Skip to comments.Sarah Palin to Rejoin Fox News Channel
Posted on 06/13/2013 1:30:19 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Ms. Palin became a national celebrity after her unsuccessful 2008 vice presidential turned into a media career as a paid Fox News contributor from January 2010 to January of this year. The Wall Street Journal reported in January that Ms. Palin wouldn't be renewing her contract with the cable news networking, citing a person familiar with the matter.
"I've had several conversations with Governor Palin in the past few weeks about her rejoining Fox News as a contributor," Mr. Ailes said Thursday. "I have great confidence in her and am pleased that she will once again add her commentary to our programming."
Ms. Palin will appear on Fox News Channel's daytime and primetime programming, starting with Fox & Friends on Monday. She will also contribute to Fox Business Network.....

Yeah, that’s it! [snort]
Murdoch rehired her, not Roger Ailes.
her and Cruz should run
Irrelevance - she’s doin’ it wrong.
Hopefully she doubled her salary.
Murdoch Amnesty Flashback:
Give them a path to citizenship, Murdoch said. They pay taxes. They are hard-working people. Why Mitt Romney doesnt do it, I have no idea because they are naturally Republicans.
The libs will go crazy.
Murdoch also just filed for divorce.
Maybe this is some sort of ham-handed pass?
So hard working they vote Democrat and obtain welfare subsidies.
Well that is quite the accusation, you are claiming that Governor Palin is being paid off to keep her OUT OF POLITICS, interestingly, by putting her on the top political news show.
How can you just make up such vile things about someone as respected and decent as Sarah Palin, the most respected and trusted conservative we have?
Now that would be a ticket!
What’s funny is the Sarah is already a grandmother and Hillary isn’t.
“the most respected and trusted conservative we have?”
I thought that was JimRob...
LOL, we need a poster of that.
She is being paid by Murdoch to stay on the sidelines on Amnesty this summer until Boner gets it passed. Other topics will be fair game. Just not Amnesty.
Governor Palin has been glaringly absent on the immigration debate.
What next, rehiring Glenn Beck?
So that was a yes?
You believe that Governor Palin is being paid off to silence her on news and politics, by being hired back to do her political commentator and analyst work on the top News/politics network, that she left not very long ago?
The Ed Snowden Show, live, for insomniac libertarians.
You are a nut with no honor.
You simply make up a disgusting lie about a fine person, and brazenly show it to the world with no self consciousness at all.
What a sleazy bottom feeder.
I’m about tired of the bottom feeders like that around here.
I wonder will FOX will re-install studio equipment in home?
Where did you read that they took it back?
They aren’t here right now, you are.
Only a disgusting loser, as dishonest as the day is long, when he wants to insult someone, or criticize someone like Governor Palin, makes up a complete bald-faced lie about her and then starts posting it on the internet.
I hope she got a “Play me or trade me” clause this time. Last time they refused to air her when they didn’t like what she had to say. It’s their right to do that, but she’s being a fool if she lets them do it again.
I don't think she's being paid off. As a former journo, she knows where the red lines are and what third rail topics to avoid, if she wants to remain viable in broadcast news/entertainment.
I want a Sarah Palin Channel.
Kissing tail and kowtowing-she's doin' it wrong.
And Palin's power is in politics and political influence as the conservative leader and the most effective endorser in history, not in entertainment.
The future of the country is at stake in the immigration debate and you are handing out passes to leaders of the conservative movement to "avoid third rails" so that they can "remain viable". That's what we expect from Boehner and his crew, not true leaders like Cruz and Palin.
Sarah Palin = Ratings
Smart business decision. Bet she got one hellofa contract!!
Go get ‘em Sarah!!
I'd take issue with the bolded part of that assertion. Palin endorsed Mourdock. He lost. She endorsed Christine O'Donnell. She lost. She endorsed Sharron Angle. She lost. Palin is enormously influential in GOP primaries. But she doesn't get Republicans elected in place of Democrats.
Here she comes......step by step.....
I am merely suggesting that by accepting a position in the media, she is effectively muzzling herself. In today's media environment, being against illegal immigration is akin to being against mixed marriages. The moment she stakes out a position against illegal immigration, she will be looking for a new job. I don't blame her for looking out for her family - she does need to pay the bills, and TV gigs are well-remunerated. But anyone who thinks this gives her a platform for talking about immigration may end up being sorely disappointed.
She has over FOUR MILLION followers on Facebook and another MILLION on Twitter. Anything she wants to talk about is world-wide news in a fraction of a second.
Might want to ask Ted Cruz, Nikki Haley, Marco Rubio, John McCain, Terry Branstad, Jason Smith, Martha Zoller and a bunch of other people about that...
Shocker From ABC’s Jonathan Karl: ‘Sarah Palin Is 4 for 4 on Her Senate Endorsements’
Palin is the most effective endorser in history, you didn’t even make an effort to name challengers to that title.
You merely mentioned some who didn’t win from among her 80 or so endorsements, she has done more to shape the Congress Senate, and Governorships in her own image, than anyone in history, also.
By the way, she didn’t endorse Angle in the primary and 2010 was a stunning victory for her and conservatism, it was history making.
One can almost see a yellowish-brown cloud of stench emitting from the mouth, and nose of that has-been, lying POS Clinton as she inhales perfectly good air, and turns it into clouds of polluting gases as she exhales.
Just have to look real close, but don’t get too close, or you might die.
May, 2010--"Sarah Palin Takes Stand on Immigration"
"Arizonans have the courage to do what the Obama administration has failed to do in its first year and a half in office, namely secure our border and enforce our federal laws," she wrote. "And as a result, Arizonans have been subjected to a campaign of baseless accusations by the same people who freely admit they haven't a clue about what they're actually campaigning against." The former Alaska governor sparked controversy Saturday with her comments at a campaign event for Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer.
"Now this state has enacted a law -- it mirrors the federal law -- which allows police to ask those they otherwise have stopped to provide a driver's license or other verification of legal presence. I think for most American people the reaction to this would be, 'Why haven't the police already been doing that?'" Palin asked the crowd.
How many of these GOP officeholders took the place of a Democratic predecessor?
I assumed it, which I know is the mother of all screw ups, but I see it as a safer assumption then assuming they left it there.
I did read here on FR that her departure was not exactly a gracious one at least as far as FOX was concerned, as I remember it was about compensation. So I assumed they would not likely leave expensive equipment at her home.
I will also step out on limb and assume FOX asked her to come back, having realized she is a real boost to the bottom line.
So in lacking complete and total information, I sometimes resort to assumptions as they often land on the truth, but I understand that may only happen to me and not to everyone.
I could also assume that this whole thing was just a ploy to increase ratings at such a time as this, which could have always been the plan.
Most of the time I preface my assumptions with statements such as “I wonder”, “Perhaps”, “Maybe” etc.
Thank You for your question and the opportunity to explain.
Dates are key. In 2010, the media was still talking about illegal immigrants. Today, they are talking about undocumented immigrants.
It’s sad she would stoop to that level.
What are you, the little kid in the back seat? You keep saying nonsense and when it is answered you merely look for something else.
Palin is the most effective endorser in history, you didnt even make an effort to name challengers to that title.
