    Fox needs to kick that weak kneed Chris Wallace square in the ass and out the front door.
    Maria Bartiromo needs to fill spot that Sunday Morning "Fox News Sunday" .
    She is a tough ,rational ,common sense reporter that will ask the questions ,that Chris Wallace doesn't have the COURAGE to ask.
    Then move that program to the time slot to go right against NBC "Meet the dePressed"
    and CBS " Face the Nation" . Please Please Challenge that Sunday morning liberal one sided blather coming on National and Cable News .

    Wife and I were dedicated Fox News regular daily watchers...until Nov 2020. First we "tuned out" Chris Wallace..... Then Bret ONLY watch Hannity and occasionally Tucker and Laura Ingraham. We have "gone over" to Newsmax..particularly Greg Kelly....and OAN....the ONLY ones NOT 'roped in' by the uber lib, socialist and "America is bad" activist groups.
    Fox has "lost" it's "fair and balanced" approach, and gone the way of CNN, bowing to "social pressure" of the ''cancel culture" So sad than a once great network has gone soft.

      I've been doing the same thing. I don't know how the network can say their fair and balanced with a a liberal like Chris Wallace.

    Tim Scott hit a home run tonight! I’d be proud to call him my President one day! Truly Presidential material! America is not a racist country! Tim Scott walked the walk! Tim Scott’s rebuttal was so sincere! So refreshing! America is still the greatest country on earth. Don’t believe the doom and gloom power seeking radical democrats.

    I only watch Tucker, Hannity Ingraham & the Five and keep wondering why Wallace hasn't been fired. Just out of curiosity, I tuned in to Wallace on Sunday to see how he treated Biden's Press Secretary Psaki. He let her get away with lie after lie about the border crisis and never pressed her like he would any Republican. I fill in my Sunday news with Newsmax.

      Hey! Since to see someone who thinks like me! I might be replying kind of late (my wife and I were out of town for a week on our annual vacation), but I agree wholeheartedly with your comments. I am writing this comment right after flying home from Mexico late yesterday night. I woke up before 9am (I live in Atlanta), and decided to catch up with the news by watching Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, celebrating it's 25th Anniversary. After watching, I think it would be great to see him replaced ASAP by someone truly non-partisan and actually honest about everything and with everyone! I am tired about his "Latest Fox News Polls" that he worships, and seem contrary with actual public opinion. We need a great deal more information and details on these polls. I am still waiting for someone (anyone) to call him on these "polls" after his 17 years and his celebrating "his 25 years on FNS", also another lie! Thanks!

    Fox News seriously needs to dump Chris Wallace, Neil Cavuto, Juan Williams, Judge Nap, Geraldo Rivera, and Juan (twice). They are really contemptuous of their viewers and think they are smarter (maybe too smart) than everyone else. Wallace is weasel trading on his dead father's (Mike Wallace) name. Neil thinks he knows everything about everything when in fact, he's a dolt. Juan is the dumbest person on TV on any channel with one card to his came - R-A-C-I-S-T. If anyone disagrees with Juan, they are racist. All the bad things in the world happen because of racism. Meanwhile Juan is practiced in the art of distancing himself from being considered 'black' as his ethnicity is Panamanian. Although it is fun to watch Juan get smacked down on The Five by Watters and Gutfeld.

      I completely agree with the comments about Chris Wallace...he constantly letting Democrats off the hook. I’ve been watch Tucker, Hannity, and the Five too. If you aren’t watching Sunday Morning Futures you are missing out Maria Bartiroma is consistently holding Binden’s feet to the fire. She always has the top GOP voices on her show every Sunday. Lawrence Jones on Prime Time is also interesting...he’s not as polished as some yet, but always has unique perspective on Conservative issues.

    Can the USA survive the communist Biden regime? God I hope average Americans come to their senses and fix their 3 rd world elections to save their Republic! Voter ID is a requirement even in socialist Canada!

    I truly dislike Chris Wallace. So sorry that Fox News is becoming another CNN. Hope Tucker and some others switch to a more conservative channel soon.

      How do I feel about Fox having Wallace moderate the debate and the election coverage and the overall left swing. How do I feel about Fox deleting my posts on their on line coverage? I just cancelled my cable tv subscription. No more funding them or cnn. Sorry, Tucker, Greg and Jessee, but I refuse to be censored for no reason. Same for Youtube.

    I didn't leave FOX, Fox left me.

      Absolutely. 50% of Fox is strongly left leaning. I support debate and opinion but when they unfairly try to characterise our president as someone who led a violent insurrection, I am out. I listened to his speech and thought it no different than any of his other speeches. Every movement will have extremists on the wings. President Trump cannot be held responsible for their violent actions.

      President Trump has been a phenomenal president, probably the best ever. It is sad that so many in our country did not appreciate him and his tremendous defense of and advocacy for our democracy. It is sad that Biden supporters have flushed away a wonderful America in favor of a communist society. Our children and grandchildren have been robbed.

    I am down to watching only Tucker pretty much. Laura is arrogant and overbearing with her guests and Hannity is tiresome with his ego and conspiracy theories .... There are some other personalities that I like including Maria Bartiromo, Will Cain and Pete Hegseth and Rachel Duffy and Brian Kilmeade. The rest are interchangeable fillers and very left oriented. Not worth watching anymore ....

    Reasons for not watching at all would include Chris Wallace, Donna Brazillle, Juan Williams, Marie Barf, Chris Hann and Dana Perino

      I think one of the worst on FOX is Dana Perino,. People who stutter and stammer over simple sentences , on purpose , do it to gain or keep control of the audience and are very annoying to watch as they can't get out a single thought without blathering all over themselves. Dana does it constantly, and no matter what she implies, she really doesn't appear to be that smart.
