Fox News is portrayed as an evil place by most American liberals –
which makes an op-ed piece by liberal Fox commentator Susan Estrich
this week in The Christian Science Monitor quite intriguing. The story starts like this:

I work for Fox News and I say whatever I want. I’m the blonde on the
left, figuratively and literally – the one who’s usually smiling
because it’s TV, not the Supreme Court or Congress, and I find civility
more effective in any event.

why shouldn’t I be smiling? Prior to working for Fox, I worked for ABC
and NBC, spent a lot of time at CNN, and almost ended up at CBS. I
worked for a bunch of local stations in Los Angeles and had a talk
radio show at KABC for six years. In other words, I’m fortunate enough
to have been around, and Fox News is the best place I’ve ever worked.

come to expect the jabs at Fox News – because being a liberal, I get
more than most. I work there in part because, six or seven years ago,
they offered me a better deal than NBC at the time; and because, as a
feminist and a Democrat, I think it’s particularly important to have a
dialogue with people who aren’t already members of the same choir –
that’s the way we will ultimately have to win elections.
