Rudy Giuliani reportedly "banned from Fox News"

Immediately before his tired and emotional performance emceeing a 9/11 dinner (during which he threatened America's top general and rambled on about Prince Andrew's supposed pedophilia) Rudy Giuliani was apparently banned from making Fox News appearances.

bookers have told both Giulianis the ban comes from the top, sources said. The former New York City mayor had been a fixture on the network.

"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." In 1996, Giuliani's administration advocated for Time Warner to carry the newly launched Fox News Channel, intervening in a dispute between Murdoch and the cable provider.
