Samantha Bee explains why Democratic presidential candidates should think twice before partnering with Fox News
Bee: "When you go on Fox News, no matter how lit your town hall game is that night, you are legitimizing them. ... And if you do go on, they're just going to take you out of context anyway."

From the May 22 edition of TBS' Full Frontal with Samantha Bee:
SAMANTHA BEE (HOST): Look, Democratic candidates, this is obviously a complex issue -- oh wait, I'm sorry, it's not. You do not have to go on Fox News. I mean, OK, yes, there are some benefits to crossing the media aisle to try to reach new voters. While many Fox News viewers identify as Republicans, some Democrats and independents also get their news from it, which is shocking to me because the only time I watch Fox News is when I want to get rage horny before date night with my husband. It's like BDSM for the soul. Look, it's great to talk to as many voters as possible but where you talk to them matters. As [Sen.] Elizabeth Warren put it when she refused to appear on the network, "Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket," which in all fairness would make it the first profitable racket Donald Trump has ever been involved in.
