Just a day after an article appeared in the New York Times in which Fox News president Roger Ailes said, “My first qualification is I didn’t go to Columbia Journalism School. There are no parties in this town that I want to go to,” he’s apparently decided that his 24-hour news outlet needs someone to bolster the retard-credibility factor. Yes, he’s asked Sarah Palin to contribute to Fox News.
The network confirmed that Ms. Palin will appear on the network’s programming on a regular basis as part of a multi-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Ms. Palin will not have her own regular program, one person familiar with the deal said, though she will host an occasional series that will run on the network from time to time. This person would not elaborate, but the network does have a precedent for such a series. Oliver L. North is the host of an occasionally running documentary series on the military called “War Stories.”
In a tangentially related story, people who think the world will end in 2012 according to Mayan prophecies have conceded that Palin’s presence on Fox could result in the apocalypse as early as June 15, 2010.
