Et tu, Brute? Very fitting that we just passed the Ides of March. This is the very reason I no longer watch Fox news. It seems that 2 of the hosts on Fox News worked behind the scenes to get Judge Jeanine Pirro suspended for two weeks.
Sources say that Bret Baier insisted on the suspension to win favor from the Democrats and NeverTrumper and resident liberal, Shepard Smith, was the second host to push for suspension. Smith has the lowest rating of all of the Fox hosts.
Pirro was suspended over remarks she made against terrorist linked Ilhan Omar and her antisemitic tropes. Omar has close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, who created Al Qaeda and Hamas. Last weekend, she and Rashida Tlaib helped raise funds for terrorist-linked CAIR.
The source asked TGP for anonymity to speak freely about the behinds the scenes maneuvers:
The original complaint came from Bret Baier’s team. Bret saw an opportunity to make Fox News acceptable enough to the left, so he could get himself a job of hosting the Democratic Debates. Bret supported one of his producers, Hufsa Kamal, in tweeting out a condemnation of Judge Jeanine to putpressure on Fox News to suspend her show. Hufsa Kamal, a producer of Special Report with Bret Baier, has a history of anti-conservative tweets.
Shepard Smith, known as a “never-Trumper”, also played a major role in the Judge’s suspension. “He lobbied 24/7 to suspend her.”
Fox News placed Jerry Andrews, a far-left, anti-conservative as Executive Producer of Justice with Judge Jeanine to “muzzle Judge Jeanine from speaking the truth.” Andrews has a long history of anti-conservative, anti-Trump social media activity.
Fox News has made no official statement on Pirro’s future with the cable network, other than to say it would not comment on “internal scheduling matters,” as the network abruptly pulled her regularly scheduled Justice with Judge Jeanine show last Saturday night and has apparently canceled this upcoming Saturday’s show. Anonymous sources have filled in TGP and other outlets reputed backstabbing maneuvering against Pirro.
Fox has not committed to returning Pirro back on the air.
