Fox News Suspends Dash Peters

Fox News Suspends Two Contributors Over Anti-Obama Expletives

Fox News has issued two-week suspensions to on-air contributors Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and Stacey Dash, after each used expletives in critiquing President Barack Obama’s Sunday-night speech from the Oval Office, where he discussed terrorism abroad and at home.

Appearing Monday on Fox Business Network, Peters was discussing the American public’s fervor for action to be taken against ISIS when he said of Obama, “We want you to react, do something. You’re afraid. I mean, this guy is such a total pu–y, it’s stunning.”

Dash meanwhile was a guest on Fox News’ Outnumbered when she criticized what she saw as a lack of passion in the president’s rare Oval Office speech, suggesting that he was in a hurry to say his piece and get to the Kennedy Center Honors. “I didn’t feel any passion from him…. I felt like he could give a s–t — excuse me, like he could care less,” she said, catching herself. “He could care less.”

Not long after the Monday morning appearances, Fox News and Fox Business SVP Bill Shine issued a statement saying, “Fox contributors Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and Stacey Dash made comments on different programs that were completely inappropriate and unacceptable for our air. Fox Business Network and Fox News Channel do not condone the use of such language, and have suspended both Peters and Dash for two weeks.”

Do you think Dash and or Peters crossed a line in delivering political commentary?

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    This is bull. They were putting out truth bombs. I wish more people had the guts to say it like it is. *smh*

    • Ann says:

      Yes, I agree. But I think the problem was that they didn’t need to cuss. It was unprofessional and inappropriate.

      • Michael says:

        I’m glad that someone has the guts to tell it like it is! Most Americans who aren’t brainwashed feel the same way. We need more people like them to speak the truth. The president is an embarrassment and a pacifist coward. He is the worst president in my lifetime and maybe the worst one ever!

        • Big Mike says:

          They’re paid to be intelligent and eloquent with their opinions. I don’t care what their opinions are, language like that proves that they’re neither.

          • tvjunkie says:

            Stacey is an actress not a journalist and the other guy is retired military, so I can understand the swear words slipping out, but it shouldnt happen on air. Of course if it was MSNBC and they were talking about Paul Ryan you can be sure they would have gotten a raise and lots of applause instead of a suspension.

          • fiberlicious says:

            The wonderful irony is that in mangling what should have been COULDN’T care less, she unintentionally spoke the truth: He COULD care less…because he cares a lot.

          • Curtis Posey says:

            So is your Muslim President who is supposed to keep this country safe yet hhas always bowed to our enemies, would you rather hear cuss words or be dead ???????

        • heraldo says:

          I would call it “Free Speech”. These individuals and any voter with an ounce of sense are frustrated.

          • Mary says:

            Please look up what free speech is. I call it ignorance, there is a way to get your view across without being degrading and disrespectful, a quality that many obviously have never learned or been taught.

          • jj says:

            I don’t think you understand what freedom of speech actually means…

          • tvjunkie says:

            Free speech has its limits and not swearing on a live tv news broadcast is one of those limits. Again some of you are confusing the sentiment of what they said the swear words they used. They were suspending for swearing not because of their opinions.

          • fiberlicious says:

            Oh for f….the “free speech” clause applies ONLY to the GOVERNMENT interfering with speech. There is absolutely NO “right” to be a glassbowl (thank you, Hax).

        • Soffie says:

          I disagree. You obviously have not laid your life on the line to keep America free. A lot people who don’t realize or even care about the lives that was lost or destroyed by sending soldiers into harms way. You probably have never lost a close friend in this senseless war. If you haven’t experienced any of the heartaches or loss, you should do a little more research. These people spoke about things they don’t know about. Unless they’re willing to go out and get shot at or can’t sleep because they’re getting bomb, they should be quiet and let our leader do his job.

          • SJ says:

            Exactly !!! Everyone is so quick to say send in our troops but aren’t signing up to go!!! How convenient …

          • Kirstie says:

            ….So Lt. Col. Ralph Peters doesn’t know what he was talking about? Really? I would say as someone who was, to quote you, “willing to go out and get shot,” he can have any opinion he wants. I am not defending what he said, but he served, and more likely than lost friends. You said he he spoke about things he did not know about- so either you skipped reading the actual article or don’t know what Lt. Col. Stand for. Either way, follow your own advice.

          • John NYC says:

            Check his career: Peters was a REMF all his time in service. Desk brass leveraging his desk job for cash.

