How to break into the news business

By Christopher B. Daly

Well, here’s one way:

1. Start off with a career in modeling.

2. Become a Republican.

3. Never work as a reporter/editor/photographer.

4. Join FOX News as a highly paid on-air commentator.

That is the path reportedly being pursued by Scott Brown, according to a story in today’s Boston Globe and elsewhere. Now that Brown, the Republican who lost the 2012 race for U.S. Senate to Democrat Elizabeth Warren, is getting out of politics and becoming a big media star, he don’t need to talk to no stinkin’ reporters:

A Fox spokesman confirmed Brown is in talks to appear on the network, which recently announced it is not renewing contracts with big-name political commentators Sarah Palin and Dick Morris. It was unclear, however, what role Brown might have on the network. Though Brown has told several Republicans that he will have a gig on Fox, the spokesman said the talks are not final.

Brown would not comment to the Globe. When reached Wednesday night, he said, “I am right in the middle of dinner,” and hung up the phone.

All in all, Brown appears to be an example of the power of failing upward. Way to go, Scott.
