Fox News Hires Former Democratic Congressman as Contributor

By Marisa Sarnoff Apr 13th, 2021, 12:53 pm



Former Rep. Harold Ford Jr. (D-TN) has officially joined Fox News as a contributor, the network announced Tuesday.

Ford will provide commentary across all Fox News platforms, including Fox News and Fox Business, in both daytime and primetime programming, according to a Fox News statement.

Ford was a five-term representative for Tennessee, from 1996-2006, where he served on the House Budget Committee and the House Committee on Financial Services. He is now the vice chairman and executive vice president of PNC Bank’s Corporate and Institutional banking business.

“I am excited to join the FOX News Media family and am grateful for the network’s commitment to showcasing a diversity of voices and viewpoints,” Ford said in a statement. “I look forward to sharing my unique perspective directly with the viewers.”

2. Count me totally UNsurprised.

He has been out of office so long he ought to be irrelevant, but he, of course, will provide the anti-Democratic Party message FROM a self-identigied Democrat that all the Fox viewers live for.

7. He comes off as an overly confident slick dude. No doubt he'll sell whatever credibility for cash.

8. Many may be unaware that Ford was fired by Morgan Stanely for "conduct inconsistent with our

values and in violation of our policies.

What were those violations you ask?

He was accused of harassment and intimidation

"HuffPost on Thursday reported that a woman interviewed by Morgan Stanley as part of the investigation alleged that Ford forcibly grabbed her during a professional meeting in Manhattan several years ago. Ford allegedly harassed and intimidated the woman and continued to contact her after the encounter until she wrote an email asking him to stop."

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/business/wp/2017/12/07/former-congressman-harold-ford-jr-fired-by-morgan-stanley-over-inappropriate-behavior-company-says/

Sounds to me that he meets the minimum requirement to work at fox
