    Yeah.... that's great. I can't think of anything positive or pleasant to say. Are journalist and news organizations suppose to pander to their audience? Or has Fox News changed their name to Fox News Entertainment. What used to be called All Star Wrestling in now called Sports Entertainment. When a 300 pound man jumps off the ropes on top of an opponent it would sure hurt, but is it real a sport? More of the same marketing plan same from Fox. Staring Sarah Palin! Oh boy….

    Move over, Leno-here comes your replacement! Or, maybe she plans to replace Oprah in Sept. 2011.

    Of course she would end up @ FOX; they are a perfect fit. Each operates off of the same two pricipals: fallicy and falderal. Atta girl, go get -em, Sarah!

    Doesn't surprise me at all. Fox is where she belongs. I'm just so sorry I won't get to see her make a fool of herself since I never watch any channel starting with "Fox"! And the people who do watch Fox won't know when she makes a fool of herself, HAHAHAHAHAHA.

    I love Palin, agree with her values, and can't wait to see her segments on FOX.

    So happy I don't watch FOX EVER! This one would make me leave the country for sure if she ever ascends to any power at all! maybe this was what she was after all along!

    Oh, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I can see her on Meet The Press along with Mr. 911, Phil Graham, Gingrich and the like. Stay off the TV, Lady! Good reason to just say "NO" to Cable!

    Something needs to be done about Fox News. It is a virus on television, profiting from political strife. It is a Jerry Springer show, labeled as "News". Such yellow journalism should be illegal. They are blatant liars who discredit the GOP with hypocrisy and sensationalism.

    The GOP is above this, or was at one time at least. There are no GOP moral values which are compatible with the activities of Fox News. It is time to clean house!!!!!!!

    I can't wait... Imagine all the material Stewart, Colbert and Keith Olberman will have to work with... She will make me a regular of their shows.

    Should be an easy gig for the pimpstress. All she has to do is r-e-a-d the teleprompter. Even she can't screw that up, right? You betchya! Ah, Fox noise and Palin. A match made in hell. People will tune in just to see her struggle with the big words. Say good-bye to Herr Beck!

    Hey,
    You liberals are really scared of Sarah, you keep bashing her on every front. She tells it like it is, and will be a great asset on FOX

    If this was not such a tragedy it would be laughable. This might be the dumbest move FOX has ever made. Anyone who really believes that Sarah Palin is the future of the GOP should spend more time at the library or on the Internet doing real research. When John McCain speaks in private, he refers to Sarah Palin as a joke that destroyed his chance to be president.

    Those ratings will go up. Any liberal network would have even benefited form her appearance.

    This is as shocking as Mark McGwire admitting steorid use

    It's very fitting. Fox "News" (I use that term loosely) would hire her because that audience voted for her and McCain in 2008. It's an openly hateful, borderline racist television station I still won't support.

    I am so not surprised. She will be a great fit for Fox, being a right-wing wacko.

    What better network for another brainless wonder.

    Don't be surprised if she bails out, say 2 years into a 4-year contract. Will FOX be opening an office with a view of Russia?
