“Do you know what it does?” Wallace pressed Christie.
“Not really,” Christie replied.
Wallace, a former Republican political agent turned liberal cable news pundit, reminded Christie that she shoots herself in her new book at The New York Times, CNN and the network she works for “and not Fox.”
“I don’t attack them as conspiracy theorists,” Christie said of the mainstream media. “I’m talking about prejudices.”
Wallace told Christie that he considers it not “an intellectually honest case against conspiracy theories without taking on Fox News.”
“Well, you can write that in your book,” Christie said, dismissing the host’s line of questions, to which Wallace replied, “I’m not trying to save the Republican Party.”
