Fox News has suspended two on-air contributors in the wake of crude language they used on different programs on Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network on Monday to discuss Obama’s Sunday evening remarks on terrorism.
- “Earlier yesterday, Fox contributors Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and Stacey Dash made comments on different programs that were completely inappropriate and unacceptable for our air,”said Bill Shine, senior executive vice president of programming for both networks, in a prepared statement. “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.”
Ralph Peters, a Fox News analyst and retired Army officer, made his comments on a Fox Business Network program hosted by Stuart Varney on Fox Business, saying
- “the President is such a total pussy, it’s stunning” to describe the President’s remarks on terrorism delivered on Sunday evening, eventually prompting host Stuart Varney to demand Peters apologize.
Stacy Dash while speaking on Fox News’ “Outnumbered,” said that the President didn’t “give a s—” about terrorism.
The two networks are both owned by 21st Century Fox.
