Having waged a war against a cable news network that was supposed to have been an ally, Hillary Clinton campaign strategist Howard Wolfson is signing up with the enemy. Wolfson has inked a deal with Fox News where, like Karl Rove, he'll serve as a contributor, offering analysis to the right-y network that undoubtedly will work to support John McCain against Barack Obama. Wolfson certainly has ample reasoning to join up with FNC, if only because his days of working "with" MSNBC, which sided early with Team Obama, were hellish. And now that he's signing up with Fox News, he has even more pleasant words for Roger Ailes' network: "I thought that Fox???s coverage during the primary was comprehensive and fair and evenhanded. It???s a huge audience, and it is important to have a strong, progressive voice on the network." It'll also be important for him to have a soapbox to rail against Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews, a favorite Fox News bloodsport. [NYT]
Sunday, I hope you take your spam and die of ass cancer.
That said, I realize to you libs that Fox News is eeeeeeevil, but even you must admit that they were the most fair and balanced (pardon the pun) to Hillary during the primaries.
CNN kept tripping over themselves to prop up Obama and over at MSNBC, you had one anchor with "trickles" running up his leg and the other openly rooting for Obama and calling for Hillary to drop out.
Of course, Hillary did get more votes than Obama, but the fix was in.
