Former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren pledged Monday that she will remain "fair and balanced" on her new show on MSNBC.
"To steal a phrase you may have heard before, I consider it fair and balanced,” Van Susteren said during an interview on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
“The show is going to be about facts," she added.
Mediaite describes the phrase “fair and balanced” as a “tagline of sorts for Fox News programming.”

"I'm going to ask questions and how the chips fall they may fall,” Van Susteren added of her new program. “But, I'm hoping to also do some unfinished business — stories that I've started that I've never been able to finish."
Asked about her transition from Fox News to MSNBC, Van Susteren said that the strangest part is that the two networks broadcast from the same building in Washington, D.C., and she just has to choose a different floor on the elevator.
Van Susteren left Fox in September. She previously told Rachel Maddow that she hopes her former Fox viewers will “give me a chance” in her new role.
“I think that the MSNBC audience is going to like me. I hope the Fox audience comes over here,” she said, adding that she’ll give both parties “a fair shake.”
According to TVNewser, Van Susteren's Fox show "On the Record" spent 35 consecutive months as "the most-watched cable news show in the 7 p.m. timeslot." Her new show "For The Record" will replace a rebroadcast of Bloomberg's "With All Due Respect," which ended in December. According to CNN, the show was often MSNBC's "most-watched or second-most watched hour in daytime."
