Sarah Palin Out At Fox News

10:14 am - 01/26/2013
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.

Yes! Both Sasha and Malia looked incredibly stylish. *clothes envy*

Her 15 minutes have finally ended. This is glorious news.

Now, she's going to try to find a way to revive those 15 minutes. She better move her ass to satellite radio.

Couldn't happen soon enough. FINALLY.

I hear there's spaces left in Glenn Beck's 'totally not a commune' Objectivist theme park.

Good. Jayzus. Please go away and bury yourself in the snow, now.

Did she ever actually do anything at FoxNews?

They seemed to call her in if Fox News wanted to throw a tantrum over something.

Nope. It's probably the reason they stopped having her on so much.

A+ for 'N Sync reference!

I was never an NSync fan, but for whatever reason I love "Bye Bye Bye" jokes.

CNN is pathetic and desperate enough to hire her.

Not crying any tears for her.

Also, whenever I see the title of this post I keep thinking it says "Sarah Palin coming out" and my face looks like this: o_O

Would love it if she did let the door smack her in the ass on the way out... :)
