According to Yahoo’s television reporting, controversial political commentator Dick Morris has lost his political analyst’s job at the Fox News Channel. Things haven’t looked good for Morris since the commentator erroneously and stubbornly predicted a huge landslide victory for former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney – right up to the last minute as votes were being counted on Nov. 6, 2012. Morris’ appearances on Fox since President Barack Obama defeated Mitt Romney have been gone from few and far between to virtually non-existent.
To make it official, a Fox News network spokesperson, Dana Klinghoffer, said on Tuesday that Dick Morris’ contract with Fox was not going to be renewed by the television network.
Beyond the gross miscalculation of the outcome of the presidential election of 2012, Morris has been heavily criticized for having put paid advertising on his web site which involved candidates that he spoke about on Fox.
Morris is scheduled to appear on CNN’s Piers Morgan talk show on Wednesday evening to talk about politics.
