The AP’s David Bauder writes about Lanny Davis and Howard Wolfson, close advisers to the Hillary Clinton for President campaign, now political analysts for Fox News. And how they got to Fox is as interesting as why they’re there.
Davis and Wolfson came to Fox this summer following bad experiences with rival networks, although they both declined to discuss them. Wolfson and Clinton’s inner circle resented MSNBC, believing the network’s top talkers favored Barack Obama‘s candidacy. Davis, a former special counsel to President Clinton, looked like he swallowed a lemon during his last primary-night guest appearance on CNN.
But do they get grief from fellow Democrats for signing-on with FNC? “Less than I expected, but still some,” Davis said. “The some were from the places that have a stereotype about Fox, but when I asked them if they ever actually watched Fox, the answer is almost never.”
