Judge Napolitano and Fox News

On the 17th of this month, Judge Andrew Napolitano was dropped as an official commentator for Fox News. His show, Freedom Watch, had ended in 2012 after a run of three years. It wasn’t renewed, which in my opinion was because Rupert Murdoch and the head honchos of Fox News felt very uncomfortable with his staunch “libertarian conservative” views on today’s politics.

Judge Napolitano, from the beginning in 2009, was a thorn in the overall ideological make-up of Fox. This is because Fox does not stand for freedom and strictly limited government. They merely stand for a “conservative mega-state” instead of a “liberal mega-state.”

What’s worse, Fox endorses the neo-conservatives’ drive for world hegemony.

    Fox news stands for which ever way the wind blows the dollars. It is neither conservative, liberal or libertarian and it certainly is NOT "Fair & Balanced".
    I will say I get the best news from Fox over all the other MSM outlets but the Fox is in fact guarding the hen house.

    Napolitano was on Fox last night. His own show that they dropped a few years ago may not have had high enough ratings. Did anyone look?

    The recent flap over his presence on FOX is because he publicly said that a journalist told him that Obama spying on the Trump campaign was done through the British GCHQ intelligence agency, which works closely with NSA. The British and FOX denied it in a big uproar -- but they all denied a lot of what GCHQ and NSA were proved to be doing.

    Fox reallly ticked me off when they took Freedom Watch off of the air. I think what was the deciding factor in pulling his show was when he had John Sununu, liberal republican, on his show. The judge made a statement and Sununu went into a tirade. I think sununu was totally out of place with his critique of the judge. The judge was off the air within a week. It was a setup. Fox has shown over the ensuing years that they are not conservative but the typical northeast liberal republican that the republican party does not need. Let them go, who needs them? I wish the Judge and a few other ones at Fox would leave and start a new network. They would kill Fox.

    The loss of Napolitano on FOX is a great loss for FOX fans. The judge has been one of the few strict voices of the Constitution with a logical presentation and clear communication that teaches so subtly that one is unaware that he's being taught. Murdoch will regret losing this excellent teacher and scholar.

    "At the risk of hyperbole, the neocons are insane and are driving us toward WW III "
    We take it as a fact that major powers of the world won't engage in full-scale war. Through most of history, the thinking was major powers were bound eventually to end up in full-scale war. As WWII begins to fall out of living memory, we are complacent that no form of a "nuclear holocaust" could ever happen.

    I'm optimistic that trade obviates the spoils of war. But we are not completely safe from large-scale war.

    The article talks about globalism. I think globalism is a fact of life that started around the time of cheap air travel and the Internet. Imperialism, though, is a choice.

    He's back on the air. Have seen him several times in the past couple of days. Looks like it was a short suspension. Don't know if all the protest emails to Fox had any effect or they never intended a permanent removal.

    Not all of you may agree with me, but as far as "somewhat near the truth" I pick the Wall Street Journal. Although I don't always agree with them, they are most often closer to my understanding of topics than any other media. Example: They had a reasonably fair reporting of the "ISP's now rule the world" story than any other media that hit me, including technical publications.
