Fox News has decided to squelch one of the main buglers for the tea party brigade, Sarah Palin. ... The particulars of the Palin parting haven’t been reported, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Fox News wanted more work in exchange for that $1 million annual salary. Eric Ostermeier, a University of Minnesota political science professor with an enviable amount of free time, conducted a count of all the words Palin uttered during her three-year pundit stretch and concluded that she was paid $15.85 per word, popping up to comment about once every seven days. In a week’s time, I write three editorials and a column, totaling about 2,100 words. At the Palin rate, it would cost the newspaper $33,285 per week/Gary Crooks, SR, Smart Bombs. More here.
