Sarah Palin Parts Ways With FOX News
RCP ^

Posted on 01/25/2013 2:18:18 PM PST by sunmars

After a three-year run as a paid contributor to the nation’s highest-rated cable news channel, Sarah Palin and FOX News have cut ties, according to a source close to the former Alaska governor.

“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.”

The source declined to say whether Palin would pursue a television contract with another news network, such as CNN.

After resigning as governor in 2009, Palin became one of FOX News’ marquee on-air assets, appearing frequently across its programming and often generating headlines for her memorable and characteristically provocative commentary.

In 2010, FOX News constructed a studio inside Palin’s Wasilla, Alaska, home where her husband Todd would sometimes act as cameraman and producer during her live television appearances.

Palin’s relationship with FOX appeared to take several rocky turns. In a Facebook post during the Republican convention last August, for instance, the 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee lamented that the news channel had “cancelled all my scheduled interviews tonight.”

A spokesperson for FOX did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

I would imagine that ALL the MSM news channels will carry this tonight as it is an opportunity to “Gloat over the corpse” of what they think is Sarah Palin’s dead career...

She is also better than the GOP, to tell you the truth. Hopefully she will join Renew America Coalition and make appearances with Alan Keyes who is one of the few making sense these days.

Yep, Alan is consistent and has been making sense for decades. I voted for Keyes in the 2000 GOP primary.

She’ll be on TV for sure and we will know ahead of time
Just because she doesn’t have a contract, she can and will appear, wherever and whenever she wants.

Stripping herself of the chains that bind her perhaps.

I’d liken it to removing the tack, and letting that horse run free. NOT that I think Sarah is a horse...HELL NO! Just she needs to be free, unencumbered, to be herself.

Let it hit the fan.

Did she appear on Fox enough to even justify a contract in the first place?

Praise be to G-d!

Now she won't have to sit and listen to the Corporate PC crap at Faux News! That stifle what she can and cannot say

The GOP and it's establishment is just as much our enemy as the Democrats are.

If you aren't convenience look up who has stood up to Ubama these past Four Years, the GOP or the Tea Party?

Enjoy Dennis Kucinich Suckers!

One problem with that combo. Palin has actually won an election. Keyes hasn’t. And the only thing Keyes has run is his mouth.

Strange isn’t it that if you “resign” you are leaving and yet if you do NOT “re sign” you also leaving? One could say, “I am not going to re-sign and I am going to resign.” How does anybody ever learn English?

LOL. I’m not sure why either, but Fox has too many libtards and I didn’t like the shabby treatment she received “behind her back” but on the air, from the mouths of lesser’s like Juan Williams, BOR, Hume and others.

Where have you been? Sarah was on Hannity and Greta almost weekly for awhile in the past two years and also did favors for FOX business network by doing multiple interviews.

In Honor of Sarah Palin leaving Faux News I am going to become a monthly contributor.

I plan on increasing my amount in the future. So I can become a Dollar a day member, but for now I can do this.

I apologize for not being a dollar a day member now but I just shot my wad with some Car repairs that totaled....several Hundred Dollars.

Anyway G-d Bless Free Republic!

Go Tea Party!

Go Sarah!!!

Fox is not a RINO network because Fox never claimed to be “republican”. Fox News is and always has been center and non-partisan.

We should never play into the hands of the left by calling what is “center” to be pro-republican because in the eyes of the left “republican”= far right even if it’s Sue Collins.

The left loves to tag anything center as far right because they are trying to move “center” leftward.

It was the left who started with this Fox News = Republican. I suppose it’s easy to think that when you look at the alternative far left Clinton loving MSM.

I don’t watch TV news that much but when I do it’s Fox and not MSNBC that I watch and when I do watch them I never think to myself that they are at all a republican network.

This Website has done more for me than you know.

I realized yesterday that I am officially addicted to FReeping, I felt like a bum using all of FR's bandwidth while only occasionally contributing.

Now you will have a steady stream from me.

Screw Faux News entirely!

The Only Person I even want to see on there now is Michelle Malkin and I get all her Newsletters with the links anyway.

I get all my Sarah updates from her facebook, Conservatives4Palin, Motivation Truth or Palintwibe.

Throw off the shackles of the GOP-E and Faux News.

Go Sarah!

As a former Alaska resident myself, I can say she is a great lady and I wish her the best.

I still believe she will have a great influence on our nation in the future at the appointed time, apart from FOX news.
