Van Susteren added that Palin still “has a big impact (check out the number of Facebook followers! 3.5 million!) and should be part of the national debate." She also noted hat her return “is free promo for Fox since it will drive her TV critics crazy! They are obsessed with her!”
According to an official Fox press release, Palin will return to her role as a contributor to the Fox News Channel and the Fox Business Network’s daytime and prime-time programming. She will make her first return appearance on the Fox & Friends morning show next Monday.
Regarding the return of the feisty conservative, Fox chairman Roger Ailes said: “I’ve had several conversations with governor Palin in the past few weeks about her rejoining Fox News as a contributor.”
I have great confidence in her and am pleased that she will once again add her commentary to our programming. I hope she continues to speak her mind. (Continues)