          • tvjunkie says:

            So you’d rather the terrorists come here and kill our civilians? You don’t seriously think that if we leave them alone they’ll leave us alone? That thought coming from the left and spearheaded by Obama is so delusional anyone thinking that including Obama is in serious need of mental help.

          • Angela says:

            So you’d rather the terrorists come here and kill our civilians? You don’t seriously think that if we leave them alone they’ll leave us alone?
            .
            There’s nothing in Soffle’s post that implies such a thing? And nobody on the left thinks that, or wants that? But way to make ridiculous, baseless assumptions.

        • Simon Jester says:

          “Most Americans who aren’t brainwashed feel the same way.” — Manifestly not, since Obama won the popular vote in both of his elections.

          • tvjunkie says:

            Well that was largely because a lot of his base is poor and poorly educated and just voted for “the black man”. I saw numerous random people interviewed on local newscasts who said exactly that, they voted for him because he was black. They didn’t seem to know much else about him or his beliefs/ideas.

        • Angela says:

          When did we decide that not going on yet ANOTHER bombing campaign across a certain part of the world makes somebody a coward? We’ve been bombing the crap out of other parts of the world for years now and it clearly doesn’t seem to be solving a damn thing. All it does is further fuel the violence and make these terrorist groups have something to rail against to help gather followers.
          .
          Believe it or not, people, it IS possible to go after these threats without needing to bomb an entire country back into the Stone Age to do so. To say nothing of the fact that a full-scale war is kind of expensive, and I don’t know about you, but I’m not really in the mood to add to our country’s debt any further.

          • tvjunkie says:

            Then you must be smarter than Obama, which is not difficult, because he has failed miserably to find another solution to the problem. Why don’t your idea with the class if you’re so smart? I suspect you don’t actually have any good ideas and are just talking out the other end, like most lefties.

        • Carm says:

          So if someone does not think or feel exactly as you do that person is brainwashed? That is so ridiculous.

        • Joe says:

          Wow, you’re only 7 years old?

        • Mary says:

          So you had no problem when the Dixie Chicks talked smack about the President? Funny I seem to recall that their career went kaput when it happened. What we need is more level headed human beings that need to think before ranting about a subject they know little about. That is half the problem with the Country today. It is okay not to like everything a President stands for, but it is not okay to show such lack of respect.

        • Tina says:

          Thank you for saying that I AGREE

      • Bill Johnson says:

        Fox is turning into msnbc – shame on Fox and Ailes

      • Rogj says:

        She as no respect not everything is war be careful what we wish for good over evil love and respect everyone no matter what

    • Jimmy says:

      It’s not what they said, it’s how they said it. I don’t care if you hate the president, he’s still the President of the United States until the next person comes along. Calling any president, Republican or Democrat, a pussy is unnecessary in the extreme.

      • Eli says:

        I agree with the commentators but the language was not appropriate due to the FCC laws. The problem was the use of the words s*** and p****, If they used similar words deemed appropriate they would not have been suspended.

        • tvjunkie says:

          It has nothing to do with the FCC. What you’re thinking of doesn’t apply to cable channels. Nor does the no nudity rules. Those only apply to over the air broadcast channels, like the major networks and public access channels. If there are any restrictions on cable its far less limited.

      • Jacqueline says:

        I feel the same way. We try to teach our children to respect others and those in authority as well, and this is what comes out of the adults mouths. You don’t have to like the person but respect the position. But then I truly don’t expect any better from those that oppose the president. It doesn’t matter your military or any other status it doesn’t give you the right to disrespect the President of the USA. My dad, grandfather, cousins, nieces and uncles served in the military, and I am sure there were times they were furious about decisions the then presidents did or didn’t make but they never disrespected the President and wouldn’t allow us to do the same. But when you are privileged you can say what you want about who you want.

    • MyExBFF says:

      lemur. enjoy the lack of intelligent public discourse.

    • Carm says:

      Perhaps you do not understand English. This was not about what you thought about the crazy things they were saying (my opinion like you have yours). It was about the fact that certain words are not allowed.

    • John NYC says:

      They were violating FCC obscenity law and risking FOX’s broadcast license.

    • Caro says:

      I remember very clearly Fox News saying that anyone who said anything bad about President Bush was a traitor. Guess we should try these two as traitors, too. Wait, respect is only for white, neo-con, billionaire presidents, right?

