Accurate But….

Stacy Dash

Two Commentators for Fox News were suspended for two weeks for using profanity in discussing President Plausible’s recent speech.  Stacy Dash (above) commented that “(He) doesn’t give a shit”.  and Col. Ralph Peters said, on another program, “Obama is such a total pussy.” Fox Management made the following statement:

“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,” Fox senior executive vice president Bill Shine said in a statement to CNN. “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.”

The way I read it Fox took issue with the profanity but did not challenge the accuracy of either statement. In a twitter response Ms. Dash stood by her statement and accepted her punishment.
