Fox News Boycott WINS! Judge Jeanine Pirro Returns to Fox News on Saturday!
Ever since Fox News booted Judge Jeanine Pirro, there have been huge calls for a boycott of the news organization, and it seems that it worked. Reports are that Pirro will return to her show on Fox on Saturday. March 30 in her regular spot. In almost a decade of working in social media, I have never seen conservatives so outraged.
Judge Jeanine Pirro was booted off Fox News following remarks she made about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) several weeks ago.
They had caved to CAIR complaining about remarks she made about Sharia law on her show.
Pirro’s opinion show, “Justice With Judge Jeanine,” which airs on Saturday night, has not aired for the last two weeks, as Fox executives decided what they should do. It seems the people decided.
The Los Angeles Times reported that she will return back on the air on March 30.
CNN is also reporting that she would only be suspended for a total of two weeks.
The following is comment she made on her show.
“Is Rep. Omar’s adherence to the Islamic doctrine an indication of her adherence to Sharia Law, which is antithetical to the US Constitution”?
Fox News has been on shaky ground for a few years with its base of support. It looks like this bad decision finally hit their pocketbook.
Pirro even received support from President Donald Trump, who urged the network to “bring back” her show.
Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro. The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country. They have all out campaigns against @FoxNews hosts who are doing too well. Fox …..

Additionally, Trump said Fox should “stay strong and fight back with vigor. Stop working soooo hard on being politically correct, which will only bring you down, and continue to fight for our Country. The losers all want what you have, don’t give it to them. Be strong & prosper, be weak & die!”
“Keep fighting for Tucker, and fight hard for @JudgeJeanine. Your competitors are jealous—they all want what you’ve got—NUMBER ONE. Don’t hand it to them on a silver platter. They can’t beat you, you can only beat yourselves!” he wrote.
Fox News had condemned her statement. “We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar,” the network said. “They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”
Pirro clarified her remarks.
“I’ve seen a lot of comments about my opening statement from Saturday night’s show and I did not call Rep. Omar un-American,” she said. “My intention was to ask a question and start a debate, but of course because one is Muslim does not mean you don’t support the Constitution. I invite Rep. Omar to come on my show any time to discuss all of the important issues facing America today.”
Since Rupert Murdock left the station to the care of his 2 sons, Fox has continued to move to the left.
We have no choice now, but to continue to hold Fox News’ feet to the fire. They made their name being ‘Fair and Balanced’. Yo stop doing that now would be suicide for the network. They have created a reputation for themselves.
