Rob Schmitt of Newsmax said on air, “Sources close to the network tell us us that’s because she made a very staunch defense of President Trump and wanted to expose or attempt to expose the voter fraud that the Trump campaign and Republicans allege took place.”
However, a Fox News spokesperson clarified that her episode simply would not be airing due to ongoing election coverage, and no cancelations or suspensions had occurred.
While Fox News continues to lose viewers over their continued push to the left, the initial outrage over Judge Jeanine’s show seems to be a knee jerk reaction by several outlets, and die hard fans, to unsubstantiated stories.
