Update: Tom Perez announced that, after the New Yorker article, the DNC has ended talks about Fox hosting one of the Dem primary debates

New York (CNN Business)The Democrats will not be debating on Fox News this year.

The Democratic National Committee said Wednesday that "Fox News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates."
The organization cited recent reporting in The New Yorker about the mutually beneficial relationship between Fox and the Trump administration. DNC chair Tom Perez called it an "inappropriate relationship."
The DNC has been in talks with many networks, including CNN and Fox, about holding primary season debates.
The first debate will take place this June on NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo. The second debate will take place in July on CNN. Television partners for the remaining debates have yet to be announced.
