Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Out At Fox News Channel
Posted on 01/25/2013 2:19:04 PM PST by Nachum
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Fox News Channel are parting ways, according to a report in Real Clear Politics. After three years as a paid contributor for the channel, FNC and the former Republican vice presidential nominee have decided to cut ties.
A source close to Palin told Real Clear Politics that it was the governors decision not to renew their contract.
*Its 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.

Not surprised. Fox News is pretty much has become center-left.
Good for her. I don’t watch them anymore. Nothing there left to watch.
She’s been pretty quiet anyway. Aside from a handful of tweets about abortion on twitter over the last few days.
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...
FreeRepublican CHANNEL would be great..!
Good. She is better than FOX
Cancel your cable, folks...defund the commies.
I haven’t watched Fox since 2008 or by mistake in a hotel room here and there while on the road. It’s all a joke now in terms of the LSM. FR and Rush are pretty much all I need.
I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of Mrs. Palin over
the next few years.
I’m happy to hear it. Fox News only is too shackley.
Well....good for her. She probably sees Fox careening to the left like we all do.
Maybe she’ll be freer to do and say other things now.
I dislike FoxNews almost as much as I do CNN. Good for Sarah!
I hope we do see more of her. The Demos hate her probably because she appeals to their low info crowd. We should have used her more during the campaign. She is a very talented asset.
I doubt it. Unless she teams up with Beck, nobody will be seeing Palin.
Without media attention, she is not going to have any voice.
You seem to get it. She is going to be seeking office you watch.
Good. She is better than FOX.
(...now I’m SURE I heard an echo echo.)
Hmmmm. Palin tells Fox "No thanks" and Cain tells Georgia "No thanks" on a senate run. I can only pray that these two have some great plans up their sleeves ;)
Of interest...who didn’t see this coming?
I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of Mrs. Palin over
the next few years.
Radio, or a show on Blaze, or to some speakers bureau are logical possibilities for the politically inclined, for whom want independence is a priority. Maybe something entirely different that improves her image beyond her base.
What happened to the residence in Phoenix, AZ. Is Bristol residing there still? Just wondering if that location means anything now. Perhaps a springboard, for convenience sake, to something new.
I may be one of the few, I agree with Palin on lots but when she quit as Gov. due to the “press” she quite being a viable candidate to me.
She can be a leader in many ways but not a candidate.
you may all now yell and flame me but, if you cant stand the attack press of ALASKA I have doubts about how you will fair in DC. (maybe as Senator as the one from there just went stupider)
Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, to start.
Conservatives with more than two active brain cells left FoxNews in 2007, when they swung to The Mulatto Messiah and the Left.
Palin is not going to be on the same panel as Dennis Kookcinich (a new Hire at FN), and she sees what we all have seen in the State-Run-Media, including FN.
The contract was probably for less. This is no victory for Palin. Even though there are those trying to pretend it is.
Palin has been out of the loop a long time now.
She’s going to run for president in ‘16.
Fox news just wants to stick with Ted Baxter and Juan Williams types.
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!
They just renewed with Carl Rove through 2016, and now this?
Same here, Fox News sucks.
Do we have to explain why again????
“...of what they think is Sarah Palins dead career...”
Palin doesn’t look at politics/elective office / media comentary as a career. W’d all be better off if our elective office holders took the attitude of the citizen lawmaker.....
Their fixed it...:-)
I would hope so!
I love that!
Godspeed Sarah! She is centered and strong and I look forward to her continued leadership.
The question is, how much longer will Gore, with his newly-acquired hundreds of millions, buy THEM and offer THEM a slot?
I think you’re right!
God bless and keep her!
I agree, Trish.
Excellent! And somewhat expected. I’m glad to see Palin leave that sinking ship. FoxNews can be content with Rove and Kucinich, who seem a better fit, considering the putrid direction the network been heading.
Used to be a big viewer, but I’d just about entirely given up watching any of FoxNews anyway. I’d tune in for Palin appearances and occasionally keep an eye out for Michelle Malkin, but other than that, it’s become worthless. After the 2010 mid-terms, it became an obnoxious mouthpiece for the GOP beltway elites, and since the election, it’s apparently even jumped on the gun-control and open-border amnesty bandwagons!
“Palin has been out of the loop a long time now.”
That is a good thing, as it is easier to effect change when not in someone’s gun sights, figuratively speaking.
Agreed. It is apparent to me that she has not invested her time in becoming more informed. I wish her and her family well. She is great as a cheerleader, and I mean that positively, but she does not have gravitas. The media crucified Gingrich. I don't see her overcoming them in a campaign.
I hope you are right!
“I hope we do see more of her. The Demos hate her probably because she appeals to their low info crowd. We should have used her more during the campaign. She is a very talented asset.”
Used her more? She should have ran and we should have told the MSM to mind their own business on who we want to nominate for President.
But alas, we didn’t and we saw what the MSM gave us. John McCain lite.
I’m sorry but you are clueless!!! Sarah didn’t resign because of the press, she resign because the democrats were trying to bankrupt her by filling frivilous and fake ethical charges against her. She said that the time to personally defend herself legally well over 20 charges and more that were coming was taking a toll on the state business. The Republicans there hated her and didn’t want to come to her aid either. She sacrifice herself so that the State could move forward. You are embarrassing
Thanks, my friend
You and Dr. O, too
