Roseanne Barr: I Want A Show On Fox News

Roseanne Barr wants a show on Fox News, she revealed in a new interview published on Wednesday.

Barr recently spoke to the New York Observer's Politicker about her bid for the presidency. The actress is seeking the Green Party's nomination. She also told the site that another potential job for her would be hosting a show on Fox News.

Barr admitted that "some of the people like Sean Hannity and stuff, the things they attack are just ridiculous," but defended their "right to freedom of speech." She said that she believes the network tries to live up to its slogan of "Fair and Balanced," and has been "fair and nice" to her.

"I told Fox I'd sure like to have a show on there, because the people who watch Fox News are people like me also," Barr explained. "So, it would be good to be really fair and balanced and have a nice left point of view on there.”

The prospect isn't so far off, according to Barr. She said that the network once offered her a show, but that the timing was wrong.

“They do talk to me about it … We’ve had beers and laughed about it and stuff. Offers have been made and I just didn’t get on with it because I was trying to just do that sitcom," Barr said. “It could happen. Stranger things have happened. It could happen definitely."
