Fox News employees say they’re ‘fantasizing’ about following former colleague’s ‘bombshell’ resignation

Published

on

After former Fox News contributor Ralph Peters’ resignation letter calling the network a “propaganda machine” leaked earlier this week, employees at the company said it caused internal strife — and some jealousy.

CNN reported Wednesday that an employee who spoke to them on condition of anonymity said the letter hit Fox News staff “like a bombshell.”

“The stunning note reverberated through the Fox News community,” CNN’s Oliver Darcy wrote. “Employees passed it along to other employees, people familiar with the matter said, with many agreeing with the thrust of the note: That Fox News opinion personalities were out of control in their devotion to [President Donald] Trump.”

Acknowledging their agreement with Peters’ letter, one employee told CNN that they were “jealous” of him for cutting ties with the network in such a fashion — and that they “fantasized” about doing something similar.

Along with rumblings among low and mid-level staffers, a person familiar with the internal Fox News dialogue surrounding Peters’ resignation told CNN that executives are also concerned about the stunning and public departure of the decorated veteran and conservative commentator.

Darcy noted that Fox News executives’ fears are not unfounded — he will be free to work with other networks once his contract expires next week.

Trump accused by ex-Defense Secretary of putting US on ‘the trail toward a dictatorship’

Published

During an appearance on CNN on Friday morning, former Defense Secretary William Cohen - who also served in the U.S. Senate as a Republican -- denounced Donald Trump in no uncertain terms, saying his use of military personnel against anti-police brutality protesters is a sign he has set the country on the path to a dictatorship.

To emphasize his point, he later called Trump the "dictator-in-chief."

Speaking with host Jim Sciutto, Cohen didn't mince words after the CNN host noted that the president and his former attorney called the protesters "terrorists."

"What does it mean for you to hear a sitting president dismissing a whole range of protesters, who in fact were largely peaceful around the White House, dismissing a whole range of them as terrorists? What does that mean to you?" the CNN host asked.

Good riddance to very bad rubbish: Here are 5 of the ugliest moments in the Steve King Hall of Shame

Published

on

On, Tuesday, June 2, there was a major bombshell in Iowa politics: far-right Rep. Steve King, in Iowa’s 4th Congressional District, lost a GOP primary battle to Iowa State Sen. Randy Feenstra. It remains to be seen whether a Republican or a Democrat will win that seat in November, but one thing is for sure: it won’t be King, whose history of racism, homophobia and religious extremism is so disturbing that even GOP voters in a conservative district in Iowa finally rejected him.
