Elizabeth Warren won’t be going on Fox News, taking the opportunity to really bash the f’ out of them when turning them down. “Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists,” she tweeted. “It’s designed to turn us against each other, risking life & death consequences, to provide cover for the corruption that’s rotting our government and hollowing out our middle class.”
Warren is absolutely correct. Fact is, there isn’t a single primary voter on Fox News. It’s a waste of time for a Democratic presidential candidate to spend time on that hate network if their goal is to, you know, win a Democratic presidential primary. Meanwhile, they are giving white supremacist Trump State Media undeserved credibility while getting nothing in return.
Bernie Sanders was the first to do a town hall on Fox, much to the glee of that network. What better way to fend off advertiser boycotts than to say “we can’t be so bad if Democrats pay us a visit!” Amy Klobuchar followed suit. Pete Buttigieg will be going on that homophobic network soon. So will Kirsten Gillibrand, attempting to reboot her campaign by stressing opposition to the Alabama abortion bill, while going on the network cheerleading those laws (and the Supreme Court poised to overturn Roe v Wade).
