Fox News hires Dennis Kucinich as a contributor

Fox News has signed former Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich as a regular contributor, the network announced on Wednesday.

The former Ohio congressman, who ran for president unsuccessfully in 2004 & 2008, will make his debut as a paid Fox News contributor on Thursday’s “The O’Reilly Factor.” Kucinich has signed a multi-year deal with the network and will make appearances on both Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network, according to a press release.

“I’ve always been impressed with Rep. Kucinich’s fearlessness and thoughtfulness about important issues,” Fox News chair and CEO Roger Ailes said in a statement. “His willingness to take a stand from his point of view makes him a valuable voice in our country’s debate.”

2. They hired him becausae they believe they can make fun of him.

 

They believe they can let him speak his piece and then ridicule him in front of their FFF's (Fox Faithful Followers)

3. You hit the nail on the head.

They do this with many of their contributors who are democrats i.e. Susan Estrich and Bob Beckel to name two of them. They use them as punching bags and that's what Kucinich will be.

5. Kucinich is brilliant in TV interviews; they won't embarrass him.

I don't know what to think about him taking this job though.
