NEW YORK (AP) — Fox News Channel says it has hired Alveda King, a niece of the late civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., as a commentator for the network.

Alveda King, director of African-American Outreach at Priests for Life, is an anti-abortion activist who has clashed politically with some of her uncle’s former associates. She spoke at a 2010 rally in Washington organized by conservative commentator Glenn Beck.

She has said she has been a Democrat and Republican, but now considers herself a Christian.

“Her passion and mission for social change will be a valuable contribution to our network,” said Roger Ailes, chairman and CEO of Fox News, on Friday.

  1. That’s a good move on her part FOX has the largest cable news audience
    so she can speak to a great many people as well as several AA news contributors

    Fox news ( and the entire right wing for that matter) will always and forever be searching for a racial sedative to help them sleep at night.
