Skip to comments.Carville Hired by Fox News (Faux's rapid descent into irrelevancy)
Posted on 02/07/2014 11:16:13 AM PST by NKP_Vet
Fox News Channel says it has hired Democratic strategist James Carville as a contributor.
The channel said Thursday he will offer commentary during appearances on various Fox News Channel programs. Editor's Note: Add Up to $152,046 to Your Social Security Benefits Using Weird Trick
Carville was the lead strategist for Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign, which was documented in the film "The War Room." He served as a senior political adviser during Clinton's presidency.
Carville's TV work includes co-hosting the 2002-05 edition of "Crossfire" on CNN. He and his wife, Republican strategist Mary Matalin, were analysts at CNN until last year's management changeover at the channel.

By the low standards of Democrats, snakehead is actually fairly honest.
I do not watch any TV news any more
Ever notice how liberal networks don’t hire strong conservatives? They’re afraid of us having a voice. We’re not afraid....
Carville’s one voice - he’ll take viewers away from liberal propaganda channels. It might work FOR us...
Time will tell.
Why ever would I tune in to watch this guy?
Fox hit the mother-lode by positioning themselves slightly to the right of all the left-wing broadcasters. It meant they had a monopoly on half the country, while all the others had to divide up the other half between them.
Ever since, though, they’ve been trying to edge their way left. Now they’ve decided to do a cannon-ball into the left side of the pool.
Won’t matter to me. I haven’t watched Fox since Beck left.
Without his liberal friends at CNN to agree with him, Cue-Ball will be a laughing stock.
I think they just want to have people with a variety of views.
I don’t know. I like having Beckel on the Five to hear how the insanity of the libs operates.
I listen to old friends and extended family to figure out just what they think. And one thing they think is that it’s perfectly reasonable, and advisable, to not hear the other side.
WE hear Bill Maher, Leno, Fallon, Behar, and the Hollywoodians as they speak directly.
The other side doesn’t hear In context quotes from anyone they don’t think they’d agree with.
WE, on the other hand, can take it.
Carville will not be presented as a voice of reason, and it’ll be up to his cohosts to point out the flaws in his thinking. Which, by the way, the Five really could do a little better by doing homework and anticipating Beckel’s out of his sleeve false statistics and arguments
Why do they need more bullcrap contributed to their channel?
I though that was the reason for Juan Williams and Chris Wallace.
“snakehead” still has an Agenda and doesn’t deserve a NEWS sinecure.
Guess that Faux News is reaching for CNN’s sky-high ratings, right?
Never mind Alan Colmes.
Too bad they can’t dig up some of the old Nazi propagandist like Goebbels and maybe The Marxist Trotsky. I think FOX is on its way out.
Well Fox has officially lost my viewership now. It was bad enough with Colmes, and then Juan Williams (another sniveling leftista), but with Carville, who I literally can’t stomach looking at....much less listening to, I’m out.
Way to go, Fox! Keep it up and you’ll manage to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, much like the GOP always does.
Is he bringing his old trash can or will they supply one?
I’m outraged! The very last thing a network that bills itself as “fair and balanced” should have is anyone that represents a dissenting opinion. In fact we need to act now to ensure that there are no dissenting opinions across the entire public media. The only way that this nation can work properly is when everyone believes properly and toes the politically correct party line. Dissenters should be rounded up, tarred, feathered, hung, folded, spindled, mutilated and then shot.
Oh wait. That’s what the Left believes. Never mind.
“WE, on the other hand, can take it.”
Sorry, I’ve been taking it for too many years now. When the leftists appear on my screen I hit MUTE! ;-)
James Carville gets on Bill O’Reilly a lot. I immediately change channels. He is so ugly muting isn’t good enough. Moron Juan Williams always gets muted
There are other libs on Fox who are palatable
The media desert is spreading. The internet is the next target for control and destruction.
One of the women at Fox News should come early to the set. She should get a $20 bill and hook it to some thread and put the bill on one side of the studio and stretch the thread to the other side. Then, get a few more ladies and have them wait by the bill. When Carville comes on, pull the $20 bill across the set and have all the ladies screaming and chasing after it. Let him explain that one.
What would the world look like today if George HW Bush hadn’t broken his promise not to raise taxes? Fools like Carville, Bill and Hillary would be little more than asterisks in political history books.
Are we as Conservatives so thin skinned we cannot tolerate a dissenting voice? Carville makes my blood pressure jump through the roof, but at least he will have some counterparts to dispute whatever vile is coming from his mouth. Can we same for the other networks?
I quit watching the news. Last episode 11/7/12
Only democrat on Faux I can stand is Kirsten Powers. Why she remains a democrat I’ll never know. She’s the only one that does not worship the human teleprompter.
Can’t wait till the Kraut gets hold of him!
Chew him up and spit him out!
When was the last time they hired a right wing host? Maybe Palin but it is in a minor role. carville will be a star on the new mslsd.
Well, yeah, but that’s only because you know what they say.
Maybe he’ll get voted off.
bob beckle, juan williams and a thousand female rats will be there to cheer him on.
Aw, man! He’s going to get slime all over everything.
Change is definitely in the wind.
News Corporation Chairman/CEO Rupert Murdoch is 82.
FNC President Roger Ailes is 73.
