Fox News has indefinitely removed contributor Andrew Napolitano from its programming, following an unsubstantiated claim he made on air last week and that was refuted by U.S. intelligence officials, according to a report. The Los Angeles Times reported Monday that Napolitano has not made any appearances on Fox since last Thursday. Citing an anonymous source, the paper said Napolitano "is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future." The Washington Examiner has asked a Fox spokesperson for confirmation of the report. Napolitano last week tried to bolster President Trump´s own previous and unfounded claim
I moved two years ago and don´t have cable anymore. At first I missed Fox News because I would have it on as noise during the day when there is absolutely nothing to watch on TV. So glad it is gone. That network has gone to crap. Never liked Ted Baxter (Bill O) and Shep is just sickening. Don´t know how they keep their audience.
He has a choice. If he had sources (and hearing it at the time, live on Fox Business News with Stuart Varney, I couldn’t imagine he didn’t have sources whether he wanted to reveal them or not), he could exonerate himself...
Unsubstantiated claim? That´s a good one. First of all, all Napolitano did was relay what he was told to him by others. Since when does that have to be substantiated? Is he supposed to play a tape of those conversations? Plus, he´s not a REPORTER who is supposed to substantiate their claims but never do, just put their crap out there. Think CBS, NBC, ABC, PMSNBC, CNBC, PBS.

Murdoch spawn are libs. Saw Lachlan one night in London- he was drunk and obnoxious in a small, elegant bar. The barman said - it happened frequently. Maybe it is time to cut cable- sick of liars. Nedra Tanden and Emanuel on Sunday Mornin were disgusting. Nothing "fair and balanced" when they talk over others and spout lies. Bring back Judge Nap!
Something very sinister going on here. The movement to take down Trump has reached a fever pitch. Fox news is allowing Shepard Smith to continue his ranting and raving hate Trump pitch while they dismiss Napolitano who appears to be one of the most honest, smart legal voices at Fox. The FBI and other intelligence agencies are getting full coverage on Fox News as they appear before Congress with their obvious lies about their covert activities pertaining to bringing Trump down.
Wake up America......the movement is proceeding full speed ahead in bring down our President and they must be stopped !!
FOX lets Judge Napolitano go and keep Shep Smith and that Emmanual moron. Going out of their way to lose viewers. To bad there isn´t another "fair and balanced" station for all of the other on air people to jump ship and I´d be willing to bet they would if they didn´t need the job. Would love to be a fly on the wall down there.
Fox News has been devoid of "news" for some time. The other outlets are guilty of covering only "news" that fits their playbook, but at least they cover something. When was the last time Fox had a reporter on the ground reporting anything? Too vapid for my tastes since the election.
Harf, Rivera, Manuel,Smith and Williams, plus Rove throwing constant shade on the Donald, O´Reilly relentlessly telling our guy what he should do, andWallace doing his best to put the knife in on Sunday, it´s no wonder Trump turns to tweeting. The Murdock boys and their wives are at work.
Have a feeling they wanted to get rid of the Judge and this gave them the reason.
It looks like Fox got the same kind of illness that beset Democrats when they voted for Obamacare, etc and basically fell on their swords, got subsequently voted out next election because of their actions. Well if they want to walk the plank, head on out and we´ll even push. Talk about indoctrination and headed for ruin! All those Fox personalities mentioned above are tanking the channel and it looks like they are racing for the bottom. The roll down hill all probably started about the time Fox caved to George Soros in getting rid of Glenn Beck. Beck said in one broadcast Soros spent one million dollars to kill his 170 show and get him ousted.
I quit Fox a long time ago. But when my wife told me about Tucker Carlson, if I can remember when he is on I watch him. He´s a master at taking down dims.
Also, there is a fairly new network on cable. That is One America News Network, it your cable carries it. If not, it has a web site. And another web site, (I don´t know if it has a broadcast network but it´s available on the net) is AXIOS. Both of these are conservative new outfits.
Obama and his cadre of liars,in Government and the MSM, spouted falsehoods throughout his Presidency and not a peep was made by anyone. save Fox News. Now Fox is being stupid at the least in suspending the Good Judge. Chances are Obama and his henchmen and the British Secret Service did what Andrew Napolitano said, but they covered their tracts well!?
It be great if evidence surfaced to vindicate President Trump and the Good Judge soon?
The man who told Napolitano the information confirmed he was the person on Brian Stalter´s show. I don´t think Stalter is smart enough to have figured it out, but it´s posted on Twitter.
