CNN Uses Unidentified Source To Report that Judge Jeanine Has Been Suspended, No Comment from Fox
CNN Uses Unidentified Source To Report that Judge Jeanine Has Been Suspended, No Comment from Fox nobody seems to know for certain whether Fox News had reprimanded Jeanine Pirro after the network pulled “Justice with Judge Jeanine” from its Saturday evening slot in favor of an episode of “Scandalous.” CNN said a “source familiar with the matter” told the network that Pirro has been suspended. Fox News, meanwhile, told ABC News, “We’re not commenting on internal scheduling matters.” The controversy stems from Pirro’s program on March 9, when the judge questioned Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar for contentious statements about Israelis and Palestinians for which President Trump had asserted the freshman representative “should resign,” ABC News reported. “Think about it: Omar wears a hijab. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which is antithetical to the U.S. Constitution?” Pirro asked. The morning after Pirro’s commentary — wherein she seemingly questioned the congresswoman’s loyalty to America — Fox News condemned the judge’s remarks, according to The Hill. Deadline reported that Fox News hadn’t explained why it replaced the judge’s show Saturday.
