Sarah Huckabee Sanders Is Joining Fox News

Former White House Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is joining Fox News.

“FOX News has been the number one news organization in the country for 17 years running and I am beyond proud to join their incredible stable of on-air contributors in providing political insights and analysis,” Sanders said in a statement about her new position, USA Today reports.

On Thursday afternoon, the Fox News network confirmed the former talking piece for the Trump administration has signed on as an official contributor.

“FOX News has signed former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders as a contributor,” the network said via BizPac Review.

“Sanders will provide political commentary and analysis across all of FOX News Media, including FOX News Channel (FNC), FOX Business Network (FBN), FOX News Digital, FOX Nation and the radio/podcast division. She will make her debut on FOX & Friends during its next live audience show on September 6th,” the statement continued per the report.

According to the report, several journalists and reporters criticizing the move:

BizPac Review reports these criticisms are unfounded as several other former White House advisors under the Obama administration made similar transitions:

That would certainly be news to former Obama administration adviser Ben Rhodes, who joined liberal media news outlets NBC News and MSNBC in 2017; former Obama administration press secretary Josh Earnest, who joined the same networks in 2017; and fellow former Obama administration press secretary Jay Carney, who joined liberal news outlet CNN in 2014.

According to conservative commentator Erick Erickson, a slew of other Obama administration officials have, over the years, wound up with jobs in the demonstrably left-wing media.

“During the Obama Administration, many members of the media floated in and out of the administration and in and out of leftwing blogs and think tanks. They are still around with many of them serving as reporters and their leftwing friends as active members of the Democrats’ ‘resistance,’” he noted in a column at the end of Trump’s first year in office.

“They trade information and shape each other’s worldviews and I am not convinced the heads of media outlets are doing enough to push their reporters to separate their worldview from the facts at hand. As a result, we are not getting the whole truth, but a narrative within which facts are shaped to advance the narrative.”
