Well, sure, if the only media outlet options were Fox News or TYT, this might be a viable argument for going on Fox. Fox does not have, fortunately, a monopoly on TV news, so there's no reason to act like they bring anything to the table in terms of a Democratic candidate getting exposure with Democratic voters.
I get the principled stand piece but I don’t think it does anything for her and I think a widely viewed fox interview would have people on the left see more of her positions which would be popular.
So then why shouldn't she just cut to the chase in trying to reach Democratic voters by going on CNN & MSNBC instead? Why not just go on pretty much any of the major network news shows, whose ratings dwarf any of the Fox shows?
Why would Fox have some kind of special reach to Democratic viewers?
Lastly she can strongly make the case that her policies are in the interest of the average fox viewer (as a partial justification for being on their platform).
What purpose does this serve in trying to reach more Democratic primary voters (who she can equally or better reach via other media outlets)?
