Fox News Host Chris Wallace seemed more like a boxing referee and less like a debate moderator during Tuesday’s debacle in Cleveland. Wallace faced scathing criticism from many for his performance in the first Presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. 

CNN’s Jake Tapper called the performance “the worst debate” he has ever seen. Adding that the contest was a “hot mess, inside a dumpster fire, inside a train wreck.”

Wallace’s performance was dubbed an “embarrassment” in a tweet sent out by former Democratic senator Claire McCaskill. “Wallace has a complete inability to handle this jerk. Does he know it?” 

“That was the worst presidential debate I have ever seen in my life,” said ABC political anchor George Stephanopoulos.

Biden and Trump exchanged fierce words as Wallace struggled to gain control of the debate. “It’s hard to get a word in with this clown,” Biden said. “You graduated either the lowest or almost the lowest in your class. Don’t ever use the word smart with me,” Trump said

After an extended speech by Trump, Biden said: “I can’t remember everything he was ranting about.” Wallace responded: “I’m having trouble myself.”

Ben Rhodes, a former deputy national security adviser under Barack Obama, tweeted, “Chris Wallace just disappeared.”

Journalist Josh Barro tweeted,“People are hating on Chris Wallace, but I think there was no way to moderate this debate effectively.”

CNN host Brian Stelter is set to depart after his weekly media show, Reliable Sources has been cancelled.

In a statement to NPR, Stelter said “It was a rare privilege to lead a weekly show focused on the press at a time when it has never been more consequential,” noting that Sunday would be the final episode.

According to a report from The Daily Beast, Stelter had been at odds with the direction of the network after the departure of CNN President Jeff Zucker.

Stelter came to CNN after working as a media reporter for The New York Times. CNN President Chris Licht informed Stelter, the host of the network’s longest running show, of the cancellation yesterday.

“CNN will end its Reliable Sources program on Sunday, August 21st. As a result Brian Stelter will leave the company. We appreciate his contributions to the network and wish him well as he embarks on new endeavors,” a network spokesperson told Mediaite.

Stelter had agreed to host a daily episode of Reliable Sources on CNN+, but the streaming platform was disbanded shortly thereafter.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham criticized a writer for The Atlantic  Tuesday after she claimed he attempted to “villainize” people who pray the rosary. 

In the article, Daniel Panneton asks why AR 15 rifles are showing up besides rosary beads online. 

“Just as the AR-15 rifle has become a sacred object for Christian nationalists in general, the rosary has acquired a militaristic meaning for radical-traditional (or “rad trad”) Catholics,” the article read.

“I am looking at the glass half-full,” Ingraham said. “Just because they demonize the rosary that must be something I should be doing more of.” 

Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo chimed in, offering that Christians have been praying the rosary for centuries adding the writer is probably,” filled with religious animus” and that “he’s afraid of faith.” 

Ingraham pointed out that The Atlantic has since changed the title of the article from “How the Rosary Became an Extremist Symbol” to “How Extremist Gun Culture Is Trying to Co-opt the Rosary.”
