A quick follow up to yesterday’s story about ad rates and tonight’s Trump-less primary debate. Mr. Trump has been tweeting all day about how the rates Fox is getting for tonight’s event are “dropping like a rock:”

Turns out that’s not true. Lie would be another word.

The Wall Street Journal and CNN are both reporting Fox’s rates are staying steady at about $200,000 for 30 seconds.
