Wallace went on to say that the Judiciary Committee Dems were “landing haymakers” which built up Dr. Ford’s credibility:
“This is a disaster for the Republicans” Chris Wallace on FOX just now (when I switched over to see if the conservative channel had a different opinion from the others), says Democrats have been “landing haymakers … building her [Ford’s] credibility.”

The president is reportedly watching the hearing on Fox News so there’s a good chance he heard Wallace’s opinion:
.@PressSec told reporters on Air Force 1 that the president was watching Ford’s testimony on AF1 on a bit of a delay.
All of the TV’s on the plane were tuned to Fox News’ live coverage of the hearing, according to reporters onboard.

Before the hearing started, Wallace shared that his own daughters recently opened up to him about unspecified incidents that happened to them while in high school that he hadn’t known about:
Chris Wallace on Fox says 2 of his daughters, in the wake of Kav allegations, have told him about things in high school they hadn't told him before. "There are teenage girls who don't tell stories to a lot of people, and then it comes up. I don't think we can disregard that"
