The Judge – my first recommendation to President Paul if he is elected our first constitutionalist Chief Executive to the Supreme Court – Judge Andrew Napolitano, star of Freedom Watch, is now a regular on the Fox Business Channel.  Here’s an article (actually very positive considering the source) from the New York Times.

This month, Fox confirmed that he was getting a weekly TV show, beginning on Saturday mornings and replaying in prime time on Saturdays and Sundays.

The first TV episode was billed as a “Tea Party summit,” with appearances by the Fox pundit Sarah Palin; Representative Ron Paul, Republican of Texas; and his son Rand Paul, a Republican and candidate in Kentucky for the United States Senate. (The elder Mr. Paul endorsed and wrote a forward for Mr. Napolitano’s most recent book.)

Also on the show were three Tea Party favorites, Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina, Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and the former House majority leader Dick Armey of Texas, Republicans all, or “freedom fighters,” as the host called them. The lone Democratic guest was Gov. Edward G. Rendell of Pennsylvania.

“You know I love the tea parties,” Mr. Napolitano remarked at one point.

Judge Napolitano will be on Fox Business Channel twice every weekend with a new show.  The prominent Virginia libertarian Jacob Hornberger heartily approved the new show’s venue as a triumph of the free market:

“I think Fox is seeing a business opportunity here,” said Jacob G. Hornberger, the president of the Future of Freedom Foundation, a libertarian educational group.

Another leading libertarian, Lew Rockwell, also stressed the importance of libertarians in the media:

Lew Rockwell, the chairman of the libertarian Ludwig von Mises Institute and, like Mr. Hornberger, a regular guest on Mr. Napolitano’s webcasts, said he considered “Freedom Watch” to be “the most important libertarian broadcast in the history of the American media.”

“There has never been a show willing to address the difficult subjects involving liberty as this one does, let alone to do it so effectively and entertainingly. And Republican statism gets no free pass,” he said in an e-mail message.

Of course there are critics.  Bill Press lamented that right wing views are getting a “second propaganda channel.”  (That begs the question:  What are CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, the New York Times, etc.)

If you get Fox Business Channel, watch the Judge!  Saturdays at 10 am and 8 pm and Sundays 7 pm and 11pm.  I think Comcast digital has FBC on channel 106 (I can’t get that channel!).  Let’s fill the waves with Tea Party and Libertarian ideas!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
