Liberal Pundit Parts Ways With Fox News, Bolts to Rival Cable Channel NY Times

Fox News Channel has lost one of its most high-profile liberal voices. The conservative-leaning cable channel parted ways this week with Sally Kohn, who left the network and jumped to rival MSNBC, reports Elizabeth Jensen in The New York Times.

"MSNBC wasted no time booking her Tuesday evening to discuss a commentary she had written for the FoxNews.com site, 'I was an ObamaCare Guinea Pig,'" Jensen writes.

Kohn, 36, declined to comment, while Fox News described the transition as "a gracious and amicable parting." Her contract had ended with the network last year, the piece adds.

"Even so, Ms. Kohn had continued to appear exclusively on the channel until Tuesday, when she dropped the words 'Fox News Contributor' from the biography on her personal website," the story notes.
