Liberal critics accuse Fox News of being “state TV.”
But they have it all wrong.
And now a former Fox News star revealed an ugly secret about the network and Donald Trump.
As Black Eye Politics reports:
Rob O’Neill is the Navy SEAL that killed Osama bin Laden.
O’Neill later served as a Fox News contributor.
In a series of tweets, O’Neill called out Fox News for colluding with the Deep State to undermine Donald Trump and lie about the war in Afghanistan.
O’Neill called out Fox News for the network’s decision desk’s early call of Arizona on election night which changed the narrative about the election to media proclaiming Joe Biden the inevitable winner.
“Just a reminder: @FoxNews called Arizona for Biden with less than 1%in. Just sayin’,” O’Neill tweeted.
Fox called Arizona for Joe Biden with just 73 percent of the vote in.
The final margin was just 12,000 votes and no other outlet called Arizona for days.
Critics contend that regardless of the outcome it was irresponsible for Fox to call such a close race with more than a quarter of the vote.
O’Neill also attacked Fox and the corporate media for lying to the American public about the mission in Afghanistan.
The former Navy SEAL blasted Fox News for going along with the Deep State lie that it was America’s mission to build stable democracy in Afghanistan when in reality the original goal was to drive out Al Qaeda and bring the 9/11 plotters to justice.
“You won’t hear this anywhere else: Our mission was never to ‘rebuild’ that shithole called Afghanistan. Generals, admirals, politicians and lawyers came up with that nonsense. That’s why we lost,” O’Neill stated.
“Seriously, don’t let @FoxNews fool you. They were in on it too. Personal power. They don’t care about you. It’s all about money. I care about you. They don’t,” O’Neill added.
Every time Donald Trump tried to withdraw troops from an endless war – be it Syria or Afghanistan – Fox News Channel’s anti-Trump correspondent Jennifer Griffin repeated the Deep State’s lies about Trump abandoning the battle and other false talking points.
O’Neill added that the faces that appeared on cable news and gleefully parroted the Deep State’s lies and talking points were not allies of the American people.
“I’ve been in the ditches and I’ve met the enemy. Face to face. These talking heads are not your friends,” O’Neill concluded.
Donald Trump lobbed many of these same complaints at Fox News in the final days of his presidency and once he was out of office.
Former Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill brought an insider’s perspective that confirmed many of Donald Trump and his supporters’ worst fears about Fox News Channel.
