Would-Be Dictator Donald Trump Meets Match With Fox News

January 26, 2016

This is a first for Caffeinated Politics.  I stand on the side of Fox News as they spar with would-be dictator Donald Trump.

Lets make it clear again for all to hear and know.  Those who run for office do not get to set the agenda for which journalist, reporters, or as with the case of Fox News which Republican promoters and spin masters, get to ask the questions.  

Donald Trump has no say in who Fox News places in the moderator chair for the presidential debate.  None.  Zero.

For all the words I have said over the past many years on this blog about Fox News I have never said the following.  I am glad how Fox News has handled something; in this case how they have dealt with Trump who threated to not show up for the debate if Megyn Kelly is the one asking the questions.

Fox News may not know what real journalism is but they do know how to phrase what needs saying in a press release.  Everyone can be proud of Fox News stating Trump’s withdrawal is “near unprecedented,” adding that giving into Trump’s demand that Kelly be replaced “violates all journalistic standards.”

Maybe there is hope in the air after all that something good will come out of this presidential season.

    Sure, Donald Trump has a say. . . He said ‘No, thanks’.

    “Everyone can be proud of Fox News” I think the earth stop rotating for a second when I read that. I am so sick of Trump and I will vote Clinton is he is the Republican candidate. What the heck I voted for her husband twice so what is one more bad choice.
