Nicolle Wallace Puts Chris Christie Through The Wringer Over Major Gap In His Book

MSNBC‘s Nicole Wallace grilled former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) Tuesday for writing a book about liars and conspiracy theorists who failed to go after one of the biggest players in the field.

“The book is about conspiracies and lies, and you really don’t take it in Fox news. Why not?” Wallace asked. “Have you seen the…. Tucker Carlson program?”

Christie, who appeared on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” for his forthcoming book “Republican Rescue: Saving the Party From Truth Deniers, Conspiracy Theorists, and the Dangerous Policies of Joe Biden‘, said he doesn’t watch Carlson’s program and was ‘not really aware’ of what he’s doing.

“It’s a book of truth-deniers, conspiracy theorists on the cover, and you attacked CNN, The New York Times, and MSNBC and not Fox?” asked Wallace.

Christie argued that he did not attack them as deniers of the truth, but labeled them as biased.

“Is bias more dangerous for the country than conspiracy theorists?” Wallace interrupted.

Christie insisted that he address that in the third part of the book and that Wallace mixed up two different parts.

“I don’t think it’s an intellectually fair business to make conspiracy theories without tackling Fox News,” Wallace said.

“Well, you can write that in your book,” Christie snapped.

“I’m not trying to save the Republican Party,” Wallace retorted.

Carlson, whose program is one of the most-watched programs in all cable news, spends hours of airtime spreading misinformation and fueling culture wars on a wide variety of topics.

Fox News has won An lawsuit for defamation who was brought against Carlson last year by… argue successfully, according to a judge, “that given Mr. Carlson’s reputation, any reasonable viewer ‘arrives'[s] with skepticism’ about the statement he makes.”

Christie, now a critic of former President Donald Trump, has made a spate of media appearances to promote his book and urge Republicans to let go of Trump’s lies about the 2020 election and move on.
