Mediaite has confirmed Marc Lamont Hill has been fired from Fox News Channel. The liberal commentator was a regular on the network, most recently appearing as a guest on The O’Reilly Factor one week ago, according to TV Eyes.
Interestingly, the news was broken by News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch at the companies stockholders meeting today, reported byThe Hollywood Reporter.
Murdoch made the announcement after a shareholder asked about Hill’s “reputation of defending cop killers and racists.” MORE
Good riddance I say. Hill was nothing more than a straight up Obama shill. No matter what Obama did, this guy would spin it as favorable. Obama could tank the entire economy [a real possibility] and Hill would say something stupid like it needed a good crashing.
The last time I sat through an appearance by Hill on the Factor he was trying to argue that the opposition to Obama is racist. His logic basically consisted of take one part Red Stater add two parts white people, shake well and “ta-dah” you have racists.
Look for him to turn up somewhere bashing Fox News Anita Dunn style.
