Fox News replaced Jeanine Pirro's prime time TV show with a repeat of the documentary "Scandalous: The Trial of William Kennedy Smith" Saturday night.
The details: The Fox News host's show, “Justice With Judge Jeanine,” was taken off air without explanation one week after the network said it "strongly" condemned comments she made on the program on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). In her opening monologue, Pirro suggested wearing a hijab meant she followed Sharia law. Axios asked Fox News why the program was missing from its regular time slot. A spokesperson would only say: "We’re not commenting on internal scheduling matters.”
