(ANTIMEDIA) Fox News has suspended a pair of network personalities for using vulgar language on-air while criticizing Barack Obama over his current foreign policy strategy.
Ralph Peters, a retired United States Army lieutenant colonel and Fox News analyst, called the president a “total p*ssy” while appearing on the Fox Business Network on Monday. He was discussing Obama’s December 6th Oval Office address to the nation.
Additionally, frequent Fox News contributor and actress Stacy Dash — whom most people would remember from the 1995 film Clueless — appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Outnumbered,” where she said she feels like Obama doesn’t “give a sh*t” about terrorism. Like Peters, she was discussing the president’s speech from the previous evening.
Both Peters and Dash Tweeted acknowledgments of their suspensions. “Don’t worry, I’ll be back,” Peters tweeted.
“Consequences. Some of us have to pay them. Gladly,” Dash tweeted.
“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,” said Fox executive Bill Shine. “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.”
