The one eternal, immutable truth of television is that the people who appear on it deserve lots and lots of attention. Your Cronkites and Murrows. Your Koppels and Wallaces. Your Snookis. And now…
Former Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska has signed on as a contributor to the Fox News Channel.
The network confirmed that Ms. Palin would appear on the network’s programming on a regular basis as part of a multiyear deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Ms. Palin will not have her own regular program, one person with knowledge of the deal said, though she will host a 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."
Maybe she could call her show "Breaking Moose," because of how she likes to hunt moose! Or "On Ice with Sarah Palin," because she is a hockey mom. Or maybe "Teen Beat," because she likes to engage in protracted blood feuds with teenagers in the press.
Seriously. This is a thing that is happening.
