Liz Warren Turns Down Town Hall With Fox News — Calls It ‘A Hate-For-Profit Racket’

Henry Rodgers on May 14, 2019

Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren turned down an offer Tuesday from Fox News to participate in a town hall and called the network “a hate-for-profit racket.”

“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 in a series of tweets.

The 2020 presidential candidate also said: “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.”

Warren’s comments come after Fox News hosted town halls for a few of her opponents, including Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders. New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has a town hall with Fox News on June 2 and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg also has a town hall with Fox News scheduled for May 19.

Sanders’s April Fox News town hall was the highest-rated presidential town hall this cycle, with nearly 2.6 million viewers. The next highest-viewed town hall was California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris’s on CNN.

  • Conspiracy theorizing about conspiracy theorists conspiring to get more ad money. Sounds like the constant ramblings of liberals speaking from experience on what their tactics are and projecting them onto the opposition. "I know how we can deflect suspicion!" liberals say in a conspiratorial tone...

  • They wouldn’t have
    made any money on her. I think most Fox viewers don’t want to tune in to the socialist liberals they have in the town halls and for sure not Pocahontas

  • Not surprised. Just another racket. I think the government should stay out of the loan business and also that most commercial lenders lenders should get out. These young students should not be given the devices to be able to run up such huge debts, knowing that they can simply con others to pay them later. It's a real scam!

  • What's the matter Elizabeth, are you afraid that you might be asked questions that require a truthful answer, or you might not know the answer. You are not defending yourself from anything except fear, and you are running away pretty fast.

  • Who cares, its her loss. I always watch Fox except when they do town halls for Democrats running for President. Will NEVER vote for a Democrat ever but maybe good to see if your on the fence because it solidifies what nutcase socialists they are. Pocahontas doesn’t have a chance and neither do the others. Trump 2020 🇺🇸

  • We don't hate you Pocahontas. We just can't stand your phony, lying, fraudulent guts, that's all! And, you just don't want to be put on the spot in front of national television, to vindicate that you're a phony, lying, fraudulent loon! You're the shinning example of what a fake politician becomes, when you take advantage of the system and profited at other's expense. Didn't you, Pocahontas?