I agree. I want Fox conservative, but it need not become an intellectual ghetto. I seem to recall hearing that Santita Jackson, Jesse Jackson’s daughter was hired by Fox in April of 2012, for social commentary. I dont know if she’s still on Fox or not, but her once in a while presence has not radically changed that network. Just so long as Fox doesnt get too heavy with radical leftists, we can probably take it. Carville is an engaging speaker, even when I disagree with him. He keeps the viewer’s attention, which is what a producer wants on TV.
Kirsten Powers is OK and so is Bob Beckel. I know many freepers cannot stand Beckel.
Agreed. I am surprized that BHO has not moved faster with the FCC to demand equal time on conservative web-sites. The NSA/PRISM/Google connection is worrisome.
I think Williams voted for the human teleprompter because of the color of his skin. He was originally a Hillary Clinton supporter and had nothing good to say about the Kenyan. But just as fast as the Kenyan won the election, Williams was on Faux News saying he felt like crying when he realized a “black man” had been elected president. Made no difference that a few months before that he was saying that “black man” was incompetent and just a token. I also remember Hillary Clinton supporter Jesse Jackson saying he would like to squeeze the Kenyan’s gonads off. He couldn’t stand the upstart, but now of course kisses his ass till the cows come home.
Carville is a lightweight leftist pundit of the first order except for those in the TV network industry who are fascinated by his freakish persona.
He may have other capabilities, of course (and probably a nice guy and family man), but one of them is not being a coherent TV political analyst....at least of any weighty importance whatsoever.
Then why does he get all these TV gigs considering that he contributes no deep thinking or original thoughts of any earthly use to the viewer? After all, he merely spouts Democrat talking-points in a rapid-fire, barely-intelligible babble of Louisiana socialist swamp-bilge.
Let's face it, his face is his fortune. He owes a lot to it. He's on the tube because he's a cartoon-character, carnival barker, one of the more loquacious endmen in the long-running Democrat minstrel shows of life.
If he wasn't (according to his wife's words) a "serpent-head" with such a...well, such a riveting face, he'd be given the hook and yanked off any network show stage in a New Orleans minute.
It's the sideshow, Mr. Murdoch....and we all know that's why you hired him. You're putting him on like a bearded lady or a sword swallower.
If it was the economy, stupid, he wouldn't be on your payroll.
Shepherd Smith (however she spells it);
Chris “I wanna be like Daddy!” Wallace;
Faux is caving in real-time.
I also loved it when he wore the paper bag over his head.
I think Carville is funny. People here take him too seriously. Mary must see something in the guy.
New show about to debut on FOX - The Progressive 5
Powers or Mara Liasson or maybe Ailes can get Sandra Fluke.
Can’t wait to see its ratings.
Great show for bulemiacs everywhere.
I can take him, Bob B and Juan W in the size doses Fox gives us. Now, if they give him his own show, or set up a lib hour, then I'm gone!
“I know many freepers cannot stand Beckel.”
I’m one of them. The man is never prepared with any facts.
He’s just a lazy commentator.
If he made an effort I might have more respect for him.
I like Carville, especially when O’Reilly has him on because he’s honest enough to realize he’s just cranking the BS pump. BOR will accuse him of just spewing partisan stuff and Carville will deny it with a big grin on his face - he’d make a terrible poker player. I’d much rather watch the Snake deliver the leftist talking points than that Blubber-bundle Bob Beckel, who is just nasty.
No, “irrelevancy” would be doing the same thing the other organizations do: Putting only one side on. I see this griping every time Fox News hires a liberal, and the criticism is just as misplaced, every time.
“Knee-jerk” is the expression, I believe.
Ya know lovely lady, I'd do Pay Per View to watch Rove and Serpent Head in a cage match. Two go in, one comes out.
I don’t think Carville is being hired with a “news” sinecure, but rather, with an “opinion” sinecure. I see nothing wrong with that since he is not there to present hard news facts only opinion, same as Powers, Colmes, Williams and Beckel. Why are FoxNews ratings so high and increasing? Because Ailes, regardless of what the leftist schmucks claim, has not allowed Fox News to be turned into a propaganda outlet for the right or the Republican Party, thus their hard news anchors present “just the facts ma’am” and their opinion shows present opinion from many different viewpoints.
I would not like to see Fox News become propagandized either, we need at least one real news channel, no matter how frustrating it is to listen to Ted O’Baxter at times or to the ultimate low information voter Beckel or the ultimate Obama “hear, speak, see no evil” water carriers like Colmes and Juan Williams. I am more convinced than ever that the last honest liberal is Kirsten Powers. But having to put up with other viewpoints is the price paid for having at least one true News channel.
I would have no problem though if someone would go to the Koch brothers and/or other rich Conservative/Tea Party backers and make the case for them to invest in a Propaganda type channel for Conservative/Tea Party causes and candidates to counter the propaganda of MSNBC, CNN, NBC, NY Times, WaPo, LA Times, ABC, CBS etc...etc.... We should be fighting fire with fire.
I don't really watch TV anymore, so have no direct evidence, but FOX is apparently NOT the Vast Right Wing Conspiratorial Combine that the left wing meme promotes.
It’s a joke?
If its not it’ll fail. Lib talk dhows always fail. Libs deal in emotion. Smears, pop culture and journalism one way info. No questions. No conversation. They cannot deal in facts and truth They flop in that arena Its why obobo can’t do press conferences
Carville's other brother...
FYI M Robinson Obama spent enough time in the Jesse Robinaon Jackson home growing up to be called Sis. A freeper who grew up with the crew said many classmates thought she was just another one of the family
Also. Google Noah JJ s bro who’s doing life for his involvment with the black Muslim street gang that controlled the community O organized
