Herman Cain Joins Fox News As A Contributor

Source: TPM


DAVID TAINTOR 12:32 PM EST, FRIDAY FEBRUARY 15, 2013

Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has signed on with Fox News as a contributor, the network announced Friday.

In a release, Cain said: Im excited about joining the FOX family as a contributor because it is an opportunity to be one more voice for intelligent thinking in America.

Fox News executive vice president of programming said in the same release, "As a political expert with business savvy, he brings an important voice to the nation's debate."

Former Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) also joined the conservative news network as a contributor this week.

13. Fox: where ex politicians get more face time.

First Sarah Palin, them Dennis Kucinich, Scott Brown, now Herman Cain.

And he really thinks he will contribute intelligent discourse, when he is famous for butchering Uzbekistan, quoting a kids show theme song, and making awkward silence in that editorial board interview?

32. Is there a way to disconnect a channel from the TV


I really need to pull the plug out of my TV-- don't need to see Mr. 999/OOO on FOX news or any channel.

I am African American and CAIN is not ABLE!

CAIN/LIMPBALLS = TOTAL DISASTER for the FOX.


BRING IT ON!!!!!!!

PS/ I don't think they picked him to bring more African Americans to up their declining ratings.

Let the Clown Show begin -- now the Tea Party truly controls
FOX.

4. Fox is where failed GOP political candidates go

to try to hang on to some semblance of relevance, at least until their sell-by date expires and Fox has no further use for them. Exhibit A: Sarah Palin.

17. There is something wrong with this man......

 

When I first heard him on the radio a number of years ago I thought...oh good...they are giving anyone access to the mic.

This guy cannot even pronounce 90% of the words in the English language correctly. He is a shill and disgrace.

Way to go Fox...this will really HURT your ratings going forward.. I love it!!!

26. Diversity

The GOP is going to great lengths to show that they're all-inclusive. Herman Cain and Rubio have zero pull with blacks and latinos. Romney's spanish speaking son was a great instrumental in getting us latinos to vote for Mitt.

34. The Raiders? Really?

I know they haven't done anything in a decade, but get real. They still have 3 Super Bowls, which is 6th behind only the 49ers, Packers, Giants, Steelers, and Cowboys. And Al Davis helped make the NFL as great as it is today. Roger Ailes soiled the meaning of journalism.
If anything, FOX would be more comparable to teams like the Chargers or Seahawks who go to the playoffs, but never have any SBs to show for it.
