I am so disappointed to be writing this to you, readers. Freedom Watch on Fox Business has been cancelled. For those of you who don’t know about it, Freedom Watch was a show hosted by Judge Andrew Napolitano. Judge, as he is commonly known, showcased Austrian economics, libertarian philosophy, and real news issues. Judge was probably the only libertarian on the news, and now he’s been cancelled. If you’ll allow me a moment of perfect candor, the first thought that I had when I was saw this headline was, This is bull$h1t! I’m angry.
Judge was shining a bright light on the Fed, the NDAA, and the tomfoolery that goes on daily on the Hill. Judge was the only host bringing us real straight talk about the economy and the state of the world today. I watched his show often in clip version, as we don’t get it in Korea, and found every segment to be enjoyable and informative. I will admit, of course, that he was preaching to the choir.
Why can’t libertarians have a newsman of their own? I don’t believe that there weren’t enough viewers, because there are plenty of libertarians, and more are coming to the fold every day. Judge was a great voice for liberty, and that voice has been silenced.
I, for one, don’t intend to take this lying down. I love Judge’s show, and he is probably the only person on Fox – or TV, generally – for whom I have any respect. If you are libertarian but you haven’t watched his show before, I suggest you head to Fox and watch some clips before they get removed. I’m sure there will be plenty of devotees who have him on YouTube, as well. I will continue to reuse and distribute his clips, as I think they are interesting and informative. I’m also going to send an angry letter to Fox and tell them exactly what I think about this. If you love Judge and refuse to let him go quietly into the night, I suggest you do the same!

**Addendum: Fox has apparently been inundated with emails about Freedom Watch. Judge has posted on his Facebook page that, while he appreciates the show of support, the people at Fox are getting pretty irked about the constant emails, and he is requesting that people stop immediately. We must respect Judge’s wishes on this matter. Please DO NOT email Fox News about Freedom Watch. I have taken down the links to the Fox exec’s emails.
Judge has also stated that the decision was based purely on business and not on the content of the show. He says that he accepted the decision cheerfully and feels that there will be another opportunity or project for him some time in the near future. I can only hope this is true. In any case, please don’t email Fox anymore, guys!
