Sarah Palin Out at Fox
ABC News, by Shushannah Walshe

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 1/25/2013 6:18:15 PM

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."

Comments:
Was she really there all that much?

Article says the story broke here:

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2013/01/25/sarah_palin_parts_ways_with_fox_news_116807.html

From that article:

“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.”

Imagine Hume suggesting that Kerry might prove to be an outstanding SOS.

Fox has disappointed me with the way they muzzled Sarah Palin. I hope she will be unfettered now, but I fear she will not have a venue to voice our views as she once did so well.

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.

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!).

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.

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)

RAMALLAH, West Bank — Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas only faces bad options, from his perspective, as he heads into a White House meeting Monday with President Barack Obama. He could accept a U.S.-proposed framework for an Israeli-Palestinian partition deal, he could reject it or he could agree to extend negotiations. Here´s a look at what´s ahead. WHAT DO THE PALESTINIANS EXPECT TO BE IN THE FRAMEWORK? U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry hasn´t presented a written proposal, but Abbas aides say they expect it to contain the following. It would endorse the Palestinian position that the border between Israel and a future Palestine would be based on Israel's 1967 frontier,

The Oakland Raiders´ offseason went from curious, probably disappointing, to a flat out debacle. Offensive lineman Rodger Saffold, the team´s big free-agent acquisition at $42.5 million, failed his physical and his contract was voided.

The Rams, who were Saffold´s team his first four years, had no such concerns (there are no set standards for NFL physicals) and almost immediately after the Raiders´ announcement agreed with Saffold on a five-year deal.

MEXICO CITY – Mexico´s government confirmed late Sunday that the leader of the Knights Templar Cartel was killed in an early-morning shootout with troops despite being declared dead by authorities in 2010. Tomas Zeron, head of the criminal investigation unit for the federal Attorney General´s Office, said the identity of Nazario Moreno Gonzalez had been confirmed 100 percent by fingerprints, but added that tests would continue. Moreno´s death was one of the more bizarre twists in Mexico´s assault on drug cartels, in which two others of the country´s most powerful capos have been captured in the last year without a shot fired.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

Please, try not to let what I’m about to tell you destroy your faith in the integrity of the national Democratic Party. Right now, a crime wave is sweeping the nation, and everyone in this out-of-control mob has a D after their names, even if most of the media are loath to report it. If you are a low-information voter, a Globe subscriber, say, you have been told endlessly that the root of all evil in American politics is the Tea Party, better known in your moonbat media as “teabaggers.” Oddly, however, the hacks rounded up over the last few days, well,

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay. He got off on the wrong foot by introducing Stefano

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the

President Obama said Pope Francis did not raise Obamacare “in detail” when they met on Thursday, but that in a separate meeting with the Vatican’s secretary of state “we discussed briefly the issue of making sure that conscience and religious freedom was observed in the context of applying the law.” At a joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Obama also acknowledged that he differs with the Vatican’s stance on some issues, but added that he “heartily” agrees with most of its positions. During his nearly hour-long papal audience, Obama said Pope Francis “actually did not touch in
