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. During the battle between President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney, the former Clinton advisor had been strongly predicting a big loss for the incumbent. Morris didn’t waste much time moving on from FNC. Earlier today, he announced via Twitter that he would be making an appearance on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight on Wednesday. That will be the first time the conservative has appeared on CNN since 2002. Morris isn’t the only big name contributor departure from the top rated news network. FNC recently parted ways with former GOP VP candidate Sarah Palin after three years.
Morris of course famously predicted a Romney landslide which proved to be perhaps the most inaccurate prediction imaginable. After the election he was such an embarrassment that Sean Hannity had him on for a public spanking (“People are furious with you right now.”), during which Morris tried desperately to backpedal and blamed the outcome of the election on Hurricane Sandy and the fact that the media stopped covering Benghazi.
What I found interesting is that Karl Rove, who made a total ass out of himself on election night by not allowing Fox to call the election for Obama until well after every other network had, has been re-signed to a multi-year deal.
I guess being wrong at Fox News is not the real issue, they are wrong all of the time, but the REAL problem is being both wrong AND stupid. And who was more wrong and stupid than Dick Morris and Sarah Palin?
