2020 Democratic candidates are having to come to terms with the fact that fake news just doesn’t measure up to real journalism.
After Sen. Bernie Sanders topped the current record for town hall viewership, more and more Democrats are lining up to appear on Fox News, despite claiming they would ban the network from Democratic primary debates.
2.55 million viewers tuned in to witness the socialist Democrat, which is the most attention any Democrat has been able to garner thus far.
It looks like Democrats are more than willing to eat their own words to get a slice of the limelight. Candidate Pete Buttigieg is allegedly already in talks with the network to schedule his own town hall.
Rep. Eric Swalwell’s campaign made similar statements saying, “He’s willing to do a Fox town hall, and we expect to start discussions with the network soon regarding a time and place.”
Rep. Tim Ryan’s communications director shared they would be “willing to do a town hall with Fox News.” While the campaign for Julián Castro made similar statements.
Yet even with this new mad dash to cash in on the publicity, DNC Chair Tom Perez has not changed his stance on denying Fox News access to the DNC primaries.
Fox News senior vice president Bill Sammon hopes they’ll come to their senses noting that his network represents “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.”
