With Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee all making moves indicating they may run for president, their common employer is facing a question that hasn’t been asked before: How does a news organization cover White House hopefuls when so many are on the payroll?
The answer is a complicated one for Fox News.
As Fox’s popularity grows among conservatives, the presence of four potentially serious Republican candidates as paid contributors is beginning to frustrate competitors of the network, figures within its own news division and rivals of what some GOP insiders have begun calling “the Fox candidates.”
The matter is of no small consequence, since it’s uncertain how other news organizations can cover the early stages of the presidential race when some of the main GOP contenders are contractually forbidden to appear on any TV network besides Fox.
A total conflict of interest. How do the continue to be fair & balanced. When republicans were poled who would you like to see run for President in 2012 they were all in the top 5 of that list, and lets not forget about Sarah Palin. It is not a big leap that there is a chance one of them might run, who their constituents want.Stop trying to say its hypothetical, when in your own poleit states what you all want.
