Sarah Palin Lands Fox News Gig Ex-governor will be regular contributor By Kevin Spak, Newser Staff Posted Jan 11, 2010 1:21 PM CST 96 comments Comments In this Sept. 3, 2008 file photo, Republican vice presidential candidate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, pumps her fist during her speech at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn. (AP Photo/Ron Edmonds, file) (Newser) – Sarah Palin has signed a multiple-year deal to be a regular contributor to Fox News. Palin won’t get a regularly scheduled show but will host a series that airs occasionally, a network source tells the New York Times. The deal appears designed to allow Palin to pursue other ventures as well. The arrangement is a paradoxical one because of Palin's well-documented contempt for the media, notes Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post. She communicates with the public mostly through postings on her Facebook page, and her numerous detractors include not just Democrats but also other high-profile Republicans.
