Weekly Standard editor William Kristol announced he no longer has an exclusive contract with Fox News and is now "free to inflict my insights on viewers of the other networks as well." Over the past decade, Kristol's "insights" have included horribly inaccurate predictions about the Iraq War, saber-rattling for war with Iran, dismissing legitimate military scandals, and smearing Democrats.
Kristol Says He's No Longer Exclusively With Fox And Is "A Free Agent"
Kristol: "Now I'll Be Free To Inflict My Insights On Viewers Of The Other Networks." William Kristol told The Weekly Standard, where he's the founder and editor, that he no longer has an exclusive contract with Fox News:

It was a great run, and I owe a lot to Chris Wallace, Brit Hume, Bret Baier, and the rest of the gang. I of course remain a huge Fox fan and look forward to continuing to appear there. But now I'll be free to inflict my insights on viewers of the other networks as well. So I'll join George Sunday, will go into battle on Morning Joe early next week, and anticipate making the case over the next weeks and months to more viewers in diverse settings. It should be fun.
