Fox cuts ties to commentator Dick Morris
NEW YORK (AP) — Political commentator Dick Morris’ prediction of a huge landslide for Mitt Romney didn’t pan out. And now he’s lost his job at Fox News Channel.
Network spokeswoman Dana Klinghoffer said Tuesday that Fox wasn’t renewing its contract with Morris, who was steadfast throughout the campaign in his prediction of a big Romney win over President Barack Obama. He has made few appearances on Fox since the election.
Morris had also been criticized for accepting paid advertisements on his website from candidates that he discussed on the air at Fox.
On his website, Morris said he’ll be appearing on CNN’s Piers Morgan show Wednesday to talk politics.
