Fox News Drops Dick Morris


Morris totally tanked his prediction on November’s election, but I find his analyses more interesting than that of the liber-wacky Dennis Kucinich, who Fox News recently hired. In any case, Morris is out at Fox:

Long time contributor Dick Morris will no longer be a talking head on Fox News Channel. “His contract is up and we will not be renewing it,” a spokesperson for the news network confirmed today. A perpetual presence during last year’s Presidential election, Morris has not been seen on FNC since November 12.

A terribly off-base prediction for the presidential election probably isn’t what made Fox not want to re-sign Morris. If they had intolerance for bad calls they wouldn’t have re-upped Karl Rove.

Sarah Palin is out at Fox News as well. They offered her a contract renewal, but it was reportedly a fraction of the million-dollar-a-year deal she had before, and she turned it down. Hopefully a Senate run is in her future — be it in Alaska or Arizona.
