There were and still are plenty of FOX News contributors who are completely anti-Trump and that’s fine – we need a few people to play the opposition.
George Will, however, will no longer be one of them.
The Hill reported:
Fox declines to renew contracts for several contributors
Fox News has declined to renew contributor contracts for longtime political commentator George Will, Republican strategist Ed Rollins and actress Stacey Dash, according to a network spokesperson.
Will, 75, is a Pulitzer-winning conservative columnist who was with ABC from 1981-2011 before coming to Fox in 2013.
In June of 2016, he declared he was leaving the Republican party because of Donald Trump, a decision the then-nominee appeared to embrace.
In 2015 and 2016, Will had periodically feuded with the network’s highest-rated host, Bill O’Reilly, with Will once stating that O’Reilly’s best-selling book, “Killing Reagan” was “nonsensical” and “The Factor” host calling Will “a hack” in a subsequent interview.
Don’t worry about George Will. He’ll land on his feet at another network like CNN or MSNBC where he’ll be encouraged to bash Trump nightly to his heart’s content.
