Fox News loses Sarah Palin, gains a Democrat

Sarah Palin wavesAfter three years working as a paid contributor on Fox News, former Governor Sarah Palin will not renew her contract, according to an article in Real Clear Politics.

“We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Governor Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors,” said Fox’s Executive Vice President of Programming Bill Shine in a statement to the New York Times.

RCP reported signs of a “rocky” relationship between Palin and Fox News appeared when Fox cancelled all of Palin’s interviews on the last day of the Republican National Convention in August. Palin posted on her Facebook page:

I’m sorry Fox cancelled all my scheduled interviews tonight because I sure wanted to take the opportunity on the air to highlight Senator John McCain’s positive contributions to America, to honor him, and to reflect on what a biased media unfairly put him through four years ago tonight. Granted, our honored and esteemed war hero has gone through much more than the liberal media can ever do to him in their efforts to harm this patriot. I look forward to hearing his words to his fellow Americans tonight more than any of the other convention speeches. God bless John McCain.

“[Palin] remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion,” according to a source, RCP said. But the source “declined to say whether Palin would pursue a television contract with another news network, such as CNN.”

Earlier reports said we’ll still see Karl Rove, at least through the 2016 presidential election, but Fox has added a Democrat. O’Dwyer’s reported Fox “signed former congressman and presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich to be contributor to the network.”

    I'm done with Fox — I want to punch the screen when Juan Williams blathers on & on … Kucinich will only aggravate my pre-ulcer condition and cause me to have to buy a new TV. Game over with FOX media!

      I agree with KB COOK…. FOX IS FASTLY BECOMING IRRELEVANT. I used to watch them religiously. Now they want to be all things to all people…… IF YOU DON'T STAND FOR SOMETHING YOU WILL FALL FOR ANYTHING…. BYE BYE FOX………HSN AND QVC are a better watch when C-Span fails also… Sorry to see Sarah go….

    I expect to see Sarah Palin elected to the Senate either in 2014 or 2016. May God continue to bless her and the Palin Family. :-)

  • Dale Mack

    Here we go. Fox is following everyone else to be mainstream and not offend anyone. I'm not a huge fan of Sarah Palin but I would much rather hear her than another liberal. Fox needs good competition. I'm so over O Rielly who wants to preach his Catholicism and Brit Hume and his woe is us attitude and The Five and Fox and Friends. The real problem with Fox is when there's not a campaign going on it turns into church.

  • Hope Lambert

    Since a Prince from the Middle East is co-owner with Murddox . the message/news nows leans more to the left then of any time since I've watched Fox. It is not what it use to be…VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE QUALITY OF REPORTING of the news.. LOOKING TO OTHER SOURCES ON THE NET FOR REAL NEWS.

    • Jan

      Right, The Net offers TRUE NEWS??? LMAO… The best thing is to verify what you hear or read by MORE THAN ONE SOURCE!

  • Dawn

    They have to pander to advertisers. Time to hit The Drudge Report or Blaze TV

  • Linda Johnson

    Hmmmmm…. maybe times are changing in media and Allen West's New Generation is in the forefront.

  • gotta laff

    Even though I hate to listen to liberal drivel, the news is supposed to be non-biased not the voice of one side or the other. That is where the rest of the media has lost their credibility. Don't insist that Fox destroy their credibility just to be the voice of the other point of view.
