Fox News brings on Donna Brazile and Paul Ryan

Paul Mirengoff

March 19, 2019

Fox News has added Donna Brazile, former interim chair of the DNC, as a commentator. It has also appointed Former House Speaker Paul Ryan to the board of Fox Corp., the newly formed parent company of Fox News.

(Snip)

The knee-jerk liberal reaction to Ryan’s appointment to the Fox Corp. board is that it formalizes the “merger” of Fox News and the Republican party. However, Ryan’s selection is probably less than palatable to President Trump and his hard core supporters.

For better or for worse, Fox News is the gatekeeper of conservative thought for millions of Americans. Thus, it’s a matter of great moment whether the network is dominated by “establishment” types or by Trumpians.

At this juncture, Ryan is a quintessential establishment Republican and, though he often worked with Trump as Speaker, I don’t think he’s a fan of the president or of the populist wing of the GOP. We’ll see whether, from his position on the board, he will want to change the political bent of the commentary on Foz News and, if so, whether he’ll be able to.
