Well, we just had it confirmed.
We all suspected that Judge Jeanine Pirro didn’t just “decide to take a vacation” last year.
We all suspected that Fox News suspended her.
And today we learned not only is that correct but she expects Fox is looking for any way possible to fire her.
How sad to see what has happened to Fox News!
Rupert Murdock must be rolling over in his grave!
From the USA Today:
Jeanine Pirro got honest about her recent experiences with Fox News.
The "Justice with Judge Jeanine" host was caught criticizing her show's network, admitting Fox News had suspended her, and she is worried she is on thin ice.
The comments came as cameras rolled during the 68-year-old's Tuesday appearance on Sebastian Gorka's show on Salem Radio Network. Gorka, a former Fox News contributor, told Pirro between segments he'd love to have her on his show again in the near future.
"We'll see if they let me. You know, Fox reviews everything. They’re unbelievable," she remarked, though Gorka had cautioned Pirro earlier, "we're still live."
Pirro, who mentioned she had an appearance on longtime Fox News host Sean Hannity's program Tuesday night, said the network was holding her back from other appearances.
“They are still saying 'you cannot do Bill O’Reilly, you cannot do Newsmax.' "
Pirro also admitted the network suspended her.
"You know what? They suspended me," she said. "They suspended me, and I’m not going to get fired. You know I’m worried that that suspension was the basis to tee up for anything I do wrong, they’ll fire me.”
During her suspension, President Donald Trump came to her defense on Twitter.
"Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro," he wrote. "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."
Here's the full exchange, according to Wayne Dupree:
Fox News host Jeanine Pirro slammed her employers and complained about the network suspending her during a Tuesday appearance on former White House aide Seb Gorka’s show.
While talking over a commercial break that was broadcasted on Gorka’s YouTube livestream, Pirro told the host that she may not be able to appear on his Salem Radio program in-person due to Fox News barring her from a number of conservative outlets, saying, “Fox reviews everything. They’re unbelievable.”
“They’re still saying you cannot do Bill O’Reilly, you cannot do Newsmax,” she added, which Gorka — a former Fox News contributor — called “a shame.”
“They suspended me,” the Justice host admitted. “I’m not going to get fired. You know I’m worried that that suspension was the basis to tee up for anything I do wrong, they’ll fire me.”
Mediaite contacted Fox News for comment on Pirro’s attacks but the network declined to comment.
Pirro was suspended by Fox News in the spring for anti-Muslim comments.
Last week she repeated the white supremacist “great replacement” conspiracy theory during a Fox News Radio interview with Todd Starnes.
“Their plot to remake America is to bring in the illegals, change the way the voting occurs in this country, give them licenses. They get to vote—maybe once, maybe twice, maybe three times,” she said — echoing a belief pushed by the white extremist who recently carried out a racially-motivated shooting in El Paso, Texas. “Think about it. It is a plot to remake America—to replace American citizens with illegals who will vote for the Democrats.” [Mediaite]
