In a cynical attempt to break out of the middle of the pack in the Democratic presidential primaries, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) turned up the heat on Fox News.

Earlier this month, Sen. Warren attempted to differentiate herself from the 2020 herd by rejecting an invitation for a Fox News town hall, denouncing the network as a “hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracy theorists.”
“Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracy theorists,” she wrote on her website at the time. “I won’t ask Democratic primary voters to tune in to an outlet that profits from racism and hate in order to see our candidates. Hate-for-profit works only if there’s profit, so Fox News balances a mix of bigotry, racism and outright lies with enough legit journalism to make the claim to advertisers that it’s a reputable news outlet. It’s all about dragging in ad money — big ad money.”
While hardcore progressives certainly appreciated the move, others in the Democratic Party believed it showed Warren’s inability to face all of the United States and persuade people whose views differ from her own. As Whoopi Goldberg put it on “The View”: “If you can’t face the Fox audience, you can’t face the U.S. It’s that simple.”
On Thursday, Elizabeth Warren appeared on “The View” to defend her rejection of Fox News — and she doubled-down on her assertions that the network runs a “hate-for-profit scam.”
