The FoxNews / Facebook spectacle

Foxnews Republican debate commentatorsWhy did the three moderators of Thursday night’s presentation by FoxNews and Facebook of the first 2016 Republican debate (if you can call it that) go for Donald Trump’s throat?

Facebook

My guess is that, like most Silicon Valley magnates, Mark Zuckerberg (founder and chairman of Facebook) views a Donald Trump presidency as a threat to Facebook’s cozy deal for H-1B visas. He, together with Bill Gates, Sergei Brin, Larry Page, et al, wishes to continue to drive down the wages of tech workers. Not only is Donald Trump Hillary Clinton’s worst nightmare, he’s the worst nightmare for Zuckerman, Gates, et al.

(Discussion of the H1-B visa scam)

Trump has pledged to bring jobs back to America, for Americans.

A pox on both your houses

It’s easy to understand why Republicans favor legal (and illegal) immigration and work visas: they like cheap labor. (Democrats favor illegal immigration because they like their votes.)

FoxNews

I’m not sure which dog Rupert Murdoch and son (owners of FoxNews) have in this fight. I guess it may be because they receive major advertising income through Karl Rove’s traditional Republican buddies. The Murdochs see Trump as a threat to Fox’s juicy revenue stream.

It was clear that Fox’s Megyn Kelly, Chris Matthews, and Bret Baier were following marching orders to trash Mr. Trump. (It’s ironic that he alone was the magnet that attracted 24 million viewers.)

I thought that Mr. Trump handily dodged their bullets and returned fire just fine. Good for him. Americans need jobs.
