Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) freaked out at Fox News as a “hate-for-profit racket” after the cable news outlet invited her to participate in a town hall event.
As it has with other Democrats (Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar) running for the 2020 presidential nomination, Fox invited Warren to participate in a prime time town hall. Using her verified Twitter account, Warren proceeded to publicly attack them over the invitation with this lengthy, evidence-free thread.
“I love town halls. I’ve done more than 70 since January, and I’m glad to have a television audience be a part of them. Fox News has invited me to do a town hall, but I’m turning them down—here’s why…”
“Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists—it’s designed to turn us against each other, risking life and death consequences, to provide cover for the corruption that’s rotting our government and hollowing out our middle class”, She wrote
“Hate-for-profit works only if there’s profit, so Fox News balances a mix of bigotry, racism, and outright lies with enough legit journalism to make the claim to advertisers that it’s a reputable news outlet. It’s all about dragging in ad money—big ad money”, She added
“But Fox News is struggling as more and more advertisers pull out of their hate-filled space. A Democratic town hall gives the Fox News sales team a way to tell potential sponsors it’s safe to buy ads on Fox—no harm to their brand or reputation (spoiler: It’s not)”.
Warren offered no evidence to back up her attacks on Fox and refuses to admit she’s terrified she might face some tough questions at Fox that a far-left Mainstream media networks like MSNBC or an even further left CNN would never dare ask.
