Tapper later asked Palin why she left Fox News. Palin said Tapper should ask Fox, before going on to say that the network did not renew her contract.

Tapper continued to push, saying, “it sounds like you experienced something.”

Palin responded:“I just — you know, it was time to part ways and, you know, get out there in, I guess, a more diverse arena to express views and to speak for the public, and that’s what I’ve been able to do now.”
