Fox News host Andrea Tantaros quietly pulled from daytime show over contract "issues"

Speculation continues as to exactly why Fox News sidelined "Outnumbered" host Andrea Tantaros this week

Andrea Tantaros has been absent from her post as one-third of Fox News' "Outnumbered" hosting panel since Monday, starting chatter about a possible departure.

According to a Fox News statement, first issued upon request from TVNewser, "Issues have arisen regarding Andrea’s contract, and Fox News Channel has determined it best that she take some time off. She is still under contract with the network."

Regular readers might remember Tantaros from that time she called campus rape a "war on boys"; or maybe that other time when she said Hillary Clinton lured Trump into saying women should be punished for getting illegal abortions; what about that other other time she claimed public school health initiatives give kids "mental problems?"

Tantaros's new book, "Tied Up in Knots," became available Tuesday. Some are speculating her promotion of the book conflicted in some way with her Fox contract.
