After Fred Thompson claimed that Fox News Channel is biased against his candidacy, we were reminded of a November article in the Washingtonian that says “Speculation behind the ousting of Jim Mills points to the Republican candidate’s wife.”
The popular Mills left his position at Fox to become Thompson’s press spokesman.
So political and media insiders were stunned when Mills was ousted from the campaign just weeks after he started. The move was so controversial within the Thompson camp that top adviser Mark Corallo abruptly left as well, in part out of loyalty to Mills, whom he had recruited.
The firing also outraged Mills’s former colleagues at Fox, where the onetime producer is still very popular.
