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.

she also never backed off on the meme that she was targeted by Sarah by using “crosshairs”
renalin on January 30, 2013 at 10:47 PM

I was not aware of that. I’m not going to be harsh on her for anything since she has went thru so much. There are too many others that are much more hateful imo. I don’t recall her saying anything against Palin prior to that shooting tho.

Has anyone figured out the formula for news commentary here? It seems to be one topic on and on. It kind of helps morale when you hear that the good guys have won one.

This is from this afternoon.

http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/31/another-plaintiff-beats-obama-hhs-abortion-mandate-in-court/

So far there have been 10 injunctions granted, and only four denied.

http://www.becketfund.org/hhsinformationcentral/

Today there are 44 cases and over 130 individuals representing hospitals, universities, businesses, schools, and people all speaking with one voice to affirm the freedom of religion guaranteed in the Constitution.

Becket Fund is keeping up with all of them, no matter who is representing the cases.

There are other things slipping in under the radar. Most of us can all chew gum and walk at the same time. A little variety would be nice.

I’ve been thinking (or pondering, if you will), I know, that’s always a dangerous thing, lol.

But… What’s happening? Why are so many of us still here? Why have we landed in Sarah’s Gulch™?

This is new, right? Or, is it?

I’ve never followed a thread into the vault before. Sure, I’ve responded to a few headline threads one or two bumps into oblivian but only when they get pushed off the front page just after I’ve commented.

This seems different. Something is in the air. Correct me if I’m wrong but has this happened before? Now, I’m repeating. I’m just fascinated by this. The Tea Party really did just spring up simultaneously all around the country. Is this something similar? (Of course, on a smaller scale.)

Bmore did a check and in the short time he posted a link, 26 views. So, there are more of us than just the Chatty Cathy (Me) and the few others that are posting. We aren’t letting go. Why?

It would have been Andrew Breitbart’s birthday today so we remember “The Happy Warrior” who stood strong and unafraid to speak and expose the Left. We hope he is and always will be a guiding light for those of us who believe in truthtelling… in spite of the lies of the main stream media. We will do our best to honor his memory and fight like hell to BE BREITBART…… #WAR

While her next scheduled appearances aren’t political, it’s hard to imagine her abandoning the arena. Predicting Palin, however, should never be undertaken as a career move, especially if one’s income would be tied to being accurate.

very true. but sometimes past actions can indicate future actions. 2009′s first speeches were not politcal either. they firmed up her base then she was able to move forward. might be the same formula after all it worked will enough in 2009 and 2010.
