Karl Rove, Dick Morris Sidelined by Fox News
Posted on Dec 5, 2012
Fox News watchers may be wondering where frequent conservative commentators Karl Rove and Dick Morris have been lately. The two have vanished from the airwaves after they predicted for months and months that Mitt Romney would defeat Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election.
Now, Rove and Morris reportedly can no longer appear on the conservative news channel without the approval of the network’s top management. According to New York magazine’s Gabriel Sherman, that edict came from none other than Fox News President Roger Ailes himself.
That the two were not accurate election forecasters like The New York Times’ Nate Silver is perhaps the main reason they’ve been benched by Fox News’ top brass.
