Donna Brazile Takes a Job with Fox News


Three years ago CNN correspondent Donna Brazile was forced to resign after she was served up as the October surprise for the 2016 U.S. presidential election when Wikileaks released emails showing she fed questions to Hillary Clinton ahead of a debate and a town hall meeting [click here if you missed that].

Now Brazile has taken a job with Fox news...

In a message posted on the Fox News site Donna writes,
I am excited by the opportunity to share my perspective and views with the Fox News audience and to help shape the dialogue at this important juncture in our history. More importantly, I’m eager to learn from the experience.
The 2020 presidential election is a consequential moment in American democracy. Everything we believe in as Americans will be examined and, in essence, ratified by our votes. But it concerns me, as it does the majority of good Americans, that our national debate has become hostile and disrespectful. We no longer simply agree to disagree. Too often we demonize the intentions of others. Our lines of communication are frayed, if not broken.
In order for us to best decide as a people how to better protect and preserve our way of life, we need to first be able to hear what others are saying without the filter of bias and contempt. Not until we once again become practiced at treating those of differing views with civility and respect can we begin to join together to solve the myriad of problems our country must overcome.
I fully admit that in my previous lives as a campaign staffer, presidential campaign manager and Democrat Party official, my own lack of civility in the heat of battle has been on full display. And it wasn’t pretty. I should have been wise enough and humble enough to have listened to my mother, Jean, who so often would tell me, the third of nine children, to shut up and allow my siblings to speak, and to listen - really listen - to what they had to say. She knew I wasn’t listening so much as I was pausing before launching again into an argument. My mother tried to teach us Brazile kids a lesson we all need to heed as citizens: Listen more, talk less. Be civil to one another. Find common ground. Contempt is hatred towards others. These are the lessons and the attitude I will bring to Fox News.

I didn't even read all of that. But I'll just say, "wow." Interesting......

My mom used to tell me the same. Now I just wait until you finish to crush your ignorant argument instead of interrupting.

If she believes she will impact change onto standard Fox viewers, she will not. The standard Fox viewer won't tune into her, will be angry that she isn't white and will ask for boycotts. Unless she's becoming the female Juan Williams, white Fox viewers aren't interested.

She's an "admitted cheat". Her integrity and character are very questionable.

8:06 your right about the "Sprites." They are not rocking with this at all. Is she that desperate for work to go to FOX?? I don't know about this one...

Donna is still my girl (though me and my friends will dog her ass the next time we have lunch together) but even she won't get me to watch Faux News.

Donna must be very very hungry to go rob Fox to eat.
