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.

I’d love to see her do periodic planned outdoor speaking events, open to the public. Rile up the socialists and their media toadies. And I would dearly love to see her do a series of boom goes the night stick exposes against BoomTown corruption on both sides of the aisle.

Opinionator on January 27, 2013 at 10:58 PM

Hopefully she’ll read this HA thread. I don’t know what she has planned, but it will be about getting good Candidates supported and elected. Maybe she’ll work with Jim DeMint. His Conservative Fund looks for good Conservative Senate Candidates and supports them. They raised a lot of money from voters; Cruz/Rubio/Mandel and others.

Whatever Sarah does, we need to support her. I think she’s going to be at CPAC this year, right?

steebo77 on January 27, 2013 at 11:32 PM

Indeed. And to think, I was so close. There are plenty of carp,, trout, salmon, flat fish, sun fish, bottom fish, bass (large and small mouth), whichever your preference. But when one finds that one special bluegill, nothing else will ever satisfy them. Fry it in cracker crumbs, grill it with lemon, roast it over the camp fire, no matter. The only taste you crave is Lepomis macrochirus. There is only one fish in my sea (and by sea, I speak figuratively of course, as my love resides in fresh water). Nonetheless. I am sMITTen for her. And need her. And my hook remains baited, awaiting that long sought after bite.

Ice is worse than snow. We are going to have mid 40′s, then 50′s for the next couple of days. For Ohio, that is unusual. Of course rain with those temps, but that’s better than ice & single digits!

Asking because her schtick is so… 2011 (she can’t run etc., meaning “Palin isn’t even allowed to compete”).

A precision: at that stage, I really don’t care about a future Palin (no-)candidacy since I’m not even sure there will be another Presidential election cycle in the US.

Anti-Control on January 28, 2013 at 10:02 AM

Yes, maybe. I’ve just noticed that her whole argument re. Palin rests on one obsessive incantation: “This woman MUSTN’T run”.

It’s exactly what we heard from all corners of the Establishment during the whole 2011 year (and it started one week before the 2010 victory, in which Palin played a major part).

Again, I don’t know (and even care for) what Palin will do in 2015. But why shouldn’t she compete? Because she might win?

That said, I hope she sticks to her recent words to Bannon and don’t ever let them decide for us who will be the nominee.

Go for the jugular, Sarah!

BabyGrace on January 28, 2013 at 10:10 AM

Listen, I was an original Palinista. I knew and liked her way before you Johnny-come-lately’s jumped on the bandwagon. Most of you are just wannabes. In the spring of 2008 I hoped and predicted she would be chosen. No joke.

In the years since, I have come to the OBVIOUS conclusion that Sarah Palin is not ready for primetime. You guys need to stop treating her like an infant and making excuses for her at every turn.

In closing, as this thread dies out and is relegated to the dustbin of the archive section, please remember to try to resist Sarah Palin’s encouragement to resent and oppose other conservatives. Palin loves to feed off division, but don’t give in.

Many of you are already mad at Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Fox News and now HotAir (?!) over something Palin-related or because they have succeeded or may succeeded where Palin failed. Palin does more harm than good.

The Tea Party does NOT need this woman to act as its self-appointed spokesperson.

It is time to let go of Sarah Palin. Take a deep breath. You all can do it. Let’s move forward together. Unified. Never again willing to settle for an incompetent candidate that constantly embarrasses us and who we have to keep making excuses for.
