Fox News officially announced that it has “parted ways”

On Friday, Fox News officially announced that it has “parted ways” with Sarah Palin, and will not renew her contract as a contributor.

By Jillian Rayfield

The New York Times reports:

It was unclear whether the parting was Ms. Palin’s choice. Bill Shine, an executive vice president at Fox, said in a statement, “We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Governor Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors.”

As of last week, Ms. Palin remained in negotiations with Fox News about a new contract. Her original contract with the network started in January 2010 and ended this month.

Twitter, as expected, was delighted:

The Blaze and Al Jazeera in a bidding war for Palin.

Congratulations, Governor Palin. If I remember the Gospels correctly, Jesus only worked at Fox for a few years too. #tcot

Sarah Palin actually lasted longer as a Fox News talking head than she did as Governor of Alaska.

If Sarah Palin had a gun, her career would still be alive.

Anyone interested in hiring a charismatic speaker with limited governing experience in the Alaska area? Asking for a friend…

    Where oh where will we get our word salad? I always preferred mine in a “to go” container. That way it hit the dumpster faster on my way out.
