Tom Perez, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, released a statement today saying the DNC will not permit Fox News to host any presidential primary debates.

The DNC alleges deep ties between Fox News and the Trump administration. This is of course laughable given the near incestuous relationship the Obama administration had with the mainstream media.

Perez said he was willing to consider allowing the network to host a debate but changed his mind after the story in the New Yorker which claims to have exposed the relationship between Fox and Trump’s inner circle, The Hill reports:

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

Of course what this really means is the Democrats are scared a Fox News moderator might ask one of their preferred candidates a hard question, or one they don’t want answered on live television.

As you might expect leftists applauded:

Are Democrats wrong to exclude Fox News?

Everyone else was not as excited:

Exactly right. Both parties can play this game I suppose of only allowing preferred media access to people and events. Seems sad and counterproductive though.
