Fox cuts ties to commentator Dick Morris

Source: AP

NEW YORK (AP) Political commentator Dick Morris' prediction of a huge landslide for Mitt Romney didn't pan out. And now he's lost his job at Fox News Channel.

Network spokeswoman Dana Klinghoffer said Tuesday that Fox wasn't renewing its contract with Morris, who was steadfast throughout the campaign in his prediction of a big Romney win over President Barack Obama. He has made few appearances on Fox since the election.

Morris had also been criticized for accepting paid advertisements on his website from candidates that he discussed on the air at Fox.

17. What's Fox News and who's Dick Morris?

Isn't that the GWB state run media outlet with Karl Rove in charge? Can't watch it. Not on TV, b/c I've deleted those channels. And not on the Internets, b/c I make a concerted effort to avoid listen/watching pointless idiotic arguing.

May they go down in flames!

28. Accepting Paid Ads From Candidates He Reported on Should Have Gotten him Fired

That's such a clear conflict of interest and violation of the rules of journalism - the not necessarily written down rules but commonly understood ones by real journalists. Oh, wait. Real journalists. Sorry I forgot for a minute we're talking FAUX NOOZ here.

30. what was he supposed to say, that Romney was going to have his ass thoroughly kicked?

 

along with the rest of the GOP? he's a propagandist, not a commentator. he influences events, he doesn't comment on them.

37. Of course he should have said Romney was going to win, his mistake in my view

was saying it would be a landslide. That doesn't bring the lazy ones into the polls, it gives them a reason to stay home.

I don't think that's what got him canned though. Fox news knows people just laugh at him because his mouth works so funny. Well that and the toe sucking. They didn't fire him for being wrong, if that were true, William Kristol would never work again.

42. Welcome to DU, bubbayugga!

Good to have you with us. Propaganda is the watch word with Pox Noise until they adopt a serious change of heart and mind. Which will be never, considering these people. Minds brainwashed, "hearts" - if they even have hearts, they're cold and hard and small like BBs.

That was one of my mom's favorite sayings - when she referred to a selfish or heartless or cold or cheapskate person: "they've got a heart like a BB."

I'm just SO gratified that so many people actually recognize this! And more all the time.

32. Its the end of an era

Im sad.

I was so nervous back in Sept and Oct that I couldn't watch fox for more than a few minutes.

If I could go back in time knowing what I know now I would go back and watch them every day spew their nonsense. Especially that hack little dick morris.

I really didn't think anyone could go lower than Fox.

I wonder, is he too low now to hear his Nemesis Hillary Clinton laughing as she soars on the highest approval rating ever? I hope not.

40. I'd like to see DU drop Faux as well.

In other words no posting "news" stories with Faux news as a link. What good does it do us to have posters legitimizing faux by using them as a source? If they are truly our adversary, which they are, we need not cater to them and give them the time of day. We need to banish them to the dustbin of history.
