Two regular Fox News contributors were suspended yesterday for their on-air comments about President Obama. On Fox Business Monday morning, Ralph Peters, a Fox News analyst and retired Army officer (and jackass), called the President
“such a total pussy, it’s stunning.”
This eventually prompted host Stuart Varney to demand Peters apologize. And not long afterward, Stacey Dash, a contributor on the Fox talk show Outnumbered, was also so pissed off by Obama’s primetime address on terrorism, that she said it seemed that the President
“could give a shit.”
Dash is an actress as well, best known for starring in the cult film Clueless 20 years ago. Both contributors have been suspended for two weeks for the remarks and in a statement, Bill Shine, Fox senior executive vice president of programming, said:
Earlier today, 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.
Fox News is sort of an oxymoron when it comes to our President, so this slight slap on the wrist doesn’t really made up for hundreds of hours of bad reporting, so in the end, who cares? (via Talking Points Memo)
