Come to Think of It . . .

John Edswards says he won't participate in the Nevada debate, in part because the event has Fox News as a partner -- and Edwards alleges the news network has a conservative bias.

Remarkable how that claim is trumpeted far and wide, but relatively little is said about Clinton buddy Rick Kaplan taking over as producer of "CBS Evening News." By Edwards' logic, all the Republicans could justifiably decline to participate in any debate with partners other than Fox News.

Seeing as Edwards' debate will be among his "Liberal" colleagues I don't see what difference it makes if Fox is "Conservative". Which is an assertion I don't believe, Fox is just a "moderate" at best tabloid. It seems funny that the Liberals always try to paint Fox as conservative. Most true conservatives scoff at that notion.
I guess the reality is the Liberals can't even debate each other.

Actually, Edwards was a supporter of legislation that would curtail betting on collegiate sports. This is legislation that Harry Reid (D-Las Vegas) called "anti-Nevada".

In short: Edwards is ducking and using the Fox angle as cover.
