Fox Network has always made it crystal clear it is an extended arm of the Republican Party. As such, any GOP candidate would feel on friendly territory to navigate any interview question, either by providing vague answers or dodging the question altogether without any fear the host would press for answers. Other networks are more subtle in their support for either political Party. For instance, MSNBC is Democrat leaning but its hosts do not serve as the party network.
In essence, candidates for the presidency of the United States would float some ideas promoted by the campaigns and their supporting networks as solutions to the country’s problems but most effort, most resources would be spent to attacking the candidate of the opposing party.
What else can a candidate do when everything is set as a race, a fight, a battle field or a competition?
