A couple of days ago, there was a report that Rudy Giuliani received a ban from Fox News. Politico revealed that the former Mayor of New York found out about his exclusion from the network on the eve of Sept. 11th. 

“Rudy is really hurt because he did a big favor for Rupert [Murdoch],” a source close to Giuliani said. “He was instrumental in getting Fox on Time Warner so it could be watched in New York City.”

Like all news outlets, Fox News commemorated that 20th anniversary of 9/11, Giuliani didn’t feature in any programming, segments, or panels recalling the events on that day. 

Despite his absences on the network, it’s not because of a ban Fox News has on Giuliani. Deadline did some further digging on the matter, even speaking with someone familiar with the situation. 

The source told the online news site that there’s no ban on Giuliani from appearing on the network, adding that the ex-mayor isn’t important to have on their programming. 

“The mayor has a long and distinguished career, but in terms of recent coverage, he simply isn’t relevant,” the source said.

Another insider explained to Deadline that Giuliani wasn’t booked for 9/11 remembrance coverage since the network wanted to focus on the trio of memorials and the families of the fallen.

“Very thankful to have gotten a third negative PCR test result this afternoon,” said Navarro.

Navaro and Hostin’s sudden departure seemed to catch Joy Behar and Sara Haines off guard. The panel was minutes away from welcoming Vice President Kamala Harris to the show.

There is growing concern about the direction of MSNBC under the guidance of its new President Rashida Jones, according to The New York Post.

Staffers are reportedly concerned about an impending battle with CNN whereas management is not focused enough on the network’s primetime talk lineup, according to the report. 

“Rashida’s love is in hard news,” an insider said, pointing to the exec’s past roles guiding MSNBC’s daytime news coverage and NBC News’ coverage. “She doesn’t really get what primetime does.”

The worries center on the near departure of star Rachel Maddow who recently negotiated a new deal. The deal is reportedly worth $30 million and runs through 2024 and will allow her to develop shows across the network. 

Jones is the first Black executive to run a major cable news network.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo Accused of Sexual Harassment

“Shelley Ross who worked for ABC News and CBS News alleged Cuomo grabbed her inappropriately at a work party in front of her husband.”

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is facing allegations that he sexually harassed a former television producer in a Manhattan bar in 2005.

Shelley Ross who worked for ABC News and CBS News alleged Cuomo grabbed her inappropriately at a work party in front of her husband. Ross made the allegations in New York Times op-ed Friday.

“When Mr. Cuomo entered the Upper West Side bar, he walked toward me and greeted me with a strong bear hug while lowering one hand to firmly grab and squeeze the cheek of my buttock,” she wrote.

Ross served as Cuomo’s executive producer at Primetime Live. The alleged incident occurred while she was serving as the producer of an entertainment special.

 “’I can do this now that you’re no longer my boss,’ he said to me with a kind of cocky arrogance. ‘No you can’t,’ I said, pushing him off me at the chest while stepping back, revealing my husband, who had seen the entire episode at close range. We quickly left.”

Last month, Cuomo’s older brother Andrew, resigned as New York’s Governor following a barrage of sexual misconduct accusations.

Cuomo gave a statement to Ross for her column: “As Shelley acknowledges, our interaction was not sexual in nature. It happened 16 years ago in a public setting when she was a top executive at ABC. I apologized to her then, and I meant it.”
