Fox Removes E.D. Hill and Her Show
THEODORE'S WORLD ^ | 16 June 2008 | Chrissie

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:

http://mediamatters.org/items/200806060007?f=h_top

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.

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.

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!

If Huffington complains about some other woman who appears on FOX it's time to give that woman a payraise and additional face time.

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.

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.

People, this is just the beginning. Just wait if or when this man becomes President.

Already we see signs of people being punished for even having the gall to say anything negative about the magic mullatto messiah.

God help us all if this marxist bastard becomes POTUSA.

That’s right, Murdoch was backing Hillary until she lost. Then I heard he thinks Obama will win the presidency.

I don’t think it’s an ideological thing. Murdoch and those types just support whoever they think will win for whatever advantage they can get from it. Now it looks like Obama, so he’s being careful about what Fox people say about him.

I did not here the Laura Ingram anouncement until about last Tues - Wed. when it was anounced on air by the co-hosts of the 5 PM show who were interviewing Ingram.

A few weeks ago? Got a source?

Fox and O'Reilly agreed that she was out of line

So, how does O'Reilly have any say as to who stays and who goes on FOX? Just asking?

As for O'Reilly, my hubby and I used to always watch him. I've been watching him since he first debuted. However, he seems to be regressing into an EXTRA type program, which is where he came from.

My husband listens to a short snippet of Glen Beck's morning talk show while driving to the bus park&ride and has told me he learns more in that 5-10 mins than he does with a whole hour of O'Reilly.

So, I DVR Beck, and we watch that instead of O'Reilly. Plus, I can zip through the commercials.

Add to a general dissatisfaction with BOR, I believe that he is one of the media who worships at the Shrine of the Obama and is totally in the tank for both him and his wife. And it is early in the process.

It's Gretchen Carlson. She's not as bad as the weekend blonde airheads...you should hear some of their comments. The show is unwatchable.

Patti Ann Brown filled in this week with the guys and she was very sweet.
