Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano is being kept off the air indefinitely amid the controversy over his unverified claims that British intelligence wiretapped Trump Tower at the behest of former President Obama.
Fox News did not respond to inquiries about Napolitano’s status Monday. Napolitano was conspicuously missing from the network’s coverage of the confirmation hearings on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch — an event in which he typically would have played a significant role. He has not been on the air since Thursday.
People familiar with the situation who could speak only on the condition of anonymity said Napolitano is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future. Napolitano was not available for comment.
Wow, when you are too full of shit for Fox News, you know you are REALLY full of shit.
But here's the thing, Fox News is the source for MANY of Donald Trump's false statements.
As the Daily Show pointed out last night, not only is Fox News virtually the only cable news outlet that can interview Trump these days, but they also the ONLY news outlet he seems to think is not "fake news."
Which is hysterical since most of us know that Fox News is often ground zero for fake news.
However, like Trump, they are in complete denial that they are essentially the bullshit network. (Except of course for Shepard Smith who seems inoculated against the bullshit.)
And that makes statements like this seem to be dripping with irony.
Yes, Donald Trump certainly needs to "embrace the facts."O'Reilly: Trump Would Be Wise to 'Embrace Only Facts' in the Future https://t.co/yA7gLPp0cA (VIDEO) pic.twitter.com/yMqEqwHbcl— Mediaite (@Mediaite) March 21, 2017
But do you know what might help with that?
If his go to news outlet did it first.
Sure firing Judge Napolitano is a good start, but what about Sean Hannity? Jeanne Pirro? Everybody on Fox and Friends? And yes Bill O'Reilly himself?
The facts are that there are rarely actual verifiable facts on Fox News. And when there are they are twisted to fit their conservative agenda.
Personally I would fire the whole crew, with the exception of Shepard Smith who actually seems to have journalistic integrity.
