Report: Palin parts ways with Fox News

posted at 6:51 pm on January 25, 2013 by Allahpundit

Her choice, not theirs, according to a source who spoke to RCP.

After a three-year run as a paid contributor to the nation’s highest-rated cable news channel, Sarah Palin and FOX News have cut ties, according to a source close to the former Alaska governor.

“It’s 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.”

The source declined to say whether Palin would pursue a television contract with another news network, such as CNN.

Not surprising given what happened last year at the convention, although the Times claims she and Fox were negotiating a new contract as recently as last week. Maybe she has another offer on the table that’s sweeter than theirs?

My first thought when I read the RCP piece was that Mark Begich is up for reelection next year and is already preparing for a strong conservative challenge, but NRO’s Robert Costa tweets some skepticism:

I thought challenging Begich, a weak blue incumbent in a very red state, was her best bet back to political office, but maybe she’s transitioned to Arizona now. (Costa hears that she’s still occasionally in touch with Joe Miller, who appears to be planning to challenge Begich himself.) If not politics, then what? Hard to believe she’d trade Fox for CNN. Maybe … Glenn Beck’s network, The Blaze? It had 300,000 online subscribers as of last summer and must have many more now, especially since Dish Network started airing it in September. And Beck’s aggressively trying to promote it, from making a bid on Current TV to gain a platform on basic cable to opening foreign bureaus in hopes of becoming a sort of libertarian alternative to Fox. She’d instantly raise the network’s profile and bring in new viewers. And there’s plenty of room on the programming schedule for her: The channel currently airs from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET with a two-hour block free from 2-4 so they could give her her own show if that’s what she has in mind. If I had to bet, I’d bet that’s where she goes.

There seems to be a lot of gentleman readers here that appear to associate inarticulate women with self pleasure.

I didn’t realize Palin was being objectivised in that way. But it sure does explain some of the Palin worship.

Sarah Palin’s been known to quit things from time to time so this should come as no surprise.

At least she wasn’t embroiled in scandal before she threw in the towel, quit, and walked away this time.

I guess whatever Sarah Palin has contrived to fill that deep inky black void that can only be filled by scads of money and grandiose helpings of attention is a better schtick than FOX.

I wonder what it will be she starts and quits next.

Stay tuned, kids!

Sarah’s back and on the hunt. The RINOtards over at NRO are already frightened, I see. Remember, they are the ones who sold us on Project ORCA and Mitt Romney, the Next Sure Thing.

Good Times are coming for Allah, methinks. They ought to lift Jailbreak’s ban, just to juice the Palin threads. Her trolling was classic.

Face it, Bradky and Bishop are just sort of limp and emasculated when it comes to Sarah. They are recycling all the 2010 insults. RomneyWorship took all their credibility away from them and they need to get fitted for a new pair o’ clown shoes.

Seriously, though. Palin left FNC because she knew it was on the wane. I don’t think she’s going to Beck because she thinks Glenn is unstable, flighty, and was a supporter of Romney last fall. I think she looks at Beck as an opportunist.

Unlike Allah, I think she’s going back into Alaskan politics to get back into the National stage. NOT Arizona politics. I don’t think Costa knows what he’s talking about. Bristol wouldn’t have moved back to AK if Mom was relocating south. But the people Costa is talking to are not people who are close to Palin, so he knows nothing.

Fox News did more for Palin than Palin did for Fox News. Truth be told, her “analysis” for Fox was never any good. Nice lady, but an uninteresting, amateurish analyst.

Palin had become an afterthought in the last year, anyway. Kind of sad that she let her political prospects go down the tubes. Also sad that she kind of proved her critics right when she quit half way through her first term and then failed to impress at Fox News.

Would have liked to have seen more from her.

Maybe she and Newt Gingrich, who also threw a hissy fit when he left Fox, can now team up on CNN.

When I heard some of her first speeches she was literally painful to listen to; her voice had a “fingernails on chalkboard” element. And that was before I knew diddly about her positions and the woman herself.

But she got WAY better over time. Like a hundred times better.

she resigned 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.

It’s the Romneybots around here trying to lecture people about how toxic Palin is I can’t stand. They should all be tarred, feathered, and run out of town on a rail after the bill of goods they sold the Party and the rank and file. Mitt Romney was a nice guy, but his campaign was the most incompetent gang of political war criminals since, well, Dole-Kemp ’96. How DARE any one of these Romneybot clowns lecture me or anyone else about Sarah Palin after what they did last fall.

Palin knows she would be a bigger flop of a presidential candidate than Rick Perry was. She will never run. Another failed campaign would kill off most of the remaining political influence she has left.

