Five Bloggers I’d Like To See On FOX News
This is a new post in an ongoing series about FOX News.
FOX News features commentary from multiple news outlets on the air all the time but they’re a little short on conservative bloggers. Read below as I offer my two cents about who I’d like to see on the air and feel free to leave your suggestions in the comment section. Furthermore, if any of the bloggers I mention below have appeared on FOX News, please let me know.
Now, Five bloggers I’d like to see on FOX News…
5. Ed Morrissey
Hot Air is one of the best conservative blogs on the web and Ed Morrissey drives most of the content on the site. I’ve seen Hot Air cited on Special Report with Bret Baier but I’ve never seen Ed Morrissey offer commentary on camera. Mary Katherine Ham is frequently a guest on The O’Reilly Factor but she was making appearances on that show before she joined Hot Air. Ed Morrissey is an excellent blogger who always reports honestly and deals in facts. It would be great to see him offer his opinion on the air. I’d say the same thing about Allahpundit but I don’t think he does public appearances.
Powerline is a daily must-read blog for anyone who’s interested in American politics from a conservative perspective. John Hinderaker and his colleagues offer fact based analysis on taxes, policy, liberal media bias and much more. FOX News viewers would benefit from his take on national issues.
3. Ann Althouse
No one on the right side of the blogosphere covered the story of Scott Walker vs. the unions in Wisconsin more closely than Ann Althouse and yet I never saw her featured on FOX to report her first person observations. She had original videos, photos and interviews with people on the ground.
In the interest of full disclosure, I’m a contributor at William Jacobson’s College Insurrection blog but I assure you that has no influence on what I’m about to say. In addition to offering excellent political analysis, William Jacobson’s Legal Insurrection blog has been a one stop shop for original investigative reports on Elizabeth Warren. In the lead up to the 2012 election, William Jacobson often did more original reporting in a day than the MSM did in a month. Why haven’t we seen him on FOX News?
There is simply no other conservative libertarian blogger who wields more influence than Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit. If you watch the prime time line-up on FOX News any given night and then read Instapundit, you will find that many of the stories featured on FOX were covered by Glenn earlier in the day. Why he is not a frequent featured guest on FOX News is an absolute mystery to me.
