Per the LATimes, Fox News pulled Saturday’s episode of conservative commentator Jeanine Pirro’s program after publicly admonishing her for on-air comments she made last week about a Muslim congresswoman’s hijab.
“Justice With Judge Jeanine” — which airs Saturdays at 6 p.m. Pacific and is typically the most watched cable news program on the night — was replaced with a repeat airing of the documentary series “Scandalous: The Trial of William Kennedy Smith,” according to the Fox News schedule.
A representative for Fox News did not comment on Pirro’s status or the reason for the programming change. But the switch appears to be related to Pirro’s March 9 comment about Rep. Ilhan Omar ( D-Minn.), who wears a hijab, a traditional head covering worn by Muslim women.
“Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” Pirro said in the scripted opening of her March 9 program that dealt with Omar, a popular target of conservative pundits since she entered Congress.
Now Judge Jeanine Supporters are taking action and speaking out.
A petition threatening to boycott FoxNews if they take further action against Judge Jeanine has over 2,000 signatures. You can read and sign the petition here.
Here are just some of the many things Judge Jeanine supporters had to say to Fox News.
Fox was the only accurate news you could depend on-next will be Hannity. He’s the best. You want to get rid of somebody Juan Williams & Smith I shut off.
I believe in Judge Jeanine, what she said was absolute truth
I only watch Fox News because they don’t muzzle their news show hosts, if you don’t bring the judge back I will not watch Fox at all! You won’t be any better than cnn msnbc abc etc. you should be ashamed of shutting down free speech. God Bless you do the right thing and bring her back with a huge apology!
Bring her back or I’m done with FOX!! I find it strange that Democrats and CNN can say what ever they want, Republicans get absolutely no freedom of speech!
She has one of the best shows on fox so if she goes so do i and everyone i can talk to about that seem maybe that fox is getting soft or maybe leaning a little to the left like all the other idiots i thought fox was the best news channel but starting to question my thinking on that!! I love her show and its sad when fox starts to bow down to the same level as most of the media channels that sux
Judge Jeanine only spoke the truth!!! Is Fox now running scared to support their reporters who report the truth?
