Fox News refusing to say if Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show was cancelled after Islamophobic rant against Dem congresswoman
Fox News will not be airing a new episode of "Justice" with former Judge Jeanine Pirro on Saturday, Variety reports.
The newspaper noted the move comes, "just days after the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news network said it condemned remarks the outspoken host made about Minnesota Democrat Ihan Omar."
“We’re not commenting on internal scheduling matters," a Fox spokesperson said.

Fox did not elaborate.
But the network did comment on Pirro last Sunday.
”We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar,” the network's statement read. “They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”
