Sanders responded to a question on whether he though Fox News was a propaganda

2020 White House hopeful Bernie Sanders slammed news outlet Fox News for pushing propaganda for the Trump administration during an interview with The Huffington Post.  

When asked by Amanda Terkel if he viewed the network as a propaganda outlet, Sanders responded, “In most respects, I think it is.”

“I think they have some people you could describe as real journalists but, obviously, most of that, I think is — most of the station is right-wing propaganda.”

Terkel, not missing an opportunity, then blasted the network for fueling Islamophobia and “climate denial.”

But Sanders had to explain his decision to host a town hall on Fox News during his appearance on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” last Thursday.

“I know who they are and I know the role that they are playing. So, to me, it is important to distinguish Fox News from the many millions of people who watch Fox News,” Sanders stated.

“I think it is important to talk to those people and say, ‘You know what? I know many of you voted for Donald Trump, but he lied to you.'”

The Democratic National Committee announced it wouldn't permit Fox News to host a Democratic primary debate last month.

DNC Chairman Tom Perez claimed Fox News is “not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate.”

Jane Mayer of The New Yorker earlier alleged that Fox News had become a propaganda outlet for Trump, which seemingly influences Perez’s decision.

In March, Neon Nettle reported that the Democratic party and CNN were accused of trying to undermine Sanders after the network disguised the political affiliations of its audience members who hurled unrelenting questions at the senator at the town hall event.

The socialist senator found himself in the deep end with committed policy issues after trying to answer questions from audience members whose political stances, and possibly their ulterior motives were hidden by CNN.

The underhand tactic was spotted by Paste Magazine, who blamed CNN of colluding with the Democratic Party and “stacking” the audience against Sanders by not being clear about who was asking the senator questions.
