Conservative writer and TV commentator Bill Kristol is joining The New York Times. Kristol will write a weekly column for the Op-Ed page while continuing as editor of The Weekly Standard. In its story about the hire, The Times writes, Kristol “has been a fierce critic of The Times. In 2006, he said that the government should consider prosecuting The Times for disclosing a secret government program to track international banking transactions.”

Kristol will also continue his appearances on Fox News Channel. He was a regular panelist on ABC’s This Week in the late 1990’s.
