Sarah Palin Out At Fox News

Sarah Palin Out At Fox News

The Huffington Post  |  By Posted:   |  Updated: 01/25/2013 5:19 pm EST

Sarah Palin has parted ways with Fox News, multiple outlets wrote on Friday.

Real Clear Politics was the first to report that Palin — who reportedly signed a $1 million-a-year contract with the network in 2010 — will not be renewing it. The New York Times' Brian Stelter later confirmed the news with Fox News.

A "source close to Palin" told RCP that she had turned down a new offer. Fox News merely told the New York Times in a statement that it wished her the best.

The news is not very surprising, but it does highlight, as much as anything, Palin's diminished relevance. Reports about the increasingly icy relationship between Palin and Fox News CEO Roger Ailes have been circulating for years. He has mocked her in public, and is said to have privately labeled her "stupid." Meanwhile, her public profile has waned as the years since her bid for the vice presidency grind on.

In August, New York magazine's Gabriel Sherman wrote that a new contract for Palin was a very iffy thing indeed. That report came the day after Palin publicly complained that the network had canceled some of her appearances.

By the time her contract ended, it had been since mid-December that Palin had appeared on Fox News at all.


Buh bye.

The lesson in the betrayal of Sarah Palin

Rush Limbaugh on his radio show discussed an article which stated that there is no respected voice in the national arena articulating Conservatism. http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2013/01/14/conservatives _have_no_credibility_with_the_low_info_crowd_because _we_don_t_defend_our_own_when_they_come _under_attack Such an advocate for Conservatism is crucial to reversing the direction of America as Obama drives us toward socialism while low-info voters gleefully sing Kumbaya in the backseat.

Well excuse me for pointing out the obvious, but we had an extraordinary advocate for Conservatism and look what happened to her. Judas on our side betrayed her – sold her reputation for 30 seconds of fame and favor with the media.

Even now, folks on our side are still beating up on Sarah Palin saying – Palin has lost her appeal – Palin is unelectable – Palin wasn't smart enough – Palin wasn't prepared and etc. So, this is how we treat our heroes.

Many Democrat Party politicians/advocates are immoral, liars and cheats. And yet, they are treated like super-stars by the media. Democrats have the backs of their associates, no matter what. For example: Democrats never rebuked Clinton for receiving oral sex from an intern in the Oval Office. They simply launched a campaign claiming that any man in Clinton's position would have reacted like him. Think about that folks, Democrats and the media lowered the standard of national leadership behavior to cover their guy.

We Conservatives act as if our representatives must be the reincarnation of Jesus Christ – perfect in every way. At a Conservative's slightest misstep, Republicans/Conservatives trip over one another backing away from the individual in an effort to get out of the media and Democrat's line of fire.

Clearly, advocates of Conservatism are expected to walk on water by both political parties.

Word on the political street is we need a respected advocate for Conservatism to reach low-info voters. While I do believe a new voice will emerge, I wonder who could be better than Sarah Palin? Will we betray our new Conservative hero?

Inevitably, Palin's humanity was revealed; she was not perfect. But still, Palin is extraordinary and will be a tough act to follow.

Allow me to recap. Immediately following her amazing VP nomination acceptance speech, the media/the left went crazy consumed with hatred and a desperate desire to destroy her. Why? Palin was a beautiful, smart, articulate and strong woman who boldly touted traditional values and a love for God, family and country – all of which are anathemas to the left.

No tactic was too low to discredit Palin. Thus, the left even attacked Trig, Palin's Down Syndrome child.
http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/15/wayne-brady-criticized-for-making-fun-of-trig-palins-down-syndrome/

Women in my family parroted the media talking point that Palin was bad for women. I thought, "You idiots, Palin is the epitome of everything the left/Democrats claim to desire for women – successful inside and outside of the home."

While governor of Alaska, the left tried to drown Palin in lawsuits. Palin resigned to save her state from the cost and aggravation. The left's mantra was Palin is a quit-er and republicans/conservatives joined their chorus.

Another thing the left successfully did to discredit Palin was to brand her "stupid." Who among us could survive every word out of our mouth being judged from a point of view that you are stupid? Meanwhile, Obama ran around saying America has 57 states and the media completely ignored this faux pas, along with several others by Obama.

Despite relentless attacks by hostel interviewers, in every TV interview, Palin always stood strong, boldly touting Conservatism. Man, you got to love this remarkable woman.

Also, completely ignored is Palin's tremendous charisma which I witnessed first hand on numerous occasions. We launched one of our Tea Party Express national bus tours in Searchlight Nevada – a huge dust bowl. Palin was our keynote speaker. Twenty-five thousand patriots attended with many camping out the night before to reserve their spot. Through the windows of our Tea Party Express bus as we arrived, I watched seniors who parked a mile away using walkers to make their way to the event.

The admiration for Palin felt a little like the scene in the Bible in which a woman said if I can just touch the hem of His garment, I will be made whole. In all of my 400 tea parties and 9 tours across America, no one, I repeat, no one affected audiences like Sarah Palin.

When this new conservative voice emerges on the scene, will we stand behind our hero no matter what, barring something immoral or criminal? Or, will we expect our guy or gal to be the second coming of Jesus. Have we learned something from the Republican/Conservative betrayal of Palin and their passivity and culpability in the media's viscous vile destruction of her image?

Sarah Palin, on behalf of We The People, I wish to thank you for your profile in courage, trumpeting Conservatism (God, family and country).

There's a joke.  Limbaugh, one of the vilest men on earth, using the words god, family, and country, as if it meant something to him.

As for Sarah P. She's been a joke and an embarrassment to the country since the first day she appeared on the scene. Good riddance to the worst person to ever be on the political podium.  Hopefully losing her spot on Fox will be the end of America, and the world, having to put up with her continuous stupidity.

And there are those on the nat'l stage from your party which have no business being there. Vulgar attacks toward women you may not like reveals your lack of character.

Do vulgar attacks on Michelle Obama or Hillary Clinton or Nancy Pelosi also reveal a lack of character on the part of conservatives?

For those who accuse Palin of being a quitter..Barack Obama sent more than 30 lawyers to Alaska to dig up dirt to trash Palin. As soon as McCain chose her to be his VP, Chicago politics in action....

Baloney.  She saw more money in speaking engagements and Faux News and writing books.  Unfortunately for her, her 15 minutes seem to be about up.

In other words, Palin chose to resign from, chose not to renew her annual contract with, Fox so she could be a commentator and speaker on other networks - which she could not do with the non-compete clause of her contract. A standard contract. 

Last I heard, when you are offered a contract renewal and decide to decline it, is not the same thing as being canned (ie, fired) - like former Fox News host Glenn Beck, who actually had high ratings, or former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann, who did not - neither of whom had a choice in the matter, and were NOT offered contract renewals, but rather, were asked to leave in the middle of their contract terms. 

It would be helpful if this liberal (is there any other kind?) Huffington Post commentator got their facts straight, and at least tried to have a neutral opinion and an open mind when evaluating this piece of news.

Other sources call this story, "Palin Chooses Not to Renew Fox News Contract".

What a difference word choice makes.

I"m not reading anything that states that Fox news verfied it made her a new offer and she turned it down, which is of course very possible given her popularity with some.

However, everything I've ever read about her indicates that she's just a huge pain in the ass to deal with.  So maybe it was just easier to let her go.

Haha!  That is a good one.  Though my hunch is this move more resembled a "firing" than a "quitting."
