Warren said Tuesday that she will turn down an offer to appear in a Fox News town hall, slamming the network as a “hate-for-profit machine.”
“I’ve done 57 media avails and 131 interviews, taking over 1,100 questions from press just since January,” she tweeted. “Fox News is welcome to come to my events just like any other outlet. But a Fox News town hall adds money to the hate-for-profit machine. To which I say: hard pass.”