Any way, this is a good way to keep Napolitano from saying anything more. I´m guessing he is going to be called in to testify as a witness, so best not to get him to say anything more that could possibly conflict or reveal who the dirty people are.
I think this was more of a protection plan for the Judge than anything else.

#26 set up a twitter account. Sheer volume of tweets work. Tweet Bill Shine and Neil Cavuto. Neil is a VPtook me a bit to get the hang of it but I did.
I´ve decided Shep Smith´s bias is to offset Hannity´s bias. I agree with Hannity but deplore his ego driven style. I disagree with Shep but admittedly admire his equally ego driven style. Except for his Katrina meltdown, IMO, no one anchors a natural disaster as well as Shep. Hannity couldn´t come close. We would have to hear how he once washed dishes, roofed houses or hurt his shoulder in the midst of someone´s personal loss. I am certain being a son if the south drove She´s Katrina meltdown.
Yet FNC continues to air contributors who push unsubstantiated memes more consistent with Establishment thought. (Not to mention that the good judge´s claims are embarrassing to the Establishment intelligence community.) Should anyone be surprised? What News Corp. chooses to air on broadcast FNS should be the "tell" - not much different from what you will see on the other broadcast alphabets. Why are Chris Wallace and Shep Smith News Corp´s faces to the general public? FNC has just become a place to "park" those with a more conservative bent, and use their numbers to build up the company. Now is is time for News Corp. to "move on".
It is time for us to "move on", too. Fortunately, there are other outlets for our news, and the number is increasing.

I hasten to say that I don´t think Fox gives a damn. Early this morning it channel flipped and there was the pontificating, purer than pure, nasty, truly ugly AB Stoddard spewing her crap while attempting to look as though she´s just bodily ascended into the heavenly stratosphere. She´s a pig which means they are booking her continually if only to annoy people like me.
Andrew Napolitano is one reason I´ve continued with some Fox—and the whiz kids have now killed him too. Keep it up, Fox.I´m now seeing bumper stickers that say; Turn off FOX. You won´t miss it. I have all but tuned out—just a limited number of programs and so far I don´t miss anything.

I like the judge too! Watch Fox & Friends, Hannity, O´Reilly sometimes & Tucker now that "Blondie" is gone. Lou Dobbs & Varney are also on my schedule along with "old time" movies on many channels. Sure miss "old America" but also realize this is Divine Design - hope Trump can fulfill his mission.
Between listening to Rush and reading Lucianne & Drudge, I have a pretty good handle on things. After seeing that Neera Tanden witch on Fox News Sunday, along with Rahm Emmanuel´s brother, and Chris Wallace, I just turned it off. Garbage. Why on earth would they pay to have than Tanden thing on there? Not only wrong, but extremely obnoxious.
New details are emerging about the FBI’s arrangement with the former British spy who compiled the infamous opposition research dossier on Donald Trump. According to The New York Times, FBI agents met in early October with the former spy, Christopher Steele, to discuss his future work on the dossier. Steele had started compiling research in June on Trump’s potential ties to Russia. He was working for Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm that was a client of an ally of Hillary Clinton’s. The Times reports that Steele and the FBI settled on a $50,000 payout if the ex-MI6 agent could
Former President Barack Obama may not be making an endorsement in France´s upcoming presidential election, but his former deputy national security adviser is warning that a win for right-wing leader Marine Le Pen would be "devastating." "A Le Pen victory would be devastating to any mainstream definition of US interests and values since WWII," Ben Rhodes said in a tweet Saturday. (Tweet) Rhodes´ warning is quite a bit more drastic than the measured statement former President Barack Obama´s spokesman put out last week about his conversation with another French candidate, Emmanuel Macron. While Obama did not endorse Macron, spokesman Kevin
This week’s edition of Time Magazine named former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to its list of the 100 Most Influential People. The list breaks down the chosen 100 into five categories: Pioneers, Artists, Leaders, Titans, and Icons. Kaepernick appears in the Icons group. In the Time Magazine profile, former SF 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh praised the controversial quarterback’s protest last year of the Star Spangled Banner, “when he boldly and courageously confronted perceived inequalities in our social-justice system by refusing to stand for the national anthem.” Harbaugh made no mention of Kaepernick’s penchant for wearing socks denigrating law
Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance at the Tribeca Film Festival Saturday night. Clinton was an unannounced panelist, who appeared to discuss the scourge of elephant poaching. The former secretary of state sat alongside Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow, who was premiering her new virtual reality short, The Protectors: Walk in the Rangers´ Shoes. ´Thanks for seeing this remarkable film which brings to reality what we´re up against,´ said Clinton. Scroll down for video (Photos) Bigelow´s film is about park rangers trying to save elephants from poachers in Garamba National Park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Clinton spoke about
