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.

Whenever that fat blob shows up I turn the channel and that’s when I wet h fox which is less and less these days.
Much as I would like to say it was stolen and that we got robbed...I also know that almost no one knows what Benghazi even is. We have some incredibly stupid, uniformed people in this country Joe.
People do not even know what socialism means, not even remotely.
It is not possible to explain to a person where they are headed in terms of political philosophy such as socialism when they do not even understand the words you are using.
Our side has been so utterly ineffective that not only do I think our side didn’t show up, I am not even certain that it exists to the extent that we may believe it exists.
I think we are becoming extinct.
I am fed up with the fraud and the tired excuses butThe media and
Fox media enablers .
The election was stolen and done very openly but the
Media is owned by the Daley Soros machine and nothing will be leaked out ever .
Early voting in Fl and OH gave the Dems more access to electronic voting machine and time to create votes !
The fact the Broward Black leftist Election crook had spare votes just incase said it all !
The stupid party just got its ass aboslutely kicked."
Boy we sure got our asses kicked during passage of 0bamacare too but that doesn't mean it was achieved legitimately. FAR FROM IT, my friend. And if you don't consider the possibility that John Roberts was threatened by the regime for his vote than you're underestimating the putrid STANK of this regime. The state-run news media almost SINGLE-HANDEDLY STOLE this election from Romney. You think Morsi waiting until AFTER our election (and his meeting with Hillary in Gaza) to proclaim himself DICTATOR was a coincidence? See how THEFT of an election can occur by conspiracy on multiple fronts?.. I can give you more examples, if need be, like the one state that mysteriously withheld it's job numbers before the election, or Lockheed agreeing to violate the WARN Act with it's 'to be laid off' employees to assist in an 0bama win in exchange for more government contracts.. BLAH.. BLAH.. BLAH... The putrid STANK; total disregard of ethics, dignity, honor and TRUTH in the news media STOLE this election from Romney. Make NO mistake about it.
Beck was the most popular show they had, and they canned him? Oh well, their loss, his gain.
They will never have a Levin or Ingraham show, not in OUR best interest you know/s. Too much TRUTH to digest all at one time. We need pablum, rewarmed and spoon fed every day.
Not sure I know her, what does she do, when is she on? I don’t watch much fox anymore, early morning to see whats new and that’s it.
Even then he must be muted.
Never seen anyone slobber over Zero the way he does, sickening and a bold face liar same as Combs (spelled intentially wrong)
Yes. I believe that exposure to more than a few seconds of Juan Williams “thinking” probably causes the person watching to lose IQ points.
You want FOX to do it. Why don't you do it?
It is so old and so tiresome - all these rants and frothing of the mouth about voter fraud and all many people offer are lame anecdotes.
My point is unless you are willing to do something about it, then don't waste my time with venting. It accomplishes nothing.
Focus on current issues and future issues. Thank you.
Maybe we shouldn’t declare winners or at least concede until all votes are counted.
You can fool yourself as many times as you want (Aikin and Murd...whatever his name is) but voters will not bite and vote for candidates they think are dumb or discredited.
A good candidate will take steps to make themselves credible to the voting public; bad ones won't.
That is politics 101 - plain and simple.
Deny it all you want, but it was proven in 2010 and again in 2012. Bad candidates don't win elections even when voters agree with their views. I am sure Missouri voters as a whole are more pro life than pro choice, but they won't vote for a candidate they think is dumb.
What you are describing, respectfully OISA, are tactics that were employed effectively by the left, but you are not describing vote fraud.
The result of those effectively employed tactics did result in a democrat win, but what also played a hand in that win is the staggering inability of the GOP or any of its candidates outside of perhaps Cruz to successfully counter those tactics.
Furthermore, those same tactics will be employed again after further refining to even greater effect, especially considering that the GOP now thinks it lost because Romney was “too conservative”...
OISA, I know of no other way to say this than saying the GOP is a bunch of ****ing n00bs. For real. They do not know anything about politics, they cannot read political tea leaves, they do not know which way the wind is blowing, they stand for nothing, they do not like conservatives, they are without a doubt the single biggest collection of losers that I have ever seen in my entire life, and they are going to continue to lose until they are all gone.
