Journalists and anchors at Fox News strongly criticized their media colleague, Chris Wallace, for showing clear favoritism for Democratic candidate Joe Biden in his debate with President Donald Trump on Sept. 29.

In addition to criticizing the lack of restraint during the hour and a half that the meeting lasted, several of his colleagues marked the Fox host who forced Trump to debate with him as well.

“Trump is debating the moderator and Biden,” tweeted Fox commentator Laura Ingraham.

Her colleague, host Greg Gutfeld, expressed the same sentiment by retweeting several Twitter users, including commentator Dan Bongino, who referred to how the Republican candidate was debating with two people at once.

Gutfeld also referred to the bias that many criticized the moderator for favoring the Democratic candidate, noting, “That was not good” for Wallace to laugh along with Biden at one point.

The first debate between Trump and Biden took place in the city of Cleveland, Ohio, 35 days before the elections, as part of the campaign for the U.S. presidential elections to be held on Nov. 3.

The event began at 9:00 pm (Eastern Time) and was divided into six topics (management and history, Supreme Court, the CCP Virus pandemic, economy, Race and Violence; and the Integrity of Elections). Each segment was 15 minutes long.

With the exception of a handful of guests on side and the presence of the media, the auditorium was empty due to the restrictions imposed by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) pandemic.

The Daily Caller reported that Fox News anchor Brian Kilmeade also pointed to Wallace, saying that it sometimes “looks like 2 V 1”.

In another Twitter comment, Kilmeade wondered why Biden could “interrupt” while Trump could not. However, he then deleted the tweet.

“Biden seems to interrupt with impunity,” agreed his colleague Ingraham.

Meanwhile, Fox News contributor Andy McCarthy also noted Wallace’s favoritism for Biden, “Chris Wallace jumps in a second time when Biden having trouble with Trump’s questioning.”

Although some of his Fox comrades defended him, Wallace also received a lot of criticism from commentators, experts, and the general public.

“Chris Wallace is the worst moderator in the history of moderators,” said Ryan Fournier, founder of Students for Trump.

“Chris Wallace, over the course of the night, has moved from moderator to debater,” added conservative commentator Ben Shapiro.

Even President Trump himself highlighted—with a humorous tone—the partiality he saw in the moderator to favor his rival.

“Two on one was not surprising, but  fun,” the president said on Twitter. He also posted a meme on the social network about it.

The first debate between Trump and Biden registered a record audience. The other two matches are scheduled for Oct. 15 and Oct. 22 in Miami, and Nashville, Tennessee, respectively. Vice President Mike Pence will meet Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, on Oct. 7 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
