Jesse Jackson slams CBC/Fox debate.

CREDIT:

“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.”
