Fox’s Chris Wallace: Did Susan Rice Skip My Show to Avoid ‘Tough Questions?’

Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace was not pleased that National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s first appearance on the Sunday shows since September 2012, when she said that the attack on the American compound in Benghazi was due in part to a spontaneous response to an anti-Islam video, came only on NBC’s Meet the Press, rather than his own show.

“Of course, Fox has led the way in questioning how the adminstration handled Benghazi,” Wallace said. “Perhaps Susan Rice didn’t want to answer the tough questions we would have asked.”

Wallace said his initial desire to have Rice on the show was to quiz her about the situation in Ukraine.

On Meet the Press, Rice told host David Gregory she had no regrets about the initial interview, and said any allegations that she and the administration had intentionally mislead the public were “patently false.”
