Former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee Donna Brazile is joining Fox News as a contributor.
Brazile says she’s “excited by the opportunity to share my perspective and views with the Fox News audience and to help shape the dialogue at this important juncture in our history. More importantly, I’m eager to learn from the experience.”
With the 2020 election coming up, Brazile says people need to hear “what others are saying without the filter of bias” and that “when we refuse to hear one another, we wall ourselves off from the possibility of learning and, more importantly, finding common ground.”
Brazile doesn’t expect to agree with her Fox family, but says she will listen then challenge them on the views she doesn’t align with.
Will I question them if they make assertions about hard-working Americans, low-income people and issues like climate change that I disagree with? Absolutely. But I will do so with civility and respect. I will also freely admit the weaknesses in liberal arguments and the strength in conservative positions. And I welcome the opportunity to challenge many of the false assumptions about progressives, especially those newly elected to Congress.
To leave the world a better place, you need to help make the world a better place. Just as it takes many ingredients to make a good gumbo, it will require listening to many voices before we are able to move forward as one people. And that’s exactly why I am so excited to join the honest and passionate debate at Fox News about our future. I invite you to join me.
Brazile was fired from CNN after reports surfaced that she gave debate questions to Hillary Clinton’s campaign beforehand.
