Much of the decline has been attributed to Roger Ailes' de facto firing of Sarah Palin. "Fox News watchers are clearly disenchanted with Fox's tilt to the Left," stated media expert Dinesh D'Sousa. Others have pointed to rumors that Tea Party groups in the Deep South are planning to boycott the network.
Asked if he intended to bring Palin back and install her in one of the primetime slots, Mr. Ailes said, "I'd rather stick a corkscrew deep into my ear."
Sarah Palin, now in the midst of she is calling a highly successful bus caravan that is canvassing Athabaskan villages across the Alaskan tundra, stated that she can further the cause of personal liberty by marketing Grizzley Mom's (trademark) Eyewear to Eskimo women than again being contracted to Ailes' network. Asked about her plans in the near future, Palin alluded to the possibility of taking her caravan to the Russian tundra. "Lots of hunters and hockey moms over there, you betcha! For years I've watched them from my front porch," she added.
