Sarah Palin’s contract with Fox News not renewed

Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska and vice presidential candidate, is parting ways with Fox News.

Her contract as a paid contributor has not been renewed with the cable news channel, reported the New York Times. A statement from an executive vice president at Fox, Bill Shine, read,“We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Governor Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors.”

RealClearPolitics reported that a source close to Palin said she was offered a contract but declined it.

As of last week, she and Fox were negotiating a possible new contract. She reportedly received $1 million per year as part of her former contract, although “Fox almost surely offered a lesser amount to Ms. Palin in the recent negotiations,” said the Times.

Relations between Palin and Fox CEO Roger Ailes have been rocky, reported the Huffington Post, and Ailes allegedly has privately called her “stupid.”

Now if we can just get NBC to get "less stupid" and sometimes CNN, plus a few others, then we'll have a handle on things:)

Whether less stupid means more good is yet to be determined.

I personally like Sarah Palin and think she has a certain crowd that she is very effective with. I just dont think she is very good as a commentator. I am always amused at the lefts attacks on fox news. Yes Fox leans right, but there are plenty of liberal points of view presented on fox news. I am gong to miss my favorite liberal (who was on fox a lot) Dennis Kucinich. Hate his politics overall, but probably was the most honest man in congress.

Now if we can get msnbc off the air. Chris Mathews will pee down that leg if a republican gets in office the next time. He will lay down on the floor and act like a baby with a fit if Obama is ever impeached. He is an ignorant baboon. Sarah makes more sense than anybody on the other Socialist networks.

she should go back to Alaska, do her utmost best to get Alaskans to agree to secede and use the oil and tourism business to sell to the world. Russians, Canadians, Norwegians and others could use Alaska for resupplying ports for their oilers plying through the Arctic Ocean. Hers and all Alaskans talent is wasted on the lower 48.

Ha, have you ever been to Alaska? A couple of the large cities are modern but for the most part it's like WV 50 years ago. I don't know what they do with all that oil money but they don't put it into roads or housing.

Having said that I still loved Alaska....but truth is truth.

Ha ha ha... I agree. It's not "news" anymore, mostly 24 hours of "opinions."

As for Sarah Palin, Al-Jazeera just acquired an American news network. Everyone has a price, and wouldn't that be a hoot.

The acquired a cable channel that used to be owned by Al Gore. Is that a surprise or what. I knew that idiot hated America. Maybe when our presidents term is up he can get a job there along with Jane Fonda and Michael Moore. Then Sundays morning church services lead by Jeremiah Wright. What a station that would be.

Hey stupid--Al Gore (and his partners) selling Current wasn't a big surprise. He made millions off the deal... dumping a financial liability. Capitalists all over America love free enterprise.

Sarah would fit in fine. She can talk about how strong Christian values (and not contraception) keeps your teenage daughter from getting pregnant before she's out of high school.

when a person is a Christian, that means said person does not have feelings. said christian turns into a robot. when a pothead, drunk or any does things like this he is a macho man but let a girl get knocked up christian or no shes a whore. that is a wonderful set of american values. now you're a christian you be perfect, let all the others do what comes naturally. Christian girls do not lose their ovaries and other such baby contraptions and they certainly don't lose their feelings which is the reason the concept of marriage was concepted but some don't wait. i have a daughter had a baby two weeks after she got married and i told her she don't have to marry if she doesn't want and anyone don't like it can kiss my grits. i love my daughter and granddaughter who incidently now is a 26 year old nurse and married. i love all the younguns and grandyounguns even though i don't approve of everything they do. It's their life and i let em live it.
