“Fox News Declines C-SPAN’s Request To Carry Debate”

From Public Eye:

    If you’re interested in catching Fox News Channel’s GOP Presidential Debate tonight, you better make a point of tuning in or TiVo’ing it. Unlike the two earlier debates hosted by MSNBC, you won’t be able to find the debate anyplace else on the TV or radio dial.

    Public Eye has learned that Fox News Channel refused C-SPAN’s request to simulcast the debate on C-SPAN radio, as well as the opportunity to rebroadcast replays on any of the C-SPAN television channels. In the two MSNBC debates thus far, the cable network agreed to give the debates the added exposure through C-SPAN.

And, from C-SPAN:

    C-SPAN will host a live post debate show tonight at 10:30 p.m. following the 2007 South Carolina GOP’s First-In-The-South Republican Party Presidential Candidates Debate on Fox News Channel. The 30 minute program will feature clips from the debate, analysis and viewer calls and reaction. Mike Allen of Politico will join the program to discuss the candidates’ performance in their second pre-primary debate. The program will be simulcast on C-SPAN Radio, heard locally at WCSP-FM 90.1 and available nationally and exclusively on XM Satellite Radio.
