UPDATE: Due to the severity of bias within the Fox agenda, candidate Donald Trump has stated his attendance is still undetermined:
This was the earlier snarky statement by Fox which led to Donald Trump reconsidering:
FOX NEWS: “We learned from a secret back channel that the Ayatollah and Putin both intend to treat Donald Trump unfairly when they meet with him if he becomes president,” Fox News said in the statement, adding this gem: “A nefarious source tells us that Trump has his own secret plan to replace the Cabinet with his Twitter followers to see if he should even go to those meetings.”
Fox News has announced the candidate debate lineup and again there are two tiers. Eight candidates in the 9:00pm “Top Tier” debate, and four candidates in the 7:00pm “Lower Tier” (kiddie table) debate:
Top Tier 9:00pm Thursday
Top Tier Ranking: Donald Trump, Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Marco Rubio, Doctor Ben Carson, Governor Jeb Bush, Governor Chris Christie, Governor John Kasich, Senator Rand Paul.
Low Tier 7:00pm Thursday
Lower Tier Ranking: Carly Fiorina, Governor Mike Huckabee, Senator Rick Santorum and Governor Jim Gilmore.
Gag-a-Maggot… Even the Fox Media release reeks of the bias they carry forth into the debate:
Eight Republican candidates have qualified for the prime-time Fox News/Google debate on Thursday – and once again, Donald Trump has snagged the center-stage slot. (link)
Yeah, because Trump didn’t work his butt off to earn the position center stage, which, by-the-way, doesn’t factually exist because there is no “center” amid the way Fox has aligned the eight person group.
