According to Paul Farhi of The Washington Post, “The Democrat National Committee (DNC) has decided to exclude Fox News Channel from televising any of its candidate debates during the 2019-2020 cycle …”
Is this even legal? Isn’t this a violation of the freedom of the press? It surely is at least un-American.
You can’t say the democrats aren’t consistent.
“In a statement Wednesday, DNC Chairman Tom Perez cited a story in the New Yorker magazine this week that detailed how Fox has promoted President Trump’s agenda. The article, titled ‘The Making of the Fox News White House,’ suggested that the news network had become a ‘propaganda’ vehicle for Trump.”
(Please see my other blog today on this very topic.)
“I believe that a key pathway to victory is to continue to expand our electorate and reach all voters,” said Perez in his statement to The Washington Post.
Soooo you “expand” your electorate “and reach all voters” by excluding certain news coverage? You “expand” the reach of your party by excluding the most watched cable news channel on TV? Is this what they call liberal common sense? It sounds like you’re talking out of both sides of your mouth. You’re a democrat alright!
‘“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,’ Perez added.”
Oh, you mean they won’t be fair and neutral and allow the DNC to provide debate questions to your candidate of choice before the debate, like what happened last time at a CNN debate?
We are all also painfully aware of how “fair and neutral” the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is towards President Trump and the virtually 100% negative reporting around the clock.
But that’s okay?
It sure is okay…, in the whacky world of irrational and hypocritical democrats.
“Hours later, Trump responded to the decision by suggesting he might seek to retaliate.”
“Democrats just blocked @FoxNews from holding a debate,” he said in a tweet Wednesday night. “Good, then I think I’ll do the same thing with the Fake News Networks and the Radical Left Democrats in the General Election debates!”
Nice retaliatory strike Mr. President! The DNC obviously didn’t consider what the repercussions of their “stupidness” would be. That’s what happens when all of these idiots get together in a room and bounce dumb ideas off of each other.
“Numerous networks, including Fox, have submitted proposals to the DNC to televise one of the 12 scheduled debates, which will start in June.”
12 debates?! And that’s only amongst the democrats! By the time we get to the twelfth debate there won’t be anything left that the democrats and their socialist government can give away “free” that the democrat candidates will be able to promote.
“So far, the organization has only awarded rights to the first two, to NBC (along with sister networks MSNBC and Telemundo) and to CNN.”
Well, I suppose the DNC does have to be careful to consider the tens of millions of illegal immigrant voters who can’t speak English.
I’m sorry…, I’m bad…, I know it…, but I just couldn’t help myself.
“In a statement, Fox News Senior Vice President Bill Sammon said: ‘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 Democrat 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.’”
We shouldn’t be surprised by these turn of events. The DNC is just the logical extension of the liberal fascists we see all of the time attempting to silence conservative voices on college campuses around our country and at other public events and public protests.
We are well aware of their “playbook” by now.
In the Socialist democrat world, the freedom of speech only applies to those who believe like they do. Everyone else must be shouted down, silenced and labeled as racists, misogynists, homophobes and Nazis.
