Edwards Withdraws From Another Fox-Sponsored Debate

John Edwards continues to step up to the plate and show the kind of leadership we should expect from a presidential candidate by again refusing to participate in any Democratic-primary debate sponsored by the fake journalists at Fox News.

"There's just no reason for Democrats to give Fox a platform to advance the right-wing agenda while pretending to be objective," said Edwards Deputy Campaign Manager Jonathan Prince, in a statement explaining why Edwards will not appear at a September debate also sponsored by the Congressional Black Caucus.

Fox News has spent its entire existence spinning for the GOP and trashing Democrats and there's simply no way that any Democratic candidate should contribute to even the slightest veneer of Fox being a legitimate news organization.

Don Hazen, at AlterNet, has much more on this.
