Fox News having anything to do with propaganda and Russia? Nah! Must be a mistake. :rolleyes: I wonder if Tucker Carlson will touch this story?



As the United States increasingly goes after some of the Kremlin’s business tentacles, the latest person arrested for violating U.S. sanctions against Russia is less notable for his ties to Vladimir Putin than his old ties to Sean Hannity—he is a former Fox News producer who left to launch a Russian propaganda network.



The Financial Times in 2015 analyzed how Malofeyev launched his “conservative yet modern spin on global news” in an attempt to mimic the rise of Fox News. Then, in 2018, the online news site Salon called out Hanick for joining the Russian operation, noting that he had previously served as Hannity’s director at Fox News.

Hanick got his start at Fox News when it first launched in 1996. Fifteen years later, in 2011, he left. Three years later, he joined forces with Malofeyev’s Russian propaganda operation. The Justice Department now wants to extradite him from the United Kingdom to New York City.

So he hadn't worked for Fox for years? How does that reflect back on Fox?

I'm a bit disappointed. I thought this would be right up there with CNN pedos.

You didn't mention this guys ties to Hillary Clinton. It's strongly rumored that this fellow walked out in front of Hillary's limo a few years back, and she rolled down the window and told him to get the He-- out of her way.

Can't pin any of this on Lumpy or Fox News, certainly.

But it makes on wonder what sort of underhanded deals Hanick was working while he was at Fox News?

Who knew that Fox's ole very popular ex-talking head would recognize propaganda fermenting over the last few years.


  • The former Fox News host said his former network was spreading what he called "propaganda."

The former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly criticized the network for broadcasting what he called "propaganda" unchallenged, and praised a correspondent who forcefully fact-checked guests who promoted misleading narratives about Russia's invasion of Ukraine.


In comments on his online show, O'Reilly.Com, on Tuesday, he was critical of the direction that his former network and other news organizations had taken in recent years.

However, he was full of praise for Jennifer Griffin, Fox News' security correspondent, who has pushed back against talking heads on Fox News who were making unsubstantiated claims about the crisis in Ukraine.

Interesting?

Wonder if he would be this disgruntled if he was still their top dog?

He left fox news in 2011 according to the article. Then 3 years later he started the new job.

Okay... . So damn what? Nothing to do with FOX.

If the guy broke the law he is probably in trouble?

Because Orange Man Bad.
Because Orange Man publicly shills for Putin. I am glad I can go to bed every night knowing that I have never supported anyone that showers a scumbag like Putin with praise.

As to this story, you have to wonder why a lot of these Fox opinion personalities shill for Putin so much? Hell, Tucker Carlson has all but publicly blown Putin. I am about as far from conspiracy minded as it gets, but seriously, wtf?

From the article

"As the United States increasingly goes after some of the Kremlin’s business tentacles, the latest person arrested for violating U.S. sanctions against Russia is less notable for his ties to Vladimir Putin than his old ties to Sean Hannity—he is a former Fox News producer who left to launch a Russian propaganda network."

What kind of shithole employee leaves his Hannity job to start a Russian propaganda network? I wonder how a Hannity producer got Russian propaganda expertise?

1. Produce Hannity.

2. Start Russian Propaganda Network

3. Profit

4. Hello Prison

Again, he hasn't worked for Hannity/Fox for years. Your list doesn't change that, but suggests you have some serious Fox issues.
