Warren turns down Fox town hall invite, rips network as 'hate-for-profit racket'
By Avery Anapol and Joe Concha - 05/14/19 11:14 AM EDT

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said Tuesday that she will not participate in a town hall event with Fox News, blasting the network as a "hate-for-profit machine."

"I’ve done 57 media avails and 131 interviews, taking over 1,100 questions from press just since January," the 2020 presidential candidate wrote in a series of tweets. "Fox News is welcome to come to my events just like any other outlet. But a Fox News town hall adds money to the hate-for-profit machine. To which I say: hard pass."

    I’m running a campaign to reach all Americans. I take questions from the press and voters everywhere I go. I’ve already held town halls in 17 states and Puerto Rico—including WV, OH, GA, UT, TN, TX, CO, MS & AL.

She doesn't need the exposure since people who watch, or hear her don't like her.

Meanwhile she continues to show up on "for profit" networks like CNN and MSNBC that "gives a microphone to racists and conspiracists".

Sounds like a politician is attacking the press,  I thought that was a bad thing.
