Dean to go on Fox

Dean will be on Fox News -- this weekend if I'm parsing this article correctly.
His first guest is Democratic presidential front-runner Howard Dean, who hasn't appeared on the program in five years.

It wasn't an easy booking, Wallace told the Daily News.

"There was clearly a wariness the part of the Dean campaign about coming on 'Fox News Sunday,'" he said.

"I told Dean's campaign manager, Joe Trippi, that 'We're not going to pull any punches, but you're going to get fair treatment.'"
I don't believe it, but we'll see. At least it isn't the loathsome Hannity or equally loathsome O'Reilly.

I haven't seen Wallace's version of the show, but my impression is also that he's not a shouter like Hannity or O'Reilly, so good for the Dean campaign for picking the least noxious way to go on Fox.

(Why does anybody appear on O'Reilly or Hannity? Please sir, shout at me some more...)
