What’s happening at Fox News Now?
Donna Brazile, who served as interim DNC chair in 2016, will soon be joining Fox News Channel as a political analyst.
In a statement, Fox News said:
“Brazile, a veteran Democratic strategist, will offer political analysis across both Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network’s daytime and primetime programming.”
Brazile has also worked as a political analyst for CNN and ABC. In an op-ed published by Fox News, she said,
“I know I’m going to get criticized from my friends in the progressive movement for being on Fox News. My response is that, if we’ve learned anything from the 2016 election, it is that we can’t have a country where we don’t talk to those who disagree with our political views.
There’s an audience on Fox News that doesn’t hear enough from Democrats. We have to engage that audience and show Americans of every stripe what we stand for rather than retreat into our ‘safe spaces’ where we simply agree with each other.”

Controversy: Brazile Gives the Clinton Campaign Debate Questions
After DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned, Brazile was named the interim DNC Chair in 2016. Wikileaks reported that Brazile provided questions to the Hillary Clinton campaign in advance during one of CNN’s Democratic primary debates.
CNN ended up booting Brazile from the network in an attempt to distance themselves from the scandal. Fox News did say that Brazile, “will not be involved with debates or town halls at the network.”
