Fox News signs Karl Rove for 4 more years
NEW YORK (AP) - Karl Rove enlivened Fox News Channel's election coverage last year by questioning the network's declaration that Barack Obama had been re-elected. It hasn't affected Fox's desire to keep him on the air.
The network announced Thursday that it had signed Rove to a new contract as a contributor. The deal runs through the 2016 election.
Rove was once President George W. Bush's political right-hand man and the force behind a powerful political action committee that sought to oust Obama. He caused a stir with his election night doubts, which led anchor Megyn Kelly to interview Fox's own election experts on the air to defend their call.
Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes says Rove's detailed knowledge of politics, fundraising and strategy make him an important player in Fox's coverage.
