Well it’s also about what clips FOX will use when showing a summery of the debate. They will do what they always do, and show clips completely out of context. It’s alright when comedians do it, but FOX is a real news station. We should expect better. CNN is just as bad with GOP clips, for the record.
If this be true about the clips, isn’t that what they will face in a general election campaign?
Any Democract worthy of the United States Presidency should be saying “I can’t wait to get in there and tear up those right-wing hacks while America is watching.” Someone with Presidential mettle would be doing that.
And besides - how hard could it be? Democrats are the really bright Enlightened-types, and the hacks at FOX are paleolithic knuckledraggers (we hear that here all the time).
Wouldn’t it be a cakewalk to get up there and make short work of the FOX neanderthals?
I understand your disappointment - I am disappointed as well. On this, I agree with Coulter, it turns out: if the Democratic candidates are unwilling to face the challenge of a FOX moderator, how will they act across the table from the Iranian maniac?
I may not ordinarily vote Democrat - but I may have a Democratic president come 2008 - and I deserve to know how they can handle the job. That is true of any candidate.
This is really just common sense as Ann actually knows. If 88 percent of fox viewers supported Bush in the last election (more than any other demographic) then logically there is absolutely ZERO point in having debates on FOx. A canidate is invested in helping his own campaign, the odds are highly against it on a fake news propoganda channel.
In other news the the republican debates will not be held on the Daily Show. [/quote]
I guess we shouldn’t expect the GOP to do anything on CNN, CBS, NBC, or ABC.
Fox News is the biggest cable news channel in the country, by a landslide. Not some “fake” news as you said.
Why wouldn’t the candidates want to get their message out to that many people? A debate is a debate. The Dems only want to talk to their base for some reason. Seriously, how would a debate on Fox News Channel be any different than a debate on CNN or CBS, other than massive ratings?
