I found this little exchange odd. I can't remember Chris Wallace arguing with Brit Hume and his all star panel over a topic and see him try to torpedo Brit's opinion. I posted the video on this yesterday. McCain is saying that Romney talked about timetable withdrawals in the Iraq war on ABC News and Romney's saying he didn't.

Hume: ...and I think that for McCain to claim that is dishonest. Not straigh talk.

Wallace: Is that anymore dishonest than Mitt Romney saying that McCain is not na expert on the economy?

Hume: Well, McCain did in fact say that.

Hume: Well, Romney did in fact talk about time tables. (sighs in frustration)

Wallace: So what? I'm just saying that it's a campaign

Hume: Part of our jobs as journalists is to state things with clarity and words matter.

Wallace: I don't think either of them said it with much clarity.

Hume was actually lecturing Wallace on journalistic ethics and then seemed force to back track.
