Go ahead, act surprised.

Courtesy of Deadline:

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace will interview Russian President Vladimir Putin following next week’s summit with President Donald Trump in Helsinki, Finland.

The 30-minute interview will air Monday, July 16 on Fox News Channel, which claims it is the only interview that Putin will give to a Western journalist.

“No holds barred, no subjects off limits,” Wallace said on the America’s Newsroom show.

Wallace said he will ask Putin about Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and potential meddling in the upcoming midterm elections. In addition, Wallace said he will ask the Russian president about the summit with Trump and where the two sides stand on contentious issues like NATO, Syria, and Ukraine.

“I [also] want to delve into Vladimir Putin and what he wants for his country,” said Wallace, who last interviewed Putin in September 2005.

I imagine the first question will be “Does Donald Trump use good suction and maintain eye contact?” 

Of course, that will be asked off camera.

It is not at all surprising that Trump’s own personal propaganda outlet scored an interview with this Kremlin handler. 

And if anybody thinks this will be hard-hitting journalism they are morons. 

I imagine that Putin will get the questions beforehand, and have the right to reject the ones he does not want to answer. 

You know, just like Fox does with Trump.

    Can’t wait to miss it. I’m sure his father would have been so proud of his journalistic integrity.

      Or ‘his father’ rolls in his grave…

    “But it’s worse than that, he said, because Trump asked Russia to hack Clinton, and they redoubled their efforts the same day.

    “The president saying this is all a witch hunt,” Tapper said. “False, according to his own Justice Department. The president saying the hacks weren’t necessarily done by the Russians. False, according to his own Justice Department.””

    We could write up Putin’s answers to all those “hard-hitting questions” right now. Putin, too, lies like a rug. I bet that’s where T got the idea, because it’s worked so well for P over all these years.

      Too obvious, and no doubt Chris thinks that he has scored the interview of his lifetime. Puh-leeze.
      I was a big fan of 60 Minutes back in the day, and he will NEVER be his father. Look who he went to work for.

        If you look at Chris’ bio/history, no wonder he ended up at Fox.

          ” journalists have described Wallace’s style as confrontational. During President Ronald Reagan’s news conference in March 1987, when Reagan admitted to dealing arms for hostages, Wallace asked Reagan why he had denied that Israel was involved with the arms sales to Iran “when you knew that wasn’t true.””-“During the first Gulf War in 1991, he reported from Tel Aviv on the Iraqi Scud missiles attacks. At the time, the Israeli government did not want to advertise where the Scuds landed, in order to prevent the Iraqis from making adjustments to their launchers. On one episode of Nightline, Wallace started describing the location in Tel Aviv where a Scud missile landed. Nightline host Ted Koppel cut him off, and asked him to point to a general area rather than give a specific location.” ” on October 19, 2016, at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.>”Wallace controversially said, “it’s not my job” to fact-check candidates, but that it was the job of the opposing candidate.”<RiiiggghhhttT.

    He’s a shitty interviewer anyway and Putin will only roll out his stock answers- but it’ll be a big money spinner for Murdoch, who doesn’t give a flying about America, it’s just his piggy bank.

    You’d have to pay me a lot of money to watch that- I’ll be open to offers until an hour before the scheduled screening.

    Putin won’t get the questions beforehand, he’ll WRITE the damn questions to give to Wallace and tell Wallace how to respond.

  7. Fluffy July 13, 2018 at 9:23 pm

    It’s already making me anxious, this ridiculous one-sided, singularly granted view of an ‘no holds barred’ ‘interview’. This is blatant treason. Some HAS to stop this psychopath.

    OT?
    “Very early Saturday morning, Trump tweeted from Scotland, “So funny! I just checked out Fake News CNN, for the first time in a long time (they are dying in the ratings), to see if they covered my takedown yesterday of Jim Acosta (actually a nice guy). They didn’t! But they did say I already lost in my meeting with Putin. Fake News.”

    “Soon after, Acosta — who is also in Scotland covering Trump’s road trip that will end with the president meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin — returned fire, scoffing at the notion of a “takedown” and then issuing a challenge.

    “Takedown? I don’t think so. Perhaps we should even the playing field next time and you can take my question. (You’re right about one thing.. I am a nice guy)””
