Fox News literally killed a blockbuster story because its owner wanted Trump to win. That it uses some real reporters as a front for its incredibly destructive propaganda operation is completely irrelevant to whether it should be treated as a news organization (it shouldn't)
And Fox's propaganda has real material effects -- it's a critical part of the infrastructure that allows this GOP to be competitive although most of its policy goals are extremely unpopular. Democrats should not legitimize it, period. vox.com/2019/3/4/18249…
"But Chris Wallace" if decides to leave Fox join an actual news organization, Democrats should consider him as a debate moderator again
Here's a hint: if you are willing to do for free what David Pecker is at least respectable enough to demand compensation for, you're not a news organization
