Will Fox News Put "Freedom Watch" Back On?
If you like Judge Andrew Napolitano on Facebook you probably saw this post:
Many of you are not happy with the cancellation of FreedomWatch, and you have sent emails to my Fox colleagues expressing that unhappiness. In television, shows are cancelled all the time. Two of my former shows have been cancelled, and after each cancellation, Fox has rewarded me with more and better work. This cancellation--along with others that accompanied it--was the result of a business judgment here, and is completely unrelated to the FreedomWatch message. It would make a world of a difference for all of us, if you would KINDLY STOP SENDING EMAILS TO FOX.
I am well. Your values are strong. I will continue to articulate those values here at Fox. But the emails many of you are sending are unfairly interfering with my work and that of my colleagues here. The emails even violate our values because they interfere with the use of private property. I have accepted the cancellation decision with good cheer and a sense of gearing up for the future. You should as well.
As a favor to me, and as I have asked this past weekend, PLEASE STOP SENDING EMAILS TO MY COLLEAGUES AT FOX ABOUT THE CANCELLATION OF FreedomWatch; and please stop NOW.
All the best, apn."
Well guess what, it has been confirmed that this is not Judge Andrew Napolitano. As I was told by one of the old producers of Freedom Watch: "It's Somebody Else".
That is right, Fox News is playing the a really dirty trick; they are getting someone to act like they are Judge Andrew Napolitano.
Here is my complaint to Fox Business:
"All tyranny needs to gain is a foothold for people of good conscience to remain silent."
Really though, Fox News doing this is a good thing; as this is the lowest they can go. Are they on the edge of putting Freedom Watch back on, well maybe.
