Andrea Tantaros: ‘I try and not be predictable; it’s just whatever I think’

The New York Observer profiles “the right wing’s new ‘It’ girl,” Fox News Channel’s Andrea Tantaros. As a co-host of “The Five,” Tantaros offers personal thoughts on the news of the day, a departure from her political beginnings as a communications strategist for political campaigns:

“It was liberating, I think, to not have to speak for somebody else, because it was always in their voice,” Ms. Tantaros said, noting that once in a while she disagreed with the positions of her candidates, who ran a narrow gamut from moderate Republican to very conservative Republican. “So I promised myself that, when I was speaking for myself and not somebody else, that I would be completely unbridled by talking points or any party, and that’s what I try and do. I try and not be predictable; it’s just whatever I think.”
