Fox News is trying to add some more political diversity to their programming by hiring former DNC chair Donna Brazile, which caused viewers to immediately flip out and attack the network.
In light of the DNC decision to bar Fox News from hosting a 2020 Democratic primary debate because of the network’s biased support of President Donald Trump, the conservative media channel is apparently trying to pull back from the corrupt ties or at least make it look like they are trying to pull back, by hiring Brazile, whom Fox frequently accused of giving former 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton a debate question in advance.
The accusation ignited a conservative furor even though they didn’t have a problem with Fox giving Trump questions in advance.
Fox News host Howard Schultz announced the hire on Twitter:
Donna Brazile on being signed as a Fox contributor: “There’s an audience on Fox News that doesn’t hear enough from Democrats. We have to engage that audience.”

Fox viewers then bombarded the network with accusations of betrayal because the hire comes as Jeanine Pirro remains suspended for launching an Islamophobic attack against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).
I understand. Since 90% of the MSM covers Dems talking points to insanity we need to hear more about them! Bring back Judge Jeanine! We need more sanity! @JudgeJeanine

Fox suspends Judge Jennine, hires Donna Brazille and keeps Shepherd Smith. What’s that tell us? OAN for me.

Ok, don’t mind me if I disengage from Fox.

You are losing viewers because of this.

It appears fox is starting to lean to the left. First judge Jeanne is gone now bringing on Donna Brazille. Time for a new network. Nothing but conservatives

Take a look. You’re losing more than you are gaining. The democrats only spew fake news. Welcome Fox News to Fake News. Change the channel to OAN. or Newsy. Both are not going to have a bunch of lying democrats. Wake up America. These suits at Fox News are democrats.

As @FoxNews tries desperately to gain legitimacy and acceptance in the MSM, grasping for a place on the Democrat debates, they are selling the only soul they had: the viewers who found Fox in the beginning, when they were our only voice. Sacrifice Pirro and Tucker on the alter…

Fox is going down hill.

She’s a cheat. Why would we want to hear from anybody that doesn’t play by the rules? @FoxNews better bring back the judge or I’m not watching anymore

All Fox News fans did is prove they are hypocrites and extremists. It’s not like Fox hired Brazile to run their 2020 coverage like CNN hired a Trump loyalist to run theirs. Brazile is there to offer a Democratic perspective, a voice that conservatives don’t hear much of because they are busy getting conservative propaganda within an echo chamber.
If anything, Fox News viewers made it clear that they are deplorable brainwashed Trump supporters who act like complete snowflakes who need a safe space anytime a Democrat appears on a show they like.
