As it appears, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro’s Saturday evening show, “Justice w/ Judge Jeanine,” will be preempted again this week by an encore showing of the FNC-produced documentary “Scandalous: The Trial of William Kennedy Smith.”
This hasn’t been formally confirmed yet, the “TV Schedule” maintained on Fox News’ website has the documentary listed in Pirro’s usual 9 pm slot.
Here is Fox News’ TV schedule posted on their official website. Take a look.
Jeanine Pirro’s abrupt disappearance is even more troubling if we add the fact that Fox hasn’t formally suspended her. Her show is simply removed her from the lineup, for the second time in two weeks.
Last Saturday when Pirro’s program was preempted by the “Scandal” documentary at the last minute, her two million viewers were left asking “where’s Judge Jeanine?”
Her fans also became worried whether she may have been fired. Recall what happened to former host Bill O’Reilly just after The New York Times ran a piece on him in 2017 revealing that he had settled a number of sexual harassment lawsuits in court.
Fox pulled Bill O’Reilly off the air and announced his termination several days later. Could the same thing be happening to Jeanine Pirro?
Just to be clear, there has been no confirmation that host Pirro has been suspended or fired from the network.
After the first preemption, TVLine reached for comments on the case, and a Fox spokesperson said, “We’re not commenting on internal scheduling matters.”
Two weeks have passed since the former New York prosecutor made the allegedly controversial remarks on her program and the Pirro hasn’t been spotted anywhere, be it on Fox News, on Twitter, on Facebook or on Instagram. She’s gone completely radio silent.
Many of her viewers, including President Donald Trump, have shown their concern about Judge Jeanine on social media.
Because of recent decisions made by Fox and it’s parent company, Fox Corporation, including hiring of former Democrat National Committee chair Donna Brazile, Fox Corporaton’s recruitment of former House Speaker Paul Ryan and now Pirro’s apparent suspension (or termination?), her fans have begun calling for a boycott.
