Newt Gingrich: 'More Inclined to Run (For President) Than Not Run' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Dec 6th 2010 5:40PM
Potential presidential candidates usually play coy about their intention to run, right up until the moment that they officially throw their hat in the ring. However, former GOP Speaker of the House and current Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich is bucking that convention.

In an interview with Chris Wallace, on 'Fox News Sunday' (Sundays, 9 AM ET on Fox), Gingrich strongly hinted that he will be seeking the republican nomination in 2012.

"Callista (Gingrich's wife) and I will make a decision probably at the end of February beginning of March," he told Wallace when asked about his presidential aspirations.

Then Gingrich added this:

"We're much more inclined to run than not run, and I think everything we've done over the last year, talking to friends, thinking things through, has made us more inclined to believe it's doable."

If the 67-year-old, who hasn't held elected office since 1998, does seek the nomination, there's a good chance he will be opposed by fellow Fox News contributors Mike Huckabee and Sarah Palin.

Claire DanesClaire Danes has mostly stuck to movies for the past 15 years, but the actress could once again grace our TV screens.

The former 'My So-Called Life' star is in talks to star in a new Showtime pilot, according to TV Guide. Danes would play a CIA agent investigating a U.S. Marine who went missing during the invasion of Baghdad in 'Homeland.'

Earlier this year Danes won an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries Emmy for her portrayal of award-winning author Temple Grandin in the HBO biopic about the autistic animal husbandry expert.

Sarah Palin Defends Her Reality Show: 'Wasn't Ronald Reagan an Actor?' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Nov 1st 2010 5:37PM
On 'Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace' (Sunday, 9 AM ET on Fox) Sarah Palin fought back against criticism from Karl Rove that she might lack the "gravitas" to be president because she will be starring in a reality TV show called 'Sarah Palin's Alaska.'

This was Rove's full quote, which Chris Wallace read to Palin:

"With all due candor, appearing on your own reality show on the Discovery Channel, I am not certain how that fits in the American Calculus of 'that helps me see you in the Oval Office' . . . There are high standards that the American people have for (the presidency), and they require a certain level of gravitas."

"I agree with that, that the standards should be high for anyone who would ever want to run for president," Palin shot back. "Like, um, wasn't Ronald Reagan an actor, wasn't he in Bedtime for Bonzo -- bozo, something. . . "

The name of the film Palin was reaching for was 'Bedtime for Bonzo,' in which Reagan played a Professor trying to teach chimpanzees human emotions. The former Governor may have a point: compared to such a timeless classic like 'Bonzo,' 'Sarah Palin's Alaska' may end up looking downright Reaganesque by comparison.

Fox News Anchor Confuses Chris Wallace With Chris Matthews (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Apr 9th 2010 4:00PM
During a newsbreak on 'Glenn Beck' (weekdays, 5PM ET on FNC), Fox News anchor Patti Ann Browne, formerly of MSNBC, confuses Chris Wallace with Chris Matthews, the host of MSNBC's 'Hardball.' Oops.

To his credit, Wallace doesn't point out Browne's mistake. Instead, he blinks in surprise, laughs slightly, then gamely proceeds with a tease for a special report.

Watch the video after the jump.

Election Night: Fox News (Part 2)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 4th 2008 11:21PM

Everyone's getting bored now. Megyn is running around talking to people all over the set and trying to make love to her "launchpad," while others are handing out cookies and snacks. When the election is turning into a landslide (which is how Fox News would have us think), I guess they're at a loss as to how to fill the time. "We booked the whole night for this coverage. Vamp! Vamp!" For more on why I love Fox News Election coverage, flip to the other side.

I think it's time to shake things up. Go crazy and call the whole election for McCain. Or even Nader. People will look back on it fondly and you'll be infamous in history. Just picture Brit Morgan's dour skull with the skin melting off looking at the camera with the words "McCain Projected to Win Presidency" below him. Legendary!

More from Keith Olbermann: Special comments, and reuniting with Dan Patrick

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 4th 2008 6:23PM
Ketih OlbermannWhen I spoke to Keith Olbermann at the press tour a few weeks back, I mainly wanted to get his thoughts about the comments that Fox News' Chris Wallace made earlier in the tour. Essentially, Wallace said that MSNBC isn't objective in its election coverage because they have commentators like Olbermann -- who are perceived to be "in the tank" for Barack Obama -- serve as anchors. Olbermann's remarks in response were pointed, to say the least.

But while I had Keith poised in front of my voice recorder, I wanted to ask him some questions about the origin of his Special Comments, how he thinks people determine their perception of each of the news networks, and what it will be like to sit down and do highlights with his old SportsCenter partner Dan Patrick on NBC's Football Night in America. The remainder of the interview is after the jump; we pick up with Olbermann talking about Wallace's "In the tank" line.

Olbermann snipes back at Chris Wallace and Fox News - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jul 21st 2008 12:23PM
Keith OlbermannI caught up to Keith Olbermann at NBC's all star party last night, and talked to him a little bit about the election, the origin of his "Special Comments," and getting back to doing highlights with Dan Patrick. More on that in a few days. But the first thing on my mind was if he read the comments uttered by Fox News' Chris Wallace earlier in the tour, notably that MSNBC's election coverage was biased because commentators like Olbermann are used as anchors.

