Fox News cut ties with radio host Todd Starnes earlier this month.

Starnes has a history of controversial comments, Mediaite noted, listing some of his headline-making remarks. Mediaite listed:

“In July, Starnes told Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to take a “one-way plane ticket back to whatever third world hellhole you came from.

“The radio host has also compared abortion to the Holocaust, called for anti-Kavanaugh protesters to be “tasered, handcuffed and dragged out of the building,” and — just this week — questioned with pro-Trump pastor Robert Jeffress whether Democrats worship the demon Moloch.”

According to the Wrap, “Fox News on Wednesday confirmed that Starnes is no longer working at the network but did not elaborate on the reasons behind his departure. An individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap Starnes’ exit “was in the works well before Monday.”

A Fox News spokesperson told iMediaEthics “We can confirm The Wrap’s report that Todd Starnes is no longer with the network.” iMediaEthics has written to Starnes.
