Karl Rove to join Fox News as contributor
by Kira Bindrim of Crain's New York Business.com

...The decision to join Fox News could be a move by Mr. Rove to get
back into the public spotlight, particularly after an action for his
memoir took over two months to generate a winning bid. Threshold
Editions, Simon & Schuster’s conservative imprint, won the world
rights to Mr. Rove’s as-yet-untitled memoir in December, but he failed
to win the $3 million advance he was asking.

Mr. Rove has said the book will explore his role in Mr. Bush’s
campaigns and administration, and “shed light on important events
and big controversies, spell out their implications for America and set
the record straight.”

Another Right Wing Rag for Alabama?
by Roger Shuler of Legal Schnauzer

...."Double dipping is a moral issue as far as I'm concerned," Riley
says. "When you appropriate tax payer money to certain entities that
in turn pay your salary, there is a conflict of interest."

To Rominger's credit, he points out that some observers, particularly
Paul Hubbert of the Alabama Education Association, view Riley's
efforts as political gamesmanship. Noting that the governor's
proposals target mostly Democrats, Hubbert calls it an "if you can't
beat them, ban them" approach.
