Judge Andrew Napolitano: ‘KINDLY STOP SENDING EMAILS TO FOX,’ ‘please stop NOW’

Last night was the final installment of Fox Business Network’s “Freedom Watch,” hosted by Judge Andrew Napolitano. The program will be replaced by reruns of some of FBN’s dayside business programming until the new primetime premieres next Monday.

The cancellation is not sitting well with many fans of “Freedom Watch”, who have been emailing Fox News executives and talent. Napolitano has taken to his Facebook page to try and end the matter, using ALL CAPS for added effect:

As a favor to me, and as I have asked this past weekend, PLEASE STOP SENDING EMAILS TO MY COLLEAGUES AT FOX ABOUT THE CANCELLATION OF FreedomWatch; and please stop NOW.

You can read Napolitano’s open letter here, or after the jump if you don’t have a Facebook account.

Dear Friends–

Many of you are not happy with the cancellation of FreedomWatch, and you have sent emails to my Fox colleagues expressing that unhappiness. In television, shows are cancelled all the time. Two of my former shows have been cancelled, and after each cancellation, Fox has rewarded me with more and better work. This cancellation–along with others that accompanied it–was the result of a business judgment here, and is completely unrelated to the FreedomWatch message. It would make a world of a difference for all of us, if you would KINDLY STOP SENDING EMAILS TO FOX.

I am well. Your values are strong. I will continue to articulate those values here at Fox. But the emails many of you are sending are unfairly interfering with my work and that of my colleagues here. The emails even violate our values because they interfere with the use of private property. I have accepted the cancellation decision with good cheer and a sense of gearing up for the future. You should as well.

As a favor to me, and as I have asked this past weekend, PLEASE STOP SENDING EMAILS TO MY COLLEAGUES AT FOX ABOUT THE CANCELLATION OF FreedomWatch; and please stop NOW.

All the best, apn.

Update: Napolitano’s show was slated to end on Friday, but Napolitano wanted to run some of his favorite episodes, so FBN let him end his run on Monday. The rest of the week will be “best of” episodes of “Freedom Watch.”
