FOX NEWS is a national security threat.
Can we please stop pretending that it isn’t.
This week and next are going to be a bit slower. It’s moving time for my father-in-law and one of our sons, and his beautiful bride of a year… into their first house.
Still, some things must be said and said in a straight forward fashion that hits readers between the eyes.
I have been writing about terrorism, extremism, violent extremism, radicalization and national threats for a while now. I’ve also been up close and personal while still in uniform, dealing directly with these threats. To be clear, I know the difference between a political ideology and an extremist ideology, rife with adversarial propaganda, like Putin’s.
The short piece below I posted this morning on LinkedIn and felt it made a good topic for today. This has been hastened by the under oath testimony in the Dominion voting machine lawsuit against FOX News, or Putin’s finest.
The depositions to date reveal that FOX, directed by owner, Rupert Murdoch to support Trump’s “big lie”, Putin’s talking points and Covid mis/ disinformation, knowingly lied to the American people. Their perpetual campaigning was the primary media that contributed to:
The January 6th armed insurrection/ coup attempt by Republican violent extremists (now in control of the party) posing as conservatives
Hundreds of thousands of American deaths from Covid
Putin’s US directed propaganda regarding his illegal, immoral and genocidal invasion of Ukraine
The facts are beyond clear about these three bullet points above are all sourced to the most credible data, reporting and analysis.
The US Department of Defense still allows this anti US propaganda machine to operate on bases, barracks, ships and more. Seeing as how military, active and Veterans are engaged in extremist organizations at a rate higher than their percentage of the US population base and DoD has accurately been called out for not doing anything or very little to stem this threat, it’s not hard to see complicity from the JOINT CHIEFS of STAFF in allowing FOX to continue. This is an American disgrace and is comparable to allowing AQ, ISIS or similar to play ad nauseam to US service-members.
Enough is enough. As the article below clearly states, high-priced and prominent think tanks on US and allied national security threats refuse to address this issue, more often than not. It’s because when political control in Washington changes, they don’t want to diminish their opportunities for big research dollars.
Well, this issue is the “insider threat” of all insider threats. It swayed our election in 2016 and still enables the extremist party in control of our House of Representatives to make extremist policy, not policy based on American values.
My post this morning on LinkedIn is below, which is based on Ruth Ben-Ghiat’s Substack called, “Lucid” today.
Thank you Ruth
You will note below that I “tag” primary US national security institutions/ agencies and top tier credible news outlets. This is a valuable tactic to raise credible awareness to decision-makers inside the Beltway. You can do this as well.
“This post is what it means to be a mis/ disinformation expert. The problem that I have with most Large think tanks is that they tiptoe around sensitive politics.
So, let’s get this straight; don’t tell us that you’re a serious national security expert on adversarial influence if you don’t address issues like this in order to keep your options open with the so-called, “both sides.”
Fox News Media is a top tier, insider threat to US national security. Their work, prominently supports Putin, a top tier national security threat and is at the very core of hundreds of thousands of US deaths, by way of their knowing and calculated dissemination of a mountain of COVID, mis/ disinformation. Say the following outloud and you’ll see what I mean: “The Office of the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives recently handed over sensitive video evidence re: the armed rebellion against the United States of America to FOX, who was complicit in the “big lie.”
Thank goodness some experts will speak out with courage and integrity. Thank you Ruth Ben-Ghiat “
p.s. SECDEF, why does FOX still play on US bases and ships? You wouldn’t allow AQ, ISIS or the Klan to run on bases, why the hell do you allow FOX?
