Earlier today in a post titled: With Friends Like Fox News Palin Is Better Off With Her Enemies, I wrote about how Fox News is out to take down Governor Palin. I wrote (Emphesis added):
Fox wants Palin out but they don’t want to suspend her contract because by doing so they’ll be conceding that she’s a serious contender. Fox won’t do anything that would lend her credibility. They just want her to resign. The tactic now is to makePalin’s life as difficult and as miserable as possible until Palin just gets frustrated and leaves on her own citing irreconcilable differences. Things are going to get worse. Fox is about to up the ante and it’s going to get ugly.
It didn’t take long. After meeting with Governor Palin yesterday Fox decided to up the ante today. Talking to Carl Cameron on his show today, Shepard Smith announced that fox will now be referring to Governor Palin as “Contributor Palin”.
Our cheif political correspondent, Carl Cameron live tonight, Seacoast New Hampshire. Carl, you are at a what a Clambake with Governor Palin, I should say Contributor Palin
Later at the 1:08 mark, Shep officially runs with the new title:
Surprised at all Carl, you have been doing this for decades, surprised at all that “Contributor Palin” would take this shot at the same day that the former Massachusetts Governor announced his candidacy.
So Governor Palin is Contributor Palin now, while Romney is the Former Governor of Massachusetts. Nice.
If you had any doubts of what Fox is up to this should put all those doubts to rest. Fox is out to sabotage Governor Palin. It’s time Palin got out of there, fast.
