Nevada ... Feel The Heat
It looks like some of the liberal activism to get Fox removed as the broadcasting channel for the Democratic debates in Nevada is starting to yield some results. John Edwards is now refusing to participate if Fox is the broadcaster. Good for him. Now Obama and Hillary need to boycott as well.

Fox needs Democrats. If Democrats simply boycott the channel, they cannot maintain any cloak of legitimacy as a "news" outlet. This is yet another instance where Democrats have much more power than they are willing to use, often letting ego get in the way of principle. But letting crap like Fox continue with Faux legitimacy is ridiculously stupid.

Update: Digby gives us past Faux commentary after covering Democratic debates. It's spot on. What in the hell are Democrats thinking?
