MSNBC’s Nicolle WallaceEx-Gov. of New Jersey grilled Chris ChristieOn Tuesday, (R), for his book on liars/conspiracy theorists. He failed to pursue one of the most important players in the field.

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

Christie appeared as MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” to promote 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 does.

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

Christie argued that he didn’t attack them as truth deniers but cast them as biased.

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

Christie maintained that Wallace had merged two sections of his book, and that Christie delved into it in the third section.

“I don’t think it’s an intellectually honest case to make about conspiracy theories without taking on Fox News,” Wallace said.

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

“I’m not trying to rescue the Republican Party,” Wallace shot back.

Carlson is a cable news anchor whose show is the most watched. He spends hours on air spreading misinformation about various subjects and starting culture wars.

Fox News wonA defamation lawsuitThat was brought against Carlson by successfully arguing, according to a judge, “that given Mr. Carlson’s reputation, any reasonable viewer ‘arrive[s] with an appropriate amount of 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 forward.
