A TV anchor in Philadelphia has been suspended from Fox 29 over his on-air insult about President Trump’s adviser and former campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway.
Mike Jerrick is a co-host on Good Day Philadelphia, and on Tuesday, he held a discussion on Conway’s recent Meet the Press interview with Chuck Todd. Jerrick was not impressed with Conway’s quote about “alternative facts,” which he made clear when he made the panel laugh by saying “She’s good at bullshit!”
Jerrick apologized for his outburst shortly afterwards, but the station decided suspend him for a week over the incident. A Fox representative gave a statement on the matter to Philadelphia Magazine, where they said Jerrick’s comments were “not in line with FOX Television Stations guidelines and the matter has been addressed.”
A source also indicated that Jerrick’s suspension was due to his profanity, not for political reasons.
