Palin meets with Fox News execs, still under contract with network


Recommended Posts

The Hill:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin ® met with executives from Fox News during her bus tour's stop in New York, and she remains under contract as a contributor with the network.

"Right now there is no change in her status with Fox News," said Bill Shine, the network's vice president of programming.

Palin's status as a paid contributor with the network has been a subject of scrutiny, especially since she launched a nationwide bus tour that has prompted speculation that she could enter the GOP field.
Fox suspended the contracts of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) and former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) after they took concrete steps toward running for president, such as working to form an exploratory committee.

At the start of her tour, Shine issued a similarly worded statement, but did not include the "right now" qualifier. “We’re not changing her status," he said last week.

Palin's meeting was a short pit stop during her bus tour, which is currently taking her and her family to various historic sites in the Northeast (as well as the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire).snip
