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.

Reid would have won handily against Sue “Chickens for Checkups” Lowden, too. She was the establishment pick and she was every bit as nutty as Angle.

Polling showed Castle would have lost the general to Coons anyway, so the whole O’Donnell episode was pretty much irrelevant in the end.

Of the three seats you mention, only Missouri was really ever winnable. And Akin was the establishment pick, with the Tea Party/grassroots splitting their support between Brunner and Steelman.

NEW GOP STARS ECLIPSE SARAH PALIN
WHEN SARAH Palin burst on the national political scene in 2008, her star power was blinding to both her fans and detractors. Love her or hate her, the Alaska governor tapped by Senator John McCain to be his running mate became an instant celebrity. The GOP ticket’s loss that November seemed not to affect her popularity. Palin’s public appearances continued to draw enormous crowds, and her sometimes dubious political comments invariably were treated as news. When she joined Fox News in 2010 as a commentator at a salary of $1 million a year, her future in the limelight seemed limitless.

But every nova eventually fades, and Palin is no exception. Last week brought word that she and Fox would not be renewing their contract — the network had offered only a fraction of that seven-figure salary, Newsweek’s Howard Kurtz reported, and the two sides agreed to go their separate ways.

The writing was already on the wall for Palin as a cultural phenomenon once it became clear she wouldn’t run for president in 2012. As an important figure on the right, she has been supplanted by rising Republican stars. Her charisma has never been in doubt, but it wasn’t charisma alone that attracted those huge conservative audiences. It was also the belief that Palin had a fresh and compelling political message. That belief grew fainter with time, as Palin showed little interest in substantive debate.

Since President Obama’s reelection, the GOP has been engaged in a public conversation about its future. Some of the most intelligent voices in that conversation belong to conservative officeholders whom relatively few Americans had heard of at the height of Palin’s popularity — men and women like Bobby Jindal, Paul Ryan, Ted Cruz, and Nikki Haley. As media celebrities they may never achieve Palin’s dominance. But when it comes to political substance, they have already surpassed her.

No disrespect meant towards INC or yourself, but I can’t quite accept that as “the proper skeet shooting form”, without seeing her WHOLE form … all the way down to her feet.

I will point out that her shooting-eye (right eye, with her) IS looking across the top of the barrel properly.

The President’s shooting-eye (left eye, in his case) appears to be lower.

Excerpt of an article from the Canada Free Press: This was forwarded to me by a friend that I grew up with and knows Sarah very well. ~ Chuck Heath, Jr

The Real Truth About Sarah Palin — Ouch!

By Dewie Whetsell, Alaskan Fisherman.

The last 45 of my 66 years I’ve spent in a commercial fishing town in Alaska . I understand Alaska politics but never understood national politics well until this last year. Here’s the breaking point: Neither side of the Palin controversy gets it. It’s not about persona, style, rhetoric, it’s about doing things. Even Palin supporters never mention the things that I’m about to mention here.

1. Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats, because as soon as Palin took the Governor’s office away from a fellow Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the Republican’s “Corrupt Bastards Club” (CBC) and sent them packing. Many of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits The Democrats reacted by skipping around the yard, throwing confetti and singing, “la la la la” (well, you know how they are). Name another governor in this country that has ever done anything similar.

2. Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to protect the huge, giant oil companies here. So she constructed and enacted a new system of splitting the oil profits called “ACES.” Exxon (the biggest corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them, “don’t let the door hit you in the stern on your way out.” They stayed, and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy rich. Of course, the other huge international oil companies meekly fell in line. Again, give me the name of any other governor in the country that has done anything similar.

3. The other thing she did when she walked into the governor’s office is she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects, known as “pork.” She went through the list, took 85% of them and placed them in the “when-hell-freezes-over” stack. She let locals know that if we need something built, we’ll pay for it ourselves. Maybe she figured she could use the money she got from selling the previous governor’s jet because it was extravagant. Maybe she could use the money she saved by dismissing the governor’s cook (remarking that she could cook for her own family), giving back the State vehicle issued to her, maintaining that she already had a car, and dismissing her State provided security force (never mentioning – I imagine – that she’s packing heat herself). I’m still waiting to hear the names of those other governors.

4. Now, even with her much-ridiculed “gosh and golly” mannerism, she also managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a natural gas pipeline built which will be the biggest private construction project in the history of North America. No one else could do it although they tried. If that doesn’t impress you, then you’re trying too hard to be unimpressed while watching her do things like this while baking up a batch of brownies with her other hand.

5. For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a place called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they couldn’t start drilling. In truth they were holding it like an investment. No governor for 30 years could make them get started. Then, she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They protested and threatened court action. She shrugged and reminded them that she knew the way to the court house. Alaska won again.

6. President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources for electricity by 2025. Sarah went to the legislature and submitted her plan for Alaska to be at 50% renewable by 2025. We are already at 25%. I can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to style and persona. Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, look cool. But that’s just a cover-up. I’m still waiting to hear from liberals the names of other governors who can match what mine has done in two and a half years. I won’t be holding my breath.

By the way, she was content to return to Alaska after the national election and go to work, but the haters wouldn’t let her. Now these adolescent screechers are obviously not scuba divers. And no one ever told them what happens when you continually jab and pester a barracuda. Without warning, it will spin around and tear your face off. Shoulda known better.

