It’s Official! Freedom Watch Coming To TV!

After a little more than a year in existence Freedom Watch with Judge Andrew Napolitano will be making the switch to television. We just received official word that this is happening.

The new show will air during a weekend prime time spot on the Fox Business Network. The exact debut date/time are not known at this time.

You have helped make this happen by supporting and watching the Judge’s show since it debuted on the Web in mid-February of last year. If you are feeling nostalgic you can listen to that first show here.

We have to continue supporting the Judge and the freedom message by spreading the word about the TV show once it begins airing on the Fox Business Network.

Let the ratings soar and make “Stay Free!” the mission statement of every American!

    This is so awesome!
    I'm very excited for you Judge. You really, really deserve it more than most people that I can think of. I wish you the best of luck from here. We need more people like you to keep spreading the message of freedom and liberty and keeping our ideas alive.
    "Stay free!"

    Finally, the second true libertarian on Fox! First Stossel, now the Judge! (Glenn Beck need not apply). Congrats, Judge. Looking forward to seeing it on TV.

    That's GREAT! Looks like all those letters to FOX are paying off.

    We need more people telling the truth on TV. The internet age is the age of truth, we can't let them get away with the lies anymore. The Revolution is alive and well.

    While I understand where you're coming from (re: Beck) it doesn't serve anyone or anything to be elitist. Sure, Glenn has displayed overt neocon tendencies over and over again, but if you've been paying attention, he's slowly seeing the light. Slowly but surely, it appears he's seeing the error of his interventionist ways. Give him a chance.

    Surely you weren't born a hardcore libertarian. Few of us are. Most of us start off as a wild-eyed liberal, or whatever our parents were (or the opposite, for the rebellious), and then eventually see the error of our ways.

    We're all on our own journey, so I'd like to gently recommend that we give the Glenn Becks of the world some slack, as long as they seem to be heading in the right direction.

    Yes Mike it "appears" Glen is seeing the light. Just watch out because that's his job to bring people like you back in the fold of the false right. Glen will turn on you as soon as needed!
    Case in point. He was for the bail out under Bush. In fact he said it was not nearly big enough. Then there was him and O' talking about a VAT paid directly to the national debt. AKA the private Federal Reserve bankers. No I do not trust Glenn any longer!

    I just learned to my chagrin that the Fox Business Network is on a channel that I don't have in my $50-per-month cable package. If the program won't appear on the Fox News channel, then I think Judge Nap's moving to TV could be a step backward. I'll cross my fingers that the weekly show will be recorded and posted to YouTube on a regular and timely basis, so those who don't get the FNC will still be able to watch the best public affairs program ever.

    FINALLY!! I have despised Fox News for years now but even I will watch the Judge, Rockwell, Schiff, Ron Paul, and other free market constitutionalists drop truth bombs on the American Populace like never before. There is an awakening happening and one way for Fox to polish up their extremely tarnished reputation is putting this show on the air. THANK YOU!!

    I have no TV. Judge please stay on the computer. Maybe you could do both? Have the tv show streaming too? Somehow?Please. You don't want to miss out on those who would see you on the computer but who do not get you on tv. You may loose more people than gain.

    If he "turns on me" it doesn't mean I will change my opinion. It costs me nothing to support him when he's right. And to support him when he's right, it doesn't mean I support all his opinions.

    All I'm saying is that absolutism and elitism does more to splinter the general movement toward freedom than anything else.

    I agree with Steve, I don’t get time to watch TV on the network’s schedule, and Fox Business isn’t available anyway. I have to watch “Stossel” on YouTube.

    Please keep FreedomWatch available online.

    I miss out on Stossel, too. Only bits of his show is put up at his website. Can't even get the full episodes on YouTube like you used to be able to.

  14. MBrown Said,

    Great news, Mr. Napolitano!

    Just please (when you're on) explain your different stance from the other neo-con 'Fox'-affiliates. Otherwise, it's like Ron Paul's Anti-Income Tax/Tea Party-movement being hijacked by Sarah Palin & the other moderates. They're helping to dilute the voice of the real people for change, and meanwhile promoting us as "domestic terrorists". (We lost the 2008-election, because the neo-cons shut Ron Paul out of the fold & otherwise mocked him. 'Fox' still has to own up to the fact that they filtered primary-debate results, in order to make Dr. Paul look like he was trailing the other candidates!)

