The decision not to debate on Fox is shortsighted and could hurt the party and its candidates.

The pullquote: Ms. Mair is a Republican strategist.”

That’s the byline bio. That the author of this piece is someone who makes their nut by nutting all over the face of the American people should equate to — in the immortal words of James Howlett — ‘Nuff Said’.

But just in case there’s any lingering wishy-washy liberal-ass confusion, let’s break down why this is such an inspid waste of web:

As far as providing a truthful accounting of national events, Fox News is a known bad actor. They are at this point no less than a state propaganda wing of the Trump Administration.

The argument proposed in the article is that by refusing to go on Fox, Democrats are missing out on potential voters. First off, those voters are allowed to watch the debate on a network other than Fox.
