Here’s the Sunday open line. We’ll include interesting news — Mike Huckabee feeling some economic pressure from one of his co-workers at Fox News.
Fox News’ host Howard Kurtz on Sunday urged the network to drop contributors if they are considering a run for office.
Fox dropped Dr. Ben Carson as a contributor, which Kurtz said was a good call.
“This was a smart move by Fox because a guy who’s more or less running for president shouldn’t be on a network payroll,” he said. “Which means Fox also faces a decision about former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who is openly weighing a White House bid as well.”
I think Howard Kurtz might have just been dropped from the Huckster’s Christmas card list.
