Fox News Forced to Cancel Their Pathetic Attempt at a Democratic Debate

This post, written by Chris Bowers, originally appeared Open Left

I had kind of been looking forward to a Fox News debate between Biden, Kucinich and Gravel, but victory is fun too, and now official:
Fox News has canceled a debate of Democratic presidential candidates next month after several candidates dropped out because they said the cable news network would not provide a fair forum, the Associated Press reports. Organizers hope to reschedule the debate.
The top three Democrats seeking the nomination -- Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards -- already indicated they would not participate in the debate, which is being cosponsored by the Congressional Black Caucus.
A statement from the CBC cites scheduling conflicts and does not mention complaints that had been raised about Fox News serving as host.
