Greta Van Susteren the media critic today posed the following questions to her followers on Twitter: should CNN be bullied into donating the profits from its GOP debate to veterans’ groups?
(Okay, so that’s not quite how she phrased it, but you get the point)
Never mind the fact that Fox News just had the first debate, with a record 24 million viewers. Of course, they didn’t necessarily set their ad prices so highly (because they didn’t know just how large the audience would be), but I’ll wager a guess they still managed to make some money.
And, will Fox chief Roger Ailes retroactively donate all of the money he made off the debate to veterans groups, if CNN’s Jeff Zucker does the same?
One last side note….
Boy, wouldn’t that make Fox’s day, if Trump boycotted the debate?
All things fair: I did (albeit sarcastically) reach out to Van Susteren on Twitter, but got no reply.
