In an interview Sunday, Fox News' Chris Wallace took it easy on former Vice President Dick Cheney.

The Fox News host probably wasn't shocked to find out that Cheney ignores the suggestion that he is a war criminal and that he doesn't discourage Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from running against President Barack Obama.

The former vice president's response to "What do you think of Barack Obama as president?" simply wasn't going to surprise anyone.

But probably most predictable was Cheney's answer to Wallace's prompting that the mainstream media is too liberal.

Wallace noted that following Cheney's interview on NBC's The Today Show, the network showed a protester holding a sign saying, "Torture Is a Crime: Investigate Cheney."

"Investigate Cheney," Cheney repeated with a smile.

"I somehow doubt that if Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama were speaking they would have taken the shot and then suddenly a person with a sign would have been putting their picture up," Wallace declared. "Do you think there is a liberal bias in the mainstream media?" Wallace asked.

"I think there probably is," Cheney replied. "But I don't spend time worry being it. I think that those of us right-thinking conservatives find that there are a lot of outlets out there now in the media, on the Internet that give us ample opportunity for our points of view to get across and heard."

"Mr. Vice President, thank you for talking with us and thank you for your service to our nation," Wallace concluded the interview by saying.

"His book is In My Time and I can tell you it is a very good read."
