Richardson Bows out of Fox News Debate in Nevada and Update
Edited on Fri Mar-09-07 05:50 PM by benny05
Breaking on Kos:

"Bill Richardson just called to say that he will not be doing the Fox News debate in Nevada.

Richardson had been the sole Democrat to confirm his appearance at the debate, which is on life support at this point.

Excellent. While Richardson is not my first choice candidate, I applaud him for joining John Edwards not to participate in the Faux debate.

Another breaking item: Nevada Dem Party Drops Debate

From the Politico:

"The Nevada State Democratic Party is pulling out of a controversial presidential debate scheduled for Aug. 14 in Reno and co-hosted by Fox News, according to Democratic insiders.

The debate was being hosted by Fox News Channel and Fox News Radio, the Nevada State Democratic Party and the Western Majority Project.

A Fox spokeswoman didnt immediately return a call for comment.

Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards said Wednesday he would not participate in the debate, citing Fox's conservative ties as a factor. His deputy campaign manager, Jonathan Prince, sent an e-mail to the liberal website DailyKos, which was posted on the site."

3. Bravo, Governor Richardson. It's beginning to look like a real lonesome
landscape out there on the FOX News set.

5. Hi, benny05. I'm glad Gov. Richardson made this call. Just the right kind
of news dump we want to close the week out.

And it will give FOX notice that it can't be calling the shots on the Democrats for 08.

Great news, and now let's have more of the same.

6. I watched the clip from PTV on why they pulled out of the
webcast of the debate. Seems that Fox News would own that debate, and PTV would be able to post clips or archive it. That is wrong. Congratulations to each candidate that recognized the lion, and decided not to put their head in his jaws.

7. It gives him credibility
Edwards is number 1 with me, but this gives Bill Richardson a greater stature in my mind.

8. I agree that it does that
He considered it and decided it was in the best interest of his candidacy to back away.

10. Fox had better hope that a Democrat is not elected in 2008
Because it would be unfortunate for them if they were to lose their White House Press Credentials. Free speech allows Fox to report whatever they want, but there is no constitutional right to a press pass.

22. It was John Edwards that took the lead on this
but it was Barack Obama who started by refusing to appear on Faux following their broadcast of the false story about Obama attending a madrassa.

Edited on Fri Mar-09-07 09:23 PM by benny05
Edwards has said that time and time again.

Obama sits quietly, but that's his choice. I've noticed he tends to see what Clinton and Edwards do/say first.
