The dilemma for the candidates: Is appearing on Fox a smart political move before Democratic primaries in two largely conservative states - Indiana and North Carolina - or not worth the effort to court what could be a small amount of persuadable Republican voters.
"I understand the need to reach out to different audiences," said Robert Greenwald, the director of "Outfoxed," a 2004 film that described Fox as a Republican mouthpiece. He also produces an online series of "Fox Attacks" videos that chronicle the network's coverage of African Americans, Obama and Clinton. "But this is a decision that will have virtually no gain for Democrats."
MoveOn.org Executive Director Eli Pariser said Wednesday that appearing on Fox helps to "legitimize Fox" as a news source.

“Legitimize Fox as a news source”...I thought the ratings already did that.
Like they really got tough questions. Hillary probably negotiated what could be asked and not before she gave O'Reilly his testicles back.
Joe.G foolishly thinks (D) voters do not watch FNC.
Awwww! Tthe little Leftist Gestapo goons are uppset their blackmailing of Democrat candidates is no longer working so good. Too Bad...So sad...Go harass and attack a Republican at a speaking event like good little Leftie National socialist brownshirts! The waty your gandparents did to Jewish professors in Gemany...*That’ll* make you feel better!
This actually was a good move by both of them. Especially those who would vote for a Repub but wont vote for McCain.
Legitimize Fox as a news source...
Moveon.org and HufPo’s have to smear Fox as it presents a rational alternative to their crazed universe. Zsa Zsa Huffington’s new book asks why does MSM even bother with conservative opinion as we’re wrong..wrong wrong.
Conservatives, in Zsa Zsa’s view, are the same as global warming deniers. The debate is over, the left won. Lions..tigers and bears..oh my!
Heh heh..can’t wait to see the outraged headlines on HufPo when McCainiac wins in November even though he’s a jerk.
