    A very conservative retired lieutenant colonel, Fox News contributor and Obama critic Ralph Peters quit Tuesday and denounced the network and President Donald Trump in an email to colleagues. He had previously been given time out from Fox for calling Obama a ****y.

    Bold emphasis mine.

    Its Ralph Peters which isn't mentioned in the OP. Most of the propaganda machine he's referring to is probably about Sean Hannity.



    Right now loads of never-trumpers are googling him and finding out the river of conservative screed flowing from him.

    Thanks. I don’t know him. @juanm, why not identify him in your original post?

    I did a copy paste of an article, and I must have left some part out. Solved now.

    not surprising. he's had run-ins and very robust disagreements with Tucker and Hannity. I saw the Tucker one the day it aired and he was out of line with Tucker and basically called him a Hitler apologist. It was a weird exchange really. He accused Tucker of chearing on Putin when all Tucker was doing is saying the enemy of our enemy is our friend when both parties are out to kill ISIS.

    Peters hates Iran, hates Assad and hates the entire middle east and didn't like it when Tucker tossed out there that his support of the Iraq war was a big freaking mess and perhaps our gov't needs to slow down and think before we act. Peteres wants to unseat Assad and when Tucker questioned whether we thought through again, rubbing his nose in past bad decisions showing that and he clearly hadn't thought it through, he got even more inflamed.

    He may be a conservative but is a war mongerer and doesn't like being questioned and calls those that disagree with him sympathizers of evil leaders. Tucker is a Pragmatic Libertarian and Peters is a Moralizing Neo-Conservative war hawk.

    He ate some truth sausages.

    I eat them all the time, very easy to find. $7.95 for a package at Costco.

    Truth is a difficult pill to swallow..... many object against it. It's always better in the long run.

    Indeed. Of course it isn’t like FOX News just suddenly became this way on Trump’s election. He neatly avoids taking any responsibility for his participation in a network that has been “fostering corrosive and unjustified paranoia” for a long time now.
