Sarah Palin Comments On Leaving Fox News

Sarah Palin has broken her silence (after what was an incredibly brief amount of silence) about the news that she will no longer be a regular commentator on the Fox News Channel. It only took the former Alaska governor one day after her name started circulating the news wires before she decided she had to step in and be a part of the conversation.

As was reported over the weekend, and confirmed by Fox News, Palin's contract with the cable network was originally set for January 2010 to January 2013, and after discussions between Palin and Fox about contract renewal terms, the decision was made not to renew the contract. It wasn't immediately clear whose decision this was.

Palin was interviewed by conservative news site Breitbart, where she said that her goal is now to reach more people. She said that at Fox News, all she was doing was "preaching to the choir."

"The message of liberty and true hope must be understood by a larger audience," she was quoted as saying.

According to an unnamed source at CNN, it was Palin's decision to turn down the offer to stay on at Fox News. What will of course always remain unknown is exactly what kind of terms Fox was offering Palin for the renewal. Without it being an election season for a couple years, the offer was no doubt less than what it was for the 2010-2013 cycle.

As for her opinions on the election, Palin said, "I was raised to never retreat and to pick battles wisely, and all in due season. When it comes to defending our republic, we haven’t begun to fight! But we delight in those who underestimate us." It is unclear exactly what Palin's next move will be.
