There are many claims in articles across the internet that this opening rhetoric was the cause of Judge Napolitano’s “Freedom Watch”show, which appeared on the FOX Business network, from being canceled. I have seen articles and posts that go so far as to say Napolitano was actually fired.
According to a quote issued by the Judge, the show was cancelled for standard causes, and plea’s with ardent watchers of the show to stop sending emails to FOX; that they are an interference.
In television, shows are cancelled all the time. Two of my former shows have been cancelled, and after each cancellation, Fox has rewarded me with more and better work. This cancellation–along with others that accompanied it–was the result of a business judgment here, and is completely unrelated to the FreedomWatch message. It would make a world of a difference for all of us, if you would KINDLY STOP SENDING EMAILS TO FOX. I am well. Your values are strong. I will continue to articulate those values here at Fox. But the emails many of you are sending are unfairly interfering with my work and that of my colleagues here. The emails even violate our values because they interfere with the use of private property. I have accepted the cancellation decision with good cheer and a sense of gearing up for the future. You should as well.
As a favor to me, and as I have asked this past weekend, PLEASE STOP SENDING EMAILS TO MY COLLEAGUES AT FOX ABOUT THE CANCELLATION OF FreedomWatch; and please stop NOW. (source)
