Former Fox News analyst calls Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson “prostitutes.”

Peters, who left his job as a military analyst for Fox News earlier this year declaring the network a “destructive propaganda machine” for President Trump, spent much of his sit-down with Brian Stelter excoriating his former employer. He explained that he left Fox because he could not be part of an institution that was “assaulting the Constitution, the constitutional order, the rule of law.”

“Fox isn’t immoral, it’s amoral,” Peters explained. “It was opportunistic. Trump was just a gift to Fox and Fox in turn was a gift to Trump.” Echoing Stelter — and inadvertently evoking a particularly iconic moment from HBO’s Succession — he said, “it’s a closed loop, so people who only listen to Fox have an utterly skewed view of reality.”

Later in the segment, Stelter played side-by-side clips from Fox News and MSNBC on Trump’s decision to strip former CIA director John Brennan of his security clearance. While Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson accused Brennan of “serious misconduct” and questioned his “intellectual” competence, the MSNBC hosts and pundits blasted the president for punishing his prominent political critic.

Asked by Stelter if his former colleagues are “proud of their performance,” Peters closed his eyes for a second and said, “The polite word is prostitutes, so we’ll just leave it that.”

“I don’t want to be the go-to guy for Fox-bashing forever,” Peters added. “But what Fox is doing is causing real harm to our country right now.”

Why can’t these assholes tell the truth ON Fox News, and not wait until they are already off to suddenly grow a conscience?

    More proof that trump is using his presidency as revenge because he is mentally ill or just a really, really evil insecure thing( can’t bring myself to call him a person). Resigning isn’t punishment, he needs to be impeached and convicted as a traitor.

    Trump considered excluding President Obama from daily intelligence briefings for ex-presidents: report

    President Donald Trump’s decision to revoke the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan due to resentment over personal criticism and his role in the Russia investigation was an egregious violation of his office’s power. But as it turns out, Trump has considered an even more astounding measure: go after former President Barack Obama himself.

    This revelation comes from a report in the New Yorker that was published on Monday:

    As Trump stepped up his public and private attacks on Obama, some of the new President’s advisers thought that he should take the extraordinary step of denying Obama himself access to intelligence briefings that were made available to all of his living predecessors. Trump was told about the importance of keeping former Presidents, who frequently met with foreign leaders, informed. In the end, Trump decided not to exclude Obama, at the urging of [Former National Security Adviser H.R.] McMaster…….

      Gosh and he never thought of taking away Bill Clinton’s security clearance, what about Hillary’s? since he has an ax to grind with them also, must have slipped his pea brain at the time.Or could it be they have “something” on him.

    ot?”The Trump administration on Tuesday proposed replacing the Clean Power Plan, the centerpiece of former President Barack Obama’s regulatory efforts to combat climate change.

    The proposal from the Environment Protection Agency, which was published in the Federal Register, is now open for a public comment period. A final EPA rule is expected later this year.”<rawstory

      “Arnold coined the term “ecoterrorism” in 1983 article and later published the book Eco-terror: The Violent Agenda to Save Nature” ““destroy environmentalists.””
      “It’s kind of those boogeymen that the Trump administration and similar folks have been trying to implant in our imagination — these concepts made up to create public panic,”
      “In addition to coining “ecoterrorism,” he was also the leading force behind the “Wise Use” movement — an anti-environmentalist approach to managing federal lands that emphasizes extraction. Its agenda, spelled out by Arnold in 1988, includes drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, opening all public lands to mining and oil exploration, and clear-cutting old growth in national forests”

    FB>”Actually, if what’s going on at Florida’s beaches is any indication, a Red Wave means millions of dead fish, the pervasive smell of rotting flesh, poisoned water, toxic soil, a ruined economy, sickness, despair, and a state of emergency.

    On second thought, maybe Trump is on to something here.”

    OT: The Manafort jury has asked the judge what to do if they can’t reach a consensus on one count of the 18.

    Hopefully we’ll hear a verdict soon. I’m a little nervous. If he gets off an all charges, Trump’s gonna have a free-for-all, and Mueller might be sunk.
