Now this one is NOT from Reuters and would almost be too funny, if it were actually true: Fox News is reportedly dumping Marco Rubio. But with everything going on in the campaign and the sky is falling mentality at Fox, it isn’t that far fetched! LOL!

Marco Rubio’s path to the Republican presidential nomination just got a little narrower, as Fox News employees and guests have been instructed to stop giving the freshman senator favorable coverage, says New York’s Gabriel Sherman, citing “three Fox sources.” Sherman, who wrote a book about Fox News and its boss, Roger Ailes, quotes Ailes as telling a Fox host recently: “We’re finished with Rubio…. We can’t do the Rubio thing anymore.”

The reasons, Sherman says, include Ailes’ waning confidence in Rubio’s electoral prospects, tension with Rubio antagonists like Sean Hannity, and, most proximately, an article in The New York Times this week detailing a private 2013 dinner at which Rubio persuaded Ailes to back his “Gang of 8” immigration bill. “Roger hates seeing his name in print,” a longtime Ailes associate told Sherman. “He was appalled the dinner was reported.” The Fox News chief is now searching for a new candidate to champion, Sherman said…

Well I don’t know how reliable THE WEEK is but Fox is in full on denial:

After this article was published, Fox News’ Michael Clemente, the cable network’s executive vice president of news, issued a statement denying all aspects of the New York report, saying “there is no credence to this narrative.”

But it’s kinda fun anyway!
