Palin: Offer to Renew FOX Contract Reportedly Declined

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on January 25, 2013

hannity_sarah2Supporters of Sarah Palin knew that her contract with FOX was set to expire at the end of 2012 but over the last three weeks absolutely nothing was leaked regarding those contract negotiations.  Today, that all changed with breaking news from Real Clear Politics:

 

Sarah Palin Parts Ways With FOX News

After a three-year run as a paid contributor to the nation’s highest-rated cable news channel, Sarah Palin and FOX News have cut ties, according to a source close to the former Alaska governor.

“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.”

The source declined to say whether Palin would pursue a television contract with another news network, such as CNN.

Bill Shine, Executive Vice President at FOX, subsequently issued a statement to the New York Times confirming the news, saying, “We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Governor Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors.”  More

    Sara may have reached the conclusion at Fox she was type-cast and preaching to the choir. And that it might be better to brancn out to another netowrk, or try for other ways to get outside the box many had put her in, to reach new converts, etc. Actually, I think it probably reflects a smart strategy to re-make her image among those who do not know any better, or who have been misled.

    • I, for one, am not shedding one tear over this latest news! Palin is not unfettered by an increasingly RINO network (Fox) and can be just as effective, as she says, without a title – and now, without a commentary position on Fox.

      Stacked up against those has-beens, Rove & Morris, Palin is light years ahead of them and MUCH for interesting & refreshing! She’ll bring an audience wherever she turns up – on TV, radio or in person!

    Fox pushes the GOP Establishment. Karl Rove and Dick Morris via Fox assured conservative Americans that Romney would win the election by a landslide. I did not believe their analysis. I look forward to Palin’s input via other outlets now. She has more knowledge in her little finger than any of the prime time Fox shows ever had.

    • I was more disgusted with their “know-it-all” attitude than their totally off-the-mark election predictions! They’re pompous asses and have become quite predictable and even boring! Fox will find its viewership declining over time if it keeps propping up those losers.

      Meantime, The Five has been surprisingly successful – and a LOT of that is due to Greg Gutfeld – a witty and Conservative
      analyst. But between pompous O’Reilly and [redacted] Shep Smith, Fox is beginning to lose its bite!
