The Commission on Presidential Debates selected Wallace as moderator of the third presidential debate, held on October 19, 2016, at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
This was the first time the anchor of Fox News had moderated a general election presidential debate. After he was appointed Wallace controversially said, “It’s not my job” to fact-check candidates, but that it was the job of the opposing candidate. After the debate, Jennifer Rubin in The Washington Post said that despite her strong disapproval of other Fox News commentators, “No one could watch the final debate and deny that Chris Wallace is among the best in the business.”
