Politico media reporter Dylan Byers reports that CNN contributor and RedState editor Erick Erickson is moving to Fox News. FishbowlDC also reports that Erickson will “be foregoing his CNN contract and sources say he will be heading to Fox News.”

Haters gonna hate:

Heh:

Update:

Erickson confirms he’s leaving CNN, but makes no mention of a new gig at Fox.

Update:

OK, maybe a little mention of Fox:

And … confirmed:

  • rinodino

    Everybody on the right will be under one big tent soon and they will truly be in their own universe.

    • Fire and Adjust!

      So you admit that there is no one on the right anywhere but at Fox? Yet you would simultaneously claim that the rest of the media is bipartisan?

      • $27789750

        Heh….convoluted but appealing logic. lol

      • rinodino

        It seems that a lot of them are going to fox, and don’t get me wrong I’m not talking about the pundits that are moderates you know the “Rinos” I’m talking about the wild wild right

        • journogal

          What’s the wild, wild right? People who have a different opinion than you?

          Speaking of which, does Prissy Matthews still get spontaneous emissions listening to the African Queen?

      • Jack Deth

        Careful, tom:

        Skippy’s trying to defend the indefensible with bed wetting, government teat weaned, liberal logic.

        His head may explode. Or he may get Lockjaw… Curious to see which.

    • Jack Deth

      Typical Media Matters, nickle of word, ass backwards, liberal logic and drivel on display here.

      That “universe” has been beating the crap out of CNN. MSNBC and the Democrat troika of ABC, CBS and NBC in ratings for years, Skip

      • rinodino

        Yet who’s been getting the crap beat out if them in national elections? Skip

        • Fire and Adjust!

          Congressional democrats

          • rinodino

            Yep who happened to be named akin, mourdock, Allen and Walsh

          • Fire and Adjust!

            Eh gads, you’ve been able to account for 4 out of 435 (less than one percent) of the House seats………. congratulations

          • journogal

            Remember, math is hard for liberals.

        • journogal

          Actually it is the country that is getting the crap beat out of them. But what do you care, as long the checks keep rolling in and President Prezzy “promises” you that he’ll take care of those evil, rich people for you (of course, he means evil, rich conservatives, because in both of your worlds rich liberals aren’t evil.) What a mindless puppet you are.

        • TomJB

          50.4% of voters chose President Obama.

          I don’t think this “crap beating” think you speak about means what you think it means.

        • Jack Deth

          The party of non Socialist lockstep Unions, Media, Academia, Hollywood and Low Intelligence Voters.

          • 6cheri6

            And the people bused in from other states, the “dead” voters, and the illegals that voted. Not to mention those that voted multiple times.

          • Judy B

            And the numerous counties that reported greater than 100% of registered voters…how did they do that? FRAUD!

        • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

          I don’t remember the Republicans losing 63 seats in the last 112 years.

          Furthermore, do you really think that a 51-47 win with the libertarian getting over 1% of the vote is a big win for the left? How about seven Senate seats being decided by 3 points or less?

          Especially since you needed 71% and 95% of Hispanics and Blacks and massive support from single women to even compete when 3 million registered republicans, many of them seniors, stayed home???

          What happens when we get a Rubio/Haley ticket?

        • Judy B

          Election was stolen.

    • journogal

      Didn’t Fox hire Dennis Kucinich as well? When did he become an evvvvvvil “right winger?” http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2013/01/16/fox-news-hires-dennis-kucinich/
      And in a way, you’ve also pointed out that there are no dissenting voices (evil, terrible right wingers) on CNN or MSNBC. Do you consider those two cable news networks as big tents for the left, or do they get a pass because they say what you want to hear.

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Why not? The Left is in its own little universe already, shoved up President Sock Puppet’s nether sphincter.

    • JoycefromTexas

      Not until they get rid of Sheppard Smith…Bob Beckel…Juam Williams …etc…etc

    • Sean Connolly

      Kinda like the way the left has been for a long time now.