      It makes a lot of sense that people like you want to start another war that you don’t want to pay for (that’s what the Chinese are for, right? Why be a patriot and pay taxes?) and that you don’t want to volunteer for (that’s what second-generation Hispanic kids are for, right? Why be a patriot and serve your country?) This way President Trump can bankrupt our country–again–and round up all the people you don’t like and put them in concentration camps, while starting WWIII. Can’t wait.

    • tvjunkie says:

      They were suspended for swearing, not because of the meaning of what they said. I they used words like wimp and rats behind or something like that instead of the words they used there would have been no suspension.

  2. George Wells says:

    They are correct – He doesn’t give a s–t and is also a Pussy !! Sorry pussies !!

  3. Nancy says:

    Isn’t Stacy Dash a washed up actress?

  4. They’re both clueless…

  5. Luis says:

    Wait, Fox has standards?

    • A fan of TV says:

      Yeah, when their announcers do things for which they can or will be sued, they tend to take action. Money talks, as well as anuses, at Fox News…

  6. Kate says:

    Oh dear, my beloved TVLine poked the right-wing nutjobs… what ever happened to respecting the president, even when you disagree with him? I agreed with Bush on NOTHING but I would never condone a TV news personality calling him a pussy.

    • What is there to respect about dumbo and his racist other ?

    • Angela says:

      Yeah, I remember when Bush was president I came across so many of his supporters who found the mere idea of criticizing him offensive, ’cause, “Respect the president no matter what!” Funny how quickly that tune changed when Obama got into office, isn’t it? Not saying people can’t disagree with Obama on something (though it’d be nice if that disagreement was based in logical criticisms), but the hypocrisy is rather noticeable.
      .
      Anywho, this story. Eh, I clearly disagree with their sentiments (apparently we have to go into EVERY single foreign policy situation guns a-blazing otherwise we’re somehow weaklings…not quite following that line of thinking, but okay), but as others have pointed out, considering some of the other stuff that has been said on Fox News, this is actually pretty mild and not necessarily worthy of an actual suspension. But it’s their network and they make the choice, so….*Shrugs*

      • lrdslvrhnd says:

        These were likely also the same people who supported impeaching Clinton, but said that Bush (as a sitting President) shouldn’t have to deal with anything like that, when talk about impeaching *him* over Iraq came up…
        .
        I don’t care who is in office. I don’t care about what you say around the dinner table. But you don’t call the President of the United States a pussy on a national network.
        .
        …Especially if you don’t want to be fined by the FCC. Which I suspect is the only reason Faux News is taking any kind of action. They’re probably giggling behind the curtains about it. But that’s just uncouth and unnecessary.

        • Angela says:

          Well said. On all of this.
          .
          Yeah. I did not agree with, like, 99.9% of what Bush did or said. But if I ever met him, I would still treat him like a human being, and be respectful. And if I had the opportunity to publically disagree with something he did, I would find much better, more mature, ways to express my disagreement.

  7. Temperance says:

    Of course! We, at all costs, have to appear to be *nice* while lying and subverting. It’s the FOX propaganda way!

  8. Eran says:

    They should add a week to her suspension just for “could care less.”

    • Mary says:

      She was right though the president could care less considering he currently cares A LOT about this mess, so it’s not like she was inaccurate he could care less. Not the point I think this highly uneducated woman was trying to make but in her lack of education and basic grammar skills she spoke the truth. The president cares a lot.

      I hate when people screw up that phrase I mean it is so obvious which is correct.

      • dumbo cares so much he has destroyed America.

      • grazelled says:

        He couldn’t care less about the people of San Bernardino County or protecting America if he thinks Americans are the bad guys in all this. We don’t hate Muslims, we get it.

      • Mary says:

        Wow it amazes me how you can jump to the conclusion that the President doesn’t care because he doesn’t fly off the handle and goes about a situation differently than say many of the Republicans. War is not always the answer, as many should realize considering the war Bush put us in. I agree that the Women is highly uneducated, but that can be said for many on this post. Take a look at what is happening in the world today, it is sad that people think violence is the only solution when one doesn’t agree with you.

    • TV Gord says:

      Yes, exactly!

  9. Mary says:

    She said it herself, that Obama cares. She said he could care less. So that means she can tell that he does care.

    Her, on the other hand, I couldn’t care less about.

  10. dj says:

    LtCol Peters has a VERY annoying voice. Come to think of it, so does Ms Dash

  11. Chance says:

    BO is the poster child for The Peter Principle. But pointing to his shortcomings on air is redundant. Any intelligent person is already aware of his inadequacies.

