Skip to comments.Fox Removes E.D. Hill and Her Show
Posted on 06/16/2008 4:15:56 PM PDT by radar101
E.D. Hill and her show, "America's Pulse" has been removed from her time slot at Fox, because of something she said in her news presentation . On June 6th last, on her former program, "America's Pulse," E.D. Hill teased in a segment about body-language about Obama's fist bump with his wife Michelle.
Obama supporters and the leftist blogs on the web were in a rage and an uproar about the comments, and George Soros' "Media Matters" began a campaign encouraging people to contact Fox and complaint about what is in their view an unforgivable slight of Obama and Michelle.
They called for E.D. Hill's resignation.
Media Matters blog:
Fox and O'Reilly agreed that she was out of line,.typical of moderate O'Reilly who has stated many times he is not a Republilcan or a Democrat
She apologized for her comments, which apparently that didn't even help the situation . She was taken off her show at Fox. Fox caved in to the opposition, (Obama and Mediai Matters, MSNBC, and CNN's ) demands and Fox quietly cancelled E.D.'s show, "America's Pulse," chastised her, and relegated her elsewhere for the time being.
Huffington is thrileld and posted about all of this with glee.
E.D. HIll was great and full of life and even though I seldom got to see her show, I used to watch her on the morning show she did before she got her show "America's Pulse".
If you have seen her show and wondered where she is and would like to send an email about all of this the information is listed below.

How many times has a liberal been removed for saying “hateful” things about Republicans?
so far it looks like much ado about nothing to me.
Nonsense. This was an announced programming change. ED will be back.
Good grief.... all of the emails I send complaining about Geraldo “The Fake” are ignored. I swear he has some pictures of someone, high up the chain, to still have a job.
obama is such a wuss!
Reason I don’t watch Fox anymore. I’ll surf by the station but I don’t stick around like I used to. They are becoming to PC and semi-rat-lib for my blood pressure. SO LONG FOX IT WAS NICE WHILE IT LASTED!
When they did they annoucne this program change?
If Fox caved to this pressure I am done with them!
You and me both. I occasionally tuned in to E.D. as I liked her on fox and friends.....which I watch very little of since she left.
Just wait ‘til the mistresses start weighing in.
She will probably wind up at CNN now..
O'Reilly should be ashamed of himself (even though he's constitutionally incapable of that emotion).
I took the fist bump thing to be quasi-gangbanger language inappropriately picked up by 40 somethings who know better. You see some young folks doing that down the way, change directions and get out of there. You're just dead meat because, after all, they're telling you they are smarter than you and it's their good fortune to discover that it's going to be "pay day" at your expense!
The schedule change announcement was made a few weeks ago in conjunction with Laura Ingram’s show at 5 PM. ED will be back in another capacity. It’s about ratings.
Had nothing to do with the terrorist bump comment.
Horrible (if true). Is there a YouTube or transcript of what she said? I won’t go to that damn Media Matters site.
She shouldn’t have been taken off Fox & Friends...she was great on there.
I love E.D....she tells it like it is.
FOX is totally WORTHLESS. They were an exstension of the idiotic Operation KAOS and did nothing but cut down only Obama and shill for the Clintons for about a three-hour bloc every damned night-O’Reilly, Vannity and Colmes, and most nights Greta Van Cistern. Rupert Murdoch even held a fundraiser for her (Hillary). I swear I saw tears in Hannity’s eyes when she stopped her campaign. E.D. is one of their best assets, and they constantly screw her over. I wish she’d go to another news outlet.
