Only a few months ago, top Democrats and their strategists thought that Fox News Channel was a child of the devil and a place no sainted liberal should ever, ever tread. Or at least they made those sounds to appease the MoveOn.org extremist left.
Now, one of Sen. Hillary Rodham-Clinton’s top aides, Howard Wolfson, is “going native” and joining Fox News after declaring that FNC was the fairest in its coverage after NBC, CBS, ABC and CNN all seemed to Wolfson to be “in the tank” for Obama.
“I thought that Fox’s coverage during the primary was comprehensive and fair and evenhanded,” Wolfson told the New York Times on Monday. “It’s a huge audience, and it is important to have a strong, progressive voice on the network.”
Wolfson joins Karl Rove, President George W. Bush’s top campaign strategist for two terms in the White House, on FNC. While it’s not clear yet how the news network plans to utilize the services of Rove and Wolfson, it’s a sure bet they won’t be paid merely to hawk Phentermine.
