In a statement, Sanders praised Fox News and said she was “beyond proud” to join the network.
As White House press secretary, Sanders had a tenuous relationship with the press. Under her tenure, the White House effectively eliminated the daily briefing with the press.
It’s not unusual for former White House press secretaries to score gigs at cable news networks. But Sanders has considerably less credibility than previous press secretaries.
Sanders is now the third former top White House communications official to join Fox after exiting the Trump administration.
The revolving door has also worked in the opposite direction.
Bill Shine, the former co-president of Fox News, joined the White House in 2018 in a top communications role. Shine exited the White House earlier this year. Others at the network have also left their jobs at Fox to serve in the Trump administration.
It raises the question: How should former White House officials who misled the public be treated when they seek positions of fame and privilege?
Sanders father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, is also a Fox News personality.
