Chris Wallace: NYT ‘Must Be Breaking Out in Hives’ Having Krauthammer and O’Reilly Top Best Seller List

Fox News’s Chris Wallace announced on Thursday’s Special Report that syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer’s book “Things That Matter” is now at the top of the New York Times Best Seller List just above Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing Jesus.”

This led Wallace to deliciously quip, “The Times must be breaking out in hives having the two of you at the top of their chart” (video follows with transcript and commentary):

CHRIS WALLACE, SUBSTITUTE HOST: Jonah Goldberg of National Review Online, Kirsten Powers from the Daily Beast, and syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer who we now have to point out has just reached number one on the New York Times Best Seller List, knocking off Bill O'Reilly. The Times must be breaking out in hives having the two of you at the top of their chart, not to mention the reaction from Papa Bear O’Reilly.

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Look, he's been extremely gracious in helping the book and promoting the book and launching it. So, he's a classy guy and he showed it in doing this.

WALLACE: Do you think that's going to make him forgive you for knocking him off?

KRAUTHAMMER: Not a chance in hell.

Congratulations from everyone at NewsBusters, Charles and Bill.
