Fox News reporter Chris Wallace criticized the recent decision by the DNC to ban the news station from airing its 2020 primary debates, calling the move “shortsighted,” The New York Times reports. The DNC decided to exclude Fox News from coverage following a New Yorker article which alleges an inappropriate relationship between the network and President Trump. “There are a lot of voters that a Democrat is going to need to get elected president who watch Fox News. People in the Rust Belt states, the rural areas that Hillary Clinton lost. They would have been able to see the Democratic candidates make their arguments about why they’re better able to represent their interests,” said Wallace regarding the boycott. Wallace also alluded to what he described as “a visceral antipathy to Fox News” by the left as motivation for the network’s exclusion.
