Clinton agrees to debate on Fox News next week

Clinton’s campaign announced today that she has agreed to a debate on Fox News next week, February 11th. We thought this was resolved last March and Democrats weren’t going to debate on Fox. Jane Hamsher has the background on Clinton’s decision and makes this key point:

Fox is not a news outlet, it’s an openly partisan opinion factory and the Democrats should not be legitimizing them (and allowing them to recruit Democratic viewers to propagandize to) by doing this.

Paul Begala also wrote a scathing rebuke of FOX last March, which John posted. So, again, why would any Democrat agree to a debate on Fox?
