Markos Moulitsas, the founder of the liberal Daily Kos blog, on Tuesday claimed Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg isn't "acting like a team player" if he does a town hall on Fox News.
Moulitsas appeared on MSNBC's Meet the Press Daily, where he discussed Sen. Bernie Sanders' (I., Vt.) Fox News town hall on Monday. Host Chuck Todd read President Donald Trump's tweet about the Sanders town hall, prompting Moulitsas to attack Trump and Fox News, saying the news network is Trump's "propoganda arm."
"You talked about earlier in the shows about the hateful campaign, the anti-Muslim campaign against Representative [Ilhan] Omar and Fox News is right in the midst of it, the biggest megaphone promoting that whole nasty, demonization of an entire class of people, so by going on Fox News, basically what Bernie Sanders is saying is that is all okay and his undermined efforts to marginalize Fox to where it belongs, which is off in the margins," Moulitsas said.
Todd followed up by asking Moutlitsas whether he believes it is a "mistake" for Buttigieg to do a town hall on Fox News, prompting him to say he "absolutely think[s] it's a mistake."
"It's not a mistake for him personally, but if he wants to be a team player– he's somebody who's not only surging in the field and has become a real contender, he ran for the Democratic Party chairmanship last time, so he's somebody who presumably wants to be a team player, but he's not acting as one if he's going to go on Fox," Moulitsas said. "Other networks would be happy to host him. There's no reason to go to Fox."
