Fox News has decided not to renew its contract with political commentator and pollster Dick Morris, an industry official tells POLITICO's Mike Allen.
 
Morris, who was on contract with Fox News throughout the 2012 presidential campaign, had not appeared on the network for almost three months after Fox News president Roger Ailes decided to keep him off the network. He is scheduled to appear on CNN on Wednesday.
 
Morris served as an adviser to President Bill Clinton but later became one of the Clintons' staunchest critics. He was an adamant supporter of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney during the 2012 elections, and frequently predicted that Romney would beat President Obama in a landslide.

ck Morris visited the Hannity show tonight to explain how he got it so wrong with his prediction of a “landslidey” Romney win. After blaming Hurricane Sandy and acknowledging that he got it “dead wrong” about the demographic turnout, Morris made a jaw-dropping admission. That his prediction was designed to help turn around Romney’s failing campaign.
 
Morris hinted at what was to come when he said early on, “I called it as I saw it from the polling and I did the best I could and I also worked very hard for Romney.” That right there is disturbing. Morris is billed by Fox News as a “political analyst” and is usually introduced on the air, as he is in this segment, as “former Clinton advisor.” And he did not disclose that he was working for Romney when he made his predictions, at least none that I saw.

But later, Morris openly admitted his prediction was an election ploy:


Sean, I hope people aren’t mad at me about it… I spoke about what I believed and I think that there was a period of time when the Romney campaign was falling apart, people were not optimistic, nobody thought there was a chance of victory and I felt that it was my duty at that point to go out and say what I said. And at the time that I said it, I believe I was right.
 
In other words, don’t hold a grudge because was only trying to help the home team.

Shocking, a media analyst towing the line a particular party, never would have guessed.

his mistake was admitting he knowingly told america a lie - in hopes that the lie woudl come true as a result of his telling that lie using a very big platform.

I don't even think dick Morris believes that.. He honestly nought Romney ws going to win.. Now he is embarrassed that he called it wrong.. So he now says he was just trying to pump up the base.. Just trying to save face..
