Fox News drops analyst Dick Morris

One of the most widely seen contributors at Fox News Channel is reportedly parting ways with the network.

Dick Morris

Fox News has opted to not renew the contract of Dick Morris, political advisor and analyst at the network, as well as a frequent face on commentary programs such as "Hannity" and "The O'Reilly Factor."

Morris worked for President Bill Clinton as a chief strategist and advisor during his presidency before eventually embracing a more conservative outlook. He and Karl Rove came under fire from Fox News chief Roger Ailes and other analysts when their projections for Mitt Romney's bid for the presidency were proven to be flawed and did not pan out. Ailes issued internal gag orders on both Rove and Morris, among others, until things settled down.

"I've got egg on my face," Morris wrote on FoxNews.com after the election. "The key reason for my bum prediction is that I mistakenly believed that the 2008 surge in black, Latino, and young voter turnout would recede in 2012 to 'normal' levels. Didn’t happen."

Morris did not outright confirm the news on his website Tuesday, but did drop hints to viewers that he would be appearing on "Piers Morgan Tonight" on rival network CNN. "You read it right ... CNN, yes CNN," Morris wrote. No word on whether the strategist is making a one-off appearance or if he has a more long-term deal set up.
