Crain’s Kira Bindrim writes about Karl Rove joining FNC…
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.”
News Corp.-owned Fox News is the nation’s most-watched news channel.
