Bill Clinton vs. Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday

Last night, Clinton was set up interviewed by Chris Wallace on Fox News. In typical Fox News fashion, Wallace went after Clinton, trying to say he didn’t do enough to capture Bin Laden. Clinton was invited on the show to discuss his work on climate change and problems in developing countries.

After a few jabs from Wallace, Clinton appeared flustered and said,

You set this meeting up because you were going to get a lot of criticism from your viewers because Rupert Murdoch’s supporting my work on climate change.

And you came here under false pretenses and said that you’d spend half the time talking about — you said you’d spend half the time talking about what we did out there to raise $7-billion-plus in three days from 215 different commitments. And you don’t care.

The interview is one of the best I’ve seen and Clinton appeared ready for the ‘fair and balanced’ style of Fox. I think he made Wallace look like an idiot. My favourite part of the interview came when Clinton says to Wallace, “you’ve got that little smirk on your face and you think you’re so clever.” Great stuff!
