If they weren't so mean-spirited and downright hateful, I might feel sorry for Governor Palin's detractors. They were so insistent that FOX News had kicked her to the curb and refused to renew her contract because she was, you know, irrelevant, no good, washed up, not a serious commentator. You've heard the nonsense before. And no matter how many times we tried to help them out and clue them in that Governor Palin was the one to make the decision not to renew her contract--despite the fact that this was verified--they continued in their self-delusion because...well, because that's what haters do. Yes, it would be so easy to give them sympathy, these souls who are always wrong. How they handle the repeated disappointment is beyond me. They're certainly beside themselves today, as FOX has announced that Governor Palin has rejoined the network:
Via Business Wire:
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is rejoining FOX News as a contributor, announced Roger Ailes, Chairman and CEO of the network. Palin will appear on FOX News Channel’s (FNC) daytime and primetime programming, starting with FOX & Friends on Monday, June 17th. She will also contribute to FOX Business Network (FBN).
“The power of FOX News is unparalleled. The role of FOX News in the important debates in our world is indispensable. I am pleased and proud to be rejoining Roger Ailes and the great people at FOX.”
In making the announcement, Ailes said, “I’ve had several conversations with Governor Palin in the past few weeks about her rejoining FOX News as a contributor. I have great confidence in her and am pleased that she will once again add her commentary to our programming. I hope she continues to speak her mind.”
Author of two New York Times best-selling books, Palin rose to national prominence during the 2008 President election and has since made a mark as a political commentator. From January 2010 to January 2013, she served as a contributor for FNC. In 2010, Palin was named to Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” list.
Governor Palin stated, "The power of FOX News is unparalleled. The role of FOX News in the important debates in our world is indispensable. I am pleased and proud to be rejoining Roger Ailes and the great people at FOX."
