Fox says goodby to Sarah Palin
Sarah Palin has exhausted her second 15 minutes of fame at Fox. The once republican sweetheart has lost her allure. She simply could not effectuate the momentum Fox needed from her. She did not have a significant role in the recent presidential election that may have ignited further interest in the onetime political darling.
A star was born the moment John McCain introduced his running mate at the 2008 Republican convention. But like your mother always said it takes more than beauty to hold the audience. Sarah is an attractive woman that could not deliver beyond the extraneous package.
Her lack of experience showed while her ignorance on simple geography turned admiration into aversion.
Working at fox was a repeat of the original moment in the sun Palin shared with us. In the long run she did not offer anything of substance or value and her looks became verbose. Maybe your mother was right after all looks open doors but once inside you better have something to offer.
In an interview with conservative website Breitbart.com, Palin says the split was amicable.
“I encourage others to step out in faith, jump out of the comfort zone, and broaden our reach as believers in American exceptionalism,” she told the site. “That means broadening our audience. I’m taking my own advice here as I free up opportunities to share more broadly the message of the beauty of freedom and the imperative of defending our republic and restoring this most exceptional nation. We just can’t preach to the choir; the message of liberty and true hope must be understood by a larger audience.”
In a statement from Fox News, Executive Vice President for Programming Bill Shine said: “We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Gov. Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors.”
In August, Palin complained on Facebook that the network had canceled her appearances during the Republican National Convention.
“I’m sorry Fox cancelled all my scheduled interviews tonight because I sure wanted to take the opportunity on the air to highlight Sen. John McCain’s positive contributions to America, to honor him, and to reflect on what a biased media unfairly put him through four years ago tonight,” Palin wrote. “Granted, our honored and esteemed war hero has gone through much more than the liberal media can ever do to him in their efforts to harm this patriot.”
