Ed Bark in the Dallas Morning News writes about Fox News Sunday’s 10th Anniversary and includes an interview with show host Chris Wallace which make some news because Wallace reveals that Ted Kennedy has agreed to be on the show for the first time ever.
And on the seventh day, the sleaze rests, at least on TV’s serious-minded, mostly well-mannered Sunday morning news shows.
“There’s zero pressure on us to do Natalee Holloway, Michael Jackson or a car chase,” says Chris Wallace. “It’s a tabloid-free zone, and I’m thrilled to be a part of that.”Mr. Wallace presides over Fox News Sunday, which will be celebrating its 10th anniversary this Sunday. He left ABC News in late 2003 to replace Tony Snow as the program’s headmaster. Now Mr. Snow is the brand-new White House press secretary after previously working for the first President Bush. He’ll also be Mr. Wallace’s “Power Player of the Week” on Sunday’s closing segment. Such luck.
“I think Tony will succeed in lowering the temperature between the White House and the press corps, which is up to a boil at this point,” Mr. Wallace says in a telephone interview. “I think he’ll be able to defuse some of the ill feeling. He’s a smart, charming guy who understands what reporters do for a living.”
The 10th-anniversary edition additionally has an exclusive interview with Josh Bolton, his first since becoming President Bush’s new chief of staff.
