Sen. Bernie Sanders has accepted a Fox News invitation for a Democratic debate in California, the Sanders campaign announced on Wednesday.
“Both campaigns have been invited by Fox News to a debate. We have told the network that we would accept the invitation with the understanding that we can reach mutual agreement on the debate moderators, the format and other details,” Jeff Weaver, Sanders’ campaign manager said in a statement.
Fox News has expressed interest in holding a Democratic debate for months and has been publicly lobbying the Democratic National Committee.
I'm sorry there is NO way that the Sanders' campaign does not see this for what it is, a last ditch effort to destroy Hillary Clinton's chances of earning the nomination.
Fox News has been the 24 hour anti-Hillary channel ever since she launched her campaign.
Obviously if they had both Sanders and Clinton on the same debate stage they would work to sabotage her while lobbing softballs at him.
After all Fox News and the Republicans would LOVE it if Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton out for this nomination.
And the fact that it appears the Sanders' campaign is willing to join forces with Fox News to make that happen is quite revealing.
