I was wondering why Bloody Bill Kristol was showing up on ABC over the weekend and on Morning Joe this Tuesday instead of sticking to Fox to spread his lies, and this explains it.

"Free Agent" Bill Kristol Now Available To Misinform On Non-Fox Networks:

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:

I'm now a free agent. For the last decade, I've had a series of contracts that committed me exclusively to Fox. 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.

Go read the rest of the post for their very long list documenting what we've known forever about Bill Kristol around here as well and his record on being wrong about... just about everything.

If you thought Morning Joe couldn't get any worse, the clip above with the beginning of Kristol's appearance this Tuesday is proof that there's always more room to fall with that show.
