Yesterday, Fox News announced that Sarah Palin had signed a multi-year deal with them as a contributor.
“Governor Palin has captivated everyone on both sides of the political spectrum, and we are excited to add her dynamic voice to the FOX News lineup,” said Bill Shine, Fox News Executive Vice President for Programming.
He added, “With [Palin’s] hiring, Fox News gets a high-profile figure whose pronouncements on issues such as healthcare reform have helped drive contentious partisan debate — it was her Facebook post that first raised the term ‘death panels.'”
You must be so proud, Fox.
Ms. Palin said of her new gig: “It’s wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced news.”
oh man. I’m in tears. That was just what I needed to brighten my day.
