The Fox Network has invited me to be a contributor. I’m happy for that opportunity, and I’ll continue to express a point of view that many of my supporters are already familiar with.
THR: That point of view may not necessarily be the generally accepted Fox News point of view. Do you anticipate any trouble?
Kucinich: In the last 10 years, I have been on Fox many, many times. And I know the people, I have a working relationship, we’ve had an energetic exchange of views, and we shall continue to do so.
THR: What does a contributor role look like? How often will you be on?
Kucinich: I’m like a utility infielder, so I’ll be on there once in a while.

“We would like to introduce you to our new Fox News contributor, another wild conservative guy,” Bill O’Reilly said, introducing Kucinich. “Wow, what a conversion!”
Karl Rove has re-upped with Fox News Channel, Politico’s Mike Allen reports. The multi-year deal will keep the political analyst on the channel through the 2016 election, where, who knows?, he may challenge Fox News results that election night too.
Rove made headlines on election night when he disputed FNC’s call of the election for Pres. Obama. Fox News founder and chairman Roger Ailes recounted what happened in an interview with TVNewser: “As it turned out Rove was wrong. He backed down. Our guys were right. We stayed with it. Megyn did her famous walk down the hall. And it all worked out.”
Rove joined Fox as a contributor in February 2008. Before that he was Senior Adviser to Pres. George W. Bush.
Update: Press release after the jump. Ailes: Rove is “an important player in our ongoing political coverage.”
Fox News Channel has signed former Congressman Dennis Kucinich as a paid contributor to FNC and Fox Business network. Kucinich, who was for years a liberal stalwart in the House of Representatives, will provide analysis and commentary across all of FNC and FBN’s programs, beginning with Thursday’s edition of “The O’Reilly Factor.”
“I’ve always been impressed with Rep. Kucinich’s fearlessness and thoughtfulness about important issues,” said Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes in a statement. “His willingness to take a stand from his point of view makes him a valuable voice in our country’s debate.”
Kucinich represented Ohio’s 10th district in Congress for 16 years, officially leaving office earlier this month. He also ran for President in 2004 and 2008, seeking the Democratic nomination.
“Through 16 years in Congress and two presidential campaigns, Fox News has always provided me with an opportunity to share my perspective with its enormous viewership,” Kucinich said in a statement. “I look forward to a continuation of our relationship this time as a Fox News contributor.”
ABC News may have lead the way on Toyota coverage, but CBS News got a shout out during today’s testimony on Capitol Hill.
Kucinich: CBS had an exclusive where they were able to gain some internal documents that showed that Toyota redesigned software in 2005 in response to complaints that cars were accelerating unexpectedly. Are you familiar with those documents?
LaHood: No sir. I am not.
Kucinich: Are you interested in that kind of a report?
LaHood: Yes sir.
For President Bill Clinton‘s speech at the Democratic National Convention tonight, we made our way out to the convention floor and grabbed some video.
We stationed ourselves near the CNN BPTOT stage, where Anderson Cooper and John King watched the speech intently, while the rest of the panel seemed a bit less interested. See the video of the scene from the floor, and after the jump, more videos (including our run-in with Dennis Kucinich, what the convention floor looks like at 9:15amET and more):
