Report: Fox News reduces Rove's role (Dick Morris, too)
Published: Dec. 4, 2012 at 7:48 PM

NEW YORK, Dec. 4 (UPI) -- <snip>

A representative for Fox News confirmed the cable channel is changing its customary booking practices, and the magazine said multiple sources confirmed Ailes has directed that faces associated with Fox's election coverage -- including Rove and pundit Dick Morris -- be given less air time.

Fox News Senior Vice President of Programming Bill Shine issued an order requiring producers and bookers not to book appearances by Rove or Morris with getting permission, the report said.

The magazine's sources said Ailes was angered on election night when Rove pushed back on the air at Fox's call of Ohio for Obama. A representative for Ailes said there is no rift between Ailes and Rove and the two plan to meet this week, New York reported.

Rove and Fox drew criticism from liberals and media ethicists during the campaign, when Rove appeared on Fox as an analyst, often without disclosing his role as a Republicans fundraiser and campaign consultant.

Morris is routinely subjected to ridicule on left-wing blogs for making political predictions that turn out to be wrong -- and the magazine report said Morris is even ridiculed within Fox News itself.

Armey out at freedomworks; Rove and Morris facing reduced roles at Fox. Wonder if their replacements will be better than they are, or worse?

1. The right (Fox "News") is moving into stealth mode.
They are simply trying to more strictly control their message. Despite massive spending leading up to the election they still lost the message wars. They recognize their image is in the tank. This is the start of their attempt to make their propaganda more palatable to those of us that live in the real world. We will see this manifested as they moderate their language about illegal immigration, women and other issues.
