Mike Huckabee talks about his Fox News show in the Wall Street Journal today, and specifically about his affinity for liberal guests.
“What I want to try and do is have people on who are 180 degrees from me,” he tells Laura Meckler. “I take the word ‘guest’ and ‘host’ very seriously. Being host implies a certain level of civility and hospitality.”
So far the former Republican Presidential candidate has welcomed Bill Maher, Oliver Stone and Richard Dreyfuss to his weekend program.
As for what he thinks about his new colleague Bill O’Reilly: “I’m not going to criticize anyone from my network. I like getting paid.”
