2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., speaks during a “community conversation” event at the Kermit Fire & Rescue Headquarters Station, Friday, May 10, 2019, in Kermit, W.Va. (Craig Hudson/Charleston Gazette-Mail via AP)

Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-MA, declined a request from FOX News to do a town hall interview, calling the network in a series of tweets a “hate-for-profit network that gives a megaphone to racists…”

The presidential candidate said that doing the town hall would help legitimize the network and that the network is suffering from companies pulling advertisements.

While some companies have pulled ads, the network still dominates the ratings in primetime viewership. By comparison, CNN’s ratings dropped 26 percent during the month of April. 

Earlier this year, the Democratic National Committee announced it was boycotting FOX News as a primary debate host.

However, not all candidates have followed this boycott. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, has already participated in a town hall.

Sanders’ town hall was the highest rated candidate town hall on any network during this election cycle.

Also Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former Mayor Pete Buttigieg will participate in one in the future. 

FOX News has still not publicly responded to Warren’s statement.
