Sarah Palin will no longer be a paid contributor to Fox News. The former Alaska governor and the network have parted ways, a source close to Palin told ABC News. The same source said it was her decision to leave the network and that Fox offered her an opportunity to renew her contract. Fox News did not immediately return ABC News´ request for comment, but Fox News Executive Vice President Bill Shine told The New York Times in a statement, "We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Gov. Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors."
“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.”
Fox, including Greta, haven´t called on her very much in the last 6-9 months. I suspect there were restrictions in actions that she could take while under contract to Fox as a "contributor". And it is not necessarily a plus to be tied to any network. This frees her to act as she wishes.
#19, Sarah makes most so-called GOP leaders look like the little kiddies when it comes to standing up for her country. Wonderful decision, Sarah. The former Governor can easily pick and choose what she does and she did!
Hard to think she was muzzled about anything. Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter and the one who sits in for O´Reilly, (can´t think of her name right now), and others certainly aren´t muzzled and I doubt she was either.
I know for a fact they cancelled some of her appearances during the conventions. FOX muzzled E.D. Hill when she asked what the heck the fistbump thing was during the 2008 elections - she got demoted, then fired.
FOX muzzled Michelle Malkin when she used to fill in for O´Reilly and said something they didn´t like. Now Laura Ingraham is there.
Meanwhile Jemmu, Kristin, Beckel, Colmes, Juan and now Dennis can tell any lies they want so Fox can falsely claim to be ´fair and balanced´. There are truths and there are lies and they do not deserve equal time, FOX!
A FOX News aside note: During the week, before FOX and Friends at 0600, the network now has on two leggy blonds in the shortest skirts I´ve ever seen...and not sitting behind a desk. On the one hand, that´s fine and good--very uplifting; but on the other hand, it does seem a bit (what´s the word?) Cheap? Tawdry? Low Class (that´s two words!).
We look forward to whatever Sarah has in mind for her future, as is her Right in the USA. She is a cheery All-American patriot who has so much to offer this country´s goals of Life, Liberty & Justice for ALL, so we hope to hear more of her wisdom regarding living & thriving in the USA again very soon.
With amazing good cheer & grace, the entire Palin Family has endured many bogus barbs by the vile statists who have stalked her mercilessly for years and who still don´t understand that CHARACTER COUNTS and so Palin is the victor.
I noticed that Palin´s appearances on Fox dropped sharply after O´Reilly conducted a telephone interview of her and she wouldn´t let him interrupt her and tell her what she was saying. She talked right over him, saying the communication between the studio and her home was bad and she couldn´t tell what was being said. I thought she was terrific and I was cheering her on from my Living Room.
She is, to my knowledge (which is limited because I don´t watch Fox much any more), the only person who managed to control an interview with O´Reilly....which probably led to her lack of subsequent appearances on Fox.
I won´t criticize Fox; They are trying to stay on the air. I´m hoping for a 3rd party or a cessation. The Heritage Foundation could organize it... and banished patriots could rise again... Palin, Cain, West & more.
My family has always been staunch FOX supporters until the Newtown shooting. This event was so obviously a hoax perpetrated by Obama and the media to manipulate us into giving up our arms. Not only did FOX fail to expose the lie, they fed into the lie...so much so that I´m sure they were involved as well. FOX is now considered by us as the MSM. Thank God for Ldotters and Breitbart!
#28, you can thank the DNC, the leftist operatives and their army of lawyers for creating the situation that made it impossible for any Alaska state business to get done and tying up all their resources with excessive frivolous inquiries and lawsuits (all of which were thrown out). That is why she resigned--for the good of the state. Still, she accomplished more in her short tenure than most Governors do in two terms!
I wonder if 19 thinks the Obamas have impeccable etiquette, class and gravitas...? (cough, cough)
Radio host Rush Limbaugh accused President Obama on Friday of trying to do “everything and anything he can to link himself to” Nelson Mandela after the former South African president’s death. “Now, forgive me, but if you are a low-information voter and you’re watching the CBS Evening News last night, you would come away with the impression that the important thing about Nelson Mandela’s death was that he had looked up Barack Obama when he came to town and had a picture of Obama when he died,” Mr. Limbaugh said on his show Friday. “Classic, folks. Absolutely classic — and the
THE DREAM OF owning a winery is one that many may harbor but few are actually able to fulfill. The expense is considerable and the odds of success are incredibly long. Yet the list of actors and athletes, financiers and film directors who aspire to see their name on a label simply goes on and on. (Snip)Even though Manuel Pires was born in Portugal´s Douro Valley wine region, he aspired to own a winery in Napa Valley from his very first visit, many years ago. Why not in the Douro? "Because I am an American," replied Mr. Pires, whose family
A Wal-Mart worker died early Friday after an "out-of-control" mob of frenzied shoppers smashed through the Long Island store´s front doors and trampled him, police said. The Black Friday stampede plunged the Valley Stream outlet into chaos, knocking several employees to the ground and sending others scurrying atop vending machines to avoid the horde. When the madness ended, 34-year-old Jdimytai Damour was dead and four shoppers, including a woman eight months pregnant, were injured.
Vice President Biden promoted local economic development Thursday, and also weighed in on the Senate dispute over filibuster. (Snip)Biden, a Delaware native, visited the new Capriotti´s outpost in downtown Washington, D.C., for a takeout order to be consumed during lunch with Obama at the White House. The vice president paid $56.25 cash for his order. Republicans quickly pointed out that Biden opposed filibuster changes back when Democrats were a minority in the Senate.
Senate Democrats bowled over Republicans on Thursday to win approval for a highly controversial rule change which would limit the GOP´s ability to block nominees. Majority Leader Harry Reid, moving quickly following days of speculation, used the so-called "nuclear option" to pass the change. Typically, major changes like this take 67 votes, but he did it with just a simple majority.(Snip) The late Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., said in 2010 that changing the rules would "destroy the uniqueness of this institution." "In the hands of a tyrannical majority and leadership, that kind of emasculation of the cloture rule would mean that minority
SARASOTA, Fla. — Sarasota police say the husband of former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris was found dead of an apparent suicide at the couple’s home. Police spokeswoman Genevieve Judge said Tuesday that Harris’ husband, Anders Ebbeson, committed suicide. Officers were called to the home between 7:30 and 8 a.m. Tuesday. During a news conference at the police station, Pastor William Hild of Sarasota First Baptist Church confirmed that Ebbers had taken his own life. Ebbers was a Swedish businessman. Hild, the family’s pastor, says Ebbers suffered from health issues in recent years.
Golf’s governing bodies eliminated penalties for violations detectable only through video evidence such as one that cost Tiger Woods two strokes in a PGA Tour playoff event this year. The rule change, one of several announced today, follows cases where players had been penalized for an infraction only seen when reviewing high-definition replay, often after a television viewer alerted officials. The groups delayed a decision until 2016 regarding the appropriate penalty for instances when a player turns in an incorrect scorecard when unaware that a penalty had occurred. This allows television viewers and others to continue to call in potential penalties they
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there.

A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
