Feb 8, 2013 Comments Off on Lean Leftward?: Fox News Parts Ways With Dick Morris Two Weeks After Parting Ways With Sarah Palin Chuck Biscuits
Excerpted from The Ticket: Less than two weeks after Fox News announced its decision not to renew the contract for former Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin, the network has decided to part ways with paid conservative pundit Dick Morris, too.
A spokeswoman for Fox News confirmed that Morris’ contract was up and the News Corp.-owned network would not be renewing it. He had been a contributor to Fox News since 1998.
Morris, who predicted a “landslide” victory for Mitt Romney during the 2012 presidential election, was ridiculed in the wake of President Barack Obama’s decisive victory on Nov. 6.
“I’ve got egg on my face,” Morris wrote on FoxNews.com. “The key reason for my bum prediction is that I mistakenly believed that the 2008 surge in black, Latino, and young voter turnout would recede in 2012 to ‘normal’ levels. Didn’t happen.”
