http://dailycaller.com/

Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren turned down an offer from Fox News to host a town hall for her Tuesday, calling the network “a hate-for-profit racket.”

Warren sent out of a series of tweets, saying she would be turning down the offer. It is “a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists—it’s designed to turn us against each other, risking life and death consequences, to provide cover for the corruption that’s rotting our government and hollowing out our middle class,” she wrote.

The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate also said “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.”

Warren’s comments come after Fox News hosted town halls for a few of her opponents including, Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders. New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has a town hall with Fox News on June 2 and South Bend, Indiana, mayor Pete Buttigieg also has a town hall with Fox News scheduled for May 19.

Sanders’s April Fox News town hall was the highest-rated presidential town hall this cycle, with nearly 2.6 million viewers. The next highest-viewed town hall was California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris’s on CNN.
