State Department Airhead Marie Harf Joins Fox News
American Thinker ^ | January 25, 2017 | Daniel John Sobieski

Posted on 01/25/2017 4:12:33 AM PST by Kaslin

No, this is not a headline from the Onion, but rather the stark reality of the parallel universe the once hard-edge and hard news Fox News has slowly descended into. Former State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf, who earned her 15 minutes of fame by publicly claiming the best way to defeat ISIS was not to bomb them but to hire them, has signed on to be a Fox News contributor.

Harf will join the network effective immediately, and will make her first appearance on the network Monday at 7 p.m. during Fox News’ “The First Hundred Days” with Martha MacCallum. Harf will also serve as a contributor to Fox Business Network.

Harf, who was most recently a senior communications officer to former Secretary of State John Kerry, has spent the last several years as a communications strategist in the Obama administration.

We are not making this up. Fox News, presumably in the interests of being “fair and balanced,” has hired an Obama administration -- which includes the State Department of Hillary Clinton -- sock puppet who spread the false narrative that ISIS was not a virulent and existential threat, but rather just another community that needed organizing. She pushed the administration line that terrorism was just a reaction to climate change and the lack of jobs.

Not long ago, Harf opined on MSNBC’s “Hardball” that the rise of terrorist groups like ISIS could be prevented by a good jobs program.

Well she’ll be safe from mashers at the network!

Put her on with Tucker Carlson. There wouldn’t be enough left for DNA analysis. :D

If she is the replacement for George Will it might be a zero-sum game. Both are irritating, so we have that going for us.

When are they hiring ValJar to really be fair and balanced. The fake photo by Wallace over the weekend was the final straw for Fox CNNews.

Is this the result of Net Neutrality or just the new Politically correct Fox News.

Give her a show segment called “Casting Couch”.
Doubt she’s smart enough to get the reference.

The only possible benefit of this move by Fox would be if she is replacing one of the many total goofball Dems that are currently employed as pro-Dem commentators. If not then Fox has just added one more airhead to their left-wing stable.

My recommendation (If your equipment supports it): Watch Fox News with a 30 minute buffer or as a recording and just fast forward whenever Juan Williams or one of the other airheads are talking. Listen to just enough to confirm the airheadness and then move in. Works for me.

Perhaps it’s their way of making the left appear ridiculous. Kind of like Colmes when Hannity & Colmes was on.

U. Va. A fine school to be sure.
But Harf and Couric are not their brightest alums.

She’s just a blabbering nothing. No big deal. I saw her yesterday. About as memorable as a particular pattern of steam that emerged when you last opened your dishwasher. An empty vacuous nothing. Hired presumably because of her “pretty face”. I guess Fox execs don’t get out much.
