She can’t quit this. Fox News dumps Sarah Palin

The Queen of Quit can look forward not to trips on Air Force One but increasing irrelevance. The only trips she will be getting are those enjoyed by her other friends.

As Trump has ridden a media wave to the top of the GOP field, the decline in media coverage has resulted in Sarah Palin’s poll number with Republicans being sliced in half from nearly 20% to currently 10%. Trump’s coverage has been fueled by morning talk shows and Fox News, but since Palin refuses to appear on other networks for interviews, she is completely dependent on Fox News for her coverage.

Her Fox News dependency would never have been a problem, but Palin made one critical mistake. She crossed Roger Ailes.

Sarah Palin’s Fox News airtime decline can be traced back to one incident, blood libel. According to New York Magazine, Roger Ailes told Sarah Palin not to post the blood libel video, but Palin went rogue and bit the hand that feeds her. After this she was a lot less visible on Fox, and now a few months later, she has been replaced by Donald Trump.


Her decline was made obvious by the lack of media coverage generated for her disaster of an event in Wisconsin, that is more infamous for Tea Party thuggery than notable for anything that Palin had to say. Team Palin has always relied on the media coverage that they generated from complaining about the media, but most other outlets have followed FNC’s lead, and banished Palin to second class status. Ironically, it doesn’t seem to matter to Fox that polls show Obama crushing both Palin and Trump by almost equal margins.

Gretchen Carlson made it official today. Fox News is off the Sarah Palin bandwagon, and now backing Donald Trump


Plain was going to make a comment but she quit half way through.

Fox has a new baby now.
