Default DNC Bars Fox News From Hosting 2020 Primary Debates

https://www.npr.org/2019/03/06/70080...rimary-debates

While I understand the worry due to past actions by FoxNews, Ailes is dead and I would like to hear Wallace ask questions. I think all three who would probably host the debate are worthy journalists.

So if they bar FN I would also like them to bar CNN and MSNBC.
There are plenty of other news orgs out there

No secret why the DNC would not like a challenging moderator involved in it's primary circus. I'm surprised if FOX is at all concerned about wasting it's time on them.

So long as they are not barred from covering the events, no loss, no shame, no matter.

I have an issue with it because one of those people might be our next President and some viewers may get good information from their preferred channel. On why they want to hurry go vote trump to keep out a wacko or why they don't give a rats butt about voting cause all the Dems seem good...ya know?

Exactly. The DNC only wants underhand pitches.

Ailes gave Donald trump questions before hand so they have a right to be concerned but as I said Ailes is dead and I think the kids are wanting a more legit news org

I think you are confusing Ailes and Trump with Donna Brazile and Hillary Clinton.

So you're saying you won't be able to see the events because you watch FOX? When did that happen.
,,,yeah, right...
Anyone who wants to see the debates will find them on whatever channel.

Meanwhile FOX can broadcast something relevant.

The choice,,,;
25 or morevultures and loons arguing over a pile of road kill or factual analysis of current events.
A dilemma for sure

During the Democrat Primary debates, FoxNews should show Roadrunner cartoons with Trump's head on the roadrunner and the word "Democrats" over the head of Wile E. Coyote....

The reason why for instance C-Span cant host the debates is because the GOP and Mitch McConnell will say that this is Socialism and a blatant power grab by Democrats... because by informing voters in a non-biased way and then allowing them to vote based on them being properly informed is clearly anti-modern day conservative/republican. They will claim it is biased against their lies and deranged opinions. Educated voters that aren't sociopaths do not vote for the GOP any more. A common trope i hear around by the maga hat morons is that C-SPAN stands for Communist-Socialist Political Action Network.

However, It is worth noting that these debates really aren't part of the US government. The primary debates are private events thrown by their respective parties. And even though there are maybe two decent actual journalists at FOX news, the networks reputation for being a state run news org and sharing questions with trump at general election debates, killing stories that paint tRUmp in an unfavorable light, and even worse than all of that coordinating with a foreign enemy government to spread propaganda to US citizens means that not only should the FOX news brand by boycotted, but the entire company should be coming up under federal investigation if they aren't already for FARA violations.