  12. Antonio says:

    I don’t think they cross the line. This is a free speech and unless they use dirty words on the air then I would agree on the suspension. Thanks

    • Sterling says:

      Did you read it? She said Sh*t and he said P*ssy. Both of these words are not allowed on TV without a fine. Fox suspended them because 1.) they will probably have ot pay fines for the language and 2.) Their target demo doesn’t approve of this type of language. Free Speech means the government can’t punish you for saying something they do not agree with. your employer on the other hand can.

      • Annie says:

        Sigh, it’s always so frustrating that people don’t seem to get this concept!! And that it actually has limitations.

        • Angela says:

          Seriously. No wonder we’re having a lot of Constitutional debates lately-a lot of people clearly need to take a refresher course in what the amendments actually mean and say.

      • Mary says:

        I will never understand how people don’t get that free speech doesn’t mean consequence free speech. You can say what you want but that doesn’t mean there aren’t ramifications and consequences. That is why it is always still encouraged to think before you speak. But if you want to say something you better be ready to face the consequences.

    • Annie says:

      A) free speech only applies to government control. Fox News is a private company and is not controlled by the principle of free speech. They are allowed to fire/suspend anyone for what they say.
      .
      B) dirty words? In what world is using misogynistic slurs not considered rude?

    • John NYC says:

      And they did: it’s the obscenities that risk FOX’s license and that’s why the network acted. They still might get fined by the FCC but the total could be reduced since FOX acted to punish the violators of the obscenity broadcast regulations.

  13. arial2 says:

    So it’s okay for Fox’s “guest correspondents” to call for a war on all Muslims, but minor expletives will get you suspended? Oh, that’s right; it’s Fox. Why am I surprised by the hypocrisy?

  14. Ross says:

    She got the phrase wrong. She said, “He could care less.” But that’s wrong because it means he does care which is the opposite of what she was trying to say. Should have said, “He couldn’t care less.” Some people should go back to school before appearing on television.

  15. arial2 says:

    Stacy Dash…why do I know that name? Oh, yeah: “Clueless” ;)

  16. Robert Dassler says:

    Where were they when Dubya was running the country into the ground?

  17. Dan C. Watkins says:

    It’s a sad time when someones emotions get the better of them as they try to speak out about a subject that just happens to be a hot button topic. Everyone seems to want to talk around the subject or about someone negatively. The real problem is “ISLAM”. This cult has for over 1400 years tried to push it’s murderous agenda established by its pedophile prophet leader Mohammad. Read their “Quran”, they are on a world wide Jihad to destroy all other religions. To make the entire world Muslim. They (Muslims) are here in our country and a couple of news commentator get passionate about what is going on in the world You’d better start to listen to them and stop keeping them from being heard!

    • Annie says:

      You pretty much described Christianity to a tee there buddy. Should we judge every Christian the same way you’re demanding we judge all Muslims?

        • Angela says:

          Are you going to offer actual thoughtful debate or are you just going to go through this entire comment section calling people you disagree with “insane” and calling Obama “dumbo”? Hard to take somebody seriously when they resort to name-calling and think it’s some sort of clever argument.

          • rebecca says:

            that’s what Trump supporters and GOPs do. Offer nothing of substance, would rather name call.

          • Mary says:

            Unfortunately when people who have little intelligence that is how they express themselves by name calling. Many do not know how to have a civilize debate. Many do not believe in the art of compromising – that is part of the problem with the world today.

        • Wayne says:

          Lol are you just going around replying to everyone’s comments? Asking if they are insane if you disagree or saying amen if you agree? Time to step away from the computer. Go outside and get some fresh air.

  18. Annie says:

    Wow Peters was completely inappropriate and high five for using misogynistic language to insult someone. Really making the right-wing look good.
    .
    As for Dash, I don’t really see the big deal. She accidently swore ( rather minor curse word too). I don’t agree with her politics at all, but I don’t think she should be suspended for this. Plus, she corrected herself on air immediately. Stuff happens.

  19. David4 says:

    Faux News has some morals? No way! This is disturbing.

    They should be suspended for not knowing the phase is ‘couldN’T care less”, if he could care less than what is the point of that saying! Idiots!

  20. LT.Col Ralph peters and Stacie Dash both FOX News contributors and why are they? You would think they would have some respect for the President of the USA. All Aericans must respect the President no matter is he or she is from all the political parties in this country. The ISIS and Terrorist killed by the Presidents order wouldn’t think he is a pussy.