  • Joe W.

    Erickson is a loser in my book. Ever since that immature melt down and vicious assault on Sarah Palin over her indecision to run for POTUS, I have avoided him. Fox has done themselves no favors by hiring the man.

    • http://twitter.com/MWaddamsStapler Patrick Brewer

      Says the man with Quack Addict as his icon. Yep… this guy knows all about maturity.

      • Joe W.

        So in your world, people who raise ducks and enjoy it are immature?? Your avatar labels you as a pedophile, champ. How do you like them apples, eh?? Idiot.

        • v1cious

          A backwoods, right wing anti-gay duck farmer? Man the more I learn about you, the more amused I am. You have to be one of my favorite posters on this board. How do you even get internet?

          • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

            If you want to criticize a farmer, go to Minnesota, Iowa or Michigan were ethanol and wind subsidies are evermore.

            “Backwoods” people are paying the bills in this country, not left-wing liberals with fancy-pants humanities degrees that rely on market manipulation to give them cozy jobs.

            BTW, being against so-called “gay marriage” isn’t anti-gay. There are plenty GLBTQ folks who reject the progressive movement.

            You sure about that? http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-11-05/republican-heavy-counties-eat-up-most-food-stamp-growth.html

          • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

            Yes. And I like it when liberals generalize about red states and red counties, which also happen to have a good share of democrats in them.

            In fact, it is democrat constituencies that are by far and away dependent on government assistance.

            Of course, I don’t expect shallow mainstream media reporting to be analyze situations like that.

            And all would be better off if they were dependent on the private sector and not greedy government.

          Joe, when you raise a duck do they usually call or just fold?

          Joe, I just have to know. When you raise a duck do they usually call or just fold?

          • Joe W.

            Sometimes they have been known to even raise me back when they have a good webfoot…er a good hand….

    • Finrod Felagund

      I didn’t like how he treated Palin either (I stayed away for about a week), but everyone has a dumbass attack now and then.

      • Joe W.

        True, but Erik never acknowledged his attack at being dumb. He stands by it to this day. I can get along just fine without Red State. Just my personal opinion…nothing more.

      • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

        The thing people need to understand on this thread is that Palin, along Bachmann, Cain and others, are hated by both establishments because minority conservatives would doom the progressive left and on the right they still want their inside goodies and their people are paranoid telling them they have to pander to women and gays to some extent or the GOP is extinct.

        It’s a bunch of hogwash.

        The last time we had a REAL conservative in 1984, well, we all know what happened.

  • Guest

    Is he just replacing Bob Beckel, or does Fox really hire an additional lefty/RINO?

  • Hiraghm

    Erik… who?

  • TMZ2

    Not sure what to make of this because I don’t understand why he is leaving CNN and why he went on CNN in the first place. I’ve been lukewarm on this guy. I don’t care where he goes honestly because I am concerned now with too many things. I have no hard feelings about Eric as I have warmed up to him a little since 2010 because his website commentary was interesting. I am just not sure what this does in the long run. Eric was coming on Hannity sometimes before he ran off to CNN. His choice. But Palin just left Fox News so now Palin, West (he ran off to PJTV), Bachmann (She is lying low), Santorum, and Cain (he is with a radio show) are not coming on the channel.

    • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

      And that maybe for the best. The top brass at FOX is pretty liberal, but they are at heart capitalists who see a huge market among conservatives and independents who are tired of the fawning over Obama dribble.

        Name ONE Republican with their OWN show on CNN, MsNBC or any of the other networks.

    FoxNews is moving to the left this time or which direction?

    Maybe this was a speedbump?

    Who cares. They’re hiring Marxists like they’re on sale.

    • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

      Relax, BK! FOX has done a remarkable at representing all points of view, and they have to compensate to some degree because democrats rarely except invites to be on the network!
