Marginal Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren – aka Jeep Grand Cherokee – has refused to participate in a town hall event hosted by Fox News, claiming the network is filled with “racism, bigotry, and hatred.”
Democratic Massachusetts Sen. and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren announced she is declining to participate in a Fox News town hall. Her decision comes as House Democrats have been encouraging their party to go on the cable news network.
This is a wonderful decision by Dances With Beer. Fox News routinely conquers the ratings game, and someone who has zero chance of being president does not deserve that kind of publicity.
“Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists — it’s designed to turn us against each other, risking life and death consequences, to provide cover for the corruption that’s rotting our government and hollowing out our middle class,” she wrote in a series of tweets.
Chief Sitting Bulls**tter is simply throwing out the usual Democratic pejoratives. Everyone who does not agree with her is sexist, intolerant, xenophobic, homophobic Islamophobic, racist and bigoted. The act is as tired as her campaign.
“Fox News balances a mix of bigotry, racism, and outright lies with enough legit journalism to make the claim to advertisers that it’s a reputable news outlet. It’s all about dragging in ad money — big ad money,” Warren added. “But Fox News is struggling as more and more advertisers pull out of their hate-filled space. A Democratic town hall gives the Fox News sales team a way to tell potential sponsors it’s safe to buy ads on Fox—no harm to their brand or reputation.”
Imagine the gall of someone who lied about her heritage – as a springboard to a lucrative teaching position – suddenly accusing an entire news network of putting out falsehoods. The hypocrisy doesn’t look well on you, Lizzie.
