Sally Kohn, the outspoken, openly-gay, left-leaning lesbian contributor at Fox News, has left the cable channel.
From the New York Times:
Although Ms. Kohn was paid only for appearances on the cable network and not for writing for FoxNews.com, her commentaries have been a major draw for the Web site. Her Sept. 30 article, “Five reasons Americans already love ObamaCare — plus one reason why they’re gonna love it even more, soon” has received more than 226,000 Facebook “likes,” and has drawn nearly 1,200 comments, according to measurements on the site.
Kohn’s one-year contract with Fox ended this week. A spokesperson for the channel, speaking with the Times, called the parting of ways “gracious and amicable.”
One of Kohn’s most notable contributions to Fox was a column she wrote during the 2012 presidential election, following the vice presidential debate between Paul Ryan (R) and Joe Biden (D). “[T]o anyone paying the slightest bit of attention to facts,” Kohn wrote, “Ryan’s speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech.”
The column received more than 100,000 Facebook “likes” and was shared nearly 25,000 times on Twitter.
