Edwards Won’t Participate In Fox Debate

The AP reports: “Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards won’t participate in a debate co-hosted by FOX News Channel and the Nevada Democratic Party, his campaign said Wednesday, as party officials tried to settle a dustup over their partnership with the cable network.”

More: “Edwards’ campaign said FOX News’ participation was part of the decision to pass on the Aug. 14 debate in Reno, but it also cited scheduling conflicts.” It’s a win for “online activists and bloggers.”

FNC VP David Rhodes responded, calling it “unfortunate that Sen. Edwards has decided to abandon an opportunity to reach the largest mainstream cable news audience in America.”
