FOX News Reprimand Jeanine Pirro for Islamophobic Comments
« on: March 17, 2019, 08:35:36 AM »

New York (CNN Business) — Jeanine Pirro was off the air at Fox News on Saturday, one week after she was widely denounced for doubting Congresswoman Ilhan Omar's patriotism.

Last Saturday night Pirro questioned whether Omar's Islamic religious beliefs stand in opposition to the US Constitution, prompting Fox to say "we strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro's comments."

The network said at the time that the views Pirro expressed "do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly" — but declined to say if she was being sanctioned in any way.

Several advertisers subsequently distanced themselves from Pirro's weekly show, called "Justice."

The show did not appear on this weekend's cable schedule guide. In its place was an unusual repeat of a documentary series.

Reporting is that FoxNews has suspended her, but they will neither confirm or deny.
