Fox News Yanks Talking Head Bigots Rick Santorum + Newt Gingrich Over Political Offenses

Fox News has temporarily suspended both Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, two of America’s favorite anti-gay crusaders, from their paid contributor gigs after they both “signaled possible runs” in the 2012 presidential election. Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee: still cashing checks.

    For fuck’s sake, Queerty, grow some integrity.

    Yes Newt Gingrich is a hypocrite, a bigot and homophobe. Santorum too is a bigot and homophobe.

    And Fox also sponsors and promotes bigotry and homophobia.

    FOX’s actions regarding suspending Gingrich and Santorum NONETHELESS is that those two have announced their intentions of running for president.

    @Eric Holder: I think he means that Fox is worried about the equal time provisions of election law. If the kept Newt and Sanitarium on the air they’d have to give the same amount of time to all declared candidates. That would interfere with profit-making.

    Does everyone like Santorum’s campaign wig and new hair color, frothy brown?

    What the hell is wrong with Queerty, you are lieing as much as they do. There are no “political offenses” here. This is just what a network does when talent are thiking about running for office. If they do not do this, they have to give free time to the challangers since they are paid hosts.

    Stop being a gay Fox.

    Does either one of these men seriously believe he has a chance in hell of ever becoming POTUS!! Newt, you’ve been desperately trying to get the keys to the Lincoln bedroom now for more than 2 decades, can’t you see it’s just not in the cards? You and wifey #3 will never call 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. home, NEVER!

    As for Sanctorum…the man’s a complete joke! Only Romney with his business cred (and perfect hair) can take down Obama, if he gets to the big show. Unfortunately for him, and the Republican party, those Southern Evangelicals will stand in his way come hell or high water: HE’S A MORMON, NOT A REAL CHRISTIAN! It’s looking more and more like Obama might actually have a shot at winning this thing…A year ago, I was convinced he was a dead man walking…

    @kayla: you actually thought Obama was not going to be an 8 year prez? You buy too much into the media.

    OBAMA 2012 and beyond! PEACELUVNBWILD!

    Be color-blind. Obama IS Ronald Reagan. RR is his hero. Just look at Obama’s policy. It is nearly identical to G.W. Bush. Still loving all those wars? How is that banking policy protecting the housing market? Obama’s Justice Department is still arguing in court that gays deserve the same protection (none) as child molesters and felons.

    What idiot would look at the facts and still yell “yeah Obama!”? Oh, I know, the ones who let the TV tell them what to think. You either use it or lose it. Please think deeply.

    @Ronbo:

    Ronbo, are you still studying for your GED? It’s old news about the DOMA position of Obama, so forget your diss about the court arguments.

    What about Mr Trump. Why is he still on the air?
