Veterans Group To Pentagon: Ban Fox News On Military Bases - HuffPo

"Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity have “open access to spread conspiracy theories to U.S. troops," warns VoteVets.

VoteVets ad slammed the conservative network’s prime-time hosts Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity for knowingly pushing the baseless claim that the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump. “The most valuable weapon to the enemy is disinformation. That’s why the Pentagon spends hundreds of millions training our troops to resist it. Yet, at the same time, the U.S. military uses taxpayer-funded facilities to broadcast disinformation on military bases, knowingly letting false propaganda infiltrate the ranks.” - HuffPo

Fox News Spreads Putin's 'Propaganda and Lies'

Liz Cheney criticized Fox News for having retired Army Colonel Douglas Macgregor, who has made controversial comments about Russia's war in Ukraine, on as a guest. "Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch - Why do you continually put Douglas MacGregor on @FoxNews to spread Putin's propaganda and lies? This is absolutely not in America's interest," Cheney said in a tweet referring to the Murdochs, who control Fox Corporation.

Cheney previously blasted Macgregor over comments he made about the war in Ukraine and said the retired colonel was part of the "Putin wing of the GOP." The first round of criticism came after Macgregor said during an interview with Fox Business in March that Russian forces had initially been "too gentle" in Ukraine and that he thought Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was a "puppet" who was "putting huge numbers of his own population in unnecessary risk." At the very beginning of the invasion of Ukraine, Cheney also accused Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Trump and Mike Pompeo of "praising Putin."

American University Digital Research Archive (AUDRA)

"As of 2021, the United States controlled around 750 "base sites" outside the 50 U.S. states and Washington, D.C., located in around 80 foreign countries and colonies. The sheer number of bases and the secrecy and lack of transparency of the base network make a complete list impossible." Copyright David Vine 2021. Anyone is free to use and cite this data.
