Sarah Palin and Fox News Channel are going their separate ways.
The former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee had been a staple on the news channel since 2010. But reports have surfaced that Palin and Fox News chief Roger Ailes clashed.
Maybe one of them registered as a Democrat.
"I'm sorry Fox cancelled all my scheduled interviews tonight," Palin posted on Facebook last summer, leading to speculation there was a strain behind the scenes.
Palin also has branched out to other networks -- including a reality travel show on TLC, "Sarah Palin's Alaska," that lasted one season.
"We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Governor Palin," Bill Shine, an executive vice president at Fox News, said in a statement. "We wish her the best in her future endeavors."
STEVE WOZNIAK SAYS STEVE JOBS MOVIE IS WRONG: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says the film "Jobs," a biopic on the late Steve Jobs starring Ashton Kutcher, gets the story "totally wrong."
Wozniak came to this conclusion, he told Gizmodo, after watching a clip of the flick that surfaced online this week showing 34-year-old Kutcher as Jobs, trying to convince Wozniak, his computer wiz partner (played by "The Book of Mormon's" Josh Gad), about the intrinsic societal value of his designs.
"Not close ... we never had such interaction and roles," Wozniak wrote to the site.
The 62-year-old engineer and programmer argued that the scene essentially got Apple's birth backward when it came to which of the two men saw the machine's potential.
"Totally wrong," Woz explained further in an email. "Personalities and ... the ideas of computers affecting society did not come from Jobs. They inspired me and were widely spoken at the Homebrew Computer Club (of which he was a member). Steve came back from Oregon and came to a club meeting and didn't start talking about this great social impact."
Wozniak said Jobs initially had a less grandiose vision.
"His idea was to make a $20 PC board and sell it for $40 to help people at the club build the computer I'd given away," recalled the computer scientist. "The lofty talk came much further down the line."
As for how he's portrayed by Gad, Wozniak said filmmakers took dramatic license.
"I never looked like a professional. We were both kids. Our relationship was so different from what was portrayed. I'm embarrassed, but if the movie is fun and entertaining, all the better," he said.
But Wozniak is not dismissing "Jobs" outright -- yet. He noted that he only saw one clip -- even though it's an invented scene -- and said if "the meaning portrayed is correct" then "Jobs" could still be "very good."
Someone told him Ashton Kutcher is in it ... right?
"Jobs" screens Jan. 25 at Sundance Film Festival. It opens in theaters April 19.
SUPERHERO ROSTER FOR SET 'THE JUSTICE LEAGUE': Looks like the superhero roster for "The Justice League" film has been set.
Citing Latino Review, MSN reported Friday the long-in-development "Justice League" movie -- the DC Comics equivalent to "The Avengers" -- will feature Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and the Flash. Additional characters that could make cameos in the film include Aquaman, Martian Manhunter and Hawkman.
This is starting to sound like professional wrestling.
Part of the rationale for this roster is likely that Superman, Batman and Green Lantern have all been introduced in previous films, although it is unlikely that the Batman in "Justice League" will be the same one from Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy.
Right. Time to call George Clooney.
The rumored villain of the movie, Darkseid, is a cosmic threat from outer space from where, as you know, all cosmic threats come. Like Jar Jar Binks.
Although names like Nolan, Ben Affleck and the Wachowskis have been thrown around as potential directors, Warner Bros. has yet to decide.
J.J. Abrams may be good. He's probably not busy.
With the probable exception of Henry Cavill as Superman -- since he's playing the role in this summer's "Man of Steel" -- no superheroes have been cast yet. Joseph Gordon-Levitt recently dismissed talk that he would reprise his role from "The Dark Knight Rises," which ended with his character possibly taking over as Batman from a retired Bruce Wayne.
"Justice League" is tentatively set for release in summer 2015 -- when it will go head-to-head with Marvel's "The Avengers 2."
TINA TURNER RENOUNCING HER CITIZENSHIP: Tina Turner says she's renouncing her U.S. citizenship to become a full-fledged citizen of Switzerland, according to TMZ.

Turner -- who was born in Nutbush, Tenn., -- has been living in Zurich since the mid-'90s and, according to multiple reports, has decided to make Switzerland her permanent home.
According to a local Swiss newspaper, officials in Switzerland have already decided to grant request for citizenship. Now it's only a matter of time before the move becomes official.
Turner has not commented on the matter.