YOU do not know there was not massive fraud! More people openly said they were not voting for him again. The maggots overplayed their hand. There was massive fraud!
Nor the bogus BC! Who says they are fair and balanced? As they seek who they can castrate for speaking what they believe.
I agree. Romney was an idiot who could barely tie Obama in the polls, why is everyone shocked he lost? The Republicans are fractured and marginalized, the Democrats are concentrated and committed. They had better organization and stayed on message. The Republicans were all over the place etch-a-sketching. Also it didnt help that the candidate was Willard!
That was a lot of post, and it had zero relevance to my post, so I don’t know what it is I’m supposed to be denying or not.
I don’t care what you think of social conservatives, but you should despise Karl Rove for going on TV and blasting our nominees during the week of their primary win, to make sure that he destroys their chances.
By the way, you left off the worst candidate of all, Mitt Romney.
Thank God for the tea party, Palin won Ted Cruz a Senate seat, and was responsible for our only Senate pick-up, Deb Fischer, and some congressional seats.
Romney may have been a disaster, but Palin had a pretty good election.
“That is politics 101 - plain and simple.”
This election they got previous obama voters. We lost because of voter fraud. Plain and simple. Are they talking about it? No. Can they? No. So now you know. Are they talking about anything the commies do? No.
Yep. The GOP is a non stop slow motion disaster occurring over and over and over.
It is so old and so tiresome
Then go to bed or a nursing home, you wouldn't be missed!
No, we didn’t.
We lost because our politcal party ****ING SUCKS.
If it didn’t ****ING SUCK, then it would not stand for voter fraud occurring at all.
Whatever happened in 2012 happened as a direct result of the GOP ****ING SUCKING.
I’m not sure if I said that the GOP ****ING SUCKS enough, so let me just summarize by saying that the GOP ****ING SUCKS!
Pardon my French, I’m tired of being back stabbed by a party that ****ING SUCKS.
Who cares that I don’t watch FOX or who cares about Rove? They still have Heraldo, She-phard, Juan and many others. At least some of the others are honest enough to say they are Democrats. Except for Cavuto, Lou, Greta and maybe one other, the rest of them would fit right in on CNN. I watch FOX Business Channel and will do so until the end of December when I have to cut it off because of $$. That channel I will miss.
I first got severely turned off by Foxx - which I used to have on, at least in the background pretty much all evening - by the way they treated Newt in the primary season. But it wasn’t just Rove, though he was catainly one prime culprit. I was ESPECIALLY disgusted by Brit Hume, whom I had previously admired and respected.
I simply couldn’t figure out what Hume was so openly, blatantly dismissive and hostile to Newt. Then I did some research and learned that he bizarrely and mistakenly blamed Newt for the suicide of his faggot son. That the network has never to this day disclosed this blatant conflict of interest is corruption of the highest form.
I did not see a melt down but now that we’re purging, how about Tamara Holder (Jesse Jackson’s mistress) and Santita Jackson (his daughter). These two make me almost as sick as Sally Kohn and Alan Colmes. Although Alan is the ugliest and I’ve looked at him the longest....so first get rid of Alan, then the rest. IMO
Why did you put your faith in them to begin with? Why didn’t you learn in ‘08?
Why didn’t you see the obvious when they rammed Romney through and the pathetic display in the primaries - candidates on the panel who has no chance in hell to be president making believe you had so many choices!
Why didn’t you have a clue when they went into overdrive on Sarah for four years? The ONLY one who stuck up for her was Newt! What were you doing, learning French?
No, I learned French in high screwel.
Forgot most of it by now though.
I did learn in 08’. I saw very clearly. There was sadly no other viable choice, but what makes it even sadder is that the GOP itself is not a viable choice.
I stuck with the GOP this election because I want Obama out. To do anything else would have been contrary to that goal. However, the goal was not achievable in reality. Thus having lost, I am no longer fearful of losing. I do not fear at all what will happen if I bolt the GOP, because it’s the exact same thing that will happen if I don’t bolt the GOP.