  21. there right Obama is a pussy

  22. Kay says:

    I’m not even American and I find this act repulsive. If criticising a leader and/or using what others’ deem bad language is an action that gets one suspended, I feel the need to point out that the United States is a democracy with free speech. A person should not be punished for giving their honest opinion regarding their leader’s actions or lack thereof.

    • jj says:

      They are not suspended for their opinions. They are suspended for their choice of words which are in violation with broadcasting standards.

      • Ronnie says:

        Exactly! This is not a free speech issue. It’s about violating FCC Broadcast Standards. Just because they are on cable doesn’t mean they can use any kind of offensive language. They’ll be back on the network in 2 weeks to give their opinions but you can bet they’ll know to express those opinions in a respectful manner.

  23. Dumbo and his racist wife done more to divide America than the hatred of Al Sharpton.

  24. Tim Devine says:

    I, as a human being am apalled by the lack of respect which is being shown for the Office of the President. Say what you will about the man, but do not disrespect the office. By refusing to use the President’s title and be mealy mouthed and rude to the man, you are disrespecting the office which President Obama represents.

  25. David4 says:

    It amazes me that so many crazy people who support Fox ‘News” lies are on TVline, a website run by a gay man.

    • schu says:

      Wow, you just showed the exact reason why conservative individuals are so horribly stereotyped by the media. And why people think that anyone that watches FoxNews is a raving racist homophobic idiot. I am a conservative, on fiscal and national security issues, but I check TVline every day and love all the columnists, gay, straight, whatever. I would not defend how either Peters or Dash made their statements, but I do agree that the president did not take advantage of making a primetime speech such as he did. He blatantly blamed congress for not doing enough and called out American’s for being discriminatory instead of just saying what he is going to do to protect the free world.

      • Eli says:

        I am a republican on almost every issue. There is one issue that I have the liberal point of view on and that is gay rights. Personally I support gay marriage. It is liberals, not conservatives that decided that all republicans are homophobic. Yes, it is true that a majority of republicans don’t support gay marriage, but that doesn’t necessarily make them homophobic. I am not going to debate the issues here since this is not the forum for it. The thing is I can not be a one issue voter. When it comes to a majority of the issues, I lean conservative, so I must vote conservative.

    • skyart101 says:

      Really, it is good to keep in mind that 50% of the really awful stuff the right says about the left is not true and 50% of the stuff the left says about the right is not true. We are all people who care about issues passionately, but we shouldn’t forget to be civil and show respect for each other like these two did.

    • Seriously? says:

      And it amazes me, that people like you, are voicing such stupid and antiquated remarks. There are crazies on both sides, but you know all the answers? Huh, hardly. Tell me, how does it feel to be such a complete jack@ss and make such comments? Yikes…….

  26. Dolly Kowaleski Moore says:

    It was refreshing to hear both of them.

  27. Yes, no one cares how they feel. Report the news and keep your opinions to yourself for when you are in your own time and space

    • Jay says:

      Contributors are only there to express opinions, not report news. The anchors (the ones who “just report the news”) facilitate discussions/debates among contributors who represent opposing views of the news topics of the day. And Fox News does the best job of any of the news networks when it comes to presenting both sides of an issue via such debates/discussions.

      Given the fact that Peters is a career military man, I’m sure that’s a word he tosses around a lot!

  28. My info says:

    I understand that language on the air must be monitored and Fox News is a totally professional media outlet but what President Obama is doing(or isn’t doing) about America’s security would give even a devout christian reason to spew obscenities. I say give them a chance to apologize to the public and bring them back. We all let things slip when we are fired up that we later may regret.

  29. emmanuel says:

    i think they said too much and so does trump all the time of whom not too many people ever really challenge him on .

  30. calvin says:

    Tired of fox, let your people speak

  31. Tahoe Mike says:

    Such language, lmao. I hate Faxe News as much as anybody, but I’m glad they have language standards. Anyone who says, “Could care less,” when they mean “Couldn’t care less” deserves to be suspended.

  32. gretchen thad says:

    Love all the patriotic right wingers who only believe in respecting presidents and other government officials who agree with them. I’m sure they don’t consider him”their” president.

  33. NO! They would’ve been fired if they say the same about President Bush, that’s for damn sure!

  34. To hell with them, Faux News, and all the rabid, right-wing nut job douches

  35. Lola says:

    I can’t take anyone that supported Mitt Romney serious. Stacey Dash is crazy. Her constant criticism of Obama is as dead as her career.

