The US-Democrats shut out the conservative news channel Fox News of the pre-election debates of their presidential candidate. Party chief Tom Perez based this on Wednesday with the close proximity of the transmitter to US President Donald Trump.
A recently published article of the magazine “New Yorker” had shown an “inappropriate relationship” between Trump, his administration and Fox News, wrote Perez in the short message service Twitter. The transmitter is therefore able to provide a “fair and neutral debate of our candidates unsubscribe”. According to Fox News is not “going to be the media partner” for the pre-election debates of his party.
Just to be clear, Fox News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates.
