Democratic National Committee rejects Fox News for primary debates

The Democratic National Committee on Wednesday said it will not allow Fox News to host any of its candidates’ political debates through 2020. DNC Chairman Tom Perez said the same was undertaken in the wake of the revelation of an ’inappropriate relationship between President Trump, his administration and Fox News’. Trump responded saying he may refuse to participate in certain debates.

Pretty hypocritical considering CNN's Donna Brazile was fired for giving Hillary debate question ahead of a presidential debate.

And those ties the DNC has with MSNBC and CNN are oh so appropriate aren’t they...

Well of course, The dems hate Fox because it is the biggest republican outlet. The left only wants what favors them.

I would say CNN, Fox News, MSNBC are all equally terrible and are more propaganda outlets than decent sources for news...that being said, I think Fox News should have as much right to host a primary as anyone else. U.S. electoral politics are a theatre and joke anyway thanks to the corporate media. Put that shit on C-SPAN and then have some random Japanese game show host moderate and you'd have a better coverage than the status quo shit show. That way those who really cared to watch could still watch and the advertisers could all go suck a dick.

the DNC is basically having "a rerun of the 2016 debates" {Reuters} yep, maybe it'll work this time, unlike last time. insanity: doing the same thing repeatedly, yet expecting different results.

Nah, they just want to be able to feed the questions to their nominee of choice like they did last time.

Big surprise coming from the DNC. Its blatantly disingenuous considering the liberal networks have an obvious affinity for leftist politics, no matter how left it is. So what if they don't allow Fox to broadcast it? That won't stop Fox viewers from watching the debates and berating them anyway. This just gives Fox and the right more ammunition... or maybe its another attempt to catch the conservatives "pouncing" again when they start criticizing their candidates. We shall see!

They should have a complete independent journalist moderate the debates.
