I like Fox News and generally have little other than good things to say about them, but they did a terrible job in the first debate.
Fox made it perfectly clear that they hate Donald Trump by hitting him with vicious below the belt question after question, but that wasn’t all there was to it. Fox also spent an inordinate amount of time trying to get the candidates to fight each other instead of the Democrats. Eventually, they succeeded in getting Rand Paul and Chris Christie to scream at each other. Undoubtedly Fox will gleefully replay their spat all day tomorrow. Is that good for Fox’s ratings? Maybe. Is it good for the Republican Party? No way. Is it good for the conservative movement? Absolutely not.
I’ve never seen as much venom aimed at Fox News and Megyn Kelly on social media as I did last night and honestly, they deserved every bit of it and then some. Here is a small, but representative sample of the comments from conservatives about Fox that appeared on social media last night.
Fox gets an “F” for their handling of this debate. 90% of what they’ve done is trying to get people to scream at each other. #GOPDebate

the training of Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace for the GOP debate was brought to you by Candy Crowley AND by the letter “B” for BIAS

So GOP candidates either do debates with liberals who are going to try to make them look bad to help Hillary or with Fox, which is going to try to make them look bad to help ratings. This is part of the reason why Republicans can’t have nice things.
