Fox News Fires Contributor over Comments on Kavanaugh Hearing

Published

on

Fox News severed its ties to contributor Kevin Jackson on Thursday after Jackson tweeted a string of vulgar attacks on women making sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

During Thursday’s hearing in which both Kavanaugh and accuser Christine Blasey Ford spoke to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Jackson called the women who have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct “lying skanks.”

Fox responded by ending its relationship with him.

“Kevin Jackson has been terminated as a contributor,” Fox said in a statement, according to Time. “His comments on today’s hearings were reprehensible and do not reflect the values of Fox News.”

Kavanaugh has denied three separate accusations of sexual assault from the 1980s when he was in high school and college.

Jackson attacked the accusers in several tweets.

“Feminists are their own worst enemies, and the enemy of women,” Jackson tweeted. “Also, they want men to NEVER be believed. I’m not succumbing. To HELL with the notion women must be believed no matter what. Lying skanks is what these three women are, and we ALL know more.”

In another tweet, he said, “Leftist women are skanky for the most part. More will be sued and made to pay for their lies.”

One tweet that he later deleted took a very personal shot at Ford.

“#ChristineBlaseyFord academic problems came from her PROMISCUITY! Dang girl, stop opening your legs and OPEN A BOOK!”  he posted, according to Variety.

Other tweets offered his take on the hearing.

Jackson offered no apology, and even after being fired he was taunting those whose feathers he ruffled.

“Just so we are clear #Leftists, I stand on my principles even if it costs me a gig You remain lying scum, willing to CRUSH good people for your devilish ideology,” he tweeted Friday.

Jackson, who hosts a syndicated radio show, he had been a Fox contributor since 2014. He is the author of the book “Race Pimping: The Multi-Trillion Dollar Business of Liberalism.”

    Looks like Fox is caving to the liberals. Kevin was just telling it like it is.

    • Joanne says:

      I agree with him. I would have worded it a bit differently. However he is right this Feminist Movement is in fact it’s own worst enemy. It has become an embarrassment to Educated Women in this Country. You know, the ones who actually Work hard to get where we are. The women who have honestly been sexually abused lose every time a false allegation is made. Look at the way the Democrats have destroyed a Good Mans Reputation. Without evidence. This while a Man in Northern California just got put under House Arrest for the Rape of a 5 year old.

    • Richard Roberts says:

      He is telling the truth!

    • Trump Woma says:

      I will miss him. As you said he is always says how he feels and I for one appreciate that. Making bones about it. Kind of like the President.
      Those of us who have brain know exactly what all of this was and is about. Delay, delay, delay. Hoping that time will run out for us to get another conservative very good Supreme Court Justice.

    • Karen Stephenson says:

      Exactly!!! I’m actually proud of him for standing up for the truth. #kavanaughisinnocentuntilprovenguilty

    • Baylee says:

      Kevin is right. Disappointed in FOX NEWS.

    • Dede DeForest says:

      I agree with you. I like Kevin and will miss him. Hope he is picked up by another Conservative channel. OOPS, Fox is no longer a Conservative channel. They have succumbed to the liberals. What a shame.

  • Carla says:

    Kevin Jackson was the only one brave enough to say the truth. Everyone else tip toed around the issue. I didn’t believe one word that came out of dr. Fords mouth!

  • Maurice says:

    I thought he was being a little complimentary myself.

    • FRANK DEFEO says:

      I agree I guess its true the truth hurts….36 years ago something happened and FORD walks away with $700,000 dollars not bad for ruining a good mans career….

  • Sandy Miller says:

    Why did you fire him Fox? Are you starting to be like the liberal media by covering up the truth? I as a female can tell you flat out that feminist are horrid creatures who do not stick up for all women. You have to think like them or they have no use for you, even as a woman.

    • Call or email Fox and tell them what you think of their firing of this reporter.

    • Donald R. Hohman says:

      The gentleman is correct as are you. It’s coming to a point that any man hiring someone for their company will not hire a female because of the liability. Men and women are coming to a point not only do they don’t to be alone with a female they don’t even communicate without fear of sexual complaint of some sort. Sad state of affairs caused by a few unhinged women activists feminists.

    • Abby says:

      in reality, it’s the Murdoch wives who control Fox now. The sons are too scared to stand up to their wives. BUT, I do not believe KJ should have called the women skanks. That’s a very undesirable term for any woman, nor do I think anyone should be called scum (like most of the liberals seem to do).

  • E says:

    Rehire Kevin Jackson….he was telling it like it is. ,

  • Eddie Reynolds says:

    In defense of Kevin Jackson……these are three lyin’ skanks. There is no other way to describe them unless you want to call them prostitutes for the dumbocraps ! And you can bet your sweet _ _ _ they’re gettin’ paid for what they’re doing !

  • Viv says:

    I’m a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and even I don’t believe Ford! I thought her voice sounded phony and never saw tears. Plus, after 60-years, I can remember every detail of the assault on me. I don’t have to lie, change it three times, nor embellish it as Ford did her story.

