I have never watched “The O’Reilly Factor,” and I avoid Fox News programs in general. All Fox News does for me is raise my blood pressure, and it’s already too high.
Now comes news that definitely cements my stance on the issue: Former Alaska Governor and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is the newest commentator on “The O’Reilly Factor.” She makes her debut tonight.
Here’s what AP had to say about it: “Fox News Channel says that the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate will ‘sit down with Bill to take on America’s top issues.’”
The multiyear deal takes Palin “back to her broadcast roots,” AP notes, pointing out that Palin majored in journalism with an emphasis on broadcasting at the University of Iowa, and that she worked parttime as a sportscaster for a TV station in Anchorage back in 1988.
At least we know the Fox News Channel isn’t in any danger of raising its cumulative IQ any time soon.
