Sarah Palin Defends Being Let Go by Fox News

| by Michael Allen

In her first interview since being let go by Fox News, former half-term Alaska Governor Sarah Palin told Breitbart.com that she no longer wants to “just preach to the choir.”

Palin, who has refused interviews with media outlets (besides Fox News) for years, told her fellow conservatives that they need to “step out in faith, jump out of the comfort zone, and broaden our reach as believers in American exceptionalism.”

Palin said: “I’m taking my own advice here as I free up opportunities to share more broadly the message of the beauty of freedom and the imperative of defending our republic and restoring this most exceptional nation. We can't just preach to the choir. The message of liberty and true hope must be understood by a larger audience."

"Voices on the right like Mark Levin, Rush, and the writers here at Breitbart have come out strongly against the 'go along to get along' politicians who wave the white flag before the battle even begins. We’re not going to be able to advance the cause of limited constitutional government unless we deal with these big government enablers on our side. And this all ties into the problem of crony capitalism and the permanent political class in the Beltway. We need to consistently take them on election after election – ever vigilant."

When asked about her future, Palin said: "As far as long-term plans, the door is wide open. I know the country needs more truth-telling in the media, and I’m willing to do that. So, we shall see. And always in the center of it all I have an awesome, full, exciting, and large family living in a very unique part of America that keeps me hopping! I love it!"
