The Democratic National Committee has barred Fox News from hosting its presidential primary debates, prompting the network to urge the party to reconsider.
“We hope the DNC will reconsider its decision to bar Chris Wallace, Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, all of whom embody the ultimate journalistic integrity and professionalism, from moderating a Democratic presidential debate. They’re the best debate team in the business and they offer candidates an important opportunity to make their case to the largest TV news audience in America, which includes many persuadable voters,” Fox News Senior Vice President Bill Sammon said in a statement.
Earlier in the day, DNC Chairman Tom Perez announced the party would not allow Fox News to host primary debates, claiming they would not be “fair and neutral” forums for the candidates.
“I believe that a key pathway to victory is to continue to expand our electorate and reach all voters,” Perez said in a statement to The Washington Post that cited a critical article in The New Yorker. “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.”
While some Fox News Channel opinion hosts have come under fire for ties to the Trump administration, Wallace, Baier and MacCallum are anchors from the news division who have been praised for their handling of past debates. In 2016, Wallace moderated a presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Reacting to the DNC’s decision, Baier tweeted Wednesday, “That’s really a shame. When it comes to fairness – our news product speaks for itself. We will continue to cover this 2020 race fairly & will continue to invite Democrats- Republicans & Independents on to talk about key issues & substance with our very large viewing audience.”
The DNC announced last month that NBC News will host the first Democratic primary debate of the 2020 election cycle in June. Back in 2016, the Republican National Committee famously pulled out of a planned NBC News Republican primary debate after a similar event on CNBC was criticized for allegedly unfair questions.
The Democratic Party continues to overplay their hand, grossly overestimating their own intelligence while underestimating the intelligence of us Americans who live between the coasts in the Heartland of America.
You would have thought that they would have learned not to do that after their plans for a “Democratic Socialist Paradise” were obliterated on the night of November 8, 2016, when we “forgotten Americans” MADE them remember who we were.
Modern American Liberals, especially the Far Left Democratic Party, view themselves as “The Smartest People in the Room”
You can’t tell them a thing. They already know it all.
Therefore, the preservation of their own fragile egos is the reason that they are blocking Fox News from involvement in their Primary Election Debates.
The Main Stream Media is the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders once said after being badgered by a “news reporter” from ABC that the reporter and her colleagues have a “responsibility to provide accurate information” to the public.
“Responsibility”. Therein lies the rub.
The Democratic Party and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, have been reduced to personal attacks against a sitting president.
They cannot attack Trump on his Economic Policies, which have been very successful and which have led to a record low unemployment rate for Black Americans.
They cannot attack him on his Foreign Policy, especially after the fantastic way he has handled the Iranians and the North Koreans.
So, they decided instead, to write fictional stories and attempt to give them believability and gravitas by claiming to have received the information for their stories from “anonymous sources”.
And, since those stories were being debunked almost as soon as they were posted, most Americans accurately surmised that the MSM’s “anonymous sources” were the voices inside their own over-sized heads.
The failure of the Democrat-controlled MSM brought them to the point where all they have left is to attempt to upstage the president in his own press conference, as CNN’s Jim Acosta tried to.
It did not work out well for him, did it?
The excuse by DNC Chairman and Political Activist Tom Perez for excluding Fox News from the Debates for an “inappropriate relationship” with President Trump is just another example of Liberal Hypocrisy.
Not only that, but just like their predecessors during the days of the Soviet Union’s Politboro, the “Democratic Socialists”, i.e. Marxists, leading the Far Left Democratic Party are neither interested in a “Fair ” Debate nor are they interested in the truth.
They are of the impression that their base, the Low Information Voters, will believe everything that they tell them, as long as they have their Propaganda Arm, the MSM, asking the questions.
And, average Americans, the same ones who made Donald J. Trump our 45th President, will believe their lies, also, without Fox News’ factual reporting getting in the way.
However, just as they did during the months leading up to the night of November 8, 2016, they are greatly underestimating those of us whom their Presidential Candidate at the time named “Deplorables”.
And, as George Santayana said,
Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.
Until He Comes,
