When Mama Grifter’s mouth was muzzled by her handlers at FOX News, rendering her appearance at the Republic National Convention in Tampa, FL not needed, the Whore from Wasilla took to her Facebook to stupidly express her frustration with the decision. But her outburst highlights the often strained relationship between Mama Grifter and Rupert Murdock’s propaganda network.
Currently, Palin and FOX are in the early stages of an elaborate contract negotiation. Shockingly, Palin earns roughly $1 million per year from FOX which makes her the highest paid personality on the network. FOX executives are disappointed with her lackluster ratings and Palin’s outsized ego means she’s frustrated by FOX’s decision to not give her top billing on bookings. According to media sources, the relationship at times has gotten so bad that communication is conducted through Palin’s fish monger husband, Todd.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to determine Palin’s Facebook outburst didn’t help to endear her to the prickly Roger Ailes, who troop loyalty. Sources say Ailes has been frustrated with Palin’s refusal to fall in line. Palin ignored Ailes advice to remain quiet in the wake of the Gabrielle Giffords shooting in 2011. Palin had viciously put Ms. Giffords in rifle crosshairs on her website.
If I were a betting man, I would not bet on a contract extension for Palin at FOX. Her current contract expires in January, 2013 and sources say CNN, desperate to reverse their 20-year ratings downward spiral, could be interested in signing her.
