Fox News Benches Karl Rove & Dick Morris; President Obama Briefs MSNBC Hosts

By | Wednesday December 5, 2012 @ 7:09am PST

Fox News has confirmed New York Magazine‘s claim that Roger Ailes is cutting back air time for Fox News contributors Karl Rove and Dick Morris for the time being. (“The election’s over.”) Ailes told media watchers he had a “what the?” reaction to Rove’s election-night meltdown. Morris kept predicting a Mitt Romney landslide on Election Day. NYM says Ailes’ deputy Fox News programming chief Bill Shine “is requiring producers to ask for approval before lining up any Rove or Morris appearances”. Both pundits made several appearances in the days after the election, but their visibility on the network has faded since then. A spokesperson for Ailes denies any rift: Ailes and Rove plan to meet this week. Meanwhile, President Obama held a Tuesday afternoon briefing on the fiscal cliff for MSNBC primetime hosts Rachel Maddow, Al Sharpton, Lawrence O’Donnell, and Ed Schultz, who tweeted about it.

Although oddly Saturday Night Live mostly took a pass, The Simpsons picked up the slack Sunday night in its opening credits:

Nikki Finke reported in real time on Karl Rove questioning Fox News’ own judgment last night after the network called Ohio for Barack Obama. It was fascinating TV: live, awkward and, in the end, humiliating.
