Report: Dick Morris officially out at Fox

Politico is reporting this evening that Dick Morris is out at Fox News, where he has been a prominent political analyst since 1998.

Morris and fellow Fox analyst Karl Rove exemplified the closed loop of the conservative media during the presidential election. After Rove’s on-air meltdown when Fox News called Ohio and the election for President Obama, and following Morris’ prediction that Mitt Romney would win in a landslide, Fox boss Roger Ailes required producers to get special permission to book the once-prominent pundits.



While Rove returned less than a month later, Morris sightings have remained scarce — and like Sarah Palin’s, his contract will not be renewed.

But fear not — this doesn’t mean Morris will be absent from cable TV. On Wednesday, he’ll be a guest of Piers Morgan on CNN where, Morris promises, he’ll “spell out what the Republican Party must do to win national elections again and will discuss how House Speaker Boehner has become Obama’s captive. Tune in!”
