FNC Liberal Pundit Marc Lamont Hill Fired

lamont-hill_10-16.jpgTHR reports that Fox News liberal commentator Marc Lamont Hill has been fired from Fox News. At an annual News Corp. meeting today, chairman Rupert Murdoch is said to have “revealed the move after a shareholder had raised the question of how Hill was hired, citing his ‘reputation of defending cop killers and racists.’” Hill’s firing has been confirmed. THR’s Georg Szalai:

Hill, a frequent guest on “The O’Reilly Factor” and other Fox News shows, has been the target of increasing criticism on the blogosphere for alleged sympathies to controversial figures including Assata Shakur and Mumia Abu-Jamal. Though Hill bills himself as an expert on hip-hop culture, he also drew fire for serving as a liberal foil for various Fox News personalities on subjects far from his stated area of expertise.

Think Progress points out that Hill was on Fox Business Network as recently as yesterday.
