I am surprised because other soap actors have been released from their positions and it was NOT reported on Fox's entertainment section nor were they reported on Radar, TMZ and whatever other crappy news sites out there.

I am rather surprised that an affiliate station would run a story about the replacement of a soap.

It's their entertainment section and they ran the story when he got fired too.

I am just surprised that he is so popular that any entertainment report (affiliate or national) is talking about a soap actor.
I never pegged that a soap actor of his calibre would garner a mention on an entertainment report that is not soap opera dedicated.

I wouldn't read too much into it towards his popularity, it was probably a slow news day and they needed something. :shrug:

I don't think it's his popularity making it "newsworthy ". I think it is just the scandal that has drawn a lot of attention. That and his psychotic fan/defenders.
if you look at the article, Fox isn't actually reporting anything at all. They didn't send anyone to investigate or interview or write anything up.
All Fox is doing is citing that Radar Online is reporting this. Radar Online has the scoop of this rumor.
Back when Muhney was first fired, the Fox "article" simply quoted TMZ and Radar Online.
If you're surprised why Fox News would report this:
"Fox News: Fair and Balanced" -- re-reporting what celebrity gossip websites say!
(Just had to add my snarky comment there).
But on a more serious note ... why would they have an "entertainment section"?
Well the name "Fox" originally came from "20th Century Fox" -- the movie studio.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_assets_owned_by_21st_Century_Fox
So even though Fox has cited both Radar and TMZ, I am still shocked that they would pick up the story. I am aware of Fox News reputation as well as their slogan "Fair and Balanced", but do they report on all actors/actresses (including soaps, plays, etc.)? If the answer is yes, they report on all actors/actresses then I would not be surprised. But since they do not - that's why I am surprised.
Also thanks for the reminder that Fox came out of "20th Century Fox". Even though I never doubted it, because seeing all the movies that start with 20th Century Fox billing or the ginormous studios sprawling in LA, etc. I am still surprised that this news website pick up such a story when they do not have a dedicated soap column or section. When was the last time they reported something on Mr. Eric Breaden? So hence my surprise!
