Fox News has sacked contributor Kevin Jackson for his tweets about Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers.
Jackson used a pejorative to refer to the three women who have accused the Supreme Court nominee of inappropriate behaviour saying, “TO HELL with the notion that women must be believed no matter what”.
Kevin Jackson is a conservative radio talk show host and author about black culture in the United States. He had been a Fox News contributor since 2014. Fox News, however, said his tweets were inappropriate.
“Kevin Jackson has been terminated as a contributor. His comments on today’s hearings were reprehensible and do not reflect the values of Fox News” a company spokesperson said in a statement.
His dismissal comes after Fox’s daytime journalists and commentators highlighted Christine Blasey Ford’s credibility at Thursday’s hearing, before praising Kavanaugh’s testimony as persuasive.
