DNC Has A Moment of Clarity

Tucker Tries Truth in Advertising!

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.

    I got nuthin’. Except that in my state, I have to register as belonging to one “recognized” party or the other, in order to vote in the Primaries. So I guess “No matter who, VOTE BLUE!” is the Order of the Day.

    How in the hell can this be interpreted as anything but the Dems going into a defensive crouch, and before their damn nominee is even identified for heaven’s sake.
    If this bollocks is the kind of strategy the Dems are going to embrace going forward from here, Trump is headed for a second term, sure as eggs.
    Like it or not, and nobody in their right mind does like it, Fox matters, and that’s a huge problem because of how they roll, but it’s not a problem that can be mitigated by trying to edit them out of the picture.
    If the Dems can’t nominate a candidate who can kick Trump’s ass in a debate, anywhere and anytime, we’re screwed, and this stupid dance makes it look as if they’re already afraid that they can’t.

        Yes, in practical political terms, Fox News is influential. Thus it matters.
        If you care to advance a rebuttal with, you know, actual words which form a coherent argument for the idea that they don’t have influence and thus don’t matter, let’s hear it.

        Similarly, if you want to argue that a Dem nominee who is incapable of kicking Trump’s ass in a debate anywhere and anytime is likely to actually beat him in the general, I’m all ears for that one too.

        Otherwise, the tired old bwahaha show ain’t getting there, y’know?
        Some of us can remember, back in mid-summer of 2016, being deluged in comment threads across the internet by that “bwahahaha” bullshit when we suggested that Clinton was a truly terrible and very vulnerable candidate and Trump could actually win this thing.

      It would be an exercise in futility. What thinking person could believe the Democrats could get a fair hearing from the tRump network. Faux Noise® viewers are NOT going to be swayed from their dogmatic positions which have been dictated to them by the likes of Hannity, Dobbs, Waters or Ingraham. Ailes spent decades assembling a propaganda machine populated by apparatchiks posing as journalists and ninnies posing as “opinionators.”

        Exactly – The FuxNews audience is already lost. Doesn’t matter if the Dims debate on their network or not. About time the Dims learned to not feed the trolls.

    Look, Perez says he wanted to try to talk to the voters who voted for Trump and didn’t want to automatically preclude any network but he concluded what I’m sure was already concluded for years, which is that Fox always acts in bad faith and is all in for Trump/GOP. Chris Wallace knows this (not sure why he continues to work there, frankly). Anyway, having Fox host a Democratic debate is obviously ridiculous. They will only ask biased questions designed to make the candidates look bad to conservatives, e.g. “Why do you think Trump is evil?”

    Oh shit, this is embarrassing.
    When I first saw a piece about Perez deep-sixing Fox as a debate venue, I read it as the DNC nixing Fox for any debate at all, including the prez debate(s) between the Dem nominee and, presumably, Trump.

    I coulda swore that’s what it said, but now I see it’s just about the Dem primary debate(s).
    So most of the stuff I wrote in this thread turns out to be, to be kind, bullshit arising from piss poor reading comprehension.
    Apologies all around.

      FYI, the MSM agrees with your original misreading. You could be on CNN right now!

    He works there because he can power his home from the energy derived from his father’s spinning in his grave.
