Fox News Suspends Gingrich and Santorum
For some reason, Fox News is trying to look they have ethics and scruples today: Fox News suspends Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum.
Fox News has suspended contributors Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum effective immediately until they decide whether to run for president.
Anchor Bret Baier announced on air late Wednesday morning that the network “has suspended its contributor arrangements” with Gingrich and Santorum for the next 60 days.
Both, Baier said, “have signaled possible runs for the presidency” and it “is Fox policy” for them to be suspended.
It might be funny if it didn’t reek of corruption. They gave Gingrich and Santorum platforms to promote themselves relentlessly for years, and paid them for it, and now suddenly Fox News is having an attack of responsibility?
And what about Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, and John Bolton? We’re not supposed to notice them, I guess.
