Out-Foxed.

March 19, 2019

Fox News, which bills itself as “fair and balanced” seems to have gotten a little teetery recently.

In this case the network seems to have gotten a little politically correct in suspending or maybe banning one of their weekend opinion hosts, Jeannine Pirro.

We have to admit we usually don’t listen to Pirro as it conflicts with another show. We didn’t hear the actual broadcast, and had to look it up to see what it was that she said that was so awful.

After listening, we thought Really? So she isn’t a big fan of anti-Semitism or Sharia law. That’s her opinion.  Isn’t this supposed to be an opinion show?

Quite frankly she’s been just as outspoken on a lot of issues, and her New York delivery style is just as irritating on those issues.

Fox is known for having people from both sides of the aisle on many of its shows, and some of them on the left are pretty damn annoying.

Here’s the deal. You don’t have to watch. Shepherd Smith, Juan Williams, etc. are indeed about as far left as you can go. We always thought that was part of the fair and balanced thing, and we can and do find something else to watch at 3 p.m. ET, and we can hit “mute” if we get too tired of listening to Juan blame everything wrong in the world on white folks.

But suspending a host of an opinion show for having an opinion amounts to censorship by the network.

Knock it off, or lose the fair and balanced tagline.
