Posted on 11/18/2008 10:54:41 PM PST by Maelstorm
Exclusive: TVNewser has learned veteran Fox News Channel anchor E.D. Hill will not be renewed when her current contract expires. Hill, who has been with Fox News for more than 10 years, will continue with the network for the next few months until her current deal expires.
SVP of Programming Bill Shine tells TVNewser that he "chose not to renew E.D.'s latest contract" but noted that "Hill has been a valued contributor to the success of FNC over the years, and we wish her all the best."
Hill has been without a regular Fox News program since June 16, when America's Pulse was replaced by two hours of Live Desk. Ten days earlier Hill used the term terrorist fist jab when promoting an upcoming body language segment that was going to look into the primary night fist bump shared by Barack and Michelle Obama.
For most of her nearly 11 years at FNC Hill anchored Fox & Friends. In 2006 she moved to a late morning program then to the afternoons where, in the months leading up to the election, she'd been filling in on America's Election HQ.
Another reason to add why I do not watch Fox anymore.
Please now. That could be offensive to skanks.
Most skanks don’t associate with foreign and domestic terrorists.
My question is “Who protested”? Maybe conservatives need to set up a system to pick a part every mainstream media inappropriate comment and then orchestrate phone calls to the owners of the station!
Time to throw our clout around by employing the tactics of the left!!!
No more nice guys and gals!!!
Your fired! Next....
This is easlly disgusting and I guess Fox is going into the tank for Blacks and B. Obama.
I’ll have to find another sourcefor News, since O’Reilly is in the sam tank.
just amazing the double standards we have in this country anymore...say anything you want about a country bumpkin from texas that becomes the leader of the free world but once the THE MAN (black) is elected watch your mouth...don’t you dare say a thing that can be construed as being rascist. (just shaking my head)
The wonder twins! They did a terrorist fist jab then the brother turned into water and the sis into any animal.
Given that Fox was about 75% in the tank for Obambi this election, I’m making my move. Since the Wall Street Journal is owned by the same Murdoch that owns Fox, I will be ending my subscription to that once-great newspaper and picking up Investors’ Business Daily instead.
I have watched 0 news since Nov. 5.
much better than Gretchen!
It’s time to drop the cloak of “objective reporting” and give us the common sense view of newsworthy events. I want to hear sound, brilliant biases thriving in the heart of proud conservatives on a news channel that defies the seductive trend of liberal elitism.
Let’s see who will create a serious news channel that proudly gives the news from a conservative worldview where all reporters must be socially and fiscally conservative.
Loved that show! But I was a Hong Kong Fooey girl, myself...
Hannity and Greta are all I watch on there any more. They are basically unwatchable.
I watch less and less of Fox anyway. There are a few bright spots on the network - Neil Cavuto and that morning crew. I stopped watching that gang that's on with Brit Hume because, except for Krauthammer, they're all moderate-liberal anyway. Even Brit has lost his touch these last few months.
There are some on the network that induce immediate channel-changing. O'Reilly is, and has been, a statist buffoon that thinks that more laws and more regulation are the answers to non-existant problems. Schwepp Smith is just plain liberal, and a whiney crybaby as well. He sealed his fate when he stood on that bridge post-Katrina begging for tax dollars from the fed to give to the deadbeats in NO who were dumb enough to elect an inept Mayor.
In general, I liked ED Hill. Much of her reporting was very common sense....except for the fact that she seemed to support Planned “Parenthood.”
I already have. Sad, but it is long past time for Conservatives to abandon all illusions of Media Sympathy.
The Progressive Business advertisers are not going to allow for Fair and Balanced, as anyone who watched Fox and their plain lousy coverage of this past election can see. They were "Conservative" the way Huntley and Brinkley were "neutral. Neutrality is an illusion, and I'm not going to be satisfied with the crumbs from the Liberal Table. Sorry.
I've never been exactly a fan of ED, but she's being persecuted, and that's crap.
She said something long time ago, and it was akin to calling Obama a terrorist. I thought they fired her,why is it news now? Michelle Malkin called Michelle Obama a baby’s mama,she’s not around either. I didn’t like either of them-too harsh.
“call fox and protest.”
What would be the point? They are already moving toward the dark side.
Why protest. What she said about the fist bump is utterly retarded.
And she really didn’t communicate much depth on other matters either.
She had a good run. Good for her.
There is a market for a true conservative news network. Why isn’t some smart business person filling the void?
Malkin is very much around. I see her on Fox all the time. She is NOT too harsh, she is a conservative.
Wait until they are turned loose with the orce of law behind them.
It was a dumb comment to make IMHO
E.D. should have known better before making her reference.
Yet it’s perfectly fine for two of FNCs girlie-men to air shrill ad hominem, unfounded, anonymous smears against Gov. Palin.
He is skating on thin ice.
I listened to him two different times for a short period after the election. Both times he could not kiss Omama’s behind enough.
Since I do not care to convert Obama supporters.
Since I do not wish to “get along” with Obama supporters.
Since I do not like Obama supporters.
Since I do not want Obama to succeed.
Since Obama is not my President.
I do not listen to Hannity any longer.
Fixed it for you.
Fox was the last one I watched. I am so fed up with all of them that I just turned the tube off. Don’t even miss it.
Let’s be honest here. ED is being let go because she is way closer to 50 than to 40. That is the way FNC works.
Do writers write what they say or did she come up with that on her own? I’m just curious.
With the exception of Greta’s Palin coverage, I haven’t been watching them since election night. It’s easier than you think.
> They’re letting her go. Big deal, didn’t even know she was missing, what did she bring to the table? <
I agree with you. I always thought E.D. was a net minus for FNC. Ailes is making the right call this time!
(On the other hand, he made the wrong call when he let Kiran Chetry go to CNN. I’d trade her for E. D. any day!)
They were and will be again.
This time it will be the Whites they are terrorizing.
The pimple faced White pukes that voted for Obama are going to be in for a surprise because they will be one of thir targets.
Wonder Twins- ACTIVATE!
Use INTERNET access
I switched off Fox and all other news outlets just before the last election.
I agree with your assessment, “using the Internet” gives a much better coverage of news.
you must have missed seeing britt since he drank from the obama koolaid, I quit him awhile back.
Didn’t Rupert Murdoch sell a big chunk of Fox to a mohammedan not too long ago?
Deputy Dawg would have kicked Hong Kong Fooey's butt...
Sez who? Has she made a statment? Has her agent? Has anybody else who is really in-the-know?
People are let go all the time in the entertainment business -- for reasons you and I often know nothing about.
For example, maybe E.D. and her agent simply asked for too much money during contract negotiations. Maybe she wanted excessive time off to write another book or to handle family matters. Maybe she's just a insufferable prima donna as soon as the cameras and lights go off. Maybe her audience ratings have been very low.
(In any case, Roger Ailes certainly didn't get where he is by making bad personnel decisions!)
Obama is pro-terrorist and so is his shelf ass skank wife.
Maybe so, but he didn’t have that GREAT theme song! Or that cook rikshaw style car! ;-)
I am going to email FOX News, but what if we also contact the Obama people?
I've been tuning out for awhile now. Since Tony Snow went to the White House, FAUX sNooze has made a sharp turn leftward. They are no better than MSDNC, Clinton News Network or C-BS.
