They never saw ‘The Donald’ coming!
Since when can one political party dictate what a news organization will cover?
Apparently, we now live in a world where politicians hold sway over so-called “journalists.”
You may not have heard, but the DNC has decided not to allow Fox News to host the Democrats’ presidential primary debates this week.
They “decided.” As in, they call the shots.
Of course, this is precisely what President Donald Trump has been railing against ever since he took office:
It’s obvious that much of the mainstream media is in the leftists’ back pocket, and Democrats just proved their desire to manipulate the American public.
Well, Trump wasn’t going to take this lying down.
The President Tweeted on Wednesday that if Democrats were going to manipulate coverage of the primary debates, he would react in kind:
Democrats just blocked @FoxNews from holding a debate. Good, then I think I’ll do the same thing with the Fake News Networks and the Radical Left Democrats in the General Election debates!

“Democrats just blocked @FoxNews from holding a debate.

Trump loves to fight fire with fire, and he never shies away from telling it like it is.
Fox was a bit more diplomatic in its response, though; here’s how Senior Vice President & Managing Editor Bill Sammon replied:
“We hope the DNC will reconsider its decision to bar Chris Wallace, Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, all of whom embody the ultimate journalistic integrity and professionalism, from moderating a Democratic presidential debate.
They’re the best debate team in the business and they offer candidates an important opportunity to make their case to the largest TV news audience in America, which includes many persuadable voters.”
And as for Bret Baier, he tossed up the following Tweet:
That’s really a shame. When it comes to fairness – our news product speaks for itself. We will continue to cover this 2020 race fairly & will continue to invite Democrats- Republicans & Independents on to talk about key issues & substance with our very large viewing audience https://t.co/z0TdftcVmz

Let’s face it: this is nothing more than Democrats flexing their manipulative muscle.
They should have NO say in which news organization hosts which news event.
But Trump is right: if they want to play these games, the President should be allowed to as well!
SHARE if you condemn the Democrat’s ridiculous power over the MSM!
