Let This Sink In: James Carville Goes From Fox News To Media Matters

Here’s a feat that’s rarely possible: You go straight from Fox News to Media Matters.

Try that on for size, because Democratic strategist and longtime Clinton loyalist James Carville has achieved what seems like it should be the impossible.

Media Matters, a lefty watchdog group, an arm of the Democratic Party and perpetual hater of Fox News, proudly announced the news this week in a statement.

Carville will be a “reoccurring guest contributor,” according to the lefty site HuffPost.

In his first column, “Chin Scratchers Take a Breath,” he critiqued the Washington Press Corps covering Hillary Clinton‘s email fiasco. He wrote about the unfairness of how the media covers the Clintons — one standard for them and another for everyone else. The former consultant to Bill Clinton strongly rebuffed all the criticisms of the Clintons of the past week, saying there was “nothing in the law” that was wrong with how she handled things. He called it “another made-up scandal.”

Media Matters founder David Brock called Carville’s perspective “invaluable.”

Carville is a former contributor to CNN, but Jeff Zucker cut him loose when he came on board, hence Carville’s jump to FNC.
