Fox Terminates Contracts With Gingrich And Santorum

Reported by Ellen - May 7, 2011 -

You may recall that Fox News suspended the contracts of contributors Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum for 60 days in early March. Unless the potential presidential candidates notified Fox that they would not run in 2012, their contracts were to be terminated. Politico reported that both have been terminated.

Politico's Ben Smith wrote, "The contracts' end marks another sign that Gingrich, who has repeatedly delayed his decision citing business obligations, is in the race -- though he dropped out of tonight's Fox debate."

Smith notes that Fox may "intensify the network's pressure" on Mike Huckabee to make up his mind.

There was no word about Sarah Palin. Or does Fox already know she's not going to run?
