UPDATE: On his Facebook page this afternoon, Bolling now denies that he was attacking Napolitano. Bolling states that "the liberal media took my response to a comment here and tried (but failed) to make it look like an attack on The Judge." Bolling's response:
The following is Bolling's Facebook wall post from this morning:
Fox Business host Andrew Napolitano is drawing condemnation from colleague Eric Bolling for his belief that the government lied about the attacks on 9-11.
On the November 23 edition of The Alex Jones Show, Napolitano said that it's "hard for me to believe that" World Trade Center Building 7 "came down by itself" -- a central tenet of 9-11 conspiracy theories -- and claimed that "twenty years from now, people will look at 9-11 the way we look at the assassination of JFK today. It couldn't possibly have been done the way the government told us."
Bobby... I did research.. all the funerals I attended. The comforting of families of my co-workers and the fundraisers I did for the first responders. I watched the plane fly into my place of work... take this "truther" crap and shove it..
Bolling -- whose Fox Business show airs after Napolitano's -- wrote a separate post about the topic this morning, in which referenced Napolitano and called 9-11 Trutherism "B.S." that is "hurtful to those of us who lost loved ones & co-workers. Go elsewhere." From Bolling's November 26 Facebook post:
Judge is a very smart man & great friend.. on this, however, I know more than him, Geraldo, Alex Jones. I was one of a handful who had access to the site immediately after the terror attacks. I spent the next seven years there..feet from the burning rubble. I KNOW what happened. Radical Muslims killed my friends. NOT MY GOVT! Your B.S. is hurtful to those of us who lost loved ones & co-workers. Go elsewhere.
When Media Matters drew attention to Napolitano's 9-11 Truth views, we noted that his position contrasts sharply with his Fox News colleagues, who have condemned 9-11 Truthers and those associated with them. Will other Fox Newsers like Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly and Brian Kilmeade condemn Napolitano as they have with other truthers?
