There Goes The Judge. There Goes The Judge.

Two-bit wingnut conspiracy pimp, "Judge" Andrew Napolitano, has been sent to the penalty-box for embarrassing Fox News shareholders.  Because of all the wingnut conspiracies in all the world. President Stupid decided drop the entire the blame-shithouse for his latest round of unhinged paranoid nonsense on Napolitano's tiny, stooped shoulders.

From the L.A. Times:
Fox News pulls Judge Napolitano over his Trump wiretap claims

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano is being kept off the air indefinitely amid the controversy over his unverified claims that British intelligence wiretapped Trump Tower at the behest of former President Obama.

Fox News did not respond to inquiries about Napolitano’s status Monday. Napolitano was conspicuously missing from the network’s coverage of the confirmation hearings on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch — an event in which he typically would have played a significant role. He has not been on the air since Thursday.

People familiar with the situation who could speak only on the condition of anonymity said Napolitano is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future. Napolitano was not available for comment...
By and large, the rule for Conservatives who live on the wingnut-welfare teat is, when they publicly step on their own dicks spectacularly enough to displease the money guys, the Gingrich Rules kick in:  30 days on the bench, after which they are reintroduced back to the media ecosystem via some "legit" format during which no mention whatsoever will be made of what got them on bad paper with the network in the first place.

And if  it turns out that Napolitano doesn't swing enough weight to rate the Gingrich treatment?  Or if the mud he splashed was too injurious to the corporation to warrant early parole from the dog house? Well that's why "senior legal contributor" positions at Breitbart, National Review or Russia Today are invented.

Now I really do not understand the FOX.

Why is it Murdoch does lather Napolitano with the same ceremony as General MacArthur returning. As they bestowed on ORielly?

Was it because Napolitano is one of those, "so called Judges"?

As ratings go, they had Trump watching. Besides, Trump did say Napolitano was a brilliant legal mind, tot he foreign press. I do not feel sad for him, there are plenty of job openings in the GOP propaganda media corp. And the way things are going he might end up on Breitbart or MSNBC.

A fund-raising idea for you: Have a pool for when Napolitano next appears on Fox. Rather than a cash payout, the winner can get recognition on the podcast.

@SamB just what I was thinking; it won't be long if history is a guide...

For some reason the Infowars guys seem to really like Napolitano, or at least the ones I am afflicted with do.
