A bitter Sarah Palin took to Facebook Wednesday night, saying the Fox News Channel had cut her appearances for the evening.
“I’m sorry Fox cancelled all my scheduled interviews tonight because I sure wanted to take the opportunity on the air to highlight Senator John McCain’s positive contributions to America, to honor him, and to reflect on what a biased media unfairly put him through four years ago tonight.
Granted, our honored and esteemed war hero has gone through much more than the liberal media can ever do to him in their efforts to harm this patriot. I look forward to hearing his words to his fellow Americans tonight more than any of the other convention speeches. God bless John McCain. Thank you for everything. And happy birthday, my friend.”
This prompted a quick response from CNN’s Piers Morgan, who took to Twitter to invite her to appear on his show. It appears there was no response from Mrs. Palin.
Fox News responded to Palin with a statement by Bill Shine, executive vice president of programming, that was sent to Mediaite:
“Our plans changed based on the fact that the RNC condensed the schedule of speeches from four nights to three. We look forward to having Governor Palin back as soon as we can.”
Known for her outspoken and often divisive comments, Mrs. Palin has not failed to make her opinions known during this election cycle. Still a favorite among Tea Party Conservatives, she continues to throw her support behind candidates she believes in.
