In December 23, 2013, Mike Scheuer, a former CIA officer and analyst for CBS News, wrote a column for his website, Non-Intervention.com. In it, he called for the assassination of Prime Minister David Cameron and President Obama. As of August 4, 2014, FOX “News” still employs him as a guest analyst.
In his column, Scheuer wrote that:
“As they head further down the road of losing wars and wrecking Anglo-American liberties, Messrs Obama and Cameron and their supporters in all parties would do well to read the words of the great 17th century English republican Algernon Sidney, a man who was revered on both sides of the Atlantic, who greatly influenced America’s founders, and who was executed by the British Crown for what it described as sedition. ‘There must therefore be a right,’ Sidney wrote…
…If he [a political leader] be justly accounted an enemy of all, who injures all; he above all must be the publick enemy of a nation, who by usurping power over them, does the greatest and most publick injury that a people can suffer. For which reason, by an established law among the most virtuous nations, every man might kill a tyrant; and no names are recorded in history with more honor, than of those who did it.”
According to Media Matters, however, Scheuer is still a welcome guest on FOX:
Just 10 days after the column was published, Scheuer appeared on Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs Tonight to accuse Hillary Clinton of “effectively murdering” the Americans who died during the 2012 attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya. According to a Media Matters search, Scheuer has appeared on Fox Business at least twice since, on Lou Dobbs Tonight June 9 and on Money July 18.
Fox News Channel — which hosted Scheuer dozens of times before his validation of attempts to assassinate the president — has continued to invite Scheuer on in recent months. Fox & Friends Sunday invited the former CIA officer on in June, and after having appeared on the weekday edition of Fox & Friends in February, the show invited him back August 1.
FOX should have zero credibility at this point; however, like a cult leader who’s routinely debunked by skeptics, FOX continues onward, preying on peoples’ cognitive blind spots by promising them empty lies and giving them rage and hate to feed on.