    P.S.: When it comes to Obama's tactics for pushing racism, refer back to Saul Alinsky (who coached Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Pete Seeger, etc.) from the 'Highlander Folk School' in Monteagle, Tennessee. His doctrine of hatred has also bred the Jesse Jacksons, Al Sharptons, Cornel Wests, & Obamas:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O698nAyN0Hw

    Reference Manning Johnson's "Color, Communism, & Common-Sense" as a good source for solving America's racial-divide, as he was a former 'Communist Party'-member who saw how Marxism was being used to manifest destruction of Black & White communities:http://www.manningjohnson.org/ (He should have been president instead of Obama, if there was going to be a minority as head of state. The man deserves a national holiday!)

    Also, here is the 45-step agenda of the Reds (cited in 1963, before Congress) to take control of the U.S.:http://www.uhuh.com/nwo/communism/comgoals.htm (Please spread the word to Americans, while you have the privilege of t.v.-exposure! Thomas Woods will back you up on these things, if you have him on as a guest!)

    I don't get Fox Buisness either and i am not worried about it because i am sure it will be bootlegged or offered online by those who do. You should not be upset it is going to TV just because you can't watch it. The whole point of getting it on TV is to educate those who don't share our beliefs yet.

    Currently the only people watching this show are members of the r3volution. When it goes to the TV it will be opening it up to a whole new audience.

    The reason I dislike Beck is because he goes back and forth on the issues. Also, he acts like a clown when he jumps around, draws on his chalkboard and cries. Someone acting like that makes it easy for people to laugh at our ideas and shrug them off as kooky because the person presenting them acts like a lunatic.

    We need someone like the Judge who is mentally stable and presents ideas logically instead of just through emotion.

Did they mention Dr. Paul was right about the economy when he was running for president?? No.

    April 23, 2010 @ 12:05 am

    Not sure I follow your anti-anti-communist line, but Beck is moving away from Limbaugh and Hannity slowly. He still pisses me off, but I have seen him edging away from the dark side over the past year or so. He also has stopped bashing Paul and even comments positively on him on rare occasions. Something the Limbannity bots will never do. He even recently began to acknowledge the connection between our interventionism in the ME and terrorist strikes against us. Progress, but way to slow for my liking.

  34. buzzard Said,

    April 23, 2010 @ 12:15 am

    That's right pitbull, the SPLC just put out a list of the top 40 patriots (terrorists) and you can see it at fourwinds10.com – yes the judge is on it.

    Exactly, how long does it take to understand? Supposedly this all started during late 2007 early 2008 during the last election cycle. How many years does it take to see the truth?

    Even if he does do we want someone prancing around and drawing pictures on chalkboards introducing our ideas to the masses? Of course not! That is why we need an intellectual and someone intelligent like the Judge.

    Stossel has been good, but fairly tame. And, it is obvious that he sides with the CATO guys while completely ignoring Ron Paul and the LRC/Mises camp.

    April 23, 2010 @ 4:03 am

    Brilliant! What the libertarian movement needs is more intelligent, articulate, consistent people to spread the ideas of freedom, personal liberty, sound money and limited government. I cannot tolerate listening to or watching Rush or Glenn due to their wildly exaggerated antics and claims. I hope Fox News is moving towards a more respectable and rational format. It looks like they have a good start with Stossel and Napolitano.

    Same here. I got rid of my TV last summer. Judge, please allow online access to your shows in the future. At least allow people to post replays on YouTube without Fox demanding that YouTube remove the content. We are trying to save our country.

    For example, ask yourself, why is Alex Jones so effective? In large part because he makes his work product freely available to the public. It needs to be free. Fox should take a lesson from Alex Jones. The Fox Business Network will reap greater profits from its current and future programming if they make your show freely available and accessible. How/Why? Credibility. You bring credibility to the network. Fox, like most of MSM now, needs to invest in credibility — it's the reason MSM ratings are in the toilet now.

    Obama admits (after his senatorial run) to not being born in Hawaii.
    Who would believe Obama is actually on this video admitting he was not born in Hawaii but was born in Kenya and is not even a citizen. Obviously he made these statements because he did not know at that time that a president must be a "natural born" citizen. OOPS!