Retail giant Sears said it will close 50 auto centers and 92 underperforming pharmacies inside Kmart stores in a bid to further cut costs in the face of rising red ink. The cuts come just four months after the Hoffman Estates, Illl-based retailer announced it would close 150 Sears and Kmart department stores across the country. At the time, CEO Edward Lampert said the company needed to reduce operating costs by $1 billion. In announcing the new round of closures Friday, Lampert said the cost cuts would now total $1.25 billion. In addition to the auto centers and pharmacies, the
After a horrible turn of events for brilliant political voice, Bill O’Reilly, he is going to be returning to the public eye once more on Monday with the latest episode of his podcast “No Spin News”. (Photo) Bill O’Reilly’s website announced Saturday evening that the new podcast would be available Monday, just one day after Fox News removed his show permanently. Friday night saw Greg Gutfeld hosting the final episode of the wildly successful “The Factor”. He closed the show with this statement: “How do I turn out the lights on such a venerable and amazing show? I can’t. It’s
Rep. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Calif., told a sixth grader last week that she should be worried because President Trump is more dangerous than a terrorist. During the Q&A portion of a town hall event held at Stanley Middle School in Lafayette, Calif., DeSaulnier took a final question from 11-year-old Eden, according to a report published Saturday. It was past her bedtime and she had given her question to a school staff member to be asked, the report said. The question included an anecdote of how the young girl´s mother cried on election night and how she is personally worried that her
Ever since L. Frank Baum’s works started passing into the public domain in 1956, any number of adaptations and reinterpretations have appeared, from the 1978 filming of the Broadway musical The Wiz to Gregory Maguire’s 1995 novel Wicked, and down to the confusing 2017 television series Emerald City. But the fact that a text is royalty-free doesn’t exempt authors from the ordinary courtesy of acknowledging their source material. The political reporters Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes ought to be ashamed that they didn’t mention where they’d found the plot for their new book, Shattered. In the early pages of Shattered,
Kori Ali Muhammad, suspected of killing four people in Fresno, California, this week during a racially motivated shooting spree, entered a courtroom Friday shouting racially charged demands. “Let black people go in reparations,” Muhammad screamed twice. He also warned that natural disasters in America will increase, ABC News reports. The outbursts prompted Muhammad’s lawyer, Eric Christensen, to tell the judge he believes his client “may not be mentally competent to proceed.” Fresno County Superior Court Judge W. Kent Hamlin obliged and ordered that a doctor examine Muhammad. CBS News published raw footage of the rant: (Video) The 39-year-old suspect has been
There could not be a better example of liberal media double standards than the kerfuffle over former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin posing in front of Hillary Clinton’s White House portrait (as First Lady) with rock stars Kid Rock and Ted Nugent. The ladies of The View had their knickers in a knot. “You’re in the White House. Bring a little class with you!” sniffed Sara Haines as her co-hosts agreed in one way or another. Really? Really? Clearly The View crew (not to mention Palin’s critics) seem to have forgotten this story as recounted back in 2012 in Philadelphia Magazine.
President Trump awarded a Purple Heart to a wounded service member during a Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Saturday. During the short ceremony, the president placed the Purple Heart on the right lapel of Sgt. First Class Alvaro Barrientos, according to a pool report. When I heard about this and I wanted to do this, myself," Trump said, thanking the service member. Trump´s wife Melania was also in attendance. Barrientos was recently injured while deployed in Afghanistan and for the wounds he sustained, he received the Purple Heart, a White House official said. Barrientos´ wife Tammy was also
President Trump announces a rally in Harrisburg Pennsylvania for Saturday April 29th at 7:30pm. In addition to being the 100th day of the Trump administration, it is also the same night as the self-congratulating White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington DC. Too funny. Subtle, like a brick through a window. (Tweet) President Trump was at this venue for a rally almost exactly a year ago. April 21st 2016 (Photo)
Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists has warned during a conference at Yale University. Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country. (Snip) James Gilligan, a psychiatrist and professor at New York University, told the conference he had worked some of the “most dangerous people in society”, including murderers and rapists — but that he was convinced by the “dangerousness” of Mr
The Obamas have been taking a much-deserved break from politics since moving out of the White House. But next week, it´s back to reality. President Barack Obama will be in Chicago on Monday to discuss community organization and civic engagement. As we all know, the Obamas have impeccable taste in food, so it wouldn´t be surprising to see the former president surveying the Chicago dining scene when he returns stateside. Will he visit the renowned Alinea? Or return to an old Obama favorite, Spiaggia? Last September, my husband and I had a chance run-in with Barack and Michelle, who were in New York City for their last visit as
