[Ed. – Considering the absolute drivel Juan Williams gets away with, it does seem awful darn particular if Tantaros was taken out of the rotation over sprightly remarks.]
Where in the world is Fox News personality Andrea Tantaros? The former regular guest on The Five and Redeye was most recently featured on Outnumbered, but as of this week seems to be off the air. Adweek has the brief and not very informative story of her sudden, though perhaps temporary exit.
Andrea Tantaros won’t be on Fox News Channel for the time being, TVNewser has learned.
“Issues have arisen regarding Andrea’s contract, and Fox News Channel has determined it best that she take some time off,” a spokesperson said, adding, “She is still under contract with the network.”
Timothy Whiteman at The Examiner wonders if there isn’t something more to it.
While not cited by FNC as a reason for her extended vacation, Tantaros recently claimed during a taping of Outnumbered that certain GOP Establishment-types were coming down hard on her for supporting Donald Trump; “They have been doing this. Specifically, Charles Cooke, who is a writer for National Review, he tweeted out that I should give my job to somebody else. Also, I saw a tweet, it was a meme by Kevin Williamson of National Review trying to make me seem stupid. There’s a girl talking about biorhythms, or something. So I’ve gotten my fair share as well from folks on the right and the left and in the media calling me stupid and Trump supporters as well… Exactly I should give up my job according to men in the Republican Party.”
