Newt Gingrich Out as Fox News Contributor

CNN is reporting this afternoon that Newt Gingrich is out as a Fox News contributor. Per Fox:

FOX News Channel has mutually agreed to suspend its contributor agreement with Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich effective immediately. Due to the intense media speculation about Gingrich’s potential selection as Donald Trump’s vice presidential candidate, we felt it best to halt his contributor role on the network to avoid all conflicts of interest that may arise

Note that they just say there’s “intense media speculation” about the VP pick, so time will tell if he’s actually getting it…
