Fox News’ Chris Wallace, in his interview with Ted Olson (attorney for the American Foundation for Equal Rights), dishes out all the right wing talking points against Judge Vaughn Walker’s Proposition 8 decision: blatant judicial activism, an abdication of strict constructionism, the denial of the rights of the popular majority, not to mention the circumvention of states rights, etc.

Well, Ted Olson proceeds to articulately dismantles every single one of Wallace’s assertions so thoroughly and so coherently that Chris Wallace could do nothing, but compliment Olson at the end of the interview.   Enjoy!

    Good find. Man, he just did damage. That was the most clear and concise argument and explanation that I’ve heard yet.

    I’m shocked, to be honest, that Chris didn’t try to interrupt him more frequently. That’s generally Fox’s favorite strategy to silence their opposition.

      Yeah, I agree. Ted Olson basically debunked every talking point that that propaganda network spews on this subject 24/7.

      My guess is they won’t be inviting Ted Olson back any time soon. He clearly hurts the narrative Fox is desperate to maintain.
