New York (CNN) - Sarah Palin met with officials at Fox News in midtown Manhattan for over an hour on Wednesday.
After checking out of her Jersey City hotel earlier in the day for the fourth day of her "One Nation" bus tour, Palin told a gaggle of reporters that she was en route to Boston, but added: "I'm going to go talk to my bosses at Fox first, here, though. If we can make our way through the city in a big old bus."
Palin's bus was later parked outside Fox's New York headquarters for about 90 minutes around lunchtime.
It was not clear with whom Palin met, but the visit comes on the heels of a New York Magazine report that Fox News chairman Roger Ailes believes Palin is "an idiot." Fox denied that account.
The meeting also comes amid speculation about the limits of Palin's Fox contract, which reportedly guarantees her $1 million a year through 2012.
Palin continues to say that she is seriously considering a presidential bid while also appearing on air as a paid contributor. But that hasn't stopped her from speaking with reporters from different media outlets, including CNN, throughout her bus tour of historical sites along the East Coast.
Several of Palin's moves in recent days –the bus tour, a new home purchase in Arizona, and the re-hiring of key staffers– have fueled speculation that she is laying the groundwork for a campaign.
But former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, both onetime Fox contributors, were suspended and later released as it became clear they were preparing to seek the Republican presidential nomination.
CNN's Adam Reiss contributed to this report.
I wonder if she dragged her family into the meeting with her bosses? I wouldn't put it past her. She is just a down home country girl.
If we can make our way through the city in a big old bus."
Yeah, this woman is clueless... has she ever been in a big city? Has she seen the buses that travel through big cities.
Can that motorcycle PLEASE take her back to Alaska? Oh wait, on the other hand, PLEASE RUN SARAH!!! The Democrats (and at least 1/2 of republicans) LOVE YOU!!!!
The meeting is to make sure they keep ALL THEIR LIES STRAIGHT. PATHETIC
Maybe sister Sara is better on her knees than Gingrich or Santorum so Arres is willing to cut her some slack.
$1 mil per year to be a cheerleader on Fox News – Facts Don't Matter – is a cush gig. Fox must have alot of spare millions to go around if they pay her that, plus send many millions more to give to the Republican Governors Association.
Why does this 1/2 term governor(quiter) that is just a citizen get so much airtime?
I would love to see an open debate between Palin and Obama. He would mop the floor with her.
Her I.Q and Her shoe size are exactly the same.
It is amazing that there is not a louder outcry from the Right as well as the left that the majority of the news media is reporting Libral biased stories. Here in NJ the Newark Star Ledger, Asbury Park Press, New York Times all singing the same disgusting Liberal Bias. Whether it is the daily Political cartoon attacking Christie or praising Obama they all sing the same left wing message that is anti taxpayer, pro govt union, pro Obama, anti Palin, anti business. It gets very tiresome.
Ailes is not the only one who thinks Palin is an idiot and a banjo strummin' slack jaw yahoo.
She's just effing with us and trying to get in headlines again.
Well, of course $arah Palin had to meet with the bosses at Fox News. They probably had some new scripts ready for her upcoming appearances on the Hannity show. As always, they need to give her ample time with her scripts, so she is able to look up the definition and pronounciation of any multi-syllabic words.
This woman is a journalism major yet speaks in run-on sentences with completely screwed up phrasing and structure. Nothing worse than an imbecile trying to sound intelligent. The fake folksy crap of hers is also grating... it astounds me that people actually buy it.
Bus tour, new home purchase in AZ and re-hiring of key staffers do not make Palin electable. There are a lot of other viable Republican candidates out there who will stand a better chance than Palin, but Palin for her own selfishness (again) is in the spotlight. Government is serious business and competition is good. I would like to see the best candidate voted into the office, Republican or Democrat. In any case, we all know that Palin won't make the cut, except for Palin herself.
What a joke!
Are (typical) republican voters really this stupid?
Or are they just on a mission to destroy America from within??
Ha,Ha,Ha,Ha, Silly Palin, She really just does not get it . You are a quitter , a loser and an idiot
If we can make our way through the city in a big old bus."
She's a Third-class IDIOT!!!!
Here's some more buses that get around NYC just fine Sarah dahling: M5, Q2, M6. M4 etc. They are all public transportation buses. Oh and let's not forget good ole Greyhounds, Megabuses etc.
Your attempt at coming off cutsie is just making you sound imbecilic and "Deliverance" dumb.
God! Roger Ailes thinks sarah is an idiot! Maybe there is someone who can tell the truth and not have to lie all the time at FOX!
I give Roger credit for his intelligence!
She has twenty years in public service. The libs forced her towards bankruptcy so she quit. Which was the goal......duh
And now libs are mad because she quit? Get your story's straight.
Who is dumb now.
"I'm going to go talk to my bosses at Fox first, here, though. If we can make our way through the city in a big old bus."
More Hockey-Mom talk, $arah? Or are you so backwards yourself that you actually do think this is how most Americans speak?
it looks like cnn should thank palin. without her they would have nothing at all to talk about. how about some real news.
She is there to get her bonus
Past one month no good news for FOX to cover in their opinion network they were force to cover Breaking news
Now Palin start the bus tour to make FOX busy
when will Fox be court ordered to drop the word "news" from Fox News?
Sucking up all of the Republican oxygen once again. She is just a pretty face and an empty head with a marble rolling around; looking for ways to make money. What is the donate website on her bus for if she isn't running for something???
What about her hen pecked husband. Waiting for his wife to tell him when to jump...
If I was a Rep. Presidential canidate I would be mad at her antics.
The Republican's don't have a prayer next election. They can't throw grandma under the bus with medicare and get away with it.
