Truth Revolt -- Two regular Fox News contributors were suspended today for using profanity during their on-air commentary about President Obama, Talking Points Memo reports.
As TruthRevolt reported earlier today, Fox News analyst and retired Army officer Ralph Peters, a man not known for reserved opinions, referred to the President as "such a total pussy, it's stunning" on Fox Business this morning. Host Stuart Varney eventually had to insist that the fiery Peters apologize.
Not long afterward, Stacey Dash, a contributor on the Fox talk show Outnumbered, was also driven to saucy language by Obama's Sunday night address to the nation on terrorism. She said it seemed that the President "could give a shit" during his Oval Office speech.
Both contributors received a two-week suspension for the remarks. Bill Shine, Fox senior executive vice president of programming, released a statement which 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.
Blog Author's Comments -- Lt. Col. Ralph Peters is one of the better commentators on Fox. He hits Obama hard for what he says and does while others hold back. There is something wrong with anyone who doesn't get worked up listening to Obama the fraud day in and day out.
I can see how Mr. Peters and Ms. Dash could slip some slight profanity in while speaking about the current president. The man does not deserve any respect for what he has done during his time in office. "Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and Stacey Dash made comments on different programs that were completely inappropriate and unacceptable for our air." No, given the speech, I think those comments were completely appropriate and acceptable.
