So why is Fox cancelling her interviews?

I have no idea. And neither does anybody else on this thread. I do enjoy wild speculation sometimes, I must admit.

She would be a nobody governor of a small state if it were not for McCain.

Actually she was the most popular governor in America, perhaps in history, she was already gaining fame in conservative circles as a reformer, a giant killer, a highly skilled politician, that could fight and win.

Palin consistently had approval in the 80s and reached 93%, Mitt Romney left office with 34%.

I think it has to do with her complaining about the rules changes at the convention.

Exactly.

Gov. Palin is a perceived threat to the
Emperor of RINOs and DEATH PANELS.

Yep, that’s what I think. Palin dared to speak up for the conservative grassroots against the rules changes yesterday, so now she’s being ‘slapped down’ by the ruling-class GOP-establishment.

She did take a pretty serious shot at the Romney team on Mark Levin’s show and if Romney has any sway with Fox, they put the kibosh on her tonight. They want this about Ryan and don’t want Sarah anywhere near.

I don’t really believe this had anything to do with McCain. I have been happy to not hear his name.

That all said, I still love her.

I hope that’s not true, because if it is, it will be found out and Fox will be finished with the “Fair and Balanced” schtick: They’d have been caught interfering with a Party’s governing process.

I agree I don’t think it had anything to do with McCain.

Rather, she was using McCain as a way to reply as to what she’d like to talk about tonight.

I hear you but she feels differently, as is her right. The story here is the cancellation, not the subject of the cancellation (as we know, Fox News things McLame is great).

Cancellations of “all interviews” means something from the Roger Ailes level, not any individual host or some programming flunky decision. Cancelling a highly-paid Republican former VP candidate commentator on the night of the current VP candidates speech is a Big F’n Deal.

Of course its true.

Chris Wallace is Romney’s Anchor Wife
and every single sentence from him for MONTHS
has been “HOW does this (fill in, eg. Fast&Furious,
Syria, Moslem Brotherhood, ...) relate to Mitt?”.

FOX “News” is so far from “FAIR and BALANCED”
that it truly needs a warning label, instead.

And you think they told Fox to cancel her interviews?

The GOP establishment IS FOX and IS Matt Drudge. They are all on Team Romney and what Romney wants from them, Romney gets. And what Romney wants beyond any shadow of a doubt is the utter and total destruction and annihilation of the power of Tea Party conservatives, Christian conservatives, grass-roots conservatives and any kind of populist movement.

LOL, they certainly haven't been fair-and-balanced ever since the primary when they were solidly behind Team Romney and ended up banning Newt from the channel for life because he put up the strongest fight.

Governor Palin does not owe everything to Senator McCain, she was quite a rising force with a long time political career and an elected Governor, when he chose her for the ticket, that is why he picked her, to help his ticket.

Oh, and welcome to freerepublic.

Sarah has no bigger supporter here than I.

After Romney loses and the party fractures, I will be on her team.

But - she’s been fighting a war with Team Romney for years, and she’s lost this round decisively. It’s too bad, I think I understand why she’s played this the way she has, but if you don’t fight to win, you can’t cry when you lose.

I smell the true creation of a third party coming into a force reminiscent of our forefathers. The similarities between the ass and the elephant are becoming more and more obvious.
I believe Gov.Palin was canceled because of her speaking out about the recent rules dispute. The grand ole party will now shun her from all GOP appearances.

Sarah, you have done great things for the conservative cause, but continuing to tout John McCain as some sort of hero only proves that you are suffering from the political equivalent of battered wife syndrome, hasn’t it occurred to you that the reason the 2008 ticket you were on failed to win, was NOT because of you, but because of McCain and his toadies who started stabbing you in the back from the gitgo?

God love ya, you stand for all the values and beliefs that have made America great, however you have got to recognize that you were set up, left to twist in the wind, and abandoned by those rotten sons o’ bitches.

