Fox News is not renewing its contract with Sarah Palin to provide commentary on their various shows after two years of giving her a great deal of air time. And Real Clear Politics is reporting that she was the one who rejected their contract renewal offer:
After a three-year run as a paid contributor to the nation’s highest-rated cable news channel, Sarah Palin and FOX News have cut ties, according to a source close to the former Alaska governor.
“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.”
And a study found that Fox News paid Palin $15.85 for every word she said. That means every “you betcha” was worth $31.70. Nice work if you can get it.
