Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has signed a multi-year deal with FOX News to serve as a contributor across all FOX News platforms, announced Bill Shine, Executive Vice President of Programming.
In making the announcement, Shine said, "Governor Palin has captivated everyone on both sides of the political spectrum and we are excited to add her dynamic voice to the FOX News lineup." As a contributor, Palin will provide political commentary and analysis for FOX News Channel (FNC), FOX Business Network (FBN), FOXNews.com, and FOX News-produced special event political programming for FOX Broadcasting.
In addition, she will host periodic episodes of FNC's "Real American Stories," a series exploring inspirational real-life tales of overcoming adversity throughout the American landscape that will debut in 2010.
Palin added, "I am thrilled to be joining the great talent and management team at FOX News. It's wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced news."

Romney’s book tour starts in March. It would be amusing and a ratings blockbuster if Fox sends Palin to interview Romney.
True! Could also be interesting if they ever had her appear on Huck’s show.
'So Mitt, how's your book selling?'
'I think I saw 10 people waiting in line to buy it'...
Okay, so she would do that.
But seriously, do you see people lining up to by a RINO book?
Multi-year deal? Sounds like national politics will be put on hold...
I betcha there’s an “escape clause” in case of elections. Read da bill!!!!
Check out the Dennis Miller radio interview. That was a fun interview and one of my favorites.
May she draw the watchers as she drew the crowds. Face time, face time, face time, Whoooooo Hoooooo!!!!! She’ll draw more watchers than the State of the Union Address, just you wait and see!! I love the sound of exploding Lib heads in the morning, afternoon and night.
Now don’t go getting all wee-wee’d up, Barack.
The real test is here is, will she be censured like the rest of all the talking heads on FOX. Or will Hemenway’s letter to Robert Murdoch and Goebbels, sorry I meant Gibbs makes any difference in her free speech she use on her My Space???
I just want to see her and listen :o)
I just want to see her and listen :o)
She’s much purtier than Huck.
Can’t wait until the FOX hair and makeup staff get ahold of her! VA-VA-VOOM!
She won’t be censored, period.
Sarah is quite levelheaded and for her political future, whatever it is. She will not be seen or pictured as a kook, no matter how the libs will try to spin her words endlessly.
That I’m sure is one of her strengths, exploding lib heads will be littering NYC and DC, DAILY!
Yep, it’s standard NYT “etiquette” to always refer to women as Ms.
And Gretta too!
Come on now, anyone who would interview Hillary's stance over the "illegal" weapons coming from the U.S. across the border as the major suplier for the Mexican drug cartels and AGREE with her is not an unbaised journalist. Gretta's a dingbat.
If such a thing as a rightwing auxiliary news show existed, she would be free to a much greater extent to get her ideas across; Fox has any number of people who jump right in to contradict any free thinking/expression. I feel very bad that she has demoted herself.
What I like about Sarah Palin is that she thinks outside the box and doesn’t let anyone stifle her. She just goes around them and gets her message out there.
“Nobody puts Baby in a corner!”
“Im predicting that the first show she appears on will enjoy record viewership. Shell knock it out of the ballpark.”
This truly is awesome. With her own PalinTV site, and a high profile on FOX, I’d say Sarah has just declared war on mainstream media.
If that’s the case, she might not run for office in 2012.
For the time being, though, she can be the proverbial “Kingmaker” and help other real conservatives get elected and do her utmost to expose and embarrass the frauds on the left.
The possibilities of this unexpected move are breathtaking.
I think that's a good guess.
Who would have believed Rush Limbaugh being censored, huh???
I am afraid that a lot of Freepers are going to be disappointed!!!
If so, and she mentions anything about B.C. sealed records, etc. then FOX will have no station, period!!!
She stays away from the BC and mentions other records, like school records.
Mentioning education records in passing will not make her a kook in the eyes of anybody. Quite a reasonable request, don't you say? She can also attack 0b0zo on policy, which is much more powerful on TV than Facebook.
we were on the same thread yesterday about the censorship...you seem to have more info since then...anything new?
From another thread:
Sarah Palin at a White House briefing..Someone posted this on C4P, I couldnt stop laughing..
STRATEGY ROOM INSIDE WHITE HOUSE UPON HEARING PALINS JOINING FOXNEWS
Obama: Has this been confirmed?
Axelrod: Yes Sir. FoxNews just confirmed. Its all over the internet now.
Gibbs: Please tell me she wont be subbing for Major Garrett when he is on vacation?
Rahm: Shut up Bob. It will be fine.
Obama: I thought our friends were going to talk about the Halperin book this week?
Axelrod: She just pushed that off the screen.
Rahm: Well....get it back on......NOW!
Michelle: Shut up Rahm. Now what Bam? Do you have Plan B?
Obama: Halperin and Heilemann were going to take us into Thursday. When does she start?
Axelrod: Noone knows for certain. Ill check with Geraldo.
Gibbs: Is he your only contact at Fox?
Axelrod: Well, I sure as hell cant call Hannity now can I?
Rahm: Easy Dave. Calm down.
Axelrod: You of all people telling me to calm down? Shove it Rahm.
Michelle: Easy boys. Be nice. I want to be proud of my country and this isnt helping matters once little bit.
Bill Clinton walks in to join meeting: Barack, can you get me a cup of coffee? Black, no sugar. Thanks.
Usage of "Ms." bugs me because it's a liberal, PC, femi-nazi preference. It's news to me that titles must be "requested." I was taught that it was standard that men are "Mr.," unmarried women are "Miss," and married women are "Mrs."
"Ms." was invented by the femi-nazis in the 1970's, eagerly adopted by the liberal MSM and used by them since then.
Of course, the correct title in this instance is "Governor," as it is standard to refer to a former office holder by the title of their most recent office. Of course, the New York Slimes won't give her that courtesy.
I think if you check out other NYTimes political articles you’ll see their style is to use Mr. or Ms., after a one-time use or reference to the current or past title, for all office holders.
And professional equality for women, such as in pay and opportunity, is to me only fair and decent. They used to be wholly and unequally defined (and limited) by marital status.
“First wave” feminism was pretty basic.
Oh, and of course your doubt and suspicion re: the Times are entirely merited—there is almost no bounds to their snarkiness and unfairness re: Gov. Palin.
I wish you were right, but I'm afraid you will be sadly disappointed. Always "Follow the Money"!!
If you think that it is only the BC issue that is inflammatory to them, you will have to think again. She will - unfortunately - be acting like Ann Coulter and the rest of the FOX talking heads, including the Huckster!!!
That's just what needed, ROTLMSO!!!
I have no idea why he flipped. Maybe Sarah got the gig he wanted....and now he has to court the liberal networks. He DOES have to eat till he announces his run for president of the world.
