Many people are unfamiliar with the conspiracy theories and hate that frequent the low-rated sister network of Fox News. Here are 35 moments you need to see before tonight’s debate.

Fox Business Debate Interrupted By Chants of “We Want Rand!”

Rand Paul boycotted the Fox Business undercard debate and led an online national townhall instead.

Written by Robby Soave for Reason:

Last night’s Republican presidential debate was very briefly derailed by hecklers in the audience who shouted, “we want Rand!” during an exchange between the candidates and moderators on police issues. The moment was as much an outburst of frustration at the various candidates’ strident anti-libertarianism as it was an appeal for Sen. Rand Paul himself to appear.

The decision made by Fox Business to boot Sen. Rand Paul from the main stage may have been justified given his lagging poll numbers, but it was an unmitigated disaster for the integrity of the debate. Paul’s absence from the stage deprived the spectacle of any semblance of sanity.

While many libertarians—including many of my colleagues at Reason—have dinged Paul for seeming at times insufficiently committed to the cause and too eager to make in-roads with big government conservatives, his faults appear incredibly small when set against the horrors of a Paul-less GOP slate.

There was no candidate to represent the significant number of war-weary libertarians, Independents, conservatives, and young people. Everyone from Marco Rubio to Jeb Bush promised to bolster the Army and Navy, defend U.S. military interests abroad, reverse President Obama’s reckless “retreat” from world affairs, and stir up new conflicts with Syria, Russian, Iran, and China. Nation-building was denounced, but endless nation-building would be the obvious and inevitable outcome of the foreign policies set forth by the entire GOP field minus Paul. …

Where was Paul during all of this? He skipped the undercard debate, and instead livestreamed short videos in which he answered questions on Twitter. The move seems to have paid off for him: he picked up more followers than any other candidate except for Trump, according to Twitter.

That’s good for him, but all libertarians should pray he can fight his way back onto the main stage. Absent Paul’s influence, the GOP slate is universally hostile to immigrants, more interventionist than ever before, pro-cop, and even skeptical of free trade. In truth, It’s really no more libertarian than the Democratic slate.

Walgreens decision not to engage in the controversial, and potentially illegal tax avoidance scheme of corporate inversion was met with much praise by consumer watchdog groups across this country. This, of course, brought out the unpatriotic crowd who sees tax schemes as some form of sacred duty instead of a way to cheat the system.

Dish Network Caves, Reinstates Fox News At Higher Price To Be Absorbed By Customers

After weeks of relentless bullying and whining from the conservative propaganda machine, Fox News has been reinstated by Dish Network. And Dish customers are going to pay the price.

Rather than stick to their guns and continue standing against Fox News, Dish Network reached a deal in the same week Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly accused the satellite provider of censorship.

Trying to Dodge a Bullet

Things are not looking up for embattled Dodgers owner Frank McCourt.

After two years of intense legal battle with his estranged wife Jamie, the battle for control of the Los Angeles Dodgers rages on. On Monday, Bud Selig and Major League Baseball rejected a long-term FOX media deal that would have allowed Mr. McCourt to make payroll on June 30th.

If Mr. McCourt does not make payroll, he could face two lengthy and expensive litigation cases — one against his wife and another against the MLB Commissioner. Mr. Selig, who already runs the Dodgers day-to-day operations, would be forced to seize control of the team, stadium and other assets.

This morning on Varney & Co., former Mets Manager Steve Phillipssaid that it would be extremely difficult for Mr. McCourt to keep control of management and remain the sole owner of the team.

“On June 30th, when [Dodgers Management doesn’t] meet payroll, [the MLB] will pay the salaries for the players, they will take it over and likely force Frank McCourt to sell the team,” he said, saying that the question really is whether or not McCourt is going to try and sue the MLB despite having signed a clause that prohibits him doing so.

According to Forbes, the Dodgers are valued at $722 million, making them the fourth most valuable franchise in baseball. Mr. McCourt bought the team from News Corporation, the owner of FOX Sports and the FOX Business Channel, in 2004 for $430 million. Since then, the organization has accumulated more than $433 million in debt and is on the verge of insolvency.

Stuart Varney and Chris Cotter questioned why the MLB did not allow the $3 billion FOX TV deal to go through, which would have allowed McCourt to make payroll and keep control of the team. Phillips believes that “Bud Selig does not trust Frank McCourt. He looks at the situation that the Dodgers are in right now and realizes that Frank and Jamie McCourt have taken out over $100 million for personal interests.”

Mr. McCourt’s use of funds that should have been used to pay the players raises the question of where the TV money will go. Will it be used to continue to fund the two-year divorce lawsuit or actually fund the team allowing them to make payroll?

Despite being the current owner of the Dodgers, McCourt cannot act in his own interests for a number of reasons. Phillips explains that the Dodgers “have to meet certain financial constrictions that Major League Baseball has in place. Bud Selig is looking at the fact that one of the preeminent franchises in baseball cannot meet payroll right now and he has no belief that the money coming in will go to the team.”

With the deadline less than a week away, Mr. McCourt and Dodgers management still have a few days to find some sort of solution. Phillips deems it unlikely, however, that a solution will be found and says that “he is going to go down fighting, but he is not going to come out prevailing.”
