Mark Levine Blasts FOX News … The Big Fox News Debate ‘Wasn’t a Debate, It was a REALITY SHOW’ … They Owe America an Apology
Conservative radio talk show host Mark Levine blasts FOX News debate … its wasn’t a debate, it was a reality show.
Actually, I could not agree more. There was an agenda going on during this debate; however, it was not to get to the facts, policies and beliefs of the candidates, it was a FOX News rating agenda. It was not supposed to be about the 24 million people who watched the debate so that FOX could pat themselves on the back. This was supposed to be about getting to know the candidates and weeding some out so that there are not 17 Republicans running for the GOP nominee.
He emphasized that he’s not ‘trashing’ Fox News, despite what other headlines may say. He’s proffering his criticism as a serious person and he believes that debate questions should be pertinent to the American people.
Levin said the first hour was disastrous and pointed out that the second question was completely unfair and proceeded to debunk part of it. He also said question the abortion questions, saying that these Republican candidates were getting hammered because they are pro-life.
“When a moderator has an agenda they should at least try and conceal it somewhat,” Levin noted.
And this has nothing to do with the Megyn Kelly/Donald Trump dust up, because the entire debate was like that. WHAT THE HELL FOX? If I wanted to watch snarky moderators ask GOP candidates questions with a tone of Media Matters opposition research I would have tuned into ABC, CNN, CBS, NBC or MSNBC for that matter. I am not a Donald Trump supporter or defender, but it wasn’t just Trump that Megyn Kelly and crew aimed their snark at. To all Republicans, conservatives and Independents, review the debate that aired at 5 pm and then take a look at the one from 8 pm, they are no way the same. One was professional and informative, the one hosted by Megyn Kelly et all was nothing for than attempt to spur on a food fight.
An added note … Shame on you Erick Erickson, a paid FOX News contributor.
