I hope this becomes par for the course for Democrats...stay the hell away from Fox, they mean us NO GOOD!
Black online activists -- led by ColorOfChange.org -- partnered with Robert Greenwald's Fox Attacks to call on the CBC Institute to reject Fox as a partner for their presidential debates. A letter from Color Of Change to activists:
"Fox News is not a `fair and balanced' source of information or political debate, and it has repeatedly proven itself hostile to the interests of Black Americans... Fox on-air personalities and regular guests consistently marginalize Black leaders, culture, and institutions."
The efforts appear to have paid off. A new release from CNN says it "will partner with the Congressional Black Caucus Political Education and Leadership Institute (CBC Institute) to host a presidential debate among Democratic candidates." Read the full statement:
