Sarah Palin no longer will be a commentator with Fox News, after three years of employment with cable news company, according to a report released last night from the Washington Post. Palin was the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, who then proved to be a controversial figure on Fox News in her limited time on air.
The Post quotes "a person familiar with the discussions between Fox and Palin" as saying the split was amicable. Bill Shrine, the executive vice president of Fox News, stated the network enjoyed its association with Palin and wished her the best.
However, the Daily Beast reports that Palin was offered just a fraction of her original $1 million annual salary according to "people familiar with the situation." The Daily Beast also points out that Palin has appeared less and less on Fox News, and that Palin went to Facebook to complain about cancelled appearances during the Republican National Convention.
No one knows what Palin has planned next. Fox News is the largest media platform for conservative voices, and Palin's political career seemingly ended when she resigned less than halfway through her second term as governor of Alaska.
