Fox-ifi­ca­tion Part 2

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

CNN con­tin­ues to troll the Bush White House for tal­ent.

Frances Fra­gos Townsend, who re­cently stepped down as Pres­i­dent Bush’s chief anti-ter­ror­ism and home­land se­cu­rity ad­viser, is join­ing the net­work as an­a­lyst for na­tional se­cu­rity is­sues.

She’s got two decades in intelligence and crim­i­nal jus­tice, chair­ing the Home­land Se­cu­rity Coun­cil, serv­ing as deputy na­tional se­cu­rity ad­viser and work­ing with the U.S. Coast Guard and the Jus­tice De­part­ment for both the Bush and Clin­ton ad­min­is­tra­tions.

“This is a crit­i­cal time for our coun­try,” Mrs. Townsend said, who is anx­ious to tell her new­found global au­di­ence about the in­sid­i­ous threat of ter­ror­ism.

“She adds an im­por­tant di­men­sion to CNN’s cov­er­age of one of the cen­tral ques­tions in the pres­i­den­tial elec­tion: How safe are we?” said CNN Pres­i­dent Jonathan Klein.

Mrs. Townsend joins Tony Snow, for­mer white House spokesman and long­time Fox News host, who went to CNN last month as a po­lit­i­cal com­men­ta­tor.
