Skip to comments.REPORT: Fox News Is Taking Karl Rove Off The Air (Over election night meltdown)
Posted on 12/04/2012 4:57:34 PM PST by SeekAndFind
New York's Gabriel Sherman reports that Fox News is scaling back airtime for Republican pundit Karl Rove, in what appears to be a reprimand for Rove's meltdown during the network's live election broadcast.
Sources told Sherman that Fox News chief Roger Ailes has ordered his staff to bench Rove and his fellow GOP pundit Dick Morris, two of the network's most vocal partisan voices whose predictions turned out to be spectacularly wrong. According to Sherman, producers must now get permission before booking Rove or Morris on Fox shows.
The move comes as Fox takes steps to rehab its image in the wake of Republican defeats this November. Rove, in particular, has been widely mocked by members of both parties, both for his onscreen tantrum and for the abysmal performance of his American Crossroads super PAC.

At least he didn’t say anti-NRA stuff, right?
It won’t be long and they will be like the rest of them.
How was Rove supposed to know that the commie ‘RATS would take their voter fraud to such a massive level? It’s not Rove’s fault.
I still won’t watch FOX.
but they keep Sally Khon or Kohn on, a homosexual activist, a media matters ex worker, a soros plant and a big anti war, women who pretends to be a guy.
How about FOX doing investigative work into the msasive voter fraud, no poll or anyone could have called this election after how this election was rigged.
In Texas don’t they call a guy like that a piss ant?
I’m no Rove fan, but he was correct if discussing a non fraudlent election. And of course, Fox or any other outlet will not openly discuss the rampant fraud.
Sure there was -some- fraud, but not massive fraud as you suggest.
The stupid party just got its ass aboslutely kicked.
you beat me to it.
The amount of fraud in this election was hardly reported, FOX shilled for Romney to take Newt out and no one coudl have called this election after how this election was rigged.
Still I suppose we all ignore how big their fraud was, how Mia iove, Col West was robbed amongst others.
I;m no fan of Rove but for crying out loud how about FOX reporting on some facts and doing investigative work for a change or are we supposed to watch a bunch of blond air heads like Megyn Kelly who brings her pal the homo activist, media matters on named Sally Khon and then ole PC Gretchen Carlson who can;t say anything without mentioing how women are better than men and how PC she is but then complains how America is to PC
he can go into hiding with Mittens
and please take W with you
I just watched that video what am I missing? All he said was, ‘lets not rush to judgment here.’
there was a load of fraud and anyone saying that in the swong states that fraud didn’t matter has their head up their ass.
Patriot08 has many links to this fraud after her hard work it.
I can’t stand Rove but I didn’t see a meltdown
Good. And, I cannot listen to Sean anymore: his calling Rove “the Architect” makes me sick.
The only fault I can find with Rove on this is he didn’t understand that 2012 was going to be a Chicago-style “election”. More dead people than all three seasons of “The Walking Dead”. Saddam Hussein would have been embarrassed by this much fraud.
I have reasons I don’t like Rove, so I won’t miss him. Actually, I hardly watch Fox anymore so I wouldn’t miss him anyway.
I will be sure and tune in, though, when Fox does its expose’ report on all those precincts that had 110% turnout at the polls.
When these “pundits” predict a huge victory for a candidate, I think it tends to suppress the vote; makes people tend to think it’s in the bag, so why bother to vote. - I suspect that’s why Obama had the waterworks going; because he was likely afraid his network hadn’t done enough to counter the huge number of people who are sick of him. - Now the Republicans in Congress and the same “pundits” have diagnosed their “problem” as being extremist Conservatives - and, once again, they’re wrong.