You have just read the truth about Sarah Palin that sends the media, along with the Democrat party, into a wild uncontrolled frenzy to discredit her. I guess they are only interested in skirt chasers, dishonesty, immoral people, liars, womanizers, murderers, and bitter ex-presidents’ wives.

So “You go, Girl.” I only wish the men in Washington had your guts, determination, honesty, and morals.

I rest my case. Only FOOLS listen to the biased media.

Thats whats so nefarious yet so crucial to understanding how Sarah strikes at the psyche of the left. They know she is a threat to their very existence. She crosses cultural and socioeconomic boundaries.

people like bluegill have no life without Sarah. They are the remora of Sarah’s Place. I choose to coexist with them. In the end. they follow us.

the reality is, if we continue on the path we are on, the moochers will overtake the takers.

Sarah awakens the makers, from those that punch a clock or to those who don’t. but in the the end have to provide for their families without the governments assitance.

thats what baracks government is missing. any sort of responsibility to those who in the end, we must give our hard earned dollars to.

i’m going gault regardless. its all about my family now.if Sarah goes, then i go. if not. then i stay put. and hoard.

It’s odd that no one else is mentioning the glitch. Hold down the fort. Later…

Death penalty = Bad

Abortion in 3rd trimester = Good

Waterboarding = Bad

Droning = Good

Ain’t lib logic grand?…

Yes, Curious Boy has grown. He takes after the one who sired him. Asymmetrical just like Dad. I put him back up so you could see him. ; )

Yes, Curious Boy has grown.

Bmore on February 6, 2013 at 12:18 AM

He sure has. He looks very healthy. I’d guess the asymmetrical rack would make him easier to spot. That was nice of him. :)

…FO dipshit…why don’t you go back a couple of dozen pages and see who started the ball rolling…

KOOLAID2 on February 5, 2013 at 8:32 PM

Nice! I’ve read every comment on this thread – many here started many balls rolling.

My opinion stands: not cool.

Opinionator on February 6, 2013 at 10:33 AM

gotta say that bluegill was going to find us no matter what. you get that right? THEY ARE FOR THE MOST PART PAID TROLLS who spout the same crap day in day out and scour the net for anything on Sarah.

renalin on February 5, 2013 at 9:14 PM

I am the first one (on this thread) who said I thought she/it was paid.

We had a unique opportunity for ‘peace and quiet’ since we spilled off the first page. I doubt most people, including trolls, follow threads into the vault. I know I never do, and I’ve been around here for many, many years.

Perhaps she’d have come back on her own without being advised we continued on? Perhaps not.

Whatever. I’d prefer the company of like minded souls *for once* without all the noise.

2,580.

steebo77 on February 6, 2013 at 1:10 PM

419 to go!

KOOLAID2 on February 6, 2013 at 2:30 PM

Don’t give Steebo any ideas.

wolfsDad on February 6, 2013 at 2:54 PM

Speaking of ideas… Now that the place is aired out, how do we get people back here?

…remind them!

KOOLAID2 on February 6, 2013 at 7:53 PM

KOOLAID2 on February 6, 2013 at 7:53 PM

Discreetly, of course.

Maybe we should get secret decoder rings?

steebo77 on February 6, 2013 at 9:52 PM

Just saying “Sarah’s Gulch” will bring back the stinkfish. Hmmm…

Fallon on February 6, 2013 at 10:03 PM

Top Chef is in Alaska for the finale. They’re in Juneau this episode. Hubby and I went to Alaska on a cruise from Seattle for our 30th anniversary this summer. It was amazing.

Next episode they’ll be cooking for Gov. Parnell. Given that the show airs on Bravo, I fully expect at least one Palin joke/jab/snotty comment.

steebo77 on February 6, 2013 at 9:52 PM

……no need!…that one still wears a MOOD RING…its always in a bitchymood…I promised I would TROLLCOTT it down here…when you ignore them…it improves the whole atmosphere when they get nutty…to outright Wall-nut banging nutty… from being ignored…and you know you’re grinning ear from ear… when everybody plays along! (:->)

Bmore on February 7, 2013 at 12:03 AM

they may have the watches. but we have the time.

renalin on February 7, 2013 at 7:44 AM

Aw, dammit, just lost a post.

steebo77 on February 6, 2013 at 11:05 PM

Yup, Colicchio will roll his eyes at some point. Already heard a snider remark on a tour bus there. Guide was playing to the Seattle crowd, no doubt. He said Sarah spent millions on the governor’s mansion and they elected Scott Parnell so they could reuse the monogrammed towels. I growled at him and proceeded to kill at an impromptu Alaskan trivia contest. He kept saying, who answered that? LOL I still have a pretty good memory, good with facts and dates.

Yeah, Bravo is run by the Gay Mafia. I still like a few of their shows, meh. I’d put Tammy Bruce’s Tams up against them any day, lol. Now, that’s a fun group of people.

Mornin’, Renalin. Top your coffee?

Fallon on February 7, 2013 at 7:53 AM

Hope I didn’t just overshare on QOTD….

Fallon on February 7, 2013 at 8:04 AM

Fallon on February 7, 2013 at 7:53 AM

renalin on February 7, 2013 at 8:13 AM

renalin on February 7, 2013 at 8:17 AM
