Jesse Jackson slams CBC/Fox debate.

"Jesse Jackson slams CBC/Fox debate."

“Rev. Jesse Jackson today denounced the Congressional Black Caucus Institute’s planned presidential debate partnership with FOX. He called for yesterday’s decision to be reversed and for presidential candidates not to attend a FOX debate.” Jackson said, “Why would presidential candidates, or an organization that is supposed to advocate for Black Americans, ever give a stamp of legitimacy to a network that continually marginalizes Black leaders and the Black community?” Take action HERE.

UPDATE: Markos has a round-up of commentary, and notes: “I’ll be asking the campaigns early next week whether they plan on attending this debate, so this time they won’t be caught off guard by the question.”
