The Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol Joins ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos


Looks like Fox News and ABC News exchange conservative contributors …

The Politico is reporting that the Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol is joining ABC News and ABC’s  ”This Week” with George Stephanopoulos as a contributor and analyst. Interestingly enough, just recently FOX News poached  political columnist and author George Will as a contributor from ABC.


A source  familiar with the negotiations says the former Fox News commentator has landed with ABC in a handshake agreement that they’re about to sign. ABC News spokesperson Heather Riley also confirmed Kristol’s move in an email.

The agreement, one source said, includes regular appearances on the Sunday show, as well as special events and other political-relaed events. But there’s also a window that allows him to do other shows on cable television.

Kristol ended a decade-long run as Fox News contributor last summer two years after he and Roger Ailes got into a disagreement that had a cooling effect on their relationship.
