Judge Andrew Napolitano’s Freedom Watch is Back

by | Jun 7, 2016

In 2009, Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst and former New Jersey state Judge Andrew Napolitano launched on the internet his interview and commentary show Freedom Watch. The next year, Napolitano’s show of the same name began a television run on Fox Business. The show’s run ended in 2012.

Since then, Napolitano has kept busy with many activities including writing books; speaking around the country; appearing frequently as an interviewee, and on occasion as a guest host, on Fox News and Fox Business shows; and making short “Judge Napolitano’s Chambers” video editorials for the Fox News website. Still, many people have missed, over the last few years, Napolitano hosting his own show.

Well, it looks like Freedom Watch is back in a new iteration. On Tuesday, Fox News posted on its website a six-minute Freedom Watch episode in which host Napolitano interviews political commentator and radio talk show host Alan Colmes, The interview is focused on whether Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) should continue his quest for the Democratic presidential nomination. Napolitano suggests the answer is “yes.” Colmes disagrees.

Napolitano’s many fans will be happy to see this addition to Napolitano’s media activities. Let’s hope many more interviews follow. But, one has to wonder: Is a new regularly-scheduled, longer show along the lines of the old Freedom Watch on its way? We will have to wait and see.

Watch here Napolitano’s interview with Colmes:

Napolitano is a member of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity Advisory Board.
