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 lived in Cleveland when Kucinich was Mayor. The Lake caught fire ( i am not even kidding) and the city defaulted on a bond payment. Maybe Kucinich can talk about what his tenure as Mayor did for Cleveland…or now that he is the congressman from Cuyahoga County.

    I really hope FOX reaches out to Allen West to get some "fair and balanced" opinions from a conservative.

    FOX NEWS dropped all pretenses at being fair and balanced and at being an alternative news outlet for conservative. Now they are just another liberal moutth piece.

    Oh great, Kucinich, the man who single-handedly bankrupt Cleveland. Geeze Louise, what the heck is up with Fox! I'll stick with The Blaze.

    I stopped watching Fox long ago. The writing is on the wall folks! They aim to take control of our live and freedoms as Americans so they can push the UN agenda 21. They cannot do that if there are "rogue" news networks out there telling the other side. Fox has been slowly replacing conservativves with liberals right before our noses. Fox has simply decided not to fight but to go along with the flow. It is all money and self preservation!

    Is Fox selling out too? Are the Republicans afraid of the Liberals? I don't understand why Fox would do this and I agree about Juan Williams, Obama could take a dump in public and Juan would defend his actions, it's sickening to see that, I thought he was an intelligent person but guess he just covers his ignorance up very well until he opens his mouth…I watch Fox because it seems the only place I can hear the truth and I realize it has to be balanced by having some Democrats but adding more? Guess time will tell!
