It’s official: Fox News confirmed Wednesday that The Federalist co-founder Ben Domenech had been hired to serve as a regular contributor.
According to Fox, Domenech will appear on a variety of Fox News Media channels and host a weekly podcast.
“I am honored to join FOX News Media’s accomplished roster of contributors,” Domenech said, according to Fox.
“As we embark on this transformative year, I look forward to sharing my perspective with FOX’s informed and engaged viewers across all of their platforms,” he added.
Joining the team
In a statement of her own, Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott said the journalist’s “insightful opinions have added depth to our coverage and engendered trust from our viewers.”
“We are proud to welcome him to the Fox News Media family and are confident he will make an excellent addition to our unparalleled team of contributors,” Scott added of Domenech.
In addition to his work at Fox and The Federalist, Domenech’s resume includes speechwriting roles at the Department of Health and Human Services and for Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), according to the Daily Caller.
In his bio, Domenech says his “writing has been published in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Politico, Commentary, Reason, and GQ.”
He’s also married to The View co-host Meghan McCain, the Daily Caller notes.
“Talk about unity”
Domenech’s voice will likely be a refreshing one for Fox viewers who aren’t buying into the idea of a new brand of Republican Party that is being pushed by the likes of Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Liz Cheney (R-WY), who The Federalist publisher said “is now persona non grata” in a recent column.
In another piece for The Federalist, Domenech called out President Joe Biden for pushing “a lot of talk about unity, and a lot of condemnations of other Americans along the way.”
“The mixed message of what you were being told and what you saw on screen was obvious,” Domenech added. “The Bidens feel temporary, the government feels fragile, and the media’s attempts at spin and fluff feel irritating but obvious — as John Cleese would say, like setting Julie Andrews on fire.”
