Report: Christine O’Donnell Won’t Be on Fox After All

Christine O’Donnell won’t be appearing on “Fox & Friends” before the holidays, a spokesman tells Mediaite, disputing what the tea party darling said earlier this week.

O’Donnell told Roll Call in a sit-down interview this week that she’d be filling in for Gretchen Carlson on Dec. 23 and 24. The tidbit got a mention in an article about O’Donnell’s new PAC, and was cited by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow last night.

But Mediaite reports today:

[A] Fox News spokesperson confirms to Mediaite that no such guest hosting gig for O’Donnell has been booked, reiterating a similar statement made to Mediaite roughly a month ago:

Now that the election has ended, what’s next? In an exclusive statement to Mediaite a Fox News spokesperson says that the cable newser “has no plans to hire her.”

Fox and the O’Donnell campaign haven’t returned our calls seeking to clarify the situation.
