Sarah Palin is joining Fox News as a contributor. The fringe media has made note of this and are kicking their smear machine back into high gear (it's always running, they just have periods of peak activity).
So the question is, is this fear?
Follow Drudge on a daily basis and you will note that he releases the cable news race numbers on a regular basis. If you have seen this or something similar you will know this is a very creative use of the word "race".
There really isn't a cable news race right now. There is Fox having their way and the fringe media is on life support. Virtually every week, all Fox shows outrank all other cable news shows. Some Fox shows such as O'Reilly, Hannity, and Beck get close to having as many viewers as all of the shows on an entire network combined.
I think the rest of the networks know that Palin is going to kill them. My prediction is that she will wind up with her own show and compete with the big 3 personalities on Fox for the most watched show.
She has personality, charm, good looks and a knack for talking to everyday people. This is a package no one in cable news has right now.
I said earlier in the week that the fringe media are in the toilet right now and Sarah Palin is getting ready to flush them down the drain.
