BREAKING: Governor Palin Not Renewing Contract with FOX News – Update: Tony Lee Weighs In

gov-palin-fox-news File Photo from The Examiner: "Gov. Palin Fires Away at Murkowski" on a Fox News Broadcast Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin did not renew her contract with Fox News, Scott Conroy, Real Clear Politics reported today, citing an anonymous source.

“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.”

Update by Stacy: Tony Lee weighs in:

A source close to Palin confirmed to Breitbart News that Palin declined FOX News’ offer to renew her contract, and the two parties seem to be parting amicably.

Bill Shine, an executive vice president at FOX News, said in a statement, “We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Governor Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors.”


Like she did at the Iowa State Fair in 2011, Palin impressed reporters with her impromptu interviews. However, because of her FOX News contract, Palin could not go on other cable and mainstream media networks to discuss politics, policy, and cultural issues. Now, she will able to talk on other networks besides FOX News.

Palin–since she now does not have a television contract–will also be free run for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016 if she so chooses.

      Isn’t it interesting that the folks here and Palinistas everywhere cheer this news while I am sure that the Left idiots are too.

        Definitely a strange irony.

         Thanks for giving me the idea for uninstalling the ‘FOX News App’ from my iPod Touch. Now I can put more songs on it.

        I Stand With Sarah Palin!!!

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        LOL!!!  Great, Elwanda!!

    • Esteban Rey

       Well I guess it’s all over now.  Time to shut down the Palin propaganda site. 

      • socon

         Mediaite?  I agree–they’re full of crap.

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Amen, Roomie!!

    Did Roger Ailes try to lowball Sarah with an offer? FNC makes like $700+ million in profit!

    • socon

       More likely they tried to control what she said.

    • heshtesh

      Just think if they made 10 times as much they could be tax exempt like GE. …….Very pleased for Sarah.

    love how david weigel thinks he’s relevant while palin is not. He proves his irrelevancy by wasting his time arguing with a nobody like me.

  • bongobear

    Doesn’t surprise me…the network has been treating her like dirt the past year or so.

  • Lennart Bilén

    Sarah Palin is free from the Fox News charade.
    Free to speak about life, and of all God has made.
    For the Cross is the crux
    when all else is in flux
    It’s a spirit filled fight, she is sent to persuade.

    • CharterOakie

      Excellent, LB!

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        Amen, Bro!!

      Need some real facts about Sarah over at AOL.   HELP

  • Nancy6

    That’s a shame.

    • socon

       For Fox, not Sarah.

  • DeeDEEthree

    This is great news and this is the part I like.  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.”

    • Banda31

      This is what we had been praying and asking for since last year and now it has happened. Praise God!. I’m very happy that she has parted ways with Fox. They treated her very badly during the election. Many times I had to trun off my TV for I did not want to watch Fox and I still do not watch Fox due to their past treatment of her. They were all shilling for Mitt Romney.

  • Steve_Flesher

    Silver lining my friends.  Now she’s free to do what she wants when she wants. 

    It clearly indicates that she was the dumper. 

    • alien4palin

      Yes!!! Agree 100%
      Sarah, bless her heart, consistently rise up for America when the time is right and always impeccable with her timing.

    • Isabel Matos

      When they hired Jedediah Bila I had a hunch it was to replace her. (sort of)

      • blueniner

        Yes and that is how the FOX Hole does it, they go t#t for tat, they hire Jedidiah, and then turn around and balance it with Dennis the Menace Kucininch thats how it works.

        • Isabel Matos

          Fair and balanced = Bipartisanship.  Very Rino.  Very Bush.

      • Jthom26837

         With all of the zaniess thing going on at FOX News, including knifing Sarah Palin, I personally think it would be apropriate to let Michele Bachmann as the new guest commentator there. Think about it. She could have Wayne Newton as her sidekick. Or, how about Glenn Beck? Perhaps that crap- weasle of a backstabbing rhino Ed Rollins.

    • cathnealon

      Will Palin still be a force against the regime’s march to Marxism now that she’s left the sellouts at Fox?

  • blueniner

    Finally,….. Sarah is now unshackled from that restrictive FOX contract, can you imagine, she had to get permission to go on Mark Levin, or Hannutys radio shows. FOX is now moving left, (their ratings prove it) and there is much more Sarah has to offer and get done. Way to go Sarah!

    • Budvarakbar

       I believe that the bushite Rubio has been on almost every night this week.  Fox has been moving left for at least 1-1/2 years.  Hopefully they will take a hit in ratings.

         Ah, a newcomer. Welcome aboard. I hope you meant Mary Jo Kopeckne search and rescue. Other than that, hey, jump in the water’s fine.

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      High Five, Niner!!!

  • Penny

    Yea, she’s irrelevant. It took like three minutes of her breaking with Fox to be announced for "Sarah Palin" to be trending number one on twitter.

    • Lakerfanalways

       Yep now THAT’S power..the left hates her yet she is the #1 trending topic on twitter..yeah irrelevant my butt cheek! Sarah Palin has power and the libs cant stand it

    My reaction to the news?   One word:  Good!


  • daisy_mae

    Very very good news!!!!  I don’t know how my esteem of this awesome patriot could rise any further but man, somehow it has!!!!!  Folks, I do my best in my neck of the woods for the freedom cause, but when it comes to the brilliance of the Governor, and her checkmate moves, I’m just along for the ride :)

  • felizarte

    This is truly heartening news.  She has finally unshackled herself, declared her true independence and ready to pick up the banner of true Americanism.  Long live the Spirit of 1776!

  • Isabel Matos

    Im not really sad.

    All that’s left is a GOP Rino/Establishment Network who answers to Soros and the Bushes. Im quite happy, in fact.

    • Jthom26837

       LOL!! :-)  Well, There’s Michele Bachmann to take Sarah’s place. Hell, every now and then, Michele could get Wayne Newton, or Glenn Beck to sit with. LOL!! :-)
