Fox bashing Fox?

Chris Wallace criticizes his own network for belaboring Obama's "typical white person" remark:

Hot Air's Ed Morrisey agrees:
Obama’s comment was newsworthy, and deserves significant airplay. Making it the focus of a two-hour block of time? I’d say few news stories outside of terrorist attacks deserve that kind of wall-to-wall coverage.
In general, I'd say Fox News themes its coverage to the New York Post in much the way the other networks take their cues from the New York Times. So if the Post gives a national story front-page coverage and an inside two-page spread, you can bet that Fox News will also give it big treatment.

On the other hand, maybe the producer of "Fox & Friends" just figured the viewers wanted lots of Obama-related news.
