Bad News and Good News

Here's he really sad Evan Bayh news:
FOX News has signed former United States Senator Evan Bayh (D-IN) as a contributor, announced Michael Clemente, Senior Vice President of News Editorial for the network. Bayh will offer commentary and analysis across all FOX News platforms and will participate in programming leading up to the 2012 Presidential elections.
It really makes me sick in my stomach to read something like that. I realize that he made numerous FOX News appearances during his career in the United States Senate but that's normal for elected officials. However, as a retired senator, a Democratic one no less, it's disgusting to read.

Making up for that is this one about former CNN commentator Larry King:
Larry King is in conversations for a contributor gig on Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Make that "conversation," as there has been only one of them. Sources at Comedy Central confirm a New York Post report that the veteran talk-show host has been approached with the idea. Talks could go either way, but if they lead to a deal, King will be an occasional contributor to the satirical newscast along the lines of Lewis Black, Larry Wilmore and John Hodgman.
This could be interesting. I remember former CBS News anchor Dan Rather contributed to election night coverage a few years back.
