Democrats Ban Fox News From 2020 Debates

The chairman of the Democratic National Committee has decided to ban Fox News from hosting any 2020 primary debates. Apparently their antisemitic candidates are afraid of tough questions.

DNC Chair Tom Perez released a statement indicating that he wants the Democratic message to reach as many voters as possible, but also claiming that Fox is “not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate.”

“I believe that a key pathway to victory is to continue to expand our electorate and reach all voters. That is why I have made it a priority to talk to a broad array of potential media partners, including Fox News. Recent reporting in the New Yorker on the inappropriate relationship between President Trump, his administration and Fox News has led me to conclude that the network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates. Therefore, Fox News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates.”

So you’re going to ban the highest rated news channel in an effort to reach voters? Yeah, go with that.

Perez’s decision is based on reporting in the New Yorker that alleges Fox News has become a propaganda outlet for the Trump administration and no longer operates as a news outlet.

Yet, the Democrats will have no problem turning to CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC, because they’re surely not biased, amirite?

Perez would have a valid argument if he cited Hannity and Tucker Carlson. Of course, they are opinion guys, not straight news. Most of Fox’s news lineup – Baier, Wallace, etc – are almost embarrassingly unbiased. Maybe the president should demand all 2020 presidential debates be given to Fox, and if the Dems refuse, he pulls out of the debate.
