    Default Rove to join Fox News

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Karl Rove, the strategist behind President George W. Bush's ascendancy to the White House, will join Rupert Murdoch's Fox News Channel as a contributor starting with Super Tuesday, the network said.

    Rove was chief strategist for Bush's 2000 presidential campaign and joined him in the White House in several capacities, including deputy chief of staff. He left the White House in August.

    Rove has been contributing opinion pieces to The Wall Street Journal, which also belongs to Murdoch's NewsCorp, and will debut on the television network with live coverage on Tuesday of the biggest day of the presidential primary election season, Fox said on Monday.

    Fox News Channel was the top-rated U.S. cable news network in 2007 in terms of viewership, ahead of rival CNN, according to Broadcasting & Cable magazine.

    Interesting news. What's your opinion on it?

    Rove? Obviously he will serve in a capacity as reporter at-large.

    Agreed, clone. But no Roving Reporter jokes anyone? Too easy and predictable I guess.

    I was thinking that they might have realized that they needed to do something to spice it up a bit since the Republican candidates are not much of a draw.

    Polarization is part of Fox's marketing strategy. And Rove will certainly add spice to that effect.

    One has to give Fox "News" a lot of credit though. They don't even attempt to hide their loyalty to the neocons, nor vice-versa (see Tony Snow).

    Chutzpah.

    Someone has to offset the obvious liberal bias of the other news outlets
