Parting ways: Fox News And Sarah Palin just broke up

Sarah Palin and Fox News have just parted ways. Sarah is officially out.  The divisive former vice presidential candidate and half-term Governor of Alaska, is up for grabs, after calling any media that disagreed with her the “lamestream media,” there likely won’t be any takers.  The real reasoning behind her departure may never be clear, but here’s two takes on it.









New York Times reports:

Yes, Ms. Palin’s contract with Fox News has ended, and no, it is not being renewed. A Fox spokeswoman confirmed Friday that Fox had parted ways with the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee, effectively reducing her exposure to the channel’s millions of loyal viewers.

It was unclear whether the parting was Ms. Palin’s choice. Bill Shine, an executive vice president at Fox, said in a statement, “We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Governor Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors.”

Real Clear Politics reports:

 “It’s my understanding that Gov. Palin was offered a contract by FOX, and she decided not to renew the arrangement,” the source close to Palin told RCP. “She remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion.”

After the Presidential election, Fox News was reportedly repackaging their brand. With Palin’s popularity about as equal to that of the mosquito,  it’s a safe assumption to think she got the boot. You betcha’!

    I understand the networks are running out of money and talking heads is cheap to do, but I value their content much more when they go out and talk to people who actually do something in the real world, particularly outside DC. Guesswokk aobut the horse race doesn’t contribute much.

    This is Fox, the home of lots of naughty old men with pent-up rage. As soon as Sarah began to lose her looks (and she went downhill fairly fast) she was on thin ice. It certainly had nothing to do with her insanity. Bachmann set such a low standard on that qualification that unless you appeared wearing a straight-jacket and were frothing at the mouth, you could be a Fox News contributor.
    Actually the way they treated her during the Republican Convention- by essentially pretending she never existed- was the handwriting on the wall.
    I am just hoping she is planning to write a tell-all book about her experiences at Fox. How can we encourage her? I mean, I am sure she was “victimized” there .. too.

      And I was so thrilled that Shelley decided to run for POTUS…..I imagined a very quick demise for the GOP after a debacle involving a Palin/Bachmann ticket taking the wheel of the ship of state.
      No matter. The GOP seems to be committing seppuku rather adroitly, judging from the latest frothings.

    Sarah Palin was yesterday’s RW idiot’s barbie doll to shore up the de-base of Glenn Beck’s fringed willfully ignorant ideologues. When Obama won a 2nd term, she and Rove were no longer needed..They failed. As far as Palin’s groupies, they are falling like the gnats they have always been- they are pesky getting into everything as they swarm but have a life expectancy of a day

    Why is this brainless invertebrate (my apologies to brainless invertebrates the world over) still addressed as “Governer”? She QUIT two years into her term. She QUIT!
    In truth, I’ll miss the mouth that roars. Her and La Bachmann. And that other, really skinny bleached blonde cretin, whatsername.