Wake up gal, McCain was not, is not, and never WILL be your friend. He USED you. At least Romney is fighting, McCain threw the election, especially after he realized that you had damn near won it for him.

Why in the world should John “I’m really a Leftist Dumbocrat” McCain be allowed to speak at the R.N.C.? This has got to be some kind of sad joke. I actually thought Mitt would ask him to be his V.P., that’s how screwed up I think the world is nowadays.

When she still continues to carry water for McCain, it kills her credibility for me in drips and drabs. I was never terribly comfortable with her for some reason to begin with, but anyone flacking for John McCain at this point in history leaves many questions.

I agree 100%. If she feels so strong about her conservative beliefs then McCain should not be on her support list. He used her plain and simple. She needs to open her eyes and realize it and go on.

You know nothing! Sarah was the most popular governor in America and was a rising star in the party.....she would have been a huge figure (no pun) like RINO Christie except she would have been the conservative version without McCain picking her. Although being with McCain she had a run in with advisors Steve Schmdits and Nicole Wallace who’s incompetence hurt her more than anything else

Sarah, Sarah, Sarah... Hasn’t McCain done enough to you, and the rest of us? I wonder if she believes he really had no clue what his “handlers” were doing to her during the campaign. I have problems reconciling her statements on the issues and her love for John McCain - it doesn’t make all that much sense to me... [Unless of course she’s trying to keep her friends close and her enemies closer??? Perhaps kissing up to keep herself in the loop???]

I don’t doubt that she has respect for him, I don’t doubt that she wishes him well on his birthday, but why in the world would she be interviewing and making a big deal about McCain when it’s Paul Ryan’s big night?? Like I said, I’m having trouble reconciling these words and actions...

I think there has to be more to the story, and that it has a lot to do with the producers at FOX news - something’s going on, but none of it makes a lot of sense at this point.

Actually he [McCain] became a war hero, as a POW.

If the little North Vietnamese grunt manning that SAM site on the day McCain was shot down had better aim, America would have been far better off with McCain permanently interred at Arlington National Cemetery.

McCain is a g*dammned turncoat, and any perceived 'heroic' acts he may or may not have performed as a POW have been made irrelevant by his consistent stabbing in the back of OTHER POWs and their families in the years following, not to mention his never ending assault on the Constitution. As a memory refresher, it was our esteemed Founder who properly labeled McCain 'you treasonous bastard' and he was right then, and he's right today.

McCain is nothing but a sack o' traitorous sh*t and everyone knows it except for the fools who buy into that 'hero' crapola. If it wasn't for McCain's Daddy, he would have never been in a pilot's seat except at the local carnival with the 'F-80 Ride' for the kiddies.

Maybe it’s a typo and she really meant that Fox News banned her because she was going to complain about the GOPe’’s rule changes and how they hurt the Tea Party and conservatives. I think that’s what she meant.

Who wanted her to sing the praises of McCain? Certainly, not I. If she was going to spend the night ripping a hole though Obama, that would be keen but a bunch of interviews praising a party traitor is more than I’d care to stomach.

I don’t think it’s the desire for “fame” that drives her decisions. I have no doubt that she feels some sort of gratitude to McCain for choosing her, however if she was really seeking “fame” for its own sake there are MANY other things she could have done at this point that would have made her a boatload of money, and would have made her more “palatable” to liberal women as well as the conservatives who already have respect for her.

John Mccain is someone who sold out his party and the State of Arizona GOP.

John McCain needs to retire, sooner the better.

This is Sarah’s true message. Thank him profusely so he will just GO!

I know she criticized the GOP rules change coup quite extensively last night on the Mark Levin radio show.
She said if it is not Romney, it is definitely his people behind it.


That may very well be the reason.

Good point, bigbob. I was thinking it would be some producers decisions depending upon which show she was going to be on, but the inclusion of the word "all" and multiple interviews does hint at something way bigger than being "bumped" off in an editing decision.