Therefore, I am now free to reject their open backstabbing at their peril. Screw them. If they like to lose so much, then lose. They’ve mastered it, they should have no trouble pulling off an utter, total, complete crushing defeat in 2014 and then in 2016, assuming of course that those elections actually occur.
I will represent my own rights and beliefs. I do not need or want this feckless group of pussies to do a damn thing for me. So help me God if they run Jeb Bush in 2016, I will vote democrat all the way down. If they do not have the balls to make the democrats own what’s coming, then I will make the democrats own what’s coming by electing as many of them as I can.
Republican = enemy.
I watched it, and it did not seem bad. They keep Bob Beckel on who has dropped the F-bomb live t least twice. The keep on their stars, who regularly invite Black Panthers and treat the with respect. Rove did NOTHING in comparison.
yeah, how DARE someone think they can make personal decisions YOU disagree with.
The very NERVE of individuals!
Yet another control freak masquerading as a "CONSERVATIVE".
Pathetic, and beneath contempt.
Oh, and it is VERY likely that your response will be unworthy of response, since it will be a personal attack, followed by much ad-hominum, none of which is based in any fact other than the author's personal vendetta.
Have the day you deserve.
Karl Rove presents a different problem — while [evangelical leaders] are politically naive (from my angle) Karl is not, he's as shrewd as a serpent.
Karl is far more formidable...in the presidential Republican primary in 12’, Karl stepped on Rick Perry and then Newt Gingrich every chance he got albeit with deceit and sophistication and elevated Mitt Romney at strategic, crucial points along their way to the Republican nomination Rove’s candidate.
As an example of how sophisticated Rove is Karl Rove was out raising money to keep Santorum alive until they could kill Newt Santorum basically ran for Governor of Iowa in 2011, visiting all 99 counties; Santorum, out of Iowa, had no organization, no money and no chance in 2012 to be the Republican nominee; he was only a stalking horse for Mitt Romney Rove kept Santorum alive until he could kill Rick Perry first, and then Newt Gingrich.
To you and all the people who just wanted Obama out, don’t take a doufous to a political campaign ~ bring a real candidate who’s willing to call a spade a spade and kick some butt!
I’m not watching Fox anymore. I’m over it. The country went over the brink. Theres no more “hoping” for the election to bring us back to our senses. I wonder if their ratings have dropped since the election
Hip hip hooray!
I, for one, am glad they are downgrading Rove. He is wrong and he wasted a lot of money. He doesn’t deserve the reputation he has. Its time for him and the rest of the Bush era team to move on. And Morris is good for some entertainment value but he has been wrong so many times over the past 10 years that it isn’t funny. Its probably time for him to go too. And while we’re at it, Barone has egg all over his face too at this point. We have no good conservative poll analysts at this point.
Rove did not have an election night meltdown. He was right at that particular time to say that the call should have waited a bit.
I would, however, take him off the air for his “spectacularly wrong” predictions of a Romney win. Morris is simply too wrong too often to be believable.
Rove should have been eased out when earlier in the campaign he jokingly advised the assassination of Akins, the MO senate candidate.
Morris should have been eased out for being “spectacularly wrong” for a long period of time.
The best commentating talking head that Fox has right now, imho, is Judge Napolitano. It’s a shame in regards to life, that he’s a liberatarian. But, when it comes to making the complex simple, that man is a genius communicator.
His explanation of the Veterans Gun Rights Issue two days ago was so clear, concise, and on the money, that it would have been virtually impossible to walk away from hearing that explanation without knowing that issue inside and out.
Napolitano is gifted.
[I still wont watch FOX.]
My blood pressure is doing great since I stopped watching ANY of the cable or national news.
My own personal boycott and it works for me...I just stopped feeding the media beast.
[And the same thing is going to happen in 2014 and 2016.]
IMO, it didn’t HAVE to massive fraud, they knew exactly where to commit it down to the districts.
That information was gleaned from the 2004 AND 2010 elections.
[BS!!! Rove did not have a meltdown...]
That what the media does, they are drama queens.
Certainly far from a melt-down. I thought he was being reasonable in his asking questions and looking at the numbers. I consider this poppycock to me.
