New York magazine’s Gabriel Sherman reports Fox News chief Roger Ailes has benched Karl Rove and Dick Morris for now. Producers must now get permission before booking either of the two men. You will recall Karl Rove had an on-air squabble over the network’s polling analysts calling Ohio for President Obama in the Nov. 6 elections. Dick Morris had predicted a Mitt Romney landslide, which was quite the opposite. Um, Romney got the shellacking. Gabriel Sherman reports the explanation for the benching of both men is that the “election is over.”
