Frank succinctly breaks down why he called Chris Wallace out on his "odd view of balance" saying that the interview was promoted as a chance for the Democrats to talk about their agenda yet began with Wallace nitpicking points of controversy while all but ignoring the positive Democratic agenda the incoming Chairmen were prepared to discuss.
