FOX News Channel (FNC) has signed former Democratic National Committee
Chairwoman Donna Brazile as a contributor, the network announced today.
Brazile, a veteran Democratic strategist, will offer political analysis
across both FNC and FOX Business Network’s (FBN) daytime and primetime
programming. She will make her first appearance on The Daily Briefing
with Dana Perino at 2 PM/ET today.
In commenting on the announcement, Brazile said, "I'm delighted to be
joining FOX News. I know I'm going to get criticized from my friends in
the progressive movement for being on FOX News. My response is that, if
we've learned anything from the 2016 election, it is that we can't have
a country where we don't talk to those who disagree with our political
views. There's an audience on FOX News that doesn't hear enough from
Democrats. We have to engage that audience and show Americans of every
stripe what we stand for rather than retreat into our 'safe spaces'
where we simply agree with each other. For there is no safety in
self-limiting numbers. You can be darn sure that I'm still going to be
me on FOX News. I'm going to do what I always do: and dish it out
straight, exactly as I see it, with just as much New Orleans hot sauce
as folks expect."
Prior to joining FNC, Brazile was the interim National Chair of the
Democratic National Committee (DNC) during the 2016 presidential
election where she led the efforts to support Democratic candidates. She
also served as chair of the DNC’s Voting Rights Institute, as well as
vice chair of Civic Engagement and Voter Participation at the DNC.
As the first African-American woman to manage a major presidential
campaign, Brazile has participated in every presidential campaign from
1976 through 2000. An adjunct professor, she has also lectured at
universities throughout the country on a variety of pressing topics,
ranging from civility in American politics to race relations. In 2009,
Brazile was chosen as one of O Magazine’s “Remarkable
Visionaries” and was named one of the “100 Most Powerful Women” by The
Washingtonian. She is a recipient of the Congressional Black Caucus
Foundation’s highest award for political achievement.
Brazile is the author of the New York Times bestseller Hacks:
The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump
in the White House and the bestselling memoir Cooking With
Grease: Stirring the Pots in American Politics. Most recently, she
was one of the distinguished co-authors of For Colored Girls Who Have
Considered Politics, which she wrote alongside Yolanda Caraway, Leah
Daughtry, and Minyon Moore. She is also a syndicated columnist.
A native of Louisiana, she is the recipient of over ten honorary
doctorate degrees, including honorary doctorates from her alma mater
Louisiana State University, North Carolina A&T State University, and
Xavier University of Louisiana. Additionally, Brazile is founder and
managing director of Brazile & Associates LLC, a general consulting,
grassroots advocacy, and training firm based in Washington, DC.
