Below is my email to Chris Wallace of Fox News Sunday that was sent August 17, 2014 at 12:45 am Arizona time. One has to wonder about the latest string of appearances of Congressman Trent Franks on FNC being right before his August 26th Primary Election for Arizona’ Congressional District 8 where he is being challenged by Clair Van Steenwyk, who is having issues with the Arizona GOP Chairman Robert Graham. By all appearances Graham is running interference for Franks, you know political payback of sorts.
Anyway it’s my understanding that Chris Wallace will be discussing ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) with Congressman Franks and I wonder if he will use his one liner again “……. but somewhere, on a peanut farm in south Georgia, Jimmy Carter must be breathing an enormous sigh of relief, because he knows now that he will not go down in history as the most inept president we have ever had.” Have to admit it’s about as funny as FNC’s denial that they are not a patsy for the GOP.
I understand that Arizona CD 8 Congressman Trent Franks is scheduled to appear on your Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace program (August 17, 2014) at 8 am Phoenix time to discuss ISIS. It’s interesting that when a search on Fox News web site is done of “trent franks on chris wallace” the first link is a video titled “Does Fox support the GOP?” and nothing on Representative Franks – not even an announcement to appear on your show later this morning.
What Congressman Franks needs to be asked is if he is concerned that his votes in favor of CISPA will be undermined by the Supreme Court 9 to 0 decision on privacy of cellphone searches http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/26/us/supreme-court-cellphones-search-privacy.html?_r=3
Back to searches on FNC: when the search is changed to “trent franks on fox news” the first link is a video titled “Fox News poll: Voters frustrated with; the second video is a video of you with the caption “A Fox News Sunday exclusive! Where the link comes up with “Page Not Found” clearly content has been cleared for the coming Sunday show.
When the search is done with “trent franks” the first link shows four video under the title of “More videos of trent franks” from 2011, 2010, 2013 and 2011 respectfully. The second link is more current from August 3, 2014 http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/politics/2014/08/03/house-turmoil-highlights-that-immigration-seems-to-still-bewilder-republican/. In this article Franks says “I’m just about as conservative, and full-spectrum conservative as it gets, and I was going to go yes” on Thursday, said Arizona GOP Rep. Trent Franks. “So I’m not certain what happened.”
Did this mean Franks was against it before it was pulled by Boehner and for it after it was pulled?
Finally, why Trent Franks on Fox News Sunday that repeats several times on Sunday eight days before a primary election, is Fox News Supporting the GOP agenda? Let’s be fair here Chris
