Well, that didn't last very long — Karl Rove will be back on Fox News next week.
Rove, who was reportedly benched from the cable network, has two upcoming media appearances listed on his website: He’ll be on Fox News’s “Special Report with Bret Baier” Dec. 10 at 6 p.m., and on Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.” Dec. 13 at 9:20 a.m.
New York’s Gabe Sherman reported earlier this week that Fox News president Roger Ailes told staff to keep those faces associated with the election — namely, Rove and Dick Morris — off the air for a while. According to his report, producers were ordered to get permission before booking either pundit.
Fox News has not responded to a request for comment.
Ailes and Rove probably cooked up their very public benching of Rove to show that Ailes and Murdoch actually had minds independent from the Republican Party, as if ANYONE could ever have fallen for that one. When they realized that they had fooled no one, they dropped the pretense, decided the charade was over, and it was back to business as usual at Fox Noise.
