It seems incredible to me that this even had to be debated let alone announced:
“The Democratic National Committee (DNC) will not allow Fox News to televise any of its primary debates, with chairman Tom Perez citing a recent article in The New Yorker which details the ties between the channel and the Trump administration.”
So what happened? Tell us Tom! (emphasis mine)
“I believe that a key pathway to victory is to continue to expand our electorate and reach all voters,” Perez said in a statement first reported by The Washington Post. “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.”
Honest to Dawg, you didn’t know that before The New Yorker reported it?
Look, good for you for finally arriving at the station, but we’ve been here for well over a decade, Tom.
Let us know if we can clear up anything else for you.
