Praising Fox News' hiring of Hillary Clinton strategist Howard Wolfson as a Fox News analyst, Matthew Sheffield writes in a July 8 NewsBusters post:
The list of FNC Democrats continues to grow. One thing that is notable about this trend is that, in contrast to the resident conservatives at CNN and MSNBC, Fox's liberals like Wolfson, [Lanny] Davis, and Susan Estrich, generally tend to be more "on-message" than CNN's and MSNBC's conservatives such as Tucker Carlson, Joe Scarborough, and Amy Holmes.
First, that's not quite true; Fox News has a history of hiring Democrats who like to criticize other Democrats or reinforce conservative stereotypes about them.
Second, Sheffield curiously leaves off his list of conservative analysts Bill Bennett and Terry Jeffrey (who, as editor of CNSNews.com, works just down the hall from Sheffield), who make regular appearances on CNN and are nothing if not on-message.
