Greta Van Susteren Borrows a Familiar Phrase to Describe Her New Show on MSNBC

Greta Van Susteren begins the newest chapter in her long cable news career tonight with the debut of For The Record at 6 p.m. EST on MSNBC, after over fourteen years at cable giant Fox News. Van Susteren told her longtime pal and new colleague Rachel Maddow last week that she hopes to bring in many of her former viewers over from Fox, and the lines drawn between Fox News and MSNBC didn’t end there.

During an interview on Morning Joe Monday morning, the seasoned Van Susteren described her new cable effort with familiar lingo. “I’m genuinely curious — what are you going to be doing?” asked Joe Scarborough.

Van Susteren revealed that on her first episode she’ll be sitting down with Valerie Jarrett and Reince Priebus. “And, to steal a phrase you may have heard before, I consider it fair and balanced.”

Fair and balanced is, of course, the tagline of sorts for Fox News programming. “It’s going to be about facts,” she continued telling Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. “I’m gonna go out and ask questions, and how the chips fall they may fall.”

Watch the full clip of Van Susteren’s appearance on Morning Joe above, and tune in to MSNBC Monday evening at 6 p.m. EST for the debut of For The Record.
