Popular Palin parts ways with Fox News

| Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013, 8:08 p.m.

Fans of Sarah Palin will have to look a little harder to find their favorite vice presidential candidate-turned-media personality on the airwaves in 2013. Palin will no longer be a contributor on Fox News, the network said on Friday.

It was not clear whether the breakup was mutual, but in Palin's first interview since parting ways with Fox, the former governor of Alaska told Breitbart News that fellow conservatives should follow her lead and “jump out of the comfort zone.”

Palin, who for three years had been one of the network's most popular personalities, said, “We can't just preach to the choir. ... The message of liberty and true hope must be understood by a larger audience.”

What's next?

Palin told Breitbart News that the “door is wide open.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
