DNC Blacklists Fox Dem Debate Coverage

Arguing the network is pro-Trump, Tom Perez ignores the blatant history of pro-Dem MSM bias.

“Democrats demand only Leftmedia propaganda distributors televise their presidential primary debates” — that would be the more accurate headline to the Democratic National Committee’s decision to blacklist Fox News from its slate of primary debates. Citing a recent story written by leftist activist “journalist” Jane Mayer of The New Yorker, DNC Chair Tom Perez announced his decision to preclude Fox News from even televising any of the Democrats’ presidential primary debates. The real problem with Fox is that it doesn’t join the 90% negative coverage President Donald Trump receives from the rest of the mainstream media.

In fact, Trump humorously rejoined, “Democrats just blocked @FoxNews from holding a debate. 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!”

It’s not surprising that the DNC aims to continue promulgating the long-running charade of a non-biased MSM, while seeking to convince Americans that its increasingly extreme leftist ideology is mainstream. In fact, the hypocrisy on display here is quite frankly amazing even for Democrats. Recall back in 2016 when it was discovered that Hillary Clinton’s campaign organized with CNN’s Donna Brazile to feed questions for a town hall debate hosted by the network. Another example is the 2012 debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney in which CNN moderator Candy Crowley infamously injected herself to defend Obama with an erroneous “fact check” on Romney’s claim that Obama had initially denied the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi was terrorism. No bias there? Please.

The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway observes, “One of the reasons Trump was successful and won the presidency was that he declined to play the game where he treated the media as if they weren’t biased and facing massive credibility problems.” She then asks, “Do other Republicans enjoy being treated like second-class citizens? Do they think they must accept it?”

The fact of the matter is the illusion of the MSM being non-biased reporters of truth is no longer believed by the vast majority of the American public. The real question is why so many Republicans still seem to believe they must continue to kowtow to the media when they know the MSM will never give them a fair shake.
