Two Fox News contributors were suspended for two weeks for having potty mouths on its networks. Obama’s to blame.
Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and actress-commentator Stacey Dash contributors got ultra undie-bunched today while discussing President Barack Obama’s Oval Office address of last night.
“Look, Mr. President, we’re not afraid — we’re angry, we’re pissed off, we’re furious!” Peters said on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co. “We want you to react, we want you to do something. You’re afraid. I mean, this guy is such a total [kitty cat], it’s stunning.”
Host Stuart Varney scolded Peters for his language after he had run out of gas. Peters apologized.
Meanwhile, on Fox News Channel’s Outnumbered, contributor Dash said Obama doesn’t “give a [defecation]” about terrorism.
Bill Shine, Senior EVP Programming for Fox News and Fox Business, said this afternoon in a statement: “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.”
