The tone of the Edwards Campaign's response to Fox's continued attacks has just been picture perfect. Because the man is obviously nuts for being the first to decide not to join in the now-slain Nevada Fox debate after they invited Ann Coulter on womanly-hips Hannity right after she called him a "faggot."

Yeah, you'll want to go running to that network immediately:

Enough is enough. It's time to send a clear message to Fox News and their allies that their right-wing talking points and temper tantrums won't go unchallenged anymore - when it comes to what Democrats should do in the Democratic primary, we'll decide - no matter what they report:

Fox News has already proven they have no intention of providing "fair and balanced" coverage of any Democrat in this election.

In recent weeks they have run blatant lies about Senator Obama's background. And Fox was only too happy to give Ann Coulter a platform to spew more hate a few days after her bigoted attack on Senator Edwards and the gay community.

Now it's time for Democrats to stand together and send a clear message to Roger Ailes, Fox News and all the rest of them: bias isn't balance, but turning tables is fair.

The truth is, Fox News can "report" whatever they want. And when it works for us, we'll deal with them on our terms. But this campaign is about responsibility and accountability, and we need to send the message to Fox that if they want to be the corporate mouthpiece of the Republican Party more than they want to be an impartial news outlet, they shouldn't expect Democrats to play along.
Very good stuff. I'd say the blogger brouhaha is officially in their rearview mirror.

I'm glad Edwards is fighting back. The other candidates should start looking to him for their examples on how to deal with Fox 'News' and the right wing noise machine. The responses he has given, his wife has given, and his campaign has given have all been polite, eloquent, and to the point.

He has definitely learned from the mistakes and weaknesses of the Kerry campaign and Kerry himself who is quite intelligent but his longwindedness does not lend itself well to a campaign.

Now I only hope that Edwards keeps this up and does not falter.
