The Democratic National Committee announced on Wednesday that Fox News will not host any of its presidential primary debates in the 2019-2020 cycle, citing a recent article in The New Yorker that characterized the outlet as an agent of the White House.
"Recent reporting in the New Yorker on the inappropriate relationship between President Trump, his administration and FOX News has led me to conclude that the network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates," DNC Chairman Tom Perez said in a statement. "Therefore, FOX News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates."
Fox News said it hopes the DNC will reconsider.
"We hope the DNC will reconsider its decision to bar Chris Wallace, Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, all of whom embody the ultimate journalistic integrity and professionalism, from moderating a Democratic presidential debate," Fox News said in a statement.
"They're the best debate team in the business and they offer candidates an important opportunity to make their case to the largest TV news audience in America, which includes many persuadable voters," Fox said.
The DNC has so far announced 12 televised debates, which will begin in June. MSNBC, NBC News and Telemundo will host the first debate, the DNC has said. CNN will host the second debate, in July.
Prominent conservatives, including several Fox News hosts, have urged the DNC to award the channel a debate.
