Sarah Palin, Fox News apparently bury hatchet; former Governor re-joins network

Fox NewsThe following news is probably going to make you very excited or very frustrated, depending on your political affiliation and fondness for a former Alaska Governor as Sarah Palin is going to be back on Fox News beginning on Monday morning’s edition of “Fox & Friends.” She was previously a part of the network’s team, but the two went their separate ways earlier this year and even exchanged some unpleasant words here and there.

In a statement released on Thursday about her big return, the one-time Vice-Presidential candidate said that a move to return to a network is something that she is “proud” to be a part of:

“The power of Fox News is unparalleled. The role of Fox News in the important debates in our world is indispensable … I am pleased and proud to be rejoining Roger Ailes and the great people at Fox.”

Meanwhile, Ailes (who serves as the president of the network) also said the following in expressing some gratitude to have Palin back on board:

“I’ve had several conversations with Governor Palin in the past few weeks about her rejoining Fox News as a contributor. I have great confidence in her and am pleased that she will once again add her commentary to our programming. I hope she continues to speak her mind.”

That following sentence is perhaps the most important here, since you are dealing with someone here who will create controversy, sometimes in spite of whether you want it or not.
