Fox News media reporter Howard Kurtz on Sunday suggested that his colleague, host Jeanine Pirro, is facing a “suspension” because she insulted a Muslim member of Congress.
In a statement, Fox News declined to say if it the schedule change was meant as a punishment.
The statement insisted that Pirro’s views on Omar “do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”
On Sunday, Kurtz said it looked like Pirro had been suspended from his network.
“Jeanine Pirro’s show didn’t air last night,” Kurtz reported, “a week after Fox News chastised her for comments about a Democratic congresswoman.”
“A Fox spokesperson says, ‘We are not commenting on public scheduling matters,'” he continued. “And yet, without some explanation of why the show was pulled, it certainly looks like a suspension. Pirro’s remarks, which were unfortunate, sparked a furor.”

US Justice Dept. tells court migrant children in federal concentration camps don’t need soap or toothbrushes
The Trump administration's Justice Dept. lawyers say migrant children detained in federal concentration camps do not need soap or toothbrushes despite a settlement agreement that requires the U.S. Government to keep them in "safe and sanitary" facilities. The DOJ also argues that the children, detained in the Southern border camps, can continue to sleep on cold concrete floors in overcrowded cells without being in violation of the agreement.
The DOJ made the argument Tuesday before a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit, Courthouse News reports, noting the judges appeared "incredulous" with the government's claims.
CNN panelist stumps host with Trump logic: ‘You can statistically say anything but I don’t see it’
A Trump supporter on Thursday brushed off statistics showing that hate crimes have been rising since President Donald Trump's election by claiming that he has not personally seen any additional hate crimes.
During a CNN voter panel, host Alisyn Camerota quoted from official statistics showing a significant increase in hate crimes committed since Trump's upset victory in 2016.
Trump supporter Darrell Wimbley, however, wasn't buying it and he cited his own personal experiences to prove his point.
"You can say that, but I truly don't believe it because I don't see it," he said. "I can statistically say anything but I don't see it."
