Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “MediaBuzz,” reporter John Roberts said not only is Michelle Nunn, the Democratic Party nominee in the race for Georgia’s U.S. Senate seat, refusing to talk with Fox News but she also insisted he not be allowed to moderate the last debate.
Roberts said, “The only problem we’ve run into really is the state of Georgia. For some reason the Nunn campaign doesn’t want to talk to Fox News even though we have been reaching out to them since April. We even went to the campaign headquarters once in person. That’s the way they’ve decided to run their campaign.”
When host Howard Kurtz asked, “Weren’t you supposed to moderate a Georgia debate?” Roberts answered, “I had been asked to be the moderator. The Nunn campaign complained about it, and so I was removed as the moderator. They went from somebody from the local Fox channel. The idea that someone from the Fox News Channel was going to moderate that final debate didn’t not sit well with the Nunn campaign, despite my long track record Howie of having worked for Fox, CNN prior to that and CBS before that fore 14 years, they didn’t like the idea that somebody from Fox would be moderating that debate, so out I went.”
