DNC Chairman Howard Dean was on Fox News Sunday today with Chris Wallace to discuss the current state of the Democratic race for the nomination. They touched on superdelegates and alleged bias of Fox News.
In a playlist from YouTube in 2 parts:
A short report on it from Top of the Ticket:
Your audience is important to us,” Dean, who hadn’t appeared with Wallace for almost 19 months, said when asked about the sudden spate of Democrats on Fox. “A lot of your audience are working-class Democrats, the kind of people who will vote either way, and we’d like them to vote Democrat.”
Wallace followed up by asking whether Dean had second thoughts about the Democratic boycott of the network.
“No, I think it was the right thing to do, because there are some things in the news department that have really been shockingly biased, and I think that’s wrong,” Dean replied.
But, he added, “we shouldn’t punish the viewers of Fox by staying away.”
When Dean says “shockingly biased,” he means they are not shockingly pro-Democrat. Thus, they appear to be “shockingly biased.” What’s funnier is that Dean admits they need to reach “working-class Democrats” who, apparantly, watch Fox News. I thought it was a bunch of right-wingers watching? Where’d I go wrong?
