It’s rare that the Democrats ever admit to their mistakes.

Oh, they make plenty of them, but actually hearing them go on record about their short fallings, that’s something that doesn’t happen all that much.

Which is why it’s a surprise to hear that the former Democrat Chairman Ed Rendell admit that his part made a BIG mistake by refusing to let FOX News hosts from moderating any of the 2020 debates.

In an interview with the conservative news Network, Rendell told FOX News hosts “I think it was a mistake for the DNC to do what it did.”

The DNC obviously didn’t take into account how it may be perceived that FOXs news hosts would be barred from their events. And Rendell points out that’s a huge oversight when a majority of Americans don’t trust the relationship between liberal Democrats and the media.

Rendell continued.  “I know they were taken off a little bit by the New Yorker article, but as you said: If I was DNC chair, I would, and I think Tom Perez is doing a good job — but if I was DNC chair, Laura, I would say give me Brett Bair, Chris Wallace, and Juan Williams and you can have that Fox debate anywhere, anytime, any number of times. I’d be confident that it’d be fair.”

FOX News Didn’t Take It Well

When the team at FOX News found out they woudn’t be allowed to moderate any of the events they didn’t react well to the news.

Chris Wallace accused said the Democrats have “Fox derangement syndrome,” and many users on Twitter agreed the Democrats were making a major error by keeping out the one news network that could offer a fair and balance take on the debates.

Tom Perez, the current DNC chair, said that it’s FOX’s relationship with Trump that ultimately led to them not choosing to have FOX on any of the debates.

“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,”

“Therefore, Fox News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates.”

Fox’s Senior Vice President Bill Sammon appealed to the DNC asking them to 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.”

“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,” Sammon said.

Should FOX be allowed to host one of the debates?