"Oh yeah, I thought they were disingenuous and ill-informed," he told me, "because during the primaries as I'm sitting there, and we have the other monitors on, and a couple of weeks at least I saw O'Reilly on in the middle of the primaries, one week Laura Ingrahm filling in for O'Reilly, and Hannity and Colmes at 9:00. It's the same thing, whether you officially say, 'Well, this is not our election coverage between 8 and 10, but between 6 and 7 was, and 10 to 12 was ... ' It's a game being played that's pretty silly."

Chris Wallace rips MSNBC... and us - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jul 16th 2008 12:03AM
Chris WallaceI wasn't going to write an individual post about Monday's Fox News session, but a few things happened near the end of the panel that compelled me to write a bit about it, even if it's more than a day later. The panel, which consisted of Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace, former Bush administration guru and current Fox News analyst Karl Rove, Harold Howard Wolfson, a newly-hired Fox News analyst who worked as the communications director on Hillary Clinton's campaign, and Fox News executive vice president John Moody.

I figured that the presence of Karl Rove on the panel would have had the drooling critics in the crowd ready to pounce. But, for the most part, the press conference started very cordially. Things started to get testy near the end though. What is surprising, however, is that the reporters didn't have more problems with Chris Wallace than Rove.

Is Mike Wallace really all done with TV?

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 10th 2008 9:25AM
WallaceHave we seen the last of Mike Wallace on TV? If you believe his son, Fox newsman Chris Wallace, the answer is yes. Mike Wallace, who has been recovering from a January triple bypass heart surgery, recently had a fall in his home in New York. Fortunately, Mike wasn't badly hurt, but the doctors are watching him closely in the hospital because of the complications from his heart surgery. He is on blood thinner because of the bypass and if he starts to bleed from the fall, he could bleed out.

According to Wallace's son, Chris, host of Fox News Sunday, the heart "is working fine," but he added that his 90 year old father is done with TV. Does CBS know that for sure? I mean, will there be no future Mike Wallace interviews or special interviews? He retired from 60 Minutes in 2006, but remains with the network as Correspondent Emeritus. Chris made it sound like there will be no more TV ever for Mike Wallace.

He also said of his father, "He's doing really well," having spent time with him while he was in New York at Fox's studios to report on the presidential primaries.

Chris Wallace doesn't want Katie Couric's job

by Allison Waldman, posted May 18th 2008 3:02PM
Mike + Chris WallaceAccording to the Hollywood Reporter, Chris Wallace is on the short list for replacements if -- more likely when -- Katie Couric departs the CBS Evening News anchor desk. Wallace, son of the CBS elder statesmen and 60 Minutes attack dog Mike Wallace, has been host of Fox News Sunday since 2003. But the guy isn't interested.

"As much as I grew up in CBS and as much as I associate that anchor chair with Walter Cronkite and the history of broadcasting, I have never been so happy as I have working the last four-plus years at Fox. I suspect I've had a much better last couple of years than Katie Couric."

A Daily Show: February 5, 2008

by Annie Wu, posted Feb 6th 2008 7:29AM
Jon StewartFirst of all, anyone that missed Monday's episode, needs to read up and watch some videos as quickly as possible. Contrary to what Jon said, it was most definitely not "the stupidest f*cking thing anyone's ever seen", because it was epic and I couldn't get enough. I absolutely didn't mind that it was just silly writers' strike period filler. Man, forget Super Tuesday coverage, I wanted to see more people to get thrown down stairs.

Clinton goes ballistic on FOX - VIDEO

by Joel Keller, posted Sep 25th 2006 12:33PM
Clinton goes apeshit on FOXWhat happens when you mix Bill Clinton, a morning issues show produced by the conservative FOX News Channel, and a question that he didn't do enough to capture Osama bin Laden? You get the tirade below, which aired yesterday morning on FOX News Sunday. When host Chris Wallace questions the former president on how his administration failed to get bin Laden, Clinton got increasingly upset, to the point where he was almost yelling at Wallace. I could go over what he said, but you're better off watching the ten-minute video and you can decide for yourself whether he is right or not. Embedded video is after the jump; it's been one of YouTube's most-watched videos to date.

By the way, here is Wallace's reaction, care of FishbowlDC.

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 23rd 2006 7:00PM
Mike WallaceAnd not only as the new anchor at The CBS Evening News. Wallace told CNN's Larry King that being on 60 Minutes will be a part of the deal. He also says that everyone at CBS will have to take a pay cut if they get her. (Not sure if he was laughing when he said this or not.)

Other tidbits from the interview:

  • He likes Lou Dobbs and Charlie Gibson
  • He doesn't watch much network news.
  • He has never met President Bush.
  • Richard Nixon once offered him a job as his press secretary.
  • He thinks Anderson Cooper is "a hell of a reporter."
