  • Published on May 23, 2019
  • Elizabeth Warren launched the internet into a fanatical tizzy when she refused to appear on Fox News, which begs the question: why are Democratic candidates going on Fox News at all?

    That awkward moment when Sam makes a BTS reference, mentions RM and blanks out Jimin instead. 😂 Epic fail, Sam.

    What Fox did there to Pete at the end but a cut n paste job should be illegal! Or at least remove the word news from your name if u swing that low!

    Sam bee doesn't realise that in the bubble fox news viewers might actually change their mind. Even if 1% change their minds or at least realise that the democrats aren't the devil like fox news says they are, I see that as an absolute win.

    Whoever is elected president will not just be the president of Democrats, or NY Times subscribers, or NPR listeners. They will be the president of everyone, including FOX viewers. They should make their case to everyone, including those watching FOX. It's a chance to dispel at least some misinformation. Warren and Harris send a message to a large swath of people that they don't matter. That's not how you win elections. Clinton is proof of that. If they don't want to talk on a network that says unkind things about them, they aren't ready for the bigger challenges of the presidency.

    This is shameful partisanship on Sam's part. Bernie went on Fox to speak to ordinary Americans who have been lied to by Trump. People who are hurting and struggling. Bernie reached out to give them an alternative to the divisive hate of the Republicans. He went on Fox and stood up for all of his principles.
    Sam and Elizabeth Warren on the other hand are happy to use the same old partisan hatred that the powerful always use to divide the people and keep them powerless and struggling. Shame on them.

    If Democrats don't go on Fox, fox viewers will never hear facts and truth. I think they NEED to go there. Otherwise all they'll hear is the filtered, fake news version of what they stand for and what they say. Really, ALL Dem candidates need to go on Fox.

    I understand why many people think that reaching out across to Fox viewers is the braver and non-partisan thing to do, but deep-seated fears of a changing racial landscape and the unwillingness to accept such change does blind people to facts, reason, and logic at times. It is a long shot as to whether the hardcore Trump supporters, arguably synonymous with Fox viewers, will be dissuaded from their position. Of course, I can respect the attempt to try to reach out, but to regard appearing on Fox as the only valid, moral and strategic position to take is somewhat difficult for me to do. Boycotting a propaganda machine masquerading as a news organisation can be a moral position to take as well, possibly even principled, since you're willing to sacrifice the opportunity to get the message across to more voters in order to not legitimise questionable "news" sources. If it's not principled to rely on "dirt" from foreign hostile nations to win elections, it's at least principled to refuse a tainted organisation that fans the flames of hate and division in order to win elections.

    Fox actually has great articles and opinion pieces on the internet. They know Trump will never read, so they're not afraid to be bipartisan in the one place he'll never find it- words.

    Though of course it was CNN who tried their damnedest to spin Bernie's voting rights stance to the worst possible framing. That's not a praise for fox, so much as a testament to how minimally the others are a step up.

    Samantha Bee is repellant. She is cheerleading bigotry. Bigot: a person who is intolerant of any ideas other than his or her own, esp on religion, politics, or race.

    Some great stuff here, but the idea that HRC was a candidate that stood a chance of winning a general is insane. She's just all around bad, just as Biden is. Bernie would have won, period. Now, I'm inclined towards Warren, but watching her, I don't know she has what it takes to stand up to Trump in a general. She's a million times smarter, and has brilliant policy and knows existing policy and law better than anyone. But when it gets into what has become a reality show of elections, I'm a bit nervous.

      Does that little hit of indignation feel good? "Those people" are beneath you? There's a contemptible class of people that are beneath being reasoned with. Maybe they should wear signs. Maybe they should have their own drinking fountains separate from the better people.

    This is coming from a woman who publicly called Ivanka Trump a feckless c**t. By comparison, Fox News has been pretty civil. The real hatred is the hatred the political left dishes out towards the political right and the reason why is simply because the political left is failing. The Dems need to get back on their feet and this noise from S. Bee is not the way to do it. Bile thinly disguised as comedy is not a viable strategy.


    Yea.... 9/11 jokes.... sounds like this poor taste pos... many of us had family that died. Your not funny your disgusting. Please die....

    This is how dumb you democrats are... please do your self a favor right now... go and google “ the most watched news in America. Fox just had its most watched year in 22 years. They are by far the most watched news channel in the country. Dont believe a random dude on youtube, look yourself. Go do it... then ask yourself. Why wouldn’t any candidate want to be viewed by the most viewed network on tv??? Maybe its because fox wont pander to them and they’ll be forced to .... wait for it..... answer real policy questions.... wake up. Please


    These trash candidates with zero policies except for fake news promises, They dont go on fox because they will be challenged by actual policy questions. They will be forced to explain things as apposed to just feelings and false promises.

    Elizabeth Warren explained herself in The View -- she's not willing to give Fox executives ANY ad revenue, and will reach Republican voters through different means like face-to-face local town meetings, because it can't possibly be true that Republicans ONLY consume Fox all the time.

    No you’re not legitimizing Fox by going there. You’re making sure the hardcore right wing republicans get the only chance to hear you. I think that’s important. Mayor Pete got a standing ovation on Fox; if that means that he’s gained maybe even 1 voter, or softened the views of 1 very conservative person, it’s worth going on Fox.

    When Mayor Pete went on Fox he brought the context with him, I'd argue that doing so is the most impressive thing a candidate could do!

    Independent and democrats that watch fox news usually follow this Sun Tzu quote: "If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

    One thing I don’t understand about American television is why different channels are influenced by political parties. It’s completely nonsensical. The news should always be unbiased. People need to make their own opinions about things, not be told what to think.

    “Crossing the media aisle to try to reach new voters” /= working with Fox News.
    Who are Fox’s top competitors? I know; it’s a behemoth that effectively dwarfs all other conservative media outlets in viewership. But Warren and Harris need to reframe the narrative. Do a full town hall (or several) on conservative media outlets with high standards and a fairly wide viewership. It show that you firmly reject Fox based on ethical grounds, *not* political views. “To Fox or not to Fox” is not the question for Democratic candidates. Find a third way.

    Wow, I could not disagree with you more Sam. I am a Democrat. I think it's fair to say that ignoring media outlets like FOX that reach people who largely support Trump is half the reason we are in this mess. This is the moment Dems should be trying to get airtime on both sides of the media spectrum. We don't spread the message by only talking to an audience that agrees with everything we say. Town halls like Pete's are instrumental in opening up important political and social dialogue with right wing voters. I love your show and will continue to watch it, but I disagree with this sentiment whole-heartedly.
