Fox News Responds To Sarah Palin’s Facebook Post On Cancelled Fox Appearances


Earlier today on Facebook, Sarah Palin informed her followers that her scheduled interviews on Fox News tonight were cancelled. Palin expressed disappointment that she would not be on-air to react to the speech given by her former running mate, John McCain, at the RNC convention tonight. Fox has responded, explaining that their plans changed after the Republicans shortened the convention from four days to three.

Palin took to her Facebook page to explain that while she was scheduled to appear on the network tonight, she will not be showing up after all.

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.

Fox News was quick to respond with the following statement from Bill Shine, Fox News’ EVP of Programming.

“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.”
