On February 6, the Democratic National Convention announced that “Fox News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates.” This means that Fox News will not host any Democratic Presidential debates during the 2020 primaries.
The move may not be all that shocking since Fox News is a conservative outlet that is deeply critical of the Democratic Party, but many are still calling the decision short-sighted. Airing a debate on Fox News allows the DNC to reach viewers that they might not otherwise reach. Regardless of Fox News’s relationship with the party, this seems like a worthwhile tradeoff.
Speaking on the DNC’s decision, the Fox News’s 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 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.”
