Fox News has a new liberal whipping boy.
Former OH-10 Congressman Dennis Kucinich has signed on with Fox News in a multi-year deal to become a regular contributor. He debuts tomorrow on The O’Reilly Factor at 8pm. Here’s a quick preview:
In the press release announcing the deal, Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes had this to say:
“I’ve always been impressed with Rep. Kucinich’s fearlessness and thoughtfulness about important issues. His willingness to take a stand from his point of view makes him a valuable voice in our country’s debate.”
Let me translate that for you:
“I’ve always thought Dennis would make a great token liberal on Fox. His willingness to let us use him in this way makes him a valuable addition to our overwhelmingly slanted news coverage.”
Congratulations, Dennis. You’re the new Alan Colmes – which isn’t entirely fair to Alan as he was always more of a moderate. We’re sure Dennis will give the red meat Fox News fans more of a liberal to hate, but we’re going to also guess that he doesn’t get much leash.
Should be interesting to watch…which is precisely the point.