    • Maddie D. says:

      Same here. Being a victim myself 53 years ago at the age of 14, I figured her out the moment I heard her speak. I hope when all is said and done that she pays dearly for what she has done to destroy this mans life.

    • Sherry says:

      I am in total agreement with you…I am also a survivor of childhood sexual molestation. I too remember it all even though I was only 5 and 6 years old…like it was yesterday. A person doesn’t forget. She did not come across at all like a victim to me. I think she is lying. IF she was a victim, it was from her own foolish indiscretions… partying and drinking, unsupervised at such a young age…a little girl trying to live in an adult world. Now she wants to blame someone for her own stupidity, for monetary gain and to make herself feel like a victim instead of owning up to her own lack of self respect and control. Time to grow up lady and be responsible for your own choices.

    • Abby says:

      Same here and mine was 53 years ago at the age of 17. it was my boyfriend who held a shotgun under my chin and threatened to kill me if I said something. I remember every detail, even the date, how I got there (he picked me up), how I got home(he kicked me out of the house and I had to walk 10 miles home), and he threatened if I didn’t show up the next night, he would come after me. I told my parents. Haven’t seen him since (thank God). He left the state.

      • CHERYL GREENE says:

        Abby, Viv,Maddie…you are exactly right! I was nine…and got away by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin. I can tell you every detail 54 years later! I told my husband Mz. Ford is full of bull-snoockums!

  • elmer wood says:

    Did not think fox would fire someone for telling the truth!

  • Jerry says:

    I think Kevin is right on, All of these three women are trying to destroy a very good man and one of the best Judges to be nominated to the Supreme Court of the US.

  • James says:

    FOX NEWS?? should reconsider this action. He only said what a lot of this country is thinking for too long every one believes a man is guilty if a woman says something happened. What about innocent until proven guilty has this gone away with these accusations??

  • David Ower says:

    fox is slowly turning into an open boarder globalist rag of tv….. how can we fight back when little baby tweets get a great man removed…

  • Ruth says:

    What did Kevin say that was so wrong, Fox News? Just because he has the guts to voice what the rest of us are also saying, you fire him…..Your decision is petty and cowardly. Those women are lying with the help of the demoRATS paying the bills. I honestly think Dr.(?) Ford was “medicated.” An educated person cannot be that dim witted. She still gave no proof of any kind To back up her accusations. It’s very convenient that all these women are anti-Trump and registered Demos. Kevin was right in his wording…

  • Joe Cloud says:

    I like Kevin Jackson a lot and always have. He does not mince his words but usually keeps those words very civil. You know, there are people on Fox like Juan Williams and Shepard Smith who could use some slapping around, but they are liberals and that’s not nice to pick on them….right?

  • Doug says:

    He was fired for telling the truth.

  • KF says:

    I agree with Kevin, nothing wrong with telling like it is!

  • Samara Gale says:

    Fox News; you are slowly becoming more and more like the rotten CBB ABC NBC etc/ I am so disappointed. You were the one news source that I trusted and always knew you would protect conservative views. Kevin Jackson is great. What is wrong with you I will no longer be a supporter

  • mike spencer says:

    Fox daytime programing has gotten to unwatchable. They still have Hannity and Lou Dobbs Tucker and a few more at night but nothing in the daytime.

  • Bonnie says:

    Always remember this is a spiritual test all civilization’s have experienced. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. This is where we are. Wow! Just look at the technology! Looking back most so-called modern scientists and historians don’t even seem to know how advanced some ancient civilizations were. Despite the ancients enjoying advanced physical science and flying expertise they apparently had to take the moral test we’re now going through. I’m talking about archeology etc. Same thing historically. Jesus Christ was put to death for restoring freedom here and hereafter. I may be wrong but I see the parallel with the present persecution of Kavanaugh (who is a Constitutionalist) with the persecution of Jesus Christ who inspired our Constitution, and those power hungry political dictators who want to destroy our freedom.
    For our freedom

  • Kevin is right about his comments

  • Mary Gates says:

    Wow, pathetic….!! I’m disappointed with this…FOX shame on YOU!!! Kevin is 1000000% correct…Maybe you should rethink this! As a woman, i agree with everything Kevin has said! Stop looking so libtardish FOX!!!!!

  • Betty says:

    In all my 85 years I have never seen or heard such charades as those put on by the Left-socialists. They have no morals, honesty or character except to want power!! They don’t care what they say or do to anyone to try to get their way–Ford may have had a bad experience at some point in her life, it is interesting that it came out when it did–The left has taken advantage of this plant, to try and ruin an honest, intelligent man who wants to uphold the constitution and the laws of this Country. What they have done to Kavanaugh will never be forgotten, or forgiven. They are completely low life sponsored by Soros. My their pockets must be bulging with dirty money. God Bless the USA and our President Trump and we pray that the evil Left will one day suffer the consequences–what goes around-comes around. As to Fox–my favorite channel- shame on you for firing a contributor for saying what all of us don’t have the opportunity to say. These women who come out of the woodwork are all paid bimbos -who will say and do anything for the almighty dollar, and those dollars come from very deep pockets–Deplorables, get out and vote RED we need to get rid of the filth in our beautiful country.

