Media Matters for America reports that Fox News has now hired Roger Stone as a contributor. Who is Roger Stone? He’s a Nixon-era political “dirty trickster” who thinks misogyny is the best way to attack Hillary Clinton. Think I’m kidding? I’m not.
Fox News states twice on its website that Republican political strategist Roger Stone is now a “Fox News contributor,” a title given to those with network contracts. Stone is a “professional dirty trickster” who once formed an anti-Hillary Clinton group with the acronym “C.U.N.T.” after he tried “to come up with words for B.I.T.C.H. and just couldn’t do it.”…
The conservative Weekly Standard has described Stone as a “professional dirty trickster and high priest of political hijinks.” In a 2012 profile, New York magazine’s Gabriel Sherman wrote that “Stone thinks politics has gotten a lot less interesting since those Nixon days. For one, there are ‘fewer and fewer’ dirty tricks.”
Shameless smears are the currency of Stone’s career:
Established Anti-Hillary Clinton Group C.U.N.T. In 2008, Stone established the anti-Hillary Clinton group Citizens United Not Timid, which also went by the acronym C.U.N.T. The group claimed to “educate the American public about what Hillary Clinton really is” and sold shirts emphasizing the acronym. Stone explained of the group’s name: “The truth is, we sat around for hours trying to come up with words for B.I.T.C.H. and just couldn’t do it.” Below is the logo of the now-defunct group:

Stay classy, Fox News. Stay classy.