A review of Donald Trump´s business career would lead one to say that he has always over-promised and under-delivered. Whether his long list of bankruptcies in the ever-profitable casino business, the failures of his "university,´ steak, vodka or clothing lines, there has been a history of putting himself first, while ignoring the needs of his constituents. We may be seeing that play out in his approach to government, as well. As in business, Trump has a constituency of one … himself … just ask his stock and bond investors, his suppliers, contractors, laborers, or even his customers. Unlike Trump, they rarely,
Tucker Carlson is moving to the much-coveted 8 pm time slot on Fox News on Monday, and with it comes news from Fox today that his first big interview will be with none other than Caitlyn Jenner. Per Fox News, Carlson and Jenner will speak on issues including “President Donald Trump’s administration, the current political climate and divide in America, as well as her thoughts on how to bring Americans together.” Jenner is returning to 20/20 tonight to speak once again with Diane Sawyer, and her appearance on Fox News Monday comes after Jenner’s comments to Sawyer about how while
Steel yourselves. Barack Obama’s about to emerge from the shadows — and first stop, University of Chicago. Why there? No doubt, it’s one of the more receptive breeding grounds for his particular brand of activism — the activism he’ll be touting to malleable student-age minds while engaging in, as his people called it, a “conversation about community organizing and civic engagement.” Make no mistake about it. This is about teaching the upcoming generation, loud as it already is about all topics that offend, to get even louder, even Leftist Prouder, and to — here’s the gist — use that Leftist
A Chicago artist has finished his mural of Michelle Obama in a colorful image that features the former first lady as an Egyptian queen. The painting by artist Chris Devins was completed Friday on the southeast corner of Chappel Avenue and 74th Street in South Shore. That´s two blocks from the former first lady´s childhood home at 7436 S. Euclid Ave. and across the street from Bouchet Elementary, which she attended when it was known as Bryn Mawr School. "I wanted to present her as what I think she is, so she´s clothed as an Egyptian queen. I thought that was appropriate,"
Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers
A Harvard University office devoted to LGBT issues reportedly has issued a flier telling students that gender identity can change as frequently as “day to day.” The flier from the Ivy League schools BGLTQ Student Life office, headlined “Get the facts about gender diversity,” informs readers that “Sex assigned at birth and gender identity are not necessarily the same,” Campus Reform reported Thursday. The flyer adds that “gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, hormonal makeup, physical anatomy, and/or how one is perceived in daily life.” The document also seems to categorize speech that challenges or disagrees with transgenderism as “violence.” “Transphobic misinformation is a
The September 2016 article in Politico championing Hillary Clinton’s use of "data analytics" now looks—how shall we put it?—rather premature. Politico swooned that computer algorithms "underlie nearly all of the Clinton campaign´s most important strategic decisions." Computer guru Elan Kriegel had crunched the numbers for campaign manager Robby Mook, allowing Team Clinton to precisely target her potential voters and thus not waste one dime on appealing to the deplorables. "Clintonites saw it as their secret weapon in building an insurmountable delegate lead over Bernie Sanders," Politico reported. And come the general election the Clintonistas were downright giddy about the edge Big Data
American Airlines suspended a flight attendant after an altercation on Friday in which the attendant took a stroller from a woman traveling with two young children and then argued with other passengers. The episode was captured, in part, on video. The encounter, at San Francisco International Airport, occurred while the woman was boarding a Texas-bound flight. The attendant, whose name was not released by the airline, grabbed the stroller from the woman, who was carrying 15-month-old twins, a passenger who was nearby said.
Former President Barack Obama will make his first public appearance Monday, hosting an event on civic engagement on his old stomping grounds at the University of Chicago. The event, open to the public but with limited tickets, will bring together younger leaders and students “for a conversation on community organizing and civic engagement.” It won’t be an explicitly political event. As an Illinois state senator, Obama once represented the neighborhood where the campus is located and also was a law professor at the university. He last stopped by the campus in 2016, using an event at the law school to make a
The Trump administration put nine of the country’s top sanctuary cities on notice Friday that they could soon have to give up some federal funds unless they can prove they are no longer thwarting Homeland Security’s efforts to deport illegal immigrants. The entire state of California is being targeted, as are the cities of New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Las Vegas, New Orleans and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Cook County in Illinois and Miami-Dade County in Florida round out the list. In letters to each of the nine jurisdictions the Justice Department said they signed documents last year, when they applied for Byrne
