Fox News, Palin Cutting Ties

Source: Reuters/NYT/AP

NEW YORK (AP) ó Sarah Palin is out as a Fox News Channel contributor.

The network said Friday that it is parting ways with the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate and former Alaska governor.

Bill Shine, executive vice president at Fox News, said the network has enjoyed its association with Palin and wishes her the best.

our voice will be heard and we will take our message of strong American conservative ideals to other places where we will move on and have our voices heard and have a good run and bring the message of our conservative ideals..."

50. last I read Sarah earned ~ 20 million as a political leech. that should be enough for the witch.

Think about it, every single smalltime useless to america politican leeches,fleeces several million each from tax free 'donations' ,taxpayers state and federal money.

No wonder some states are broke, America has a federal budget problem and legit charities are failing.

Thousands of political terrorist Vampires like old Sarah, suck America dry.

Then I thought, 'yeah, I can see that. Mooselini leading a team of big-haired FAUX talking heads on a commando raid into the parking lot at DNC Headquarters - knives held between their teeth -to slash everyone's tires.'

54. for a good long time, her outlays were higher than her income.

she sported a major league entourage, security, hangers-on, publicists and PR hacks that was more in line with sports and rock stars. as she grew shorter on funds, she began cutting back on the staff. At one time, she had a crowd of 20+ with her at all times.

I doubt she supports any more than one or two now.

24. I could almost feel sorry for her....

I said almost. She had herself blessed by a witch-hunter, Bishop Muthee. In remembrance of the 1000s of innocent women who were burned by the church, I wish I was actually a witch so I could make her downfall even more painful.

As it is, I hope Sarah can only find work in German porn and stripper bars on two lane highways, 20 miles out of town.

there is an afterlife for passe political hacks released from Fox for being too dumb and crazy. I'm sure they are keeping a seat warm for Bachmann (who I think will bypass Fox, I mean Fox will pass on her.. .maybe).

34. This is bad news if it means she'll run for the Senate.

She doesn't want to be irrelevant. She wants to be in the spotlight. The Faux News gig gave her that while paying better than any public office.

If she can't find anything else that's reasonably lucrative, she may run for the Senate, if only to have a platform again. She would be a favorite defeat Mark Begich, the Democratic incumbent who's up for re-election next year.

You know, like freedom of speech n stuff.

No wait! It's 4:10 in the morning and I just woke up. I'm coming out of the fog of incoherence. Damn! I can't use a right wing talking point against a right winger TV network.

Never mind.

Well good luck Sarah. You still have your million dollar reality TV show and lucrative book deal...or is it $100,000 show and comic book? $100 maybe and a pamphlet? Is the show still on? God! Sorry about your career.

41. I look at this the other way, Sarah doesn't fit in their 2016 plans, but Dennis Kucinich does

 

Fox couldn't control her, she is off message for them

whereas, I bet in the end, Fox does better with Karl Rove and Dennis Kucinich in putting down Democratic candidates and democratic message.
Wouldn't suprise me if next Fox hired Ralph Nader and Ross Perot and Ron Paul and Joe Lieberman.

Last thing Fox wants is a loose cannon.
Everything they do is scripted for a reason.

so while its fun I guess to put Sarah down, she doesn't fit into their 2016 plans, but Dennis Kucinich does.

Think about it.

loose lips sink ships.
Having Kucinich fits right in with their strategy in sinking Democratic ships

43. That was obvious as soon as Obama won reelection

FOX hired the nitwit for one reason only....to defeat Obama in 2012 either directly or indirectly and she failed.

She used her airtime to jerk both the network and her following around with her perpetual teases about running in 2012. Her standing was so diminished by the time she chose not to run that the GOP and Romney team didn't even want her up front and center in the 2012 campaign. And she supported nut jobs that if elected showed they had no interest in governing.

She's part of the GOP's problem and I'm sure FOX gave her a contract so insulting they knew she would refuse it.

That seems to be the current thinking. They (like Jindal) think the crazies in the party are costing them elections (which is true). Problem is the crazies won't stay silent and many of the most crazy one's have tv and radio shows. This move will be symbolic.

58. Actual response from Free Republic: "Not surprised. Fox News is pretty much has become center-left."

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2981929/posts

Also: "Good for her. I donít watch them anymore. Nothing there left to watch."

"Good. She is better than FOX"

"I havenít watched Fox since 2008 or by mistake in a hotel room here and there while on the road. Itís all a joke now in terms of the LSM. FR and Rush are pretty much all I need." (Wow, to actually think people see Rush Limbaugh as a better source than Fox Boobs????)

"Well....good for her. She probably sees Fox careening to the left like we all do."
