Santorum to appear on CNN following suspension from Fox

(CNN) – Hours after his contributor arrangement was suspended by Fox News Channel, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum will appear live on CNN's "John King, USA." The show airs at 7 p.m. ET.

Santorum, who is considered a likely candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, was a contributor for Fox since 2007. Tonight's interview on CNN will be his first television appearance since his contract was suspended.

Fox News suspended Santorum's contract earlier today, and will terminate his contract on May 1 if Santorum chooses to make a bid for the presidential nomination.

    I'll be more impressed if he did an interview with a democrat who will press him on the tough questions. We all Know John King is a republican and is going to go light on him. Why won't he go on MSNBC and do an interview with Chris Matthews or Lawrence Odonnell?

    So he was fired before he makes that final plunge to oblivion? What about the huckster and the imbecilic AK moron? The only good thing about all these clowns is that they have finally become as obsolete as that woman but they are still all good for late nights and just the butts of jokes in general!
    What a party of nobodies!!! :) :)

    Anybody that has ever bothered to watch Fox News knows that both sides are presented and debated. Seems too many looney leftists have a problem with the other side being presented, and not just their viewpoint. So much for tolerance and diversity! The ratings tell the story loser lefties. Fox News wins hands down. The liberal main street media domination of the air waves has thankfully ENDED.

    DemoCommunists for a Better Way – Bankruptcy, you're joking right? And it's "main STREAM media". There's no such thing as the "liberal" media. The media is owned by huge corporate conglomerates who contribute heavily to the rethugliban. The problem with the truth is that it has a liberal bias, and unlike your heros over at faux noise, credible news organizations know better than to make up lies, as they are aware that there are consequences for such action.

    "The ratings tell the story loser lefties. Fox News wins hands down."

    300 million Americans vs 3 million FOX viewers any given day. 297 million Americans don't watch FOX. The facts tells the story. Americans who don't watch FOX News wins hands down.

    @ DemoCommunists for a Better Way – Bankruptcy: I guess you have never paid close attention to Fox, then. The overwhelming number of contributors are conservative, and the token leftists you get are usaully badgered and shouted over. My children have commented on the fact that no one on FOX can make a point in a civil fashion without resorting to the usual insults the Right revels in. MSNBC has its share of rudeness as well, especially Chris Matthews, but he at least congratulates them for being a good sport, and they come back on. The interesting thing is that liberals know they don't know everything, so they will listen and learn: a conservative is incapable of learning, and therfore incapable of tolerating the liberal's viewpoint. I find it very interesting you conclude with "loser lefties", since ending with an insult is usually the sign of someone who knows deep down they are wrong. As far as "domination" is concerned, conservative media will never be number one, since people don't like being preached to by conservatives any more than they like being preached to by Liberals: the difference is that liberals treat people with respect, while conservatives are incapable of it. We listen, we adapt, we learn and that is why we will always win.

    @DemoCommunitsts – Why should any of us watch FOX News when we have you (and others) parroting FOX's Fair and Balanced talking points for us?

    NBC, CBS, MSNBC, New York Times, Newsweek, Time, and on and on.... ALL LEFT WING BIASED. Fox News is the ONLY outlet that presents BOTH sides. Chris Matthews NEVER has a conservative on his Sunday show. The others, usually one token middle of the road conservative against usually 3-4 liberals so they get a miniscule amount of time.

    Fox news beats all the others in RATINGS fools which is how their success is measured. Libs are sooo cluelsss.

    Domination is a given that more than TWICE the number of people in this country identify themselves as conservative versus liberal. For far too long a 20% minority in this country has run the media outlets. Thank God that Fox News was started and has grown to be #1, YES NUMBER ONE!! It just gauls the hell out of you libtards doesn't it!!!

    You just can't accept the fact (among many others) that the failed leftist policies of yesteryear will soon be flushed down th tiolet where they belong. Soicialism and communism has failed, but capitalism and freedom has created the greatest nation on the planet. And conservatives to keep it that way.

    Pandering corporate media...
    It's interesting how their politicians had such indignation over the thought of someone such as Ed Schultz running, yet the impropriety of Huckabee, Palin, Santorum, et al. actively pursuing office appears so transparently hypocritical.
    Another double standard.

    @DemoCommunists for a Better Way – Bankruptcy

    In Fox news three group participate in deadbeats unfortunately Anchor and right together and never allowed left to present their views

    Very rare they allowed left to present their views. If left views are good then Anchor will join with right and scream to end the debate

    If Fox is "fair and balanced" it must be at 2:30 in the morning for about 30 seconds. Every time I turn to Fox they're either interviewing Rove, Palin, Santorum, Gingrich, Colter, Bachmann, or Malkin. Well, I admit that on occasion, I've seen O'Reilly interviewing Beck or Beck interviewing Hannity or.....Both sides of what? The standard conservative vs the lunatic conservative? Get normal!
