Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

At Fox's town hall with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the first question went to Joe Basrawi, who asked a question about Sanders' becoming a millionaire as a result of his best-selling book.

On Twitter, Jordan Uhl noted that Basrawi is listed on LinkedIn as a a campus coordinator with far-right campus group Turning Point USA. Uhl also noted that Basrawi's twitter is full of far right rhetoric.

None of this was mentioned by Fox's on screen graphics or the anchors of the town hall, Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum.
