CBS News in Talks to Hire Former Sen. Jeff Flake

Source: Hollywood Reporter

The moderate former congressman from Arizona was spotted at the network's Manhattan office on Friday.

After retiring from the U.S. Senate last week, Jeff Flake is still looking for his "next thing." It might just be at CBS News, which has engaged in talks with the Arizona Republican about a role at the network, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Flake, who emerged as one of President Trump's biggest critics and might challenge him for the party nomination in 2020, was spotted at the network's Manhattan headquarters last Friday.

Flake could serve in the standard role for ex-politicians, as an on-air contributor or as something more, according to knowledgable sources.

1. Oh jeez. Sad. CBS is already Fox Lite.

Serving up diversionary pablum to the peeps. They bailed on Scott Pelley as their anchor when he was actually doing journalism. In his anchor place they have installed Glib & Glittery Glor, with his Happy Talk diversionary BS. Lots of subtle right-wing spin. Not worth watching.

4. Jeff needs to match his talents with a job. Maybe a manager of

a small condominium, in a small city, in a rural state. Perhaps Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, Idaho.
