Ralph Peters, analyst for Fox News, has decided not to renew his contract with the network because he's ashamed of what the Fox News is doing. According to him, the once valuable conservative voice has become a propaganda machine for Trump, and is assaulting the constitutional order as well as rule of law, while fostering paranoia among its viewers. And it's really difficult to disagree with it.



Peter's wrote that "When prime-time hosts - who have never served our country in any capacity - dismiss facts and empirical reality to launch profoundly dishonest assaults on the FBI, the Justice Department, the courts, the intelligence community (in which I served) and, not least, a model public servant and genuine war hero such as Robert Mueller - all the while scaremongering with lurid warnings of 'deep-state' machinations - I cannot be part of the same organization, even at a remove. To me, Fox News is now wittingly harming our system of government for profit."

Peters served as Fox News national security analyst for 10 years, and in the past he often criticized President Obama. And that's okay, everything can be done up to a limit, and that's something that Fox News obviously has crossed already a long time ago. It is a propaganda machine and there's no question about that. To get everything out there, in 2015 Peters was actually suspended from the network for a week after using vulgar term to describe Obama's actions in combating terrorism. So he has been part of the propaganda machine himself, willingly. But everyone, or actually sadly just some people, seem to be able to come to their senses at some point in their lives.

Peters doesn't include Fox Business Network in his ravings, he said that Fox Business Network still has numerous hosts who retain a respect for facts and still know what integrity is. Neither does he condemn hard news reporters of Fox News, he says they are "talented professionals in a poisoned environment."

Weirdly enough, the network's answer to his letter was very PC - "Ralph Peters is entitled to his opinion despite the fact that he's choosing to use it as a weapon in order to gain attention. We are extremely proud of our top-rated prime-time hosts and all of our opinion programming."
