Roseanne Barr has a lot on her to-do list this year. In addition to seeking the Green Party’s Presidential nomination, she’s interested in getting involved in cable news punditry. On Fox News. Wait, what? Barr explains in an interview with the New York Observer‘s Politicker:
“They’ve always been so fair and nice to me at Fox,” she elaborated. “I just don’t like Fox when it doesn’t get the complete fair and balance, but I do think they do try to, even though some of the people like Sean Hannity and stuff, the things they attack are just ridiculous. But yet, they have the right to do that. You can’t discount that people have the right to freedom of speech. I told Fox I’d sure like to have a show on there, because the people who watch Fox News are people like me also. So, it would be good to be really fair and balanced and have a nice left point of view on there.”
