumed Wallace would have his own show on the streaming service. It’s also assumed CNN paid him generously to switch. Wallace had been with Fox 18 years, and the Los Angeles Times estimated his annual salary there to be at least $5 million.

Wallace wasn’t gracious about leaving Fox either.

Besides making the announcement abruptly, Wallace trashed his former network in a New York Times interview published in March.

He sneered at the integrity of the network and its viewers, saying about his long tenure on Fox: “But I can certainly understand where somebody would say, ‘Gee, you were a slow learner, Chris.’”

Now Wallace is left griping about his diminished options as the CNN brand is in freefall.

Having his staff track make a daily, strange ritual of monitoring and recording the number of times his promotional clips are played suggests Wallace is paranoid about his stature at CNN, even as the network has struggled with multiple scandals.

CNN president Mark Zucker resigned in February after allegations of inappropriate conduct. In December 2021, anchor Chris Cuomo was fired and two producers left the company after being accused of sex crimes involving children.

Fox News does not miss Chris Wallace.

In fact, Maria Bartiromo, a Fox News and Fox Business Network host, has twice called out the former anchor for running interference for Joe Biden in this infamous exchange from the first presidential campaign debate on Sept. 29, 2020. Wallace was the debate moderator:

When the Hunter Biden laptop surfaced in a bombshell New York Post report two weeks later, it would almost certainly have been taken with more credibility if Wallace had not interfered like that. Maybe  Twitter and Facebook, not to mention the mainstream news media, would not have felt as safe squelching the story if it had been treated more seriously on a national stage by a well-known newsman.

Despite being on Fox, Chris Wallace was never a conservative, or even an objective journalist. He was always a part of the establishment media, concerned with advancing the establishment’s narrative, not delivering the news.

At least with him on the sinking ship of CNN, a lot fewer people will be exposed to Wallace’s brand of bias.

Chris Wallace Gets OWNED By Maria Bartiromo for Covering Up Biden Family Crimes During 2020 Presidential Debate [Video]

Moderator Chris Wallace Worked Hard to Prevent President Trump’s Attempts to Bring Up Hunter Biden’s Crimes During the 2020 Presidential Debate

Sunday morning Maria Bartiromo tore into the media, including former colleague Chris Wallace, for their coverup of the Hunter Biden laptop story. She used a clip of Chris Wallace trying his hardest during the 2020 Presidential Debate to prevent President Trump from bringing to light Hunter Biden’s illicit payments from Moscow.

The relevant part of the debate’s transcript can be found below:

From the Gateway Pundit:

President Trump: So why was he given tens of millions of dollars.

Joe Biden: He wasn’t given tens of millions of dollars. That’s totally, that’s totally been discredited.

Chris Wallace: President Trump, we’ve already been through this. I think the American people would rather hear about more substantial subjects…

President Trump: (interrupts)

Chris Wallace: Well, you know as the moderator, sir, I’m going to make a call here.

President Trump: Three and a half million dollars from the mayor of Moscow…

Joe Biden: That is not true.

President Trump: Why did he get it?

Wallace injected his leftist beliefs repeatedly throughout the debate, culminating in a shouting match with President Trump as he desperately tried to prevent all mention of Hunter Biden’s criminal behavior. That Wallace was even selected for the moderator position is an affront to fairness, but of course Democrats never play fair.

Maria Bartiromo tears into  not only Wallace but the media as a whole for covering up the laptop initially and for refusing to acknowledge the possibility that Hunter Biden’s crimes are linked to his father.

Bartiromo raises the question: How could Biden be tough on countries which own his son? Simple. He Can’t.
