Be respectful but be sure to convey your outrage at this matter, and state that you and many others will boycott the network if the show is taken off the air.

Very bad news.

Fox Business Channel has unceremoniously cancelled Freedom Watch with Judge Andrew Napolitano.

Ratings were not an issue, since the show was one of the top-rated shows on Fox Business Channel. Since no reason was given, one can only assume it was the consistent antiwar, pro-freedom, and anti-establishment views.

Fox’s press release stated:

Currently one of the leading judicial analysts on television, Judge Napolitano will continue his role on both FOX Business and FOX News, providing key legal insights surrounding the growing intersection between Washington and Wall Street.

Freedom Watch will be replaced by re-airings of shows run earlier in the day.

    and a FreeDom's salute to Michael Scheuer. we'll never see or hear from him again.

  • Harold

    Well I won't have any reason to watch FBN any longer

  • G.C.

    I'm very upset about this news there is only Stossel left…and if they don't like what he has to say they will get rid of him also.No free speech on FBN they are not any better than CNN and all the others. I guess I have a choice don't watch them anymore.

  • M. Smith

    Shame on FBN. The Judge and Stossel are the only reasons I watched at night. As a Libertarian, I
    loved the Judge's end of the program talks and am now more afraid that Fox is turning away from liberty and succumbing to the bullying of the Republican establishment. The Judge often commented on THE ESTABLISHMENT and now we know who runs Fox NEws. What are you afraid of? Thank heaven for Reason magazine. Watch out John you may be next!!!

    We all know you can't have a dissenting opinion of the Government and be allowed to express it on any cable or network station. I agree with B.P. and others on here, terrible mistake on Fox's part. I read an article a few months back that Fox was moving to the left. I didn't believe it at 1st, but now, they are showing their true colors. I could be wrong on this since I have no proof, but I saw John Roberts hiring as a downgrade for Fox. The Judge was fair and balanced. The network not so much anymore. I get sick of the Romney cheer leading going on at Fox anyway. As far as I am concerned, they are all in the tank for the one party, two wings of the Government that are against what We the People want. The Judge was a voice crying in the wilderness, and I really believe he cares for the freedom of us all. A very sad day for freedom loving Americans.

    The more I began to watch THE JUDGE I became aware of our CONSTITUTIONAL rights as AMERICANS. I also learned who and what the opposition is really failing to do. Also that both sides of the aisle are responsible for the failures affecting US. Pretty easy in todays world to know who and what makes sense. Thanks in part to the JUDGE. Fox is circumventing the progress of knowledge. Fox is showing it`s no different than a liberal controlled state media.

  • propaganda

    Who knows maybe they have somthing else planned for the judge…… but im just being optimistic

  • bonniewheeler

    Ratings determine whether or not an indiviudal stays with a program – Ratings for this show plummeted. I have a feeling that it's the show and not the judge that is being terminated

    • KLAUS11

      THAT'S WERE YOU ARE WRONG, BONNIE. RATINGS WERE GREAT. CHECK IT OUT BUT CONSIDER THE SOURCE.

  • freedom_lover

    I stopped watching Fox News a LONG time ago because despite their claims they were just as biased as the rest of the media. When Judge Napolitano's Freedom Watch began I started watching Fox Business and that was the only reason I watched FB. Fox, you put the final nail in your coffin as far as I am concerned. I will be sending letters to your advertisers and letting them know I will not be purchasing their products. I will also spread the word to all my friends and family to refrain from using any product advertised on any fox station.

  • Matt Vega

    Big Brother wins! America, we are in deep trouble. Vote Ron Paul before all the lights go out.

  • rich B.

    This is an outrage . Your station was the only one claiming to be fair and balanced, I now have my doubts. RE think this move .

  • Don

    Let's be honest about what this is: a political hit job. The judge was one of the main reasons Ron Paul has been able to double his vote totals from 4 years ago, and the GOP cannot afford to have RP continue to interfere with the "rig." No other program gave Paul the honest exposure he deserved, and that had to come to an end. Just look at the treatment Paul gets from the other Fox shows. Most of the time he is not mentioned at all or, if he is mentioned, it's in a derogatory manner. Also, they have yet to assign correct delegate totals for Paul – why do they want to diminish and marginalize him so badly?

    It's because the establishment – the Demopublican Party – is scared to death of Ron Paul and those like him because they know that the spark of another American revolution could very well result from their leadership, and they are terrified at the prospect of power being restored to the people.

    I have been getting progressively disgusted with this policy, and have given up watching most of the shows including Hannity and the Factor.

    Now that it has become abundantly clear that Fox is taking marching orders from the GOP establishment, there is no reason to watch anything on Fox anymore.

    Suddenly, they don't look any more honest than the competitors they rail against.

    Fair and balanced my ass.

  • Jocelyn Gallant

    I agree with you they should not having to take Freedom Watch off the air on FBN Network. I joyed watching freedom watch every night from 8-9pm week nights. I too will watch Stossel that is the only we have right now. I pray that Feedom Watch will make back on Fox Business.

    Is Fox caving to the other biased media and progressives
    gressives who do not want the Truth to be known and heard! It is ashame that the big wigs will not reconsider and let the people of America have what is needed at this crucial time in our history!

  • DORIS HENDRICKS

    I DON'T KNOW WHY THE JUDGE WOULD EVEN CONSIDER STAYING ON AS THE LEGAL ANALYST WHEN HE HAS BEEN HUMILIATED BEFORE THE WHOLE NATION. HAS IT COME TO NOT HAVING THE FREEDOM TO CALL A SPADE A SPADE?. AFTER ALL, THAT WAS WHAT HIS SHOW WAS ALL ABOUT WAS WATCHING OUT FOR FREEDOM AND EVEN HIS WAS TAKEN AWAY. HE AND GLEN BECK ARE OUR FOUNDING FATHERS RE-INCARNATED AND THEY HAVE BEEN SO PERSECUTED.

  • Andrepaulbegin

    Freedom Watch and John Stossel are/were the two best shows on Fox or any other network for that matter. I guess the truth just doesn't win, Ron Paul the only politician who tells the truth whether you like it or not is unelectable or so the media tries to make you believe.

  • wibeancounter

    Yes he'll continue on with FOX but he won't get away with speaking the truth. The hand behind the curtain strikes again.

  • Ann

    I can't understand why the Judge's show was cancelled. I watched it faithfuly every night but won't watch FOX again. At least you could have stated your reasons for a terrible decision. I know he'll find another show on a station that will appreciate him….Goodbye FOX.

  • Disappointed

    Does NOT make any sense about FBN's programming arrangment. Taking out Freedom Watch was a bad choice. Now its down to just "Lou Dobbs Tonight."

  • Texasherb

    The Judge was one of the only true impartial spokespersons left on Fox except for Stossel. The cancellation of Freedom Watch has convinced me that Fox is only "conservative" when it comes to supporting big Goverment conservatives. They have become the mirror image of MSNBC or CNN.I sincerely hope that some other channel has the courage to allow Judge Napolitano to express his views and that of many others.

  • carla

    Good riddence Napolitano!!!!

  • far2right

    The Judge will find a way to get back on TV or radio.

    I just hope he does not go over to Glenn Beck's channel.

    I can't stand the thought of lining Beck's pockets just to be able to watch the Judge again.

  • DSS

    Judge Napolitano has been trying his best to wake America up. He has been telling us how bad things are in Washington and little by little we the people are loosing our country. Our government is totally out of control and if we don't regain control of it we will not have a free country any longer. We better get it right in November or it could very well be GAME OVER.
