Fox News: Influence Peddling?

Trump’s musing over his attending Fox/Google sponsored debate triggers an infantile response from Fox News infuriating the lead GOP Candidate. The mistake is to view Trumps response as a show of weakness, fear, or even childish; this would be wrong.

A key rule in strength-negotiating is this: your greatest strength rests in your ability to walk away from a deal that doesn’t support itself. The problem for Trump is that Fox and the rest of the Media control the narrative and are delighted to give Trump’s opposition a pre-paved high-road upon which to characterize his position in any way they choose – effectively handing Iowa to Cruz.
