Accuracy in Media

So far, only Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar, Kirsten Gillibrand and Pete Buttigieg have participated in town halls hosted by Fox News.

It was Elizabeth Warren who first declined a Fox town hall invite because she thought the network was a “hate-for-profit racket” for Trump. Kamala Harris followed closely behind Warren and said she wouldn’t participate. 

On Sunday, Buttigieg appeared in a Fox News hosted town hall with Chris Wallace. He faced tough questions on abortion and the economy. Buttigieg singled out Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson and criticized Fox News.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to criticize Buttigieg.


Buttigieg took to Twitter Sunday to express why he decided to go on Fox News.

But it is Buttigieg’s party (Chairman Tom Perez) said they will deny all requests from Fox News to host primary debates because the network cannot be relied on to “host a fair and neutral debate.”
