No Democratic Debates for Fox News?
Mar 8, 2019 at 02:38 PM

The Quick Facts

  • On Wednesday, the Democratic National Committee announced their decision to exclude Fox News Channel from televising any of its candidate debates during the 2019-2020 cycle.
  • The committee based its decision on recent published revelations detailing the Fox News network’s close ties to the Trump administration.
  • In particular, DNC chairman Tom Perez pointed to a story in the New Yorker magazine this week called “The Making of the Fox News White House,” which suggested that the news network had become a propaganda vehicle for Trump.
  • So far, the DNC has scheduled 12 primary debates, beginning in June. It has only awarded rights to the first two— to NBC and CNN.

Food For Thought

Is the DNC right to prevent Fox News from hosting any Democratic primary debates? Why or why not?
