The Governor is officially no longer a contributor for Fox News. She will remain "focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion." You can read more here.

You don’t have to be a Palin supporter to believe the accounts provided by sources close to the Governor. Fox News and Rogers Ailes have never hesitated to slam former contributors on-or-off the record (e.g., Newt Gingrich). Fox News and Roger Ailes would never let Palin sources claim that the Governor was the one who walked away without an aggressive response…..unless what the Palin sources are claiming is true.

In any event, what’s your reaction to this news? There was a time when her leaving Fox News would have set off a celebration from Barrow, Alaska to Miami, Florida because it would have meant that another event was soon to occur. It’s not so clear now what’s the next chapter as we’re over a year and a half away from the 2014 midterms and over three and a half years away from 2016. We now await the Governor’s PAC numbers from the final month and a half of 2012 as the next piece of news. So who’s going to be the Governor’s first interviewer of 2013?
