Joan Rivers Uninvited To Fox & Friends After Criticizing Sarah Palin

Reported by Ellen - January 19, 2011 -

So much for that freedom of speech Sean Hannity, Dr. Laura and Sarah Palin were championing right there on Fox News. Salon reports, "Was Joan Rivers uninvited from Fox News for insulting Sarah Palin? Yes. Probably."

PAGING ANDREW SULLIVAN. Rivers was booked on Fox -- presumably "Fox & Friends" -- to promote an upcoming reality program. Then, over the weekend, she called Sarah Palin "stupid," into a video camera, because TMZ asked Joan Rivers what she thought about Sarah Palin, and that was the inevitable response. Before calling her "stupid," Rivers issued the following blood libel: "I think Sarah Palin is an amazing woman. I think she represents everything strong a woman can be, and I think she should go someplace -- to another planet, to show them, and get out of our face."

Apparently, if you want to use the N-word or advocate "reloading" against a Congresswoman and post a map with her district in crosshairs, you're a Fox News hero. But criticize Sarah Palin? Not so much.
