Watch the show today(1/11/2012) if you can catch it on the rerun at 11pm est on Fox Biz ch 359 on directv. I believe the Judge has been given the go ahead to do what he wants with his show now. Just watch todays show and you'll see what I mean, previously he has been more reserved on supporting Paul outright on his show. It has been a slow transformation but now the Judge is really being VERY open about being a Paul supporter, he has all but endorsed Paul.
Mark my words I can't see it now Bill O'Reilly will dub Freedom Watch the Ron Paul Show in the next few months. Not that it's a bad thing because it's partially true! I think Fox has realised that the Judge is getting VERY good ratings despite being in a congested prime time slot on a mostly unwatched, unknown channel Fox Business. 23% in NH is not a small market share its likely 40% of Reps and 25% of Dems will watch his show along with getting THE MOST COVETED 18-30 demographic. #WINNING
Set your DVR guys if you haven't already!

Was Judge Andrew Napolitano cutting to close to the bone for the establishment?
February 10, 2012
The Fox Business Channel has cancelled one of the only shows on the entire Fox News network that was in any way informative or watchable - Freedom Watchwith Judge Andrew Napolitano.
In a press release distributed late Thursday, the channel announced that its entire prime-time programming lineup had been changed, with re-runs of already existing programs replacing Freedom Watch.
Napolitano’s show had been airing for a year, in which time he had consistently covered major issues that other news programs would only gloss over, if they devoted any coverage to them at all.
Napolitano’s coverage of the freedom stripping National Defense Authorization Act for one was second to none as far as mainstream news output was concerned. His legal and constitutional expertise on such matters is also unrivalled.
His focus on Austrian economics and Libertarian social policy provided a much welcome alternative to the endless left/right bickering constantly played out on programming from the likes of MSNBC, CNN, and FOX News itself.
Napolitano regularly defended the free market and lambasted the actions of the Federal Reserve, holding it accountable daily for the economic crisis that the US finds itself mired in. Congressman Ron Paul was a regular guest on the show, with a host of other informative analysts who were not merely about peddling the establishment party line or representing special interests.
It is for these very reasons that many fans of the show suspect Napolitano has been axed by the corporate machine.
Regarding Napolitano’s future, Fox Business stated that the judge will be “continuing to make significant contributions to both FOX Business and FOX News” and would “be showcased throughout future programming on both networks”
“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.” the statement read.
Linking to the press release on his Facebook page, Napolitano wrote “sad news friends, but don’t worry I’ll still be here defending liberty.”
Libertarian activist Lew Rockwell is spearheading a campaign to have Freedom Watch reinstated, writing on his website yesterday:
“If you are as outraged as I am at the cancellation of Judge Andrew Napolitano’s “Freedom Watch,” here is something you can do.”
Please contact Fox Business to ask them to reverse their decision.
Senior Vice President Media Relations
“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.” Rockwell added.
I am a big fan of the judge .. anyone who watches Freedom Watch affectionately just calls him "the judge" I love his show but it is the last 5 minutes of his show every night i look forward to he always hits the nail on the head "defending freedom every night of the week.." Bill O'Riely plainly says in this video he doesn't care about the constitution.. My goodness he is such a bloviating pinhead hahaha I love the Judge!!
"bloviating pinhead." I like that!
Make sure you complain about the cancellation to the following people:
Brian Lewis, Executive Vice President, Corporate Communications
Irena Briganti, Senior Vice President, Media Relations
Did FOX really cancel the judge? I guess i don't need to watch TV at all anymore...
Fox is letting Freedom watch go along with millions of viewers with him.. they can all burn in hell as far as i am concerned .. As the Judge would say the answers as to why are obvious... How can we make Fox miserable??/ with all the tweeters and facebook and sites like this and e~mails can the tweeters and e~mails overload them somehow ./ It would be great to be a thorn in there MSM loyalist a$$*$.. h*les
this is from the judges face book
Many of you are not happy with the cancellation of FreedomWatch, and you have sent emails to my Fox colleagues expressing that unhappiness. 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.
All the best, apn."
