|Moments before airtime, the computer at the Fox News Channel’s Washington bureau crashes, much to the consternation of frazzled network staffers. Host Chris Wallace, a seasoned journalist, remains poised despite the technical glitch, improvising for several seconds when a video fails to cue. |
It’s a recent Sunday morning, and Wallace arrives at the bureau at the ungodly hour of 4:15 a.m. to speak with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice by satellite from Jerusalem about the situation in Iraq. This isn’t his usual routine, but it’s one he’ll gladly follow to chase down the important story of the day.
