DNC Confirms Fox News Will Not Host a 2020 Presidential Primary Debate

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) announced that Fox News will not host any of the 2020 presidential primary debates on Wednesday.

DNC Chair Tom Perez’s cited a recent report by the New Yorker which alleged that FOX News killed a story concerning hush money payments made by President Trump before the 2016 election as the reason why.

“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 out candidates,” Perez said in a statement. “Therefore, FOX News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debate.”

Politico’s Alex Seitz-Wald tweeted Perez’s statement on the matter:

“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,” Fox News’ Washington managing editor Bill Sammon said in a statement in response to the DNC’s decision.
