Word's apparently out that the boss will be on This Week with George Stephanopoulos Sunday, and we've begun to get inquiries as to how this can be. I asked, and Kristol explained:

I'm now a free agent. For the last decade, I've had a series of contracts that committed me exclusively to Fox. It was a great run, and I owe a lot to Chris Wallace, Brit Hume, Bret Baier, and the rest of the gang. I of course remain a huge Fox fan and look forward to continuing to appear there. But now I'll be free to inflict my insights on viewers of the other networks as well. So I'll join George Sunday, will go into battle on Morning Joe early next week, and anticipate making the case over the next weeks and months to more viewers in diverse settings. It should be fun.
