Fox Philadelphia anchor suspended for saying Conway 'good at bull----'

A Philadelphia television morning show host was suspended Thursday after saying President Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway was "good at bullshit." 

The reprimand came after Fox 29's "Good Day Philadelphia" co-host Alex Holley asked Mike Jerrick and two guests on set what Conway meant when she said "alternative facts" earlier in the week.

"It means she's good at bullshit," replied Jerrick, who has been on television for more than 30 years. 

Conway used the term in an interview with NBC's Chuck Todd on Sunday as she defended White House press secretary Sean Spicer's claim that Trump's Friday inauguration was "the most watched both in person and around the world." 
 
Those on the set all laughed before Holley and Jerrick apologized to the audience, and the anchor corrected himself to say "BS."

Jerrick did not appear on "Good Day" on Wednesday or Thursday morning before it was reported by Philadelphia magazine later Thursday that Jerrick, 67, had been suspended from the show for an indefinite period, citing the host. Jerrick confirmed the suspension to the magazine.

Fox Television Stations said in a statement that it had addressed the incident but didn't give specifics.

“This is not in line with FOX Television Stations guidelines,” the statement said.
