Fox News has suspended two on-air contributors in the wake of crude language they used on different programs on Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network Monday to discuss President Barack Obama.
"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,"said Bill Shine, senior executive vice president of programming for both networks, in a statement. "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."
Dash on Monday used some salty language in her criticism of President Barack .
"His speech was an epic fail," Dash said on the Fox News Channel show "Outnumbered"
in reference to Obama's Sunday night address on terrorism
. "It was like when you have to go to dinner with your parents, but you have a party to go to afterwards, that's what it felt like."
Dash noted that Obama changed into a tuxedo immediately after completing the speech, then headed with first lady Michelle Obama to the Kennedy Center honors.
"I did not feel any better. I didn't feel any passion from him," Dash said. "I felt like he [couldn't] give a s---, excuse me, like he [couldn't] care less. He [couldn't] care less."
Fox managed to cut the word from broadcast, but co-host Harris Faulker managed an audible "Woo!" as the word slipped out.
Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, appearing on Fox Business Network's "Varney & Co."
called Obama a "total p----" before host Stuart Varney warned him "you can't use language like that on the program."
