Dick Morris Dropped By Fox News
Deadline.com via Drudge ^ | Feb. 5, 2013 | By DOMINIC PATTEN

Posted on 02/05/2013 4:34:11 PM PST by library user

Long time contributor Dick Morris will no longer be a talking head on Fox New Channel. “His contract is up and we will not be renewing it, ” a spokesperson for the news network confirmed today.

A perpetual presence during last year’s Presidential election, Morris has not been seen on FNC since November 12.

Earlier today, he did announce via Twitter that he would be making an appearance on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight on Wednesday.

That will be the first time the conservative former Clinton advisor has appeared on CNN since 2002.

Morris isn’t the only big name contributor departure from the top rated new network.

FNC recently parted ways with former GOP VP candidate Sarah Palin after three years.

On the other hand, Fox News also re-signed Karl Rove to a multiyear contract and added liberal former Congressman Dennis Kucinich as a contributor.

Is it wrong that I’d prefer Morris back than to continue hearing from Rove? Morris may be right only 10% of the time, but at least he isn’t actively trying to destroy conservatives at every turn.

Guess that’s what he gets for auctioning off a FOX New HQ tour at the Republican convention and for being a hooker hiring toe sucker.

Romney will elected in ‘12.

Caused it.

You are right. As wrong as he often was Morris was just trying to rightly predict.

Rove seeks to change outcomes.

TOE-SUCKER SPEA... - oh, wait, no he won’t, not anymore.

But he’ll be on CNNObama, as well as his website he’s always pimping, and his body of fiction novels.

And of course, he’ll still have Chelsea on speed-dial...

For entertainment value I’d rather listen to Dick Morris than Sarah Palin or Karl Rove. The whole Dick Morris gig is just fun.

Hate Rove at this point, and Sarah never polished her delivery. IMHO.

Dick Morris was bad, but it looks as if Fox News has decided to go from bad to worse.

Fox should hire Col. Martha McSally to replace Sarah Palin. McSally is conservative, tough and very well spoken.

Well it is clear that Faux News is fully in the bag for Krove and company. Good thing I have an internet hook up so I can read news on line.

About the only time I watched recently was if Sarah Palin was on......No More. It is obvious that it is now the Elite Network. Buh Buh

I’m sure it doesn’t mean anything that Fox News is letting the Clinton’s harshest critic go.

Changing stations HAS to be an option. I saw Morris in person at a fundraier for a good man in Chicago. Morris was telling us all (largely FREEPer types, many on this board) we had to support Romney. This was BEFORE the Illinois and Wisconsin primaries. Hack.

Good points. Palin is not a good pundit. She’s not a writer like Charles Krauthammer and really doesn’t take to the time to craft a good argument.

She should have stayed in Alaska, kept on being an excellent governor, and now she would be a top-tier presidential candidate. But it’s too late, baby.

I knew this was coming. Morris held himself out as a political prognosticator and “flopped big time this last election.” He stuck his neck out and Fox is now cutting off his head!

I think that one of the basic reasons that Morris was off the mark on many of his political analyses is because he grossly underestimated Democratic corruption on many things.

Morris reminded me too much of a snake oil salesman. Always had that look like he was pulling a fast one on everyone. Just wouldn’t trust him, and after this past November, I REALLY don’t trust him. I have thought, but can’t prove, that he may have had a hand in sabotaging the campaigns of Romney’s rivals, particularly Herman Cain.

Carl Rove is the “architect” of losing the House and Senate in 2006, when the unemployment rate was 4.5%———and his strategy was followed by Mitt Romney and resulted in losing the White House and seats in the House and Senate in 2012 to a president and party running trillion dollar deficits for 5 straight years when the unemployment rate is over 7.5% and higher than when Obama took office. Why would you sign the demolition man to a new multi-year contract????? So he can figure out new ways to lose elections and create more independents????? “Let’s see-——this county in Ohio has lots of registered Republicans, so if we can just get all of those registered Republicans to the polls to vote for us, then maybe we can beat those 47% of registered Democrats—as long as they don’t show up to vote in the same numbers”. So he campaigned only in areas with huge Republican registration advantages, trying to stir up only Republicans to vote for him.......and it looked as though he was the rich, white candidate seeking the rich, white Republican vote against the black president —who campaigned as a “moderate” for everybody’s votes and not just his supposed “base”. Obama campaigned in the cities, the towns, the rural areas, whereas Romney didn’t even go near a minority district or a city!!!!! Carl Rove is all about politics and not ideas. He is the problem. And he is wishy washy on immigration. Republicans are supposed to make a deal with Democrats on immigration that we KNOW Democrats have no intention of keeping their end of the deal-—because their end of the deal is ONLY a “promise” to crack down on illegal immigration after they pocket the real goods of more legal immigration and putting 10 million Democrats on the path to voting. Bush was panderer and chief—and cost our party greatly.

You have a good point because whereas Morris often was wrong, Rove made an enormous ass of himself on election night, yet they are keeping him around.

Face it folks, Fox is putting more liberals on in reaction to the election results.

Heard him speak at an event I attend. Spoke before lunch.

He was drunk and sloppy and had to be ‘musiced’ off the stage

I always get the impression that Rove really thinks he is the true voice, the unelected leader, if you will, of the Republican Party. I don’t think he could lead a one car funeral procession. His ideas are totally out of touch with real middle-class Republicans.

GOOD simile with the characterization of “demolition man”,
extending the question further: would you hire a demolition contractor rather than a building contractor to build your house?

Fox should have fired him a long, long time ago.

Dick Morris is a con man. He found his niche telling conservatives what they wanted to hear. Never mind his predictions were mostly crap.

Wouldn’t surprise me if Morris goes over to CNN and quickly starts changing his tune and begins trashing conservatives.

I wonder why FOX is changing its focus with such good ratings over the last period.

What is the targeted demographic now? How is it different?

I guess that may be secondary to the wishes of the owners and their personal agendas for the news station.

As in all things, follow the money, follow the power.

For certain, it is to at least keep the influences of the conservatives out of the company.

I no longer believe that Rove has a value system. He just as many others is only in it for the power.

I would not have said that 4 years ago.

The GOP is dead unless it nominates a conservative.

Rove did everything he could to make sure that did not happen for both election cycles 2010 and 2012
