HAVE YOU SEE THIS?
“NEW YORK — A military analyst for Fox News said Tuesday that he was quitting the network because he believed it had turned into a propaganda machine for President Donald Trump’s administration.
Ralph Peters, a retired U.S. Army officer, said he told Fox at the beginning of the month that he did not want his contributor contract renewed.
“Over my decade at Fox, I was long proud of the association,” Peters wrote in an email that was distributed to colleagues at Fox News, and first reported by BuzzFeed News. “Now I am ashamed.”
Fox said in a statement that the network did not want attributed to a specific spokesperson that Peters was entitled to his opinion, “despite the fact that he’s choosing to use it as a weapon in order to get attention.” Fox said it was proud of its opinion programming and prime-time hosts.
Peters said he believed Fox had “degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration.””
Personally, I believe that’s true about Sean Hannity more than anyone. EVERY other FOX host shows some impartiality, in my opinion. Perhaps his ideology has changed and he can’t stand any positive coverage of Trump at all? I know Trump’s behavior can foster that, but..
This is funny! I just read this, which I had already written above: “Peters did not mention any names, but Fox’s leading prime-time host, Sean Hannity, has been the most vocal defender of the president while talking of a “deep state” and casting doubt on justice officials.”
VERY sadly, this article says Shep Smith has renewed his contract, though he says …that “…Fox’s opinion hosts “don’t really have rules” and can say whatever they want.” (Z: I think that’s democracy and freedom of the press?)
Um…do CNN or MSNBC “have rules?” Yes: the rule is; GET TRUMP OUT.
