Warren Attacks Fox News as ‘Hate-For-Profit Racket’

Sen. Elizabeth Warren lashed out at Fox News Tuesday, claiming the network is a “hate-for-profit racket.”

Fox News had invited Warren to appear in a candidate town hall, but she turned down the offer, saying on social media, “I won’t do a town hall with Fox News because I won’t invite millions of Democratic primary voters to tune in, inflate ratings, and help sell ads for an outlet that profits from racism and hate…

“Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists,” she continued. It “balances a mix of bigotry, racism, and outright lies with enough legit journalism to make the claim to advertisers that it’s a reputable news outlet.”