  • Fox is beginning to behave like CNN and its ilk! I had such respect for Fox – we even changed our provider from Sky to Fox…but now, I’m beginning to have doubts about Fox.. Fox, you better get your act together or more of us will be replacing you, believe you me!

  • Allen Marston says:

    I Am With Kevin He Spoke The Truth ,Fox News You Are Not Making Many Frends By This

  • RAB says:

    God Bless Kevin in this liberal world now…he was doing his job FOX NEWS…

  • Jerry S. says:

    This why I no longer watch Fox much at all. I record Tucker and fast forward through some of his lib guests, I can’t stand…used to watch Brett B., but he has slanted left too.

  • fred h smith says:

    next thing we know women will charge us with sexual harassment if we just look at them,,,time for burkas..so men wont get in trouble

  • S Davis says:

    I agree with Kevin Jackson. What the democrats did was wrong and if these women had actually had the experience they claimed to have, why did they go to a politician instead of their local police and press charges decades ago when they all claim these incidents happened. As a woman, I personally find their actions against this upstanding, honest man shameful. Karma will pay them a visit. Fox News, I am now going to make OANN my primary news source. They actually report the news without bias toward conservatives.

  • Jon Elshaug says:

    I read his tweets twice, I still don’t see anything wrong with them. Of course there is new management @ Fox News

  • Renee Xuereb says:

    “Faux News” like the Republican Party does not benefit conervatives. They are both enterprises ontrolled by left-wing sympathizing RINO’s who are determined to undermine our nation by compromising with evil Communist Democrats! Kevin Jackson is honest and doesn’t waste time mincing words. It’s unfortunate that the folks at Fox had to make this decision by siding with a woman of low moral character who is only being used by Diane Feinstein in order to sabotage Judge Kavanaugh’s supreme court confirmation!

    Fox News employs a bunmch of feminists and Democrat supporting moderates who are against President Trump. Like Katherine Timpt. She consistently makes a whole bunch of conspiracy theories and even has gone so far as to condemn Brett Kavanaugh for defending himself against Diane Feinsteins bloody coup!. Then there’s left wing contributer, Christopher Hahn who recently branded Judge Kavanaugh as a rapists himself. During a shoot out with conservative, Dan Bongino. During a segment on Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show. Why isnt Fox terminating their contracts for attacking Judge Kavanaugh?

  • Marlene Langert says:

    What is wrong with FOxNews? They fire someone like Kevin who is right on And they refuse to get rid of people like Juan Williams and Shepherd Smith. That is why I listen to OAN more and more and Fox less and less . I love Lou Dobbs on Fox Business and Sean Hannity. Do not watch it during the day at all any more except for things like the Kavanaugh Hearing.

  • Linda says:

    But it was okay what Hillary called the women her husband abused. The double standard is breathtaking

  • Jack says:

    Its a shame. He is a good ,rational commentator.

  • Thom says:

    It was 1960, 58 years ago and I can remember exactly what happened to me. As a 12 year old boy I was embarrassed, ashamed and scared. SHE continued the assaults on me for 3 years until we moved to town. Something happened to Ford, but it wasn’t Judge Kavanaugh that did it! She is just a willing pawn being used by the demoncraps to halt his seating on SCOTUS.

  • LJP says:

    Truth hurts.needs to be said. It’s what we’re thinking.

  • Donald Hults says:

    Kevin is right. I thought Fox was against political correctness. They are caving in slowly but surely but not taking us with them. Everyone at Fox knew that Ford was a paid liar and a very disturbed person but said she was believable. Judge N was the worst.

  • Jacqueline says:

    THEY ARE LYING SKANKS!!! GET OVER YOURSELVES! CAN YOU SAY TREASON. HOW ABOUT MILITARY TRIBUNALS? HANG EM HIGH AND THEN SHOOT EM IN THE HEAD AFTER DROPPING THEM TO THE GROUND, JUST TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE DEAD! WE THE PEOPLE ARE SICK OF THIS SH*T! GET IT? GOT IT? GOOD!!!!!! I SAY THAT WE TWEET ALL THE POLITICIANS WITH JUST A FEW WORDS! TREASON? MILITARY TRIBUNALS? 51,000 PLUS INDICTMENTS! IS YOUR NAME ON ONE OF THEM?

  • RK says:

    looks like the new owner Disney is already taking down the only news Channel that tells the truth
    soon the right wont have any legitimate news stations to watch
    they fire Kevin for some truthful tweets, yet keep Juan Williams who has told out-right lies,mis-quotes the President and his staff,and twists the truth to fit his liberal agenda right on television.
    segmants like Hannity Ingraham Tucker and Jesse’s World will be a thing of the past

  • Catherine Sears says:

    Fox! Why would you fire someone for telling the truth? Oh please don’t become like all the other networks! There won’t be anyone then.