  36. Fox News: The only way to fight extremism is with A LOT MORE RABID RIGHT-WING EXTREMISM (and make tons of money for our “boys” (corporations) overseas) and no real solutions to anything other than winning the next election for republicans via their rabid, vulgar, uneducated, low-informed voters.

  37. Jim says:

    Is anyone really surprised by the lack of class? This is the party whose standard-bearer is Donald Trump.

  38. I think Peters and Dash both crossed the line. There is no respect for anyone or anything anymore, what is the world coming to? It is sad to see people who should know better make a fool of themselves.

  39. Shannon says:

    This was inappropriate and disgusting, but I’m more disturbed by the fact that FOX News is punishing these two than by what they actually said. They may not have manners, but at least they were being honest about how they feel. FOX just wants to avoid fines. There’s so much hypocrisy within the party itself as well as FOX, and I really hope Obama doesn’t let it get to him.

  40. Andrew says:

    The Truth Hurts Don’t it ?!?!

      You are not normal. You only think you are.

      *Rolls eyes* Ah, the good ol’ “political correctness” gripe. It has nothing to do with tht at all, it has to do with being a decent human being who treats the president of the country with some respect on national television. If somebody can’t disagree with his speech without resorting to name-calling, that doesn’t exactly say much for their maturity level, nor their ability to form logical, rational arguments.

      Also, last I checked I was pretty normal, but so glad we have you to decide such things for us.

    Personally, I am glad to see American’s passionate enough about our Country to “tell it like it is”. I want to know why our President has not been brought up on charges or have been put up for impeachment. I personally he has done more to harm our Country then anyone else ever has. Our whole Country was founded on God. Now God is a bad word. I am not a ” Bible Thumper ” by no means, and I sure am not without sin. But to deny our founding fathers and the whole creed and foundation of our Country is as unpatriotic as it comes. When the ” suspension ” is over for these two people, I hope they get twice their pay, they deserve it. Why is a very small minority of people in this country allowed to change laws for the moral majority even allowed? That is just wrong. I also still doubt the very qualifications and birth rights of our current President to even hold the position. I was born and bred in this Country and have all the documentation to prove it. Our President should be able to say the same thing, but for some reason there is no birth certificate to show that. But that is just my opinion, I’m dirt poor and just want to raise a few birds in peace. Our current economy makes that extremely hard. The word is our economy is improving due to lower un-employment benefits being paid. Well when benefit time expires and people that were able to draw un-employment benefits are no longer eligible then of course less people are drawing it. That is common sense, not a better economy. Hopefully we will have a new administration soon that can start to turn us back around. We have a Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence and many other documents that were required reading and study when I was in school. Things that gives us pride when we read it. What is there to be proud of in this administration? Now the leader of our own country is trying to obsolete the foundation of all those things. There can only be one explanation. To tear our Country apart. I can’t wait for the next election, Maybe someone will step up and take steps in a direction we need to go. The worst part is, He gets a salary for life if he is not prosecuted on charges and forced out of office. I would love to see that happen. I hate knowing I will be giving him hard earned money when I can hardly afford to feed myself or my birds. I am exercizing my freedom of speech here. I still have that, at least for a little while, I’ll bet he tries to change that too.

      No, it wasn’t, and no, it’s not.

      Aaaaaaaaand this is where I completely stop taking you seriously altogether. Enough. With. The. Birther. Thing.

      OMG…another one convincing themselves that this country was “founded” by Christian values….. as a Christian… I submit the following:

    let their words speak for themselves, to be suspended cause fox news wants to be the one who wears the white hat. is like the last speaker of the house acted (we are above such things look where he ended up mr. good guy who talked big then gave in and said it was a good fight but we couldn;t win) and that is all i have to say about that

  45. bill says:

    not worth my time to listen let them talk others do

  46. Joey says:

    I’m honestly a bit surprised that Fox didn’t just take the fines from the FCC and offer the two a primetime show. Their language is just as inflammatory as anything Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Eric Bolling, or Andrea Tantaros say.

  47. Don in AK says:

    This is a line that needs to be crossed! They told it like it is.

  48. The bank says:

    Freedom of speech! You hear worse than that on TV all the time fox news is being puddles cause they are of afraid of repercussions from the fcc. It’s about time as Americans that we stand up and fight for our right and the right of our country.

  49. peterwdawson says:

    Looks like between the newspapers going editorial front page and the talking heads flat out going blunter the rhetoric battle’s gotten even more intense. It’s like the media have finally just given up and turned into a comment section.
