Fox News Announces Their Candidate Debate Lineup – Still Eight On Primary Stage…

update-1UPDATE:  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

fox debate top tier 1-26-16

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

fox debate low tier 1-26-16

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.

    I heard Carson is skipping the debate in solidarity. I still think Trump should hold a values voter summit on a competing network like MSNBC and invite Carson, Santorum, Huckabee, Fiorina and Gilmore to participate. For one thing, it would be seen as being charitable toward people he usually calls “losers”.

    But these are also the most pro-life candidates who have been held back by the RNC. This is the first Iowa debate three days before the caucus. It is such a disservice to evangelical voters! Hold it in Iowa, televise it and raise money for the vets!

      Wait… where did you hear that? I mentioned earlier that I would love that, but I had no idea it would actually happen.

      Lewandowski has said he received a number of calls from the other candidates about joining Trump for his appearance before the veterans group.

    Just received his from the Trump campaign.

    With just 5 short days before the Iowa Caucus, Mr. Trump will be holding a special event tomorrow night to benefit Veteran Organizations at Drake University – Sheslow Auditorium and we want you to be there! The address of the venue is 2507 Carpenter Avenue, Des Moines, IA 50311. The doors will open at 5:00 p.m. and the event will begin at 7:00 p.m.

      Speculation, mine.

      Doesn’t do Fox debate.

      Cruz attacks that Trump is afraid of answering questions from Iowa voters. [Even though the questions all come from Fox reporters.]

      Trump’s event is a surprise Townhall type question and answer with actual Iowa voters and answers done live and televised. Money raised for Vets by event.

    Does the above mean Trump will still go to the Fox Debate?


  5. Neil Freymiller says:

    Can’t say Fox is fair & balanced!! What did Carson answer tonight? Two maybe three only? Seems Fox has an agenda too. I know, Fox doesn’t care what he has to say. Of all the candidates, Carson is the most honest. What a “sham” it is to watch “the most trusted name in news. Don’t ever pat yourselves on the back again. Trump was right!! He had better things to do. Lousy moderators tonight.
