On the face of it, there's nothing remarkable about one conservative talk show host (Chris Wallace) inviting another conservative talk show host (Rush Limbaugh) to appear on his show for an interview.

But in the context of Fox's continuing claims that they are in fact a news outlet and that Chris Wallace is in fact their top newsman, it's a pretty damn funny site to behold -- especially given the fact that all Wallace did was lob softball after softball up for Limbaugh to whack out of the park.

Here's a sampling of the questions, but not Limbaugh's gasbag answers. As you'll see, almost all the questions were designed to provoke criticism of President Obama (who Wallace calls Mr. Obama) or the Democratic Party. Among the few on other topics: a few questions about FNC's Glenn Beck.

In short: ObamaSux, DemsSux, BeckRules. Watch:

A few more probing questions like these and Wallace will get himself nominated for this year's Judith Miller awards for journalistic integrity. Indeed, he might just win --  Miller herself is now a Fox correspondent, underscoring these two words: not news.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
