As She Makes Senate Run, Fox News Drops Liz Cheney As Contributor

The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, Liz Cheney, is running for a Senate seat in Wyoming, and will lose her gig with Fox News as a result. Cheney has been a Fox News political contributor since January 2012.

Due to her political run, FNC is dropping her as a contributor, Mediaite’s Andrew Kirell confirms.

It is standard operating procedure for TV news outlets to end contributor agreements when the contributor in question runs for political office. Back in 2011, FNC terminated the contracts of Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum once they declared their intention to run for the GOP Presidential nomination.

Bob Schieffer on the ‘Important Role’ the Sunday Shows Play in Midterm Election Coverage

Yesterday, we reported that the CBS Sunday public affairs show Face the Nation topped its competition in total viewers last week. TVNewser spoke to the program’s moderator, Bob Schieffer, about the win, the upcoming elections, and the role the Sunday shows play in this multi-platform world.

TVNewser: Bob, congratulations on Sunday, why do you think that the show resonated with viewers?

Bob Schieffer: We just try to stick right to the news, we are in the middle of a very important midterm election and we try to make every broadcast for the last month or so about that, we had quite a good panel [Sunday] we had Liz Cheney, and she really squared off against Howard Dean.

It was jut the kind of discussion we really like to have, it was kind of fun, but still it was very civil. It was interesting, every single person that was on the broadcast said to me, ‘thank you, I really enjoyed doing that.’ When you do that you feel like you have advanced the story a little bit.

TVNewser: “Meet the Press” and “This Week” both played host to U.S. Senate debates, with MTP hosting the candidates from Colorado and “This Week” the candidates from Delaware. The Delaware race has drawn some national attention, but do you think that most people outside of those states are really interested in watching those debates?

Who Should be Eliot Spitzer’s CNN ‘Work Wife?’

A couple of weeks ago, Daily Finance columnist Jeff Bercovici suggested that Eliot Spitzer, were he to sign a deal to join CNN’s still-to-be-decided 8 p.m. program, would need a “work wife” to keep him honest.

Now Bercovici has revisited the issue, suggesting five conservative women to be the yin to Spitzer’s yang. Who are his choices?

Sarah Palin, Monica Crowley, Laura Ingraham, Michelle Malkin and Liz Cheney.

Meanwhile, the New York Post reports that conservative columnist Kathleen Parker is the leading candidate to be paired with Spitzer.

What do you think? Is Parker a good choice? What about some of Bercovici’s suggestions?
