SCANDLE, SCANDLE, SCANDLE. I don’t usually watch clips from Fox news but when I do it’s on Comedy Central. Sources with links to the justice department report that Fox News is under an FBI counterintelligence investigation for co-ordinating with the Kremlin in broadcasting propaganda. I think I am looking for a proper way to say no shit or duh! I mean it is Fox we are talking about. The network that invented fake news.
While the First Amendment guarantees freedom of speech and journalistic freedom, sources say that signals intelligence gathered from so-called ‘incidental collection,’ such as NSA collection on Sputnik and Russia Today, which is ongoing.
Specifically, Sean Hannity is on signals intelligence co-ordinating his pro-Trump message with organs of the Russian state, such as RT, Sputnik, Wikileaks and Julian Assange, Better Guns & Amo, KKK holiday flyer however, emails co-ordinating messaging with registered agents of the Russian state are said to exist from more shows than that of Sean Hannity.
Furthermore, sources familiar with the matter say that the FBI is actively considering a referral to the FCC, in addition to any criminal prosecutions that may result for individuals not registering under FARA for coordinating with official agents of the Russian state.

Fox News said Saturday that it has suspended Eric Bolling, the co-host of its late-afternoon news program “The Specialists,” while it investigates allegations he sent a lewd photo to co-workers.
A network spokesperson confirmed Bolling’s suspension and investigation in an email.
News of the suspension came one day after a Huff Post report relying on anonymous sources stated Bolling had sent a lewd photo to at least three female colleagues at Fox New and Fox Business.
“The anonymous, uncorroborated claims are untrue and terribly unfair,” Bolling’s attorney Michael J. Bowe wrote in an email. “We intend to fully cooperate with the investigation so that it can be concluded and Eric can return to work as quickly as possible.”
Bolling is the best-known personality on “The Specialists,” a program that airs weekdays at 5 p.m. EDT. The show replaced the network’s series “The Five” in April. He also hosts the weekend show “Cashin’ In.”
He joined Fox News in 2008 after working as a commodities trader, according to his bio on the network’s website.
Bolling has been a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump. In a March op-ed, he accused House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, and establishment Republicans of betraying the president with their version of a plan to overhaul the nation’s health system.
The suspension is the latest in a string of sexual harassment complaints against personalities who appear on Fox News and its business network.
In July, Fox Business Network host Charles Payne was suspended after the Los Angeles Times reported using anonymous sources that he harassed a female political analyst. Payne remains suspension while an investigation into the allegations continues.
WHAT A BAD FOX
Other harassment allegations have been leveled against Fox News’ former star, Bill O’Reilly, who was fired in April after several women reported being harassed by the host.
The network’s founding leader Roger Ailes resigned in July 2016 because of harassment allegations. He died in May after a fall at his home.
The United States attorney’s office is looking into the way Fox News handled payments related to sexual harassment cases to determine whether the company misled investors, according to the lawyer for a woman who is suing the network. At a hearing in New York State Supreme Court on Wednesday, the lawyer, Judd Burstein, who is representing the former Fox anchor Andrea Tantaros, said that another one of his clients had received a grand jury subpoena related to Fox News. He did not identify that client.
Mr. Burstein said in a text message that he believed federal investigators were looking at whether Fox News structured sexual harassment settlement claims by paying them out in salaries, “so as not to have to report them.”He added that the prosecutors had identified themselves as being from a securities fraud division of the United States attorney’s office in Manhattan.
Gretchen Carlson of Fox News Files Harassment Suit Against Roger Ailes In a statement, Fox News said it had not received a subpoena but had “been in communication with the U.S. attorney’s office for months.” The statement added that Fox “will continue to cooperate on all inquiries with any interested authorities.” The prospect of another round of criminal investigations this summer remicent to last summers investigastions that lead to the much overdue departure of its chairman, Roger Ailes is by no way a surprise. After reaching a $20 million settlement with former anchor Gretchen Carlson who sued Mr. Ailes, and conducted an internal investigation into his conduct, the company tried hard to put the episode in the background.
Mr. Ailes has denied the sexual harassment allegations. Ms. Tantaros’s suit asserts that the network’s newsroom resembled “a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult.” The suit named a number of Fox News executives in addition to Mr. Ailes, accusing them of marginalizing her and removing her from the air after she complained. Fox News denied the charges, saying that Ms. Tantaros was let go for violating her contract by writing a book without approval.
The United States attorney’s office declined to comment. “The court granted Fox News’s motion to send Andrea Tantaros’s case to arbitration, where it always belonged, and rejected her counsel Judd Burstein’s histrionics.”Asked whether Mr. Ailes had received a subpoena, Susan Estrich, his lawyer, declined to comment.

Fox News’s parent company, 21st Century Fox, hired the law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison to conduct an investigation, and a number of other women stepped forward with similar accusations, including the former Fox star Megyn Kell.
FOX NEWS HALL OF SHAME
In an explosive report in April, the New York Times claimed that Fox News settled five sexual harassment and verbal abuse lawsuits against its top-rated host, Bill O’Reilly, since 2002. The payments totaled $13 million, according to the report.
O’Reilly said that he had agreed to the settlements to ensure his family wasn’t embarrassed by the allegations being aired in public.
Advertisers abandoned his prime time show, and after announcing he would be taking a two week break to return late April, on April 19 it was announced O’Reilly would not be returning to front his show.
The co-president of the channel, Shine resigned on May 1 amid the fallout from the harassment allegations. Shine was accused in several lawsuits of failing to take action to stop sexual harassment at the company.
According to reports, he is currently in contention for the White `House communications director role recently vacated by Anthony Scaramucci.
Reuters reported that Shine’s departure was part of a concerted effort by 21st Century Fox owner Rupert Murdoch to clean up the station following the revelations.
In April, Fox News host Jesse Waters announced he was taking an unannounced vacation, after being accused of making lewd remarks about President Trump’s daughter, and White House adviser, Ivanka Trump.
“It’s funny, the left says they really respect women, and then when given an opportunity to respect a woman like that, they boo and hiss,’ he remarked on air about a meeting in Berlin where Ivanka Trump faced a critical audience.
“So I don’t really get what’s going on here, but I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone.”
In July, Fox Business suspended presenter Charles Payne, after he was accused of sexual harassment by former network guest Scottie Nell Hughes.
After Payne admitted conducting a three year romantic affair with Hughes, Hughes said that she thought the relationship would help her obtain a permanent position at the network, and that her appearances on Fox drastically reduced after she ended the affair in 2015.
Fox says Democrates are going to take away your Bible. If you believe them your an idiot.
Fox News says the Democrats are going to take away your guns. If you believe that your an armed idiot.
And if you think that the Democrats are going to take away your guns and burn your bibles and give Mexico all your Jobs your Bill O’Reilly.
Yes, Ole Bill known in the halls of Fox broadcasting as Chester The Molester. Remember the first thing a cult or cult leader does is tell you over and over everyone but them are lying to you.
In conclustion war is not peace, freedom is not slavery, ignorance is not strength and Fox is not news.
