When is it OK to re-play news shows? When Sarah Palin is in someway the topic. Over most of November, December and January many of the liberals I know joked with me Fox News has become The Sarah Palin network. Fox News re-played every Sarah Palin interviews 3 to 5 times and each time the rating were well above-average.
Republican vice presidential candidate & Governor Sarah Palin has signed with Fox News as a contributor, reports say.
Palin will join Fox's team to provide regular insight and analysis on the network.
"I am thrilled to be joining the great talent and management team at Fox News," Palin said in a statement. "It's wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balance news."
It's not clear how much Palin's contract with the network will be worth, or for how long it will last. A Fox spokeswoman did not immediately return an e-mail seeking details.
The news 1st reported by The Hill.
The move provides Palin with a platform to sound off on the latest political issues, especially as she stays in the mix of potential 2012 Republican contenders for the White House.
It also marks the latest relationship between Fox and former Republican elected officials, on a network that has had to fight off perceptions of right-wing bias, a perception especially rife in the Obama administration.
