FOX Loves New Debate Lineup: Biden, Kucinich, and Gravel

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


You’ve probably heard about this FOX News debate that is slowly bleeding participants. You see, it’s a debate for the Democrats, and while some Dems thought it might be a good idea to get their ideas in front of FOX’s largely conservative viewership, others felt it legitimized FOX’s place at the serious-news table. And serious news FOX is not.

So everyone’s been bailing. Edwards, Obama, and Clinton left a while back. Now, Richardson and Dodd have announced they will not participate either. So who’s left? Mike Gravel, Dennis Kucinich, and Joe Biden.

You’re kidding yourself if you don’t think this will be the most entertaining debate of the season. FOX would probably just cancel it if they weren’t certain this circus will make Democrats look completely silly and extremist.