I have to tell you the irony of that hit me like a ton of bricks, why you ask, we may well be fishing like that for our food if we keep going in the direction we are.

Now back to chumming, say, you think she could be like the second coming of Barry Goldwater? Maybe with a Cody Lundin edge?

I try to tell myself that our system of government can’t be ruined by one person and that is true but there seems to be an endless supply of dumbasses on both sides. I’m starting to hope for no grandchildren after all.

er “KNOWS HOW TO WIN!!!!!!!” Why should we listen to anything these toxic Mittbot losers have to say?

No, Dewey/Bricker, that for trivia fans, was the race in FDR’s fourth term, except Dewey was more energetic.

What changed, her voice or your ears?

Cindy Munford on January 25, 2013 at 7:35 PM

Neither. What do you want me to say? That is the start of her campaign for 2016? That she will ride to this nation’s rescue and save us from impending socialism? That this time she is really unshackled to do for the country what only she was called by God to do?!?

The same four people commenting over and over does not mean that a topic is popular. Didn’t you learn that when not a single Palin post from last year made it in the top 20?

bluegill on January 25, 2013 at 7:44 PM

oh man, let’s talk about who donated how much to SarahPAC

a $20.12 donation to SarahPAC was the only political donation Jeddite made during the 18-month+ campaign season. /TRUFAX

Sarah Palin’s been known to quit things from time to time so this should come as no surprise.

At least she wasn’t embroiled in scandal before she threw in the towel, quit, and walked away this time.

I guess whatever Sarah Palin has contrived to fill that deep inky black void that can only be filled by scads of money and grandiose helpings of attention is a better schtick than FOX.

I wonder what it will be she starts and quits next.

Stay tuned, kids!

SD Tom on January 25, 2013 at 7:23 PM

Firstly, she didn’t re-up. Contract ended. Maybe get your mom to help you with the difference between “quitting” and “not re-signing”.

Secondly, what do you have against someone earning money? Only liberals have issues with people earning money.

Are you a liberal?

Is a Palin thread sufficient cause for the official and unofficial Romney sock puppets to be reactivated?

steebo77 on January 25, 2013 at 7:42 PM

Yeah, because they were in hibernation getting ready to pimp Rubio.

FAILING TO EXTEND YOUR CONTRACT AT THE END OF THE TERM OF THE CONTRACT IS BEING A DAMN DIRTY QUITTER!!!!!! CHANGING JOBS IS JUST BEING A DAMN DIRTY QUITTER!!!!!!!

Really? I did not know that. It’s fascinating what you can learn on Palin threads. Maybe going home at the end of the day is being a quitter too?

Naw, yer all wrong, she’s going to take the Job as the Donald’s chief editor at the fundamentally reformed New York Times.

Agree completely.

Admire the woman, supported her in 2008, but am looking elsewhere for a presidential candidate.

ddrintn on January 25, 2013 at 7:44 PM

Rubio in ’16 would be an even worse humiliation than Wrongney in ’12.

For God’s sake can we not even find a YOUNG white male to run?!

bluegill on January 25, 2013 at 7:44 PM

There weren’t that many last year. There were dozens and dozens of Romney posts that featured maybe 30 comments from the same 5 or 6 Mittler Youths.

ddrintn on January 25, 2013 at 7:46 PM

It’s the Romneybots around here trying to lecture people about how toxic Palin is I can’t stand….
victor82 on January 25, 2013 at 7:39 PM

What is so truly strange about the Palin lovers here is how they assume people who criticize Palin (or the people who mindlessly gush over her) are Romney or Paul people.

Quite frankly, Romney sucked for much discussed reasons, McCain (whom she chose to run with) sucks even harder, and Ron Paul is a senile fool.

The problem is that you can add Palin to that parade of terribles, but you refuse to acknowledge it. She. Is. Terrible as an advocate for conservationism. TERRIBLE.

If you care about conservatism or libertarianism, you ought to care enough to demand people who can spread the good word, not people who stare into cameras like Bambi on the interstate.

Anything else is hero worship and vanity. And seeing how the left does that with Obama, you’d think that people on the right would know better….

Just how many more morons are out there? I really, REALLY wish they would all face same baseless accusations and be forced into financial ruin like Palin was.

Keeping fingers crossed.

It’s almost like Palin wasn’t the primary focus of January 1 – November 6, 2012.

GET IT? “PRIMARY”? /kneeslap

Sarah enjoys the cash and the limelight mostly fueled by her physical attractiveness. She is a curiosity nothing more.

Was Governor; quit that.

Was Alaskan; apparently quit that too.

She is a nitwit with an annoying voice.

More than that she is a charlatan.