Fox News Is Keeping Karl Rove & Dick Morris Off the Air Following Poor Election Predictions, Report Claims
Fox News programming chief Bill Shine, has sent out orders mandating that producers must get permission before booking Rove or Morris.
At a rehearsal on the Saturday before the election, according to a source, anchor Megyn Kelly chuckled when she relayed to colleagues what someone had told her: I really like Dick Morris. Hes always wrong but he makes me feel good.
She has connections to George Soros and was one of the organizers of the “occupy movement” and is a lesbian that tries to look and act like a man. I don’t if there is one particular show that has her on, I don’t watch or pay much attention to Fox anymore but if she’s on I turn it off.
Barone may have proved to be as wrong as Morris and Rove about the election, but he has more objective intelligence
than both of them put together. I’ve read him for a long time, and am always impressed at the substance of the things he says, and his unique perspectives. He’s coming from a whole different area than Rove and Morris, lacks their high-profile techno-glitz, but he never put himself out there as a flash-point prognosticator in the spotlight, and decidedly is also NOT someone who is selling anything like books, websites,or his own services as fundraiser, PAC-man, or Kingmaker.
Can't you just imagine this was the scene with Obama and his Commie staff after stealing the election through voter fraud- while Conservatives blame Romney, argue, point fingers, blather on about who to run in four years, 'starting a new party', and try to figure out how to suck up to minorities the 'next time'?
Map from Barack Obama Voter Fraud 2012
What most refuse to acknowledge is that it was unlikely that ANYBODY could have beaten the voter fraud planned and perpetrated by the Obama machine. They seem to prefer pointing fingers, blaming Romney and blathering on about who to run in 2016 and how to suck up to the minorities.
>Polls indicated that Romney was going to win the election.
>The economy is close to Great Depression era conditions, and unemployment is almost as high as when Obama entered office.
>Economic conditions became so dire after Obama took office it prompted the rise of an entire new movement, the Tea Party.
>Presidents rarely win reelection when the economy is in the tank.
>Mitt knew it too, when he was met by several thousand in that parking garage cheering him when he arrived unannounced at that airport, and he put his hand over his heart and said, 'This is how you know you've won'.
So how did Romney lose a race that numerous reputable polls and pundits predicted would be an easy win, based on historical patterns?
Massive voter fraud.
That and no other reason
Almost every major Conservative website has put out an article charging voter fraud- Breitbart, American Thinker, Atlas Shrugs, WND, The Blaze, Front Page Magazine, Fox News, The Daily Caller, Town Hall, Human Events..
We can not wait for 2014 and 2016 to regroup and figure out new strategies. By then it will be too late. The Marxist/Muslim usurper will have completed his planned distruction of America. That's what people fail to understand.
We must act NOW.
Start with the election. If we let the Rats get away with this massive voter fraud, we're no better than a bananna republic.
We must keep digging and pounding him every day, in every way we can- phony birth certificate, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, his hidden life, records....
Col Allen West; "I don't want to see America become like Zimbabwe where people dont trust their electoral process. If we cannot trust the integrity of the voting system then we are no longer a free republic".
Col West has opened the door.
We must fight election fraud.
It falls on We the People.
Silence is consent
These elections are NOT certified yet. The only way to get this investigated, much less recounted or overturned, is through the Secretary of State of each of the five key states: Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. EVEN IF YOU ARE IN ANOTHER STATE you can help. But it wont do any good to dilute our effort to challenge California or Michigan or other states. Until a major group gets involved to do more, here is the plan: Contact the Secretary of State of the state in question. See contact information below...

Fair enough. The GOP had one of two of those in recent years.
One was Sarah Palin, whom they stabbed in the back and disrespected.
The other was Allen West who they stabbed in the back, redistricted, and then lifted not a finger to support him as he claimed voter fraud, which I do believe occurred.
I despise the GOP now. I’m not going to vote for them again, and I may well vote against them.
If the GOP can be purged from government, then the democrat party will no longer have its whipping boy. No more foil to blame, nothing but what they do.
People might say, I’m crazy because the democrats will be free to implement anything they want, and I say to that just as they are right now and have been for some time.
