Fox News’ Newest Contributor, Liberal Activist Sally Kohn: ‘They Want a Good Fight on the Issues’

There’s a new face on the roster of Fox News contributors: Sally Kohn, an openly gay liberal activist. Kohn, who talked to Megyn Kelly on “America Live” this afternoon, tells Role/Reboot that she chose Fox News because she thought she could “make a difference there”:

Look, Fox News makes no bones about its opinion programming being center right-leaning. I actually think that’s refreshing—you know where they stand. But they certainly don’t put me on air and tell me what to say and tie my hands. They want a good fight on the issues and they want good progressives who are standing up for our side.

More often, I think the problem is that good progressives refuse to appear on Fox, which seems to me a wasted opportunity. You know that old joke: Why do people rob banks? Because that’s where the money is! Well, Fox News is where the largest audience is. Why wouldn’t we want to speak with them and engage?
